TTControl – TTTech Off-Highway, which specializes in electronic control systems for off-highway vehicles, today announces a cooperation agreement with Linreco AB, the Swedish electronics company. Together with its new Swedish distribution partner, the company plans to expand its business in Northern Europe. The arrangement with TTControl will allow Linreco to offer its customers a broad range of advanced control systems and components from TTControl’s portfolio.
“TTControl is a perfect partner for us. It will enable us to offer systems with greater flexibility and compatibility for advanced applications and technologies,” said Lars Erikson, managing director of Linreco. The Swedish company provides high-quality electronic components and systems for the vehicle industry, with a focus on measurement and control. Linreco manages projects for development and integration of electronic control systems, in close cooperation with hardware and software manufacturers.
In collaboration with TTControl, Linreco is now able to offer various cost-efficient options for programming electronic control units. TTControl’s hardware and software platforms improve complexity management and optimize the development process for control systems. The electronic control units can be used in CAN networks as well as in high-availability hardware based on Time-Triggered-Protocol (TTP).
TTControl products support a broad range of standardized modeling environments such as CoDeSys, which is one of the most common IEC 61131-3 programming systems for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and industrial controllers. In addition, TTControl supports MATLAB/Simulink, which is widely used for the development of complex control algorithms.
C programming can be used for designing distributed CAN control systems.
TTControl hardware and software solutions fulfill both common and safety-critical functions. As a provider of complete systems, TTControl offers the entire product range of embedded communication and control systems for off-highway vehicles from one source. This includes LIN-based panels, monitors with programmable control keys, encoders and touch screens.
