The door management system is suitable for all doors because it is manufacturer-independent. Our intelligent system solution calculates the optimal drive characteristics for a door automatically, and ensures that these are continuously maintained – in accordance with the guidelines of the respective application. The data generated during operation can be read out and evaluated locally or globally in order to avoid unnecessary maintenance work and downtime. Corresponding communication interfaces can be easily supplemented thanks to the independence of the door system.
