Marantec Group and CEDES enter into IoT partnership

February 19th 2024

The Marantec Group and CEDES are teaming up in the field of IoT for doors and gates. The partnership will be presented to the public at the world's leading trade show R&T in Stuttgart (19 – 23.02.2024) and involves maveo, the proven IoT brand of the family-owned German company.

In this partnership, three pioneers in their respective disciplines come together: the Marantec Group as a specialist for drive and control technology, CEDES, a specialist in safety and sensor technology, and maveo as an IoT specialist in the field of drives for garage and industrial door systems within the Marantec Group.

CEDES, traditionally specialized in light barriers and optical sensors in the elevator and industrial door sector, has expanded its product range for industrial door safeguarding in recent years, taking over the door sensor specialist Vitector in order to build up know-how in this area. Today marks the official start of the cooperation with the Marantec Group in the direction of IoT.

The first step of the cooperation is the development of an IoT prototype that combines CEDES‘ know-how in sensor technology and data analysis with Marantec’s longstanding expertise in drive and control technology as well as in IoT. The project will be presented for the first time at the world's leading trade show R&T at the CEDES booth (Hall 8, Booth 8C48). This collaboration opens up numerous new application scenarios through the smart combination of existing technologies.

Andreas Schiemann (CEO Marantec Group) is enthusiastic about the cooperation: “We are proud of the trusting relationship with CEDES. This is where two pioneers and leading companies meet on an equal footing to tap the full potential of a future technology. CEDES is an expert in the field of sensor technology and we as the Marantec Group are experts in the field of drives and controls. The perfect recipe for successful IoT cooperation. As ”Open Champions“, we are always open to exactly this kind of collaboration.”

Bernd Kagerer (President Entrance Automation CEDES) is excited about new opportunities that this cooperation opens up for the future: “The combination of Marantec and CEDES can certainly serve as an example of a successful partnership in the door industry. Both companies are open to expanding the cooperation. In this context, I am very much looking forward to the discussions at the R&T trade show.”
