Short after the establishment of the European Design Center (EDC), the EMEA Electrics and control department was created. It is one of the fastest growing departments in order to facilitate and ensure the strong future growth of Daikin. This department is located in Gent, Technology Park.

Today the role of this new department is twofold:

1.       Develop embedded software & hardware: we develop and cooperate with external partners to enhance our products, keeping them amongst the best in the industry. Also we prepare them to connect to each other to step into the Internet of Things (IoT) era. Typical examples are: a new User Interface on our Altherma products, gateways to connect to our cloud and Apps and a stylish new hotel thermostat with App control.

2.       Cloud and App development: we are developing together with our partners  our cloud platform to control and monitor our complete product range. Especially for the residential market, we are in the process to incorporate the products into one App. Typical examples are: the Daikin Online controller App and the Daikin Cloud Service for our commercial products..

These developments are only possible with the help of the supporting sections: Innovation & maintenance and testing & infrastructure.
