Smartcard-controlled training system

Fitness training system

Milon is devoted to making fitness equipment safer, more comfortable, and more effective.

In 1986 Milon was the first provider of electronically controlled fitness equipment and one of the first companies in Europe to introduce smartcards.

The Application

What differentiates Milon is its invention of the memory function that ensures fitness equipment automatically adjusts to a particular user when a smartcard is inserted. The combination of three innovations in small form factor circuitry and housing – smartcard, electronics, and memory function –is unique worldwide.

The Solution

PHYTEC collaborated with Milon early in the development cycle to identify key peripherals to success and thereby remove excess components not needed for its application. Combined with a custom-designed carrier board for both the phyCORE-i.MX35 and phyCPRE-i.MX 6, PHYTEC helped Milon reduce ongoing materials costs and increase margin.

As the market leader for smartcard-controlled training systems, we need professional partners that we can rely on for development of our premium products. We have found an ideal partner in PHYTEC. PHYTEC, with its flexible working approach, has already supported us throughout the conceptual phase. This particularly applies to adherence to delivery dates. We were able to benefit from PHYTEC’s extensive experience during the commissioning of the first prototypes. They were able to accommodate final requests for changes easily and promptly implemented them due to the manufacturing facility in Germany.

The pleasant working relationship and comprehensive support enabled target-oriented and professional cooperation. This is important because if you want to set standards, you cannot accept compromises
