BorgWarner pow­ers FUSO eCan­ter trucks

Auto components India - - CONTENTS -

BorgWarner, a global leader in clean and ef­fi­cient tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions for com­bus­tion, hy­brid and elec­tric ve­hi­cles, sup­plies its HVH250 elec­tric mo­tor and eGearDrive trans­mis­sion for the ini­tial launch of the FUSO eCan­ter truck, the world’s first se­ries-pro­duced all-elec­tric light-duty truck.

Ac­cord­ing to FUSO, over 200 third­gen­er­a­tion units are be­ing tested in ur­ban ar­eas. BorgWarner’s scal­able HVH250 elec­tric mo­tors de­liver in­dus­trylead­ing torque and power den­sity. With a com­pact, low-weight de­sign and highly ef­fi­cient gear train, BorgWarner’s eGearDrive trans­mis­sion uses less bat­tery en­ergy, ex­tend­ing bat­tery-pow­ered driv­ing range.

“For sev­eral years, BorgWarner’s en­gi­neers worked closely with FUSO on this mile­stone project. We are ex­cited to of­fer our ef­fi­cient, eco-friendly tech­nolo­gies as FUSO paves the way for pow­er­ful and sus­tain­able com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle mo­bil­ity.” Ste­fan Dem­merle, Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, BorgWarner Pow­erDrive Sys­tems, said

In­stead of con­ven­tional round wire wind­ings, BorgWarner’s HVH250 elec­tric mo­tor uses pre­ci­sion-formed rec­tan­gu­lar wires and mul­ti­ple lay­ers of in­ter­lock­ing “hair­pins.” This patented high volt­age hair­pin (HVH) tech­nol­ogy en­ables the HVH250 mo­tor to pro­duce up to 425 Nm of torque and 300 kW of power at 700 volts. Fea­tur­ing a com­pact de­sign for easy in­te­gra­tion, the HVH250 elec­tric mo­tor de­liv­ers class-lead­ing ef­fi­ciency of over 95% and pro­vides bet­ter con­tin­u­ous power com­pared with com­pet­i­tive mod­els. BorgWarner’s fam­ily of HVH elec­tric mo­tors is de­signed for flex­i­bil­ity, of­fer­ing scal­able torque and out­put for a range of light- to heavy-duty ap­pli­ca­tions.

The eGearDrive trans­mis­sion’s com­pact, low-weight de­sign and highly ef­fi­cient gear train achieves high-torque ca­pac­ity yet uses less bat­tery en­ergy. In ad­di­tion to han­dling high in­put speeds of up to 14,000 rpm, the ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy of­fers a wide range of gear re­duc­tion ra­tios for op­ti­mal ac­cel­er­a­tion for a va­ri­ety of mo­tor sizes. An op­tional elec­tron­i­cally ac­tu­ated park lock sys­tem is avail­able, and since ap­prox­i­mately 99% of the ma­te­ri­als used in the eGearDrive trans­mis­sion are re­cy­clable, the tech­nol­ogy also en­hances sus­tain­abil­ity.
