BorgWarner continues to drive
electrification into the commercial vehicle market segment with its powerful
High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) 410 electric motors. The advanced and highly
efficient technology propels Scania’s new Citywide hybrid bus for urban areas.
Positioned between the clutch and gearbox in a P2 layout, the 650-volt electric
motor drives the vehicle at low speeds when enough energy is available.
motor also charges the battery by generating power while braking or driving
downhill, and supports the shifting sequence in the automatic mode of automated
manual transmissions. With their clean, quiet operation, HVH410 electric motors
allow buses to operate in zero emission zones and noise sensitive areas.
“Hybrid and electric
technologies aren’t just for passenger cars. As a key enabler for parallel
hybrid drive concepts for commercial vehicles, BorgWarner’s HVH410 electric
motors help meet both market demands and emissions regulations,” said Dr.
Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems.
“This application, as well as our development partnership for future programs
with Scania, expands our comprehensive hybrid and electric product portfolio
and reinforces our strong reputation as a global leader in clean and efficient
technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles,” he added.
BorgWarner’s HVH410 electric
motors are available as fully housed motors or as rotor/stator assemblies.
Featuring the patented HVH stator winding technology, the versatile and powerful
electric motors deliver a maximum torque of 2,000 Nm and a power output of up
to 300 kW (402 hp) with peak efficiencies of over 95 percent. In addition,
their compact dimensions and individually customizable stack length, cooling
and winding configurations facilitate easy integration into almost all electric
and hybrid applications. As a result, BorgWarner can provide its customers with
tailor-made solutions to fit their specific requirements.
