Charged EVs | ZF introduces electrical drive for industrial automobiles


ZF has launched a number of new e-mobility methods designed for industrial automobiles, together with an electrical drive, a car energy take-off system and an influence steering system.

The CeTrax 2 electrical drive consists of two oil-cooled e-motors, two 800 V SiC inverters and a three-speed gearbox. The modular system designed for heavy-duty automobiles supplies steady energy of 360 kW and peak torque of 24,700 Nm for automobiles weighing as much as 44 tons.

“With all elements built-in inside a compact single unit, CeTrax 2 permits producers to supply each standard ICE and electrical drivelines on the identical car platform,” says the corporate. “Along with enabling the faster electrification of current car platforms, it allows excessive energy and torque, light-weight design (roughly 385 kg) and enhanced e-drive effectivity of as much as 96 %.”

ZF says it is going to be produced beginning in 2023.

The eWorX electrical energy take-off system is designed to energy the on-board work tools of business automobiles.

“As a totally built-in system, eWorX gives important worth for car and physique producers as a modular, standardized and clever system that mixes all of the features required for the electrification of on-board tools in a single compact unit,” says ZF.

ZF’s Electrical Energy Steering (EPS) system is designed for coaches, metropolis buses and medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

“Constructed to the best Automotive Security Integrity Degree (ASIL D), accessible in 24 V and 48 V variants and supporting outputs as much as 8,000 Nm, the modular EPS has a scalable design, assembly various packaging necessities,” says ZF.

EPS additionally helps steer-by-wire and as much as Degree 5 autonomy.

“As an lively steering system, EPS can combine with ADAS to assist security features together with, for instance, steady lane-keeping,” says the corporate.
