- Product safety thanks to a proven hardware and software platform
- Control of two BLDC engines with a single control device possible
Fuel Supply Unit
The fuel supply unit is an essential component of the fuel system. Consisting of a pump, filter and flange, as well as the relevant connections, and also be fitted with a lever indicator.
- Increased performance through the use of a BLDC motor
- Integrated functions (pressure control, lifetime main fuel filter, fuel level measurement, fuel supply, management of the tank hydraulics for single and multi-chamber tanks)
- Customer-specific modification of flange
- Continual or need-based fuel supply as variants
- Modular development facilitates customer-specific applications
- Cost-effective solution through adaptation or integration of flange
The control device combines sensors and actuators from automatic transmissions is a fixed part of transmission control. The software’s control and regulator algorithms and diagnostics functions are set in the device’s microcontroller and power output stages for the actuator are fixed part of the control device.
- Control device as external assembly unit for different integration requirements realisable. Sensors and actuators are connected via cable harnesses
- Control device as attached-to assembly unit realisable (can also be mounted directly to transmission)
- The control device as integrated assembly group realisable, as it is an integral transmission component
- Modern production processes enable manufacture of control devices in both small and high-volume series
- Function software consists of platform components and is therefore independent of the realisation of the control device.
Automatic transmissions require a variety of sensors for gathering physical measurements. These include RPM, pressure, temperature, route, and angle sensors. Sensors require the relevant positioning in the transmission and electrical connection to the control device.
- Grouping individual sensors in assembly units
- Transmission-specific creation
- Tested units: testing in accordance with integration situation in transmission
- Elimination of individual housing for sensors, electrical connections optimised to integration situation
- Cost, availability and weight advantages
- Adjustments during integration in transmission no longer necessary
Smart actuators are fitted with smart powertrain electronics, capable of independently setting positions or rotation speeds. Examples of this are smart water pumps and turbocharger general-purpose actuators (GPA).
- Autonomous adjustment independent of engine operation
- Increased performance through the use of a BLDC engines
- Integrated self-diagnostics
- Simplified motor control (ECU) through outsourcing in mechatronic systems
- Performance and efficiency optimisation
