Dayco and Physis partner to develop hybrid electric vehicle modules

Dayco has entered a strategic partnership with motion control & energy conversion specialist, Physis, to further develop hybrid system solutions for light and heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers across the globe.

Dayco says its system know-how and integration capabilities coupled with Physis’ capabilities in the field of motion control will allow it to provide a highly optimised and efficient Dayco Hybrid Module (DHM), for P2 hybrid architecture electrifying both light and heavy-duty hybrid vehicles as well as improving the system performance and reliability.

“For more than a decade, Dayco has supplied components and sub-systems for BSG mild-hybrid powertrains, also known as P0 Architecture, that continuously improve fuel savings and reduce CO2 emissions while maintaining durability,” says Wouter Nijenhuis, executive vice president of OE sales and business development for Dayco.

He adds: “Together with Physis, Dayco continues to advance the electrification of vehicles. Our core product and R&D teams are laser-focused on system integration and delivering best-in-class hybrid electric drives that provide industry leading efficiency and performance.

“We are committed to investing in research and development and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to provide best in class and environment friendly technologies to our customers.”

Modular, compact, and scalable, Dayco says DHM electrifies an extensive line of both light and heavy-duty hybrid vehicles with the end goal being electrification and hybridisation in the most efficient and sustainable manner.

Dependent upon customer needs, Dayco adds that there are unique solutions that meet exact specifications from low (48V) to high (800V) voltage solutions; and, DHM can either be fully integrated or added as a bolt-on solution to existing powertrains.
