BorgWarner showcases electrification innovations

BorgWarner presented its commercial vehicle electrification portfolio at the recent IAA Transportation 2022 show in Germany.

The company showcased a series of new solutions, such as the high-energy flat battery system, which features novel flat module architecture.

It has a height of just under 120mm to adapt to the underbody architectures of electrified lightweight commercial vehicles and buses.

The company also presented its new modular high-voltage eFan system, which can be combined with either existing cooling fans or new customised fan designs to achieve highest efficiency and lowest noise.

A powerful electric motor is combined with an inverter to provide a continuous output of 40kW between 550V and 850V to cool components such as the fuel cell, traction motor, electric brake, or the battery pack in battery-electric or fuel-cell commercial vehicles.

The robust and fully encapsulated design enables reliable long-term operation even under extreme conditions.
