Safe electric systems for plug-in and mild hybrids
The coasting function is part of the drive concept of hybrid vehicles. The start-stop system turns off the combustion engine not only when the vehicle is at a standstill, but as it is coasting too. Safety functions such as the power steering and brake booster are powered electrically when coasting. When the engine is restarted, they need to be protected. The solution: the Q-Diode 2 from Eberspächer Controls Landau isolates the starter battery from the rest of the 12 Volt vehicle electric system in less than 100 microseconds, so preventing voltage drops as the combustion engine restarts. With approximately 1.2 million switching cycles, the product is ideally equipped to handle large numbers of starts. It switches currents of up to 250 amperes, with no mechanical wear. The Q-Diode 2 is also well suited to use in hybrid vehicles thanks to its patent-pending self-diagnosis system.
Gasoline particulate filters make gasoline vehicles cleaner
A new level of the Euro 6 emissions standard will come into force for all newly type-certified passenger cars within the European Union in September 2017. Its provisions include a reduction in particulate limits for gasoline vehicles with direct fuel injection engines. Almost one in two gasoline vehicles is fitted with this type of engine. However, this combustion method does result in increased emissions of soot particles. The Eberspächer gasoline particulate filters counteract that effect, filtering the soot particles out of the exhaust gas flow. Using the special filters means the soot particle content in the exhaust gas is well below the legal limit. As a result, the systems conform to the upcoming level of the Euro 6 emissions standard. Eberspächer developed the exhaust system based on the tried and proven technology of the diesel particulate filter. The soot particles are automatically deposited on the porous surface, so greatly reducing emissions.
Caravan Salon – independent heating in recreational vehicles easily via app
Eberspächer will be presenting its latest Hydronic S3 Economy pre-heater for recreational vehicles in hall 13, stand A 11 at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf from 25 August until 3 September 2017. The water heater can be controlled easily using a smartphone app or – thanks to the new Eberspächer add-on – also using a smartwatch. When it is swelteringly hot outside, Ebercool evaporative cooling systems ensure a cool and refreshing climate in your RV. The Ebercool Holiday G3.5 has had a facelift: The new display with improved menu navigation allows for intuitive operation. This year’s highlight: Scottish biking professional and Eberspächer brand ambassador Danny MacAskill, himself an enthusiastic owner of a motorhome, will visit the trade fair during his Drop and Roll Tour and greet his fans at the Eberspächer stand.
