Well prepared for the automotive winter with Eberspächer pre-heaters
Enjoy your morning coffee, then get into a comfortably pre-heated vehicle – at minus temperatures, it’s not a matter of fact. Or is it? All a driver needs is an Eberspächer heater and the appropriate EasyStart Web operating unit. This allows the user to conveniently control their heater from the breakfast table – with any internet-enabled device from a laptop to a smartwatch. Mornings are not only more comfortable, but also safer with a pre-heater: clear windows ensure a full view all round and pleasant temperatures make thick winter coats unnecessary. As a result, the seat belt fits better and you enjoy more freedom of movement. What’s more: Clear windows and a pre-heated interior are not a question of vehicle size or budget. Eberspächer offers car drivers a product tailored to their needs.
„Safety first“ with autonomous driving
Automated vehicles require one thing above all: reliability and stable electrical systems. To secure safety-relevant functions such as braking and electrical steering assistance, is one of the main requirements for tomorrow´s mobility. The solution: Intelligent switching systems from Eberspaecher, that separate electrical system sections safely in case of voltage surges or sags. The Automotive Controls division offers this safety for autonomous vehicles up to future level 5 requirements. The Autonomous Driving Safety Switch is used in 12 volt electrical systems with at least two energy sources. In fully automated vehicles with high-voltage/low-voltage on-board circuits, the Battery and Boardnet Safety Module provides an intelligent distribution of current and ensures a reliable power supply for safety-relevant components. The systems advantages are an ASIL D classified combination of a microcontroller and system basis chip as well as the customer-specific control software. Further information
ActiveSilence® – noise reduction by Active Noise Cancellation
Noise emissions from vehicles are subject to legal limits. To comply with those limits, exhaust system mufflers must be designed specifically for individual vehicle applications. Conventional exhaust systems need ever larger mufflers in order to meet the requirements. Eberspächer's ActiveSilence® exhaust systems are more compact, and eliminate impermissible noise components. That is done using Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology: a targeted counter-noise overlays and neutralizes unwanted sound waves. In the passenger car sector this technology results in savings of up to 60 percent on muffler size and up to 40 percent on weight. It also cuts CO2 emissions, and the vehicle is made quieter.
