Innovations are the foundation of our Company and the mobility of tomorrow. We systematically promote innovations, provide our employees with the necessary conditions and engage in close interaction with strong partners from research, teaching, and business. We have the courage to make changes and promote innovations in the profound belief that we can achieve a great deal using our own strength. We also invest specifically in new technologies and business areas. It is not for nothing that Smart Solutions are one of the three pillars of our Corporate Strategy. They lead directly to impressing our clients and give us joy in our work.
The mobility of tomorrow must be clean and sustainable. At the same time, users, whether in passenger cars, on trains, buses or on future modes of transport, expect a high level of ease of use and the comfort factor. This is precisely where we come in. Thermal management solutions from Eberspächer ensure optimum temperatures in vehicles of various kinds – in tropical heat and the bitter cold. In battery electric vehicles, a special kind of environmentally-friendly heating concepts is required as they must not put too much strain on the traction battery so as to maintain as great a range as possible. We also employ our expertise from heating and cooling in exhaust technology. In hybrid drives, the internal combustion engine cannot permanently maintain the optimum temperature due to switching between the electric drive and combustion engine. Or it loses it again when the engine control system switches from the internal combustion engine in urban traffic back to the electric drive. If the internal combustion engine is too cold, the exhaust system cannot work efficiently. Eberspächer develops reliable solutions here to guarantee optimum temperature control in the exhaust gas purification system. The electrification of mobility is making autonomous driving more important. The components from Eberspächer Automotive Controls ensure safety on the road and the efficient use of the available energy.
Low-temperature exhaust conditions
ACTIVE HEATING SOLUTIONS
State-of-the-art systems and components in the field of exhaust gas aftertreatment help to comply with the strict limits of global emissions legislation. Great potential lies here particularly in the cold start phase and in the low-load range. With the Active Heating approach, Purem by Eberspächer offers innovative solutions for clean mobility. The EHC Fractal Heater is an electric heating component that increases the efficiency of exhaust emission conversion and reduces over 90 percent of pollutants.
Efficient Balance of Plant Components
GAS CONTROL VALVE
The Gas Control Valve is the first in-house development for fuel cell systems from the exhaust and acoustic specialist. The Balance of Plant component safely routes airflow and pressure and optimizes the operation of the overall system in terms of output and service life time. The basis for the development of the component was a product from the company’s own acoustics development, which was adapted to the new requirements.
Ensuring Comfort in Recreational Vehicles
BREEZONIC ROOFTOP AIR CONDITIONER
Compact dimensions, low weight, and maximum power efficiency: The product family Breezonic ensures as rooftop mounted air conditioning system with heat pump function highest comfort in recreational vehicles. For the summer and transitional seasons, the solution combines heating and cooling as needed via reverse circulation. The used R32 refrigerant is far more environmentally friendly than the more common R410A. An intuitive usage is guaranteed by the respective app.
Climate-friendly heating and cooling
AC138 EVO THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The AC138 EVO platform especially for hybrid and battery electric buses convinces as a rooftop air conditioner with low system complexity and high energy efficiency due to the patented heat pump technology. The integrated exhaust air function allows energy recovery from the outflowing air. Optimal temperature regulation is ensured by the independent control of the air flaps.
Modular filter system
CABIN PRESSURE SYSTEM K PROTEC MODULAR
With the K Protec Modular cabin pressure system, driver safety always comes first: The overpressure generated and the filter system prevent pollutants and dust particles from entering the cabin. The modularity of the setup makes it possible to switch between a category 4 filter and a category 2 filter.
Comfort and efficiency
Electrical heaters ensure pleasant temperatures within the vehicles and the conditioning of the high-voltages battery of BEVs, PHEVs and FCEVs. Our product portfolio of standard and customized solutions includes low- and high-voltage coolant and air heaters as well as interior-placed heaters. The PTC technology used guarantees a high level in intrinsic safety against overheating.
In the digital age, simple products are transitioning towards networked systems that make users’ lives easier through intelligent solutions. Eberspächer offers digital services that give its clients the opportunity to establish new business models in the field of networked systems. The Eberspächer Digital Platform e-connected is a cloud-based solution to develop networked applications and implement digital business models. It combines the hardware in a wide range of application areas, analyzes their data, and specifically provides our clients with the most important information. Customized services can also be mapped on customer request without our clients having to develop and operate a dedicated system landscape.
