The BRM transforms any conventional internal combustion engine into an efficient mild-hybrid with minimal effort: The 48V BRM replaces the 12V generator in its space on the drive belt (P0 topology), so there is no need for extensive application effort orcomplex and expensive high-voltage protection systems or wiring harnesses.
As a result, the BRM offers a significant reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – up to 15% under real world driving conditions – at very low overall cost.
The BRM is so efficient that it has been recognized as an EU eco-innovation. This enables manufacturers to receive an additional credit of up to 1.4g CO2/km (WLTP).
For even higher demands, our 48V e-machine platform unlocks further savings and e-driving potential. It allows recuperation comparable to high voltage HEVs (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) level and therefore CO2 reductions up to 25%, but at a much lower cost. With > 25 kW generating power, the e-machine is also powerful enough to provide a meaningful boost to support the combustion engine, or even allow for fully electric driving at low speeds.
The EM machines for 48V are part of our flexible e-machine concept, which allows us to leverage economies of scale. We have a high performance toolchain in place to fulfil the specific needs of our customer application with high efficiency and reliability. This spans the entire product lifecycle – from established processes in application and software development to robust manufacturing – leading to customized solutions at competitive prices.
