As part of its efforts to electrify critical off-highway machinery, Bosch Rexroth has announced a partnership with leading thermal management manufacturer Modine. The two organizations are collaborating to bring Modine EVantage thermal management systems to the Bosch Rexroth portfolio of eLION products for electrified off-highway machinery worldwide. Together, Rexroth eLION systems with Modine EVantage thermal management systems advance the electrification of customer platforms in the off-highway segment by delivering low emissions and high-performance EV technology.
“With the increased shift toward electrified mobile machines, there’s a parallel need to efficiently manage the thermal output of those crucial components,” said Zifan Liu, Bosch Rexroth mobile hydraulics system engineer. “This partnership represents a collaborative effort to effectively address that issue and present end users with the most productive machine possible.”
Bosch Rexroth worked with Modine because of its specialization in complete commercial EV thermal management systems. Modine designed a fully integrated, liquid-cooled thermal management solution for the eLION portfolio. The eLION portfolio includes a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, electric inverter, onboard charger, DC-DC converter, power distribution unit, high voltage cables with plugs and a controller. The thermal management system from Modine works seamlessly with the eLion portfolio to maintain optimal battery temperature, efficiently cool power electronics, and ensure passenger comfort.
