Odyne hybrid system capable of providing up to 36 kW of exportable power

Odyne's plug-in hybrid system provides up to 36 kW of exportable power which operators can use to power truck attachments and tools.

The Odyne plug-in hybrid drive system is the first and only hybrid providing up to 6 kW of pure sine exportable power, capable of expansion up to 36 kW, delivering power for truck attachments and power tools in demanding applications. The Odyne system provides this unprecedented level of power and consistent power conversion throughout the entire range of the battery charge. The Odyne system offers full communication capabilities providing accurate control and power use reporting, as well as full diagnostic analysis.

The robust design of the inverter features external mounting capabilities and advanced diagnostics and communications capabilities for improved control, easier servicing and customized programming to optimize performance. 

An Odyne hybrid system reduces fleet operating and maintenance costs, and depending on duty cycle, enables large trucks to obtain fuel economy improvements of up to 50% compared to traditional diesel or gasoline engines. The system features proprietary and patented hybrid technology combining reliable electric power conversion, power control and energy storage technology. The Odyne hybrid power system interfaces with Allison Transmission’s industry-leading fully-automatic transmissions, Remy advanced electric propulsion motors with industry-leading power density and efficiency, Johnson Controls lithium-ion battery technology and other robust, automotive quality components. The unique PTO (Power Take-off) interface provides a direct connection between the hybrid system and the transmission, enabling improved driving fuel efficiency. When the truck is stationary, Odyne’s hybrid system powers most equipment for the entire work day with the engine off. Sold through a worldwide distribution network, the Odyne hybrid system provides benefits for new and existing work trucks. 

Odyne Systems has been selected to participate in a $45.4 million U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) award to develop and deploy plug-in hybrid systems for over 120 trucks throughout North America in 2014.
