Technology News Tracker: Eaton Technologies for SuperTruck II

Eaton is contributing several technologies for the DOE’s SuperTruck II project.

SuperTruck II aims to improve freight efficiency more than 100%, and improve brake thermal efficiency performance by 55%.

Eaton is supplying a 48V mild hybrid electrically regenerative drive for battery charging, running accessories and replacing the alternator.

Its positive-displacement TVS EGR pump is driven by a 48V electric motor, making its operation completely independent from engine speed to increase fuel economy.

The company says it’s excited to work with several OEMs involved in SuperTruck II to strive for a common goal of cleaner, more fuel-efficient commercial vehicles.
