THE MARKET

ACTARON provides innovative consulting for electric power-train and energy storage solutions for mobile machines operating in an industrial environment

THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THE POWERTRAIN

Why go electric?

Stricter environmental requirements. Excess utilisation of control units within in each working machine. In the past few years the vehicle wiring harness has grown tremendously and actuators, sensors and electronic control units have become interconnected.

Conventional systems are giving way to simpler but advanced electric powered components and systems.

  • quieter to operate in noise sensitive areas
  • cleaner – little of no oil – potentially zero emissions vehicles
  • little or no mechanical / hydraulic moving parts
  • enhanced reliability / less servicing
  • electric power systems have significantly better diagnostic potential
  • significantly lower operational costs
  • electric power-trains allow fine control and enhanced functionality
  • electric power systems are ideal for continuous operation

WHAT IS A MOBILE MACHINE

A mobile machine can be defined as any machine, item of transportable industrial equipment, or vehicle - with or without bodywork - that is:

  • not intended for carrying passengers
  • not intended for goods on the road
  • hydraulically actuated articulated frame
  • hydraulically actuated articulated steering
  • compression ignition diesel engine
  • an electric driven motor

 Examples of mobile machinery include:

  • garden equipment
  • generators
  • bulldozers
  • pumps
  • construction machinery
  • industrial trucks
  • fork lifts
  • mobile cranes
  • logistics
  • mining equipment
  • specialist vehicles; airport, military
