Bonfiglioli has recently exhibited for the sectors of earth handling machines and building industry an “All In One” EDS (Electric Drive System) solution. It is a mechatronic solution with integrated reducer, electric motor and driver for the electric traction of earth handling machines and commercial vehicles.
EDS-D, in its base configuration, is made up by permanent-magnet motor, inverter and reducer with differential. The optional components that can be added to the system are the DCDC converter and the Telematic Power Unit. To make EDS-D more flexible and to provide customers with the possibility of adapting the e-powertrain to specific applications, it is possible to add a Powertrain Control Unit to the standard configuration. EDS-D can be supplied as complete system (All-in One) or as separate components. «Our historical presence in the Industrial Automation sector has allowed us to rely on “in house” competences, to operate with system logic and to offer an integrated solution. In brief: digitalization and electrification speed up the transition towards a zero-emission scenario, monitored in real time, which grants safety and control to workers. Moreover, batteries are less cumbersome than what imagined and become the only driving force of even large excavators or full electric concrete mixers».
