As an important part of the development of e-mobility suitable for everyday use and as part of its ambitious environmental strategy, Volvo has built a series of electric Volvo C30s that have been fully equipped with drive components from BRUSA Elektronik AG.
In addition, the Volvo C30 Electric Generation II is equipped with BRUSA's innovative 22 kW onboard charger NLG664. This shortens the charging time for a charge of 30 to 90 percent under an hour. The charger of an electric car plays a crucial role, for example when it comes to battery life or electrical safety. Both the BRUSA NLG513 (3.7 kW), which is installed in the first series of the C30 Electric, and the BRUSA NLG664 (22 kW) follow the principle of galvanic separation in order to ensure maximum electrical safety for users and the charging infrastructure and belong making it one of the safest chargers on the market.
Of the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive can optionally be purchased with BRUSA's fast charger NLG664. It is the world's first charger that can be operated on three-phase three-phase connections. At the same time, it can be installed directly in the electric car without any problems. With a charging power of 22 kW, the charging speed of a typical electric car such as the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive up to 80 percent in just 45 minutes.
The eRod is a puristic street-legal sports car from the company Kyburz . In the prototype eRod Race With an output of 150 kW, the Swiss company installed a complete set of components from BRUSA Elektronik. This includes the DTSO1-096 drive set with the HSM1-10.18.13 motor, the DMC534 converter, the NLG664 charger and the BSC624 DC / DC converter. Uncompromising in terms of technology and driving behavior, the eRod offers passionate drivers maximum driving pleasure. Flurin Vicentini, Head of Development at Kyburz, sums it up: "For the flagship of the eRod series, the eRod Race, only the best is good enough, which is why we do not compromise when it comes to performance and use the BRUSA drive." The powerful electric drive provides the thrust that is fun. The eRod is offered both as a small series and as a kit.
Under the motto “The better truck”, the new electric truck “ E-FORCE “Another milestone in electromobility came into being. The many years of system competence of BRUSA Elektronik AG guarantees the optimal coordination and reliability of the components used in the E-FORCE truck, each of two electric motors HSM1-10.18.13, converter DMC534 and charger NLG664, as well as a DC converter BSC624-12V.
E-FORCE ONE AG with the support of Designwerk GmbH and Lithium Storage is building the electric 18-tonner for the regional and urban goods distribution service and has already won customers such as Feldschlösschen and Coop, whose fleets are already using the first E-FORCE.
As part of the focus project SUNCAR (ETH Zurich, NTB Buchs, Industry) the first electric excavator was developed. An electric excavator needs an enormously large battery in order to be sufficiently powerful. In autumn 2014 he dredged a biotope in a forest without the usual noise. The excavator used renewable energy for this. Thanks to the greater efficiency of the electric drive, it needs three times less energy than conventional excavators. The goal is a factor of five and that with a 15-ton excavator that works for eight hours in electric mode. BRUSA supplied two NLG664 chargers for this project.
In 2015, the solar excavator was awarded the European solar award excellent. Compared to a diesel excavator, it emits 40 t of CO annually 2 less and saves CHF 21,000 per year in fuel.
The Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL-Hybrid is a bus with fuel cell hybrid drive manufactured by the German commercial vehicle manufacturer Mercedes-Benz based on the successful Citaro bus model. It differs from the previous series in that it has a serial hybrid drive. It is driven by two electric wheel hub motors on the rear axle, each with a maximum output of 80 kW. The core element is the fuel cell consisting of two modules of 396 individual cells each with a total output of 120 kW. The DC / DC converter BDC546 from BRUSA is used in all Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL Hybrids.
In the course of various research and funding projects, the Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid is used to test the everyday suitability of the fuel cell drive in local public transport.
