Thermal management system and component firm Modine Manufacturing has launched a new thermal management system product line designed for commercial EVs.
The line includes the EVantage Battery Thermal Management System (BTMS) and the EVantage Electronics Cooling Package (ECP). The BTMS has a multi-stage cooling and heating system the company says “optimizes the temperature range for an entire bank of batteries with a single unit while minimizing power draw.”
The ECP has a multi-zone cooling design for maintaining the fluid temperatures of the traction motor and power electronics circuits. The company says “EVantage ECPs are designed to specification, with small to large fan arrays that operate only when required to minimize power draw.”
Both the BTMS and ECP include Modine’s proprietary heat exchanger technology, control through CAN bus communication, and a pre-programmed controller for automated operation. Both are available as standard systems or tailored to customer needs.
“By addressing our customers’ ever-evolving heat load and environmental requirements, the EVantage solutions deliver the best possible performance for batteries and power electronics while ensuring safer commercial EVs through intelligent management of thermals during charging and vehicle operation,” said Modine VP and General Manager of Advanced Thermal Systems Gina Bonini.
