Submitted by J. Mikhail on Wed, 06/29/2022 - 21:04

Lidar specialist Ouster is displaying its OS series of sensors, which it says are unique in their ability to offer over 75 SKUs with just three sensors – the OS0, OS1 and OS2 – all built on a single digital architecture. 
Digital lidar greatly improves upon analog lidar in size, weight, form factor, power efficiency and weather resistance. Ouster’s OS sensors offer up to 128 channels of resolution for short-, mid- and long-range along with ultra-wide vertical field-of-view and shorter minimum range configurations to support a wide variety of industrial applications.

Finnish technology company Proventia has its latest battery technology for industrial vehicle applications on display. The ePRO500+ is based on the same modular construction as the company’s smaller battery product, the ePRO48. ePRO500+ offers flexible tailoring of capacity and voltage to meet the strictest demands of hybrid and fully electric off-road machinery. The Proventia battery platform is based on lithium titanate oxide (LTO) technology, which has proved to be the optimal solution for power-intensive applications.

Controls specialist EAO has enhanced its robust, modular and reliable Series 09 CAN modules with innovative product variants that offer IP67 front protection and white symbol illumination, all of which are on display at iVT Expo. 

The Series 09 Keypads and Rotary Cursor Controllers are available in a range of variants. They all have the flexibility of interchangeable legends but come with a choice of halo illumination features, communication protocols and connector types. 

Discover the ultimate thermal management solutions for your ICE and electric vehicles

Proper thermal management of an electric vehicle is much more complex than that of a conventional vehicle with a combustion engine. In electrified off-highway vehicles, the electric motor and power electronics must always be cooled, while the battery – depending on the outside temperature and load – must either be cooled or heated. For heating the cabin, which formerly used the waste heat of the combustion engine, electrical energy must be consumed from the battery. 

On display: versatile hydraulic solutions for electricity, water and air supply

Though the market is moving toward electrification, hydraulics remains a vital part of many industrial vehicles. They are hard to beat in terms of power density, as highlighted by Dynaset’s range of hydraulic-powered equipment on show at iVT Expo. “High-pressure compressors are one of our bestsellers, and our high-power water pumps, which can operate at 150 bar, have exceptional power density and are also very popular,” noted Henri Hypen, area sales manager for the company.

Cutting-edge technology: an axial flux traction motor with fully integrated power electronics

Bluways, a developer of SiC-based inverters, high-power NMC batteries and electric motors used iVT Expo to debut its latest development, a 15kW permanent magnet, axial flux motor with fully integrated power electronics. 

“Each inductor on the motor has its own inverter,” explained Wim Vander Kuylen, project manager at Bluways. “What that means is that you have complete redundancy: even if one fails, the motor will still run.”
