CO150 as auxiliary inverter
(Boucherville, QC) Dana TM4 has introduced its CO150-HVF for auxiliary power supply in commercial vehicle applications. Based on the same platform as the proven CO150 traction inverters, the CO150-HVF offers a CAN-based interface that allows to dynamically control the frequency and output voltage for electric vehicle accessory applications (i.e. pumps, fans or compressors) for use with a 3-phase AC induction motor. This feature opens the door to the use of variable speed accessories and reduces the average consumption of auxiliaries. In addition, several information available on the CAN allow to know the status of the inverter and its load, therefore enabling advanced control functions. This compact system is the ideal power source for your vehicles’ AC powered devices.
