Now, manufacturers considering multiple cross-platform applications can rely on one supplier and no longer have to spend time sourcing different battery systems for different vehicles.
Webasto can assist OEMs and fleets in vehicle specification and in the scaling of battery power and storage needs. Using computer simulations, factors such as duty cycles, climate, and geographies can all be used to predict the appropriate number of battery packs and the type of thermal management needed to optimize battery performance.
Webasto offers both off-the-shelf solutions for their CV Standard Battery and custom designs for OEM projects. Webasto’s thermal management system uses both active and passive, cooling, as well as electric fluid heating and heat pump systems.
Operating temperatures can impact the operational lifespan of advanced batteries. Webasto’s thermal management technology keeps the system’s batteries functioning in their operating temperature range, which maximizes the life of the system. Within the battery pack, the modules also include desiccant cartridges that reduce condensation, integrated thermal runaway detection sensors, and pressure equalization monitors for added safety.
