APUs can provide 10 times more current
Sep 1, 2006 12:00 PM
eCycle announces auxiliary power units (APUs) based on the Kubota Z602 and D902 Super Mini diesel engines. These APUs offer up to 10 times the current (power) of competing products.
eCycle's APUs are ideal for vehicles requiring additional DC power as part of a total generation system. Depending on the application, they can be configured to produce up to 10 kw at regulated low voltage (14 or 28 volts DC) with current up to 360 amps continuous.
The electronically commutated motor/generator (CMG) uses SolidSlot technology that replaces traditional windings with trapezoidal conductor bars. These improvements result in a power-dense generator that delivers high current at low voltage to maintain battery charge, while providing sufficient current to support all other electrical needs.
eCycle's APU consists of the company's SolidSlot CMG brushless motor/generator, a high-current buck/boost regulator, and a liquid-cooled Kubota engine. The APU was designed to be mounted peripherally and requires 8 cubic feet of space. It features automatic starting capability and can be connected to the vehicle's main fuel supply.
