Dual inverter developed by John Deere supports BPW's fully electric BAX truck
The PD400 Dual inverter designed and developed by John Deere Electronics (JDE) can be found at the heart of the all-electric drivetrain system in the BAX truck which is also equipped with an electric BPW axle.
Controlling two electric wheel motors, the PD400 provides space savings and flexibility to system designers, while also enabling ASIL-B system-level functional safety requirements.
"Our BAX truck’s fully electric drivetrain system is supported by the dual power of the PD400 inverter. BPW has appreciated John Deere technology and engineering support," stated Alexander Wolter, Head of Sales and Product Management Electromobility at BPW Bergische Achsen in Wiehl.
Originally designed for city use, the 7.5-ton truck with electric drive is available in a long-range version, with a battery capacity of 126 kWh and can go a sensational 200 kilometers (depending on the load being hauled, weather conditions, intended use and driving style). The BAX can be charged from 20% to 80% in 45 minutes to allow you to be ready for your next job. A compatible chassis design on BAX trucks allows BAX to be flexible and customize the body for specific applications.
