E-MOBILITY IN PRACTICE
REO COMPONENTS USED IN ELECTRIC BUSES
Another practical example of REO components in a modern e-mobility solution is the use of dV/dt filter chokes upstream of air conditioning compressor units on electric buses. The REO CNW M 833/16 filter choke reliably reduces voltage rise-times to acceptable levels and, in doing so, protects other electrical components on-board, such as the sensitive compressors used on electric buses. It also helps to reduce EMC interference at the same time. This results in a longer life cycle and reduced heating of the compressor motor.
The filter choke has been specifically designed to work in harsh environmental conditions as well as continuous operation, offering IP54 protection rating thanks to REO’s casting technology.
The practical examples described above demonstrate how REO components have already proven themselves in all kinds of applications. Their reliable and long-lasting operation is also evidence of their quality. For these projects REO extends the statutory warranty from one year to two years, this provides worry-free effective protection from system failure or unforeseen expenditure – and at no extra cost to you, our customers. Our safety net is one you can rely on.
