E-MOBILITY IN PRACTICE
REO COMPONENTS USED IN ELECTRIC EXCAVATORS
The electrification of mobility continues to advance in all sectors of the economy, with REO components already demonstrating their durability and reliability on a daily basis. These capabilities are of particular importance for heavy vehicles, as the high dynamic forces, adverse environments and intensive continuous operation involved demand excellent quality and reliability.
REO has a wide product portfolio with scalable performance available to cater for these specific requirements. For example, the NTT 9339/375/0.06 sinus filters, ensure a clean on-board vehicle power supply to electrically operated excavators. Whether there is salty air, fine dust or thick mud, these sinus filters ensure disruption-free and low maintenance operation. The e-motor works more than twice as efficiently as a comparable diesel engine. Unlike the latter, it is also only active when it is actually needed. As a result, no energy is wasted during idling periods. This conserves resources and enables a level of operation that is significantly quieter, more enjoyable and, ultimately, saves money. Starting from their production all the way through to their recycling, e-excavators benefit from a 90% better carbon footprint over the course of their life cycle.
“We recognized at an early stage the change in social awareness and resulting potential in the field of e-mobility. As a result, our investment in research and development work in this area is now paying dividends. We offer a unique product portfolio globally with our intelligent and smart test systems that can be used in almost any area of e-mobility.” Jasminka Usein
With the ongoing move towards electrification, REO has combined its strengths in the production of inductive, resistive and electronic components to provide a cohesive and unique offering in the market, while many providers are forced to purchase technologies, REO can rely on more than 95 years of experience, thus affirming its innovative in-house capability, and particularly so in cases where sophisticated, turn-key test systems are required.
