Compact electric drive axles TAPIO for vehicles

A full range of electric drives for vehicles developed in cooperation with Brno University of Technology in response to the global trend of ecological transportation while offering a unified electric drive for the smallest to vehicles requiring the present maximum performance power of 6 kW at a nominal supply voltage of up to 48 V.

Convenient and easy installation in vehicles

Compact drive axles are designed as a monoblock with power electronics, allowing effortless and convenient installation in vehicles. Putting drive axles into operation only requires the connection of controls and supply voltage.

User functions

The electric drive has the optional feature of energy recuperation during braking. With the aid of the CAN bus it´s possible to monitor and set the parameters of its functions.

Unique patented drive for slow-moving vehicles

In slow-moving vehicles, the crucial design considerations include the requirement for high torque of the drive, especially during the starting of a vehicle from a standstill, and also the ability of efficient electric motor cooling at low speeds. The drive unit based on a switched reluctance motor meets these requirements perfectly.

Robust and simple construction, motor without permanent magnets

The switched reluctance motor is generally characterized by its robustness which is caused (among other things) by the absence of permanent magnets. This unique construction of the compact drive axles further highlights this advantage.

Economics and ecology

Production, assembly and disassembly of the compact drive axles are quick and easy, which reduces production and maintenance costs and allows an efficient series of small modifications. The electric drive is especially constructed for low costs and environmental friendliness. This application is suitable for electro-mobility, logistics, agriculture and other means of transportation.
