SEG Automotive will present its latest product generation products at the IAA CV show 2018.0 During its first independent IAA appearance for former BOSCH business unit, the company will host the world premiere of its Heavy Duty Second Generation (HDS) generator platform that is specifically tailored to the requirements of autonomous driving.
A successor of SEG’s HD generator family, HDS comprises seven power classes in two voltage levels and can be tailored precisely to the specific application with features such as long-life, off-road or corrosion protection. The output of HDS is scalable up to 4.5 kW and offers a lifetime of 8,00,00 up to two million kms. HDS is designed to deliver efficiency of up to 80 % in average with thermal resistance of up to 130 °C for modern, encapsulated engine compartments. The HDS generators will go into series production for leading OEMs as early as 2019.
SEG Automotive's other IAA highlights include Classic Line Generator and HXF88-M Starter. The classic line generator is aimed at commercial vehicles that operate with relatively fewer electrical consumers, such as trucks in emerging countries like India or more basic farming machines worldwide. It offers an optimal alternative to the heavy-duty line for applications in which the focus is on an optimised product without compromising robustness and quality. HXF88-M Starter is designed for the medium power segment and relies on a refined engagement system that reduces the load on toothing of both the starter motor pinion and the mating ring gear of the engine and thus increases durability. In conjunction with the standard connection to the engine control unit, the HXF88-M ensures a reliable starting of the diesel engine. Additional products with equivalent technology for the heavy-duty sector will be introduced in the near future.
Anil Kumar M R, Managing Director, SEG Automotive India stated that knowledge from research and development across product groups in Germany and local application development using our deep understanding of the Indian market requirements are decisive components for technology leadership and outstanding field quality. “With corrosion protection, effective dust protection measures and individually configurable performance features, SEG Automotive offers the right solution for every CV application in Indian market - on and off the road,” he added.
