CNH Industrial Österreich GmbH, A-St. Valentin / CNH Industrial N.V., London (GB): STEYR has undertaken a study which focuses on zero-emission powertrains, innovative drive solutions and a futuristic operator environment. Combining innovative technologies in a unique, sustainable and potentially zero emission package, STEYR, the premium short-liner agricultural brand of CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE:CNHI / MI:CNHI), in partnership with sister powertrain brand FPT Industrial, has created the STEYR Konzept, which encapsulates a future vision for agricultural machinery.
This concept tractor, designed by CNH Industrial’s Design Center, is centered around a modular hybrid electric drive, comprising a highly efficient diesel engine, a generator and five electric motors, which are individually controlled. This innovative vehicle architecture offers a range of benefits, including enhanced operational flexibility and comfort.
The STEYR Konzept’s electric motors are networked to ensure power is directed exactly where needed, and an e-torque boost, fed from a central battery, supplies additional energy when operating at peak power. This system results in highly efficient, electric continuously variable drive, with fewer moving parts – as the mechanical transmission and hydraulic components have been eliminated – to deliver optimal energy flow with reduced power losses. For even more efficient operation, energy can also be recovered and stored when travelling downhill. When required, the concept vehicle can easily be charged via a standard charging socket. Tractor hydraulics as well as the PTO (power take off, used for powering mounted implements) are electrically driven. Electrified implements can also be powered by either a high voltage (700V) or low voltage (48V) connector.
Four independent electric wheel hub motors are supplied with the precise amount of energy from the battery or generator according to their real-time requirements which delivers outstanding traction and precise steering. … read more – agrartechnik-jobs.de, lmv-jobboerse – Manfred Lorenzen, Soest
