BorgWarner has reached an agreement with a major global OEM to supply its 400V high voltage coolant heaters (HVCH) for the automaker’s European light vehicle program.
BorgWarner says this is the second HVCH contract secured with the global automaker over the course of two months.
Joseph F. Fadool, President and General Manager of BorgWarner Emissions, Thermal and Turbo Systems said: “We are delighted to provide this global OEM with our HVCH technology for its upcoming BEV platforms and continue to build upon our longstanding, excellent relationship.”
The 400V HVCH features a modular design with high thermal power density crafted specifically for the heating of a pure BEV’s battery and cabin.
It also offers a lightweight, compact solution to fit the reduced size and weight requirements requested by the OEM.
The technology offers enhanced heat transfer to enable fast charging and includes a low switching frequency to optimize cost. BW says it satisfies packaging and safety requirements to align with customer needs, including preventing thermal events with a redundant switch that controls temperature and can shut off automatically should it detect an error.
