Danfoss to showcase commercial vehicle electrification technology at ACT Expo 2024

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

NORDBORG, Denmark – Danfoss will highlight its latest solutions for the electrification of on-highway commercial vehicles at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, May 20-23, in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S. At booth 2971, visitors will discover how Danfoss can advance the decarbonization of transportation and help original equipment manufacturers and vehicle fleet owners meet their sustainability objectives.

Danfoss can support commercial vehicle OEMs no matter where they are on the electrification journey. We’re a one-stop shop for all electrification needs, from the smallest power module to complete powertrain systems. It’s a transformative time for the industry and for Danfoss. We’re quickly becoming a Tier 1 supplier to commercial vehicle OEMs, and a particularly strong partner for OEMs ready to vertically integrate.

Eric Azeroual, vice president, Power Charging Solutions, Editron division, Danfoss Power Solutions

A range of products from the company’s Power Solutions, Climate Solutions, and Power Electronics and Drives businesses will be showcased at the Danfoss booth, including Editron electric motors and converters, BOCK compressors, Danfoss Semikron power electronics, and more.

Among the notable products on display is the new Editron ED3 onboard charger with electric power take-off (ePTO). ED3 delivers 43 kilowatts of charging power, the highest AC charging power currently available. This enables overnight charging of electric vehicles using readily available AC chargers, facilitating quick deployment while minimizing charging infrastructure costs for end users. The high-power AC and DC ePTO functionality enables the ED3 to power vehicle auxiliary functions, such as the compressors on refrigerated trucks and compactors on refuse trucks.

Danfoss Climate Solutions will present the BOCK® StarCO2mpressor as a new addition to the Danfoss product range. A compressor from a wide range of mobile CO2 and low-GWP compressors and related components, the product provides efficient thermal management for trucks and buses.

In addition to hardware, Danfoss will also highlight its software capabilities. Designed by its global software development team, Danfoss software ties together its components while addressing the functional safety and cybersecurity requirements of the market.

“We don’t just have the right components; we’re also local,” Azeroual added. “Danfoss produces components at volume in North America today, so we can help OEMs and end users qualify for voucher and subsidy programs linked to North American production.”
