The future is electric. It's in our DNA

The future is electric. It’s in our DNA

With over 50 years’ history and experience, we are leading the electrification revolution. Around the world, our international teams are delivering the technology to enable a carbon-free future.

EDITRON is the world’s most sophisticated electric drivetrain system designed, manufactured and delivered by Danfoss Editron.


Our unique approach delivers maximum efficiencies, reduced size and weight, plus continual improvements for our customers. The sophisticated software behind our system controls and optimizes each individual component of an electric or hybrid drivetrain, leading to more intelligent management of power distribution.

The EDITRON system is comprised of components designed in-house with high IP-classes. In the marine market, it uses synchronous reluctance assisted permanent magnet technology on machines up to 6MW, while in off-highway and on-highway industries the power ranges from 30kW to 1000kW.
