Danfoss Editron electrification products debut

Danfoss Power Solutions’ Editron division has launched two new electrification products at this year’s Agritechnica trade fair in Hanover, Germany. The products are intended to increase value for OEMs in the on- and off-highway industries and quicken the pace of heavy-duty electrification, the company stated.

Danfoss Editron ED3 onboard charger

Previously only available to Volvo Trucks, the ED3 bi-directional onboard charger with electric power take-off (PTO) functionality will now be made available to the open market. A product standardization project is underway as the exclusivity period has ended; Danfoss expects prototypes to be available in 2024, with serial production to follow.

Initially designed for on-highway applications, the ED3 offers 43 kW of charging power that enables heavy-duty electric vehicles to be charged overnight using readily available AC power outlets. Its high-power AC and DC electric PTO will also simplify integration​ for OEMs, Danfoss said. The product pulls DC power directly from its main high-voltage battery to support up to 44 kW of power, plus can convert power drawn from the battery to AC in a single- or three-phase electrical supply to deliver up to 43.6 kilovolt-amperes. According to the company, this means the ED3 can support any electric PTO function for most auxiliary functions.

“Our game-changer ED3 onboard charger will provide our customers with industry-leading AC charging power,” said Kimmo Rauma, vice president, Editron division, Danfoss Power Solutions. “Rapid AC charging is necessary to eliminate range anxiety for commercial vehicles undertaking deliveries on variable routes and for machines at construction sites without access to DC charging.”

Danfoss Editron LCL1200/1700 electric filter

Also launched at Agritechnica is the LCL1200/1700 electric filter. Specifically designed for off-highway applications, it is an accompanying component for the EC-C1200 electric converter for 500 volts AC and EC-C1700 for 690 volts AC, released earlier this year.

The filter acts as an active front end to convert energy from AC to DC grid or as a grid filter in generator applications, the company explained. The LCL filter offers easy installation and design flexibility to OEMs. The combined LCL1200/1700 filter and EC-C1700 converter are suited for smaller, “more sophisticated” electric converters and enable easy access to full power grid connection, said Danfoss.

The Editron division’s portfolio of filters and converters now includes 500V AC and 690V AC variant with electric and communication interfaces, reliable commissioning and a service tool for application-specific adjustments required during installation or ongoing troubleshooting.

Prototypes of the LCL1200/1700 filter are already available, with Danfoss expecting the product’s full release to happen in the first quarter of 2024.
