New EV Controller Line Launched

02 April 2019

YASA, Oxford, England, a manufacturer of axial-flux electric motors, announced availability of the first in a new series of motor controllers (inverters) for propulsion and generation applications in electric and hybrid vehicles.

The new Si400 controller delivers 200kVA (400V and 500 Arms) from a 5 liter package weighing 5.75kg. The controller features thermal management including dielectric oil cooling and is suitable for use with induction, permanent magnet and axial-flux electric motors.

Si400 samples are available to OEM and tier-one customers. This news follows the company’s announcement in February of a long-term innovation agreement with a global automotive OEM.

Speaking of the launch, YASA CEO Chris Harris said; “With this new series of controllers, we’re responding to our customers’ demand for increased flexibility in powertrain design. The first release in the series, the Si400, is significantly smaller and lighter … and when coupled with our axial-flux motors enables significant improvements in vehicle performance, range and cost. This will mean greater choice for consumers, increasing the already rapid adoption of electric vehicles and setting the bar for driving experiences.”
