Hawe Hydraulik offers different concepts for mobile machine electrification projects. The latest is the PowerBox, which offers enormous advantages for installation and operation. In addition to the battery packs, it also contains a new motor pump unit (MPU), the power distribution unit (PDU), a charger, and the hydraulics.
The concept can be adapted to the specific requirements of the vehicle manufacturer, right down to the disassembled assembly, which can be integrated directly into the vehicle. Connected and fully charged, the PowerBox is ready for autonomous use, and commissioning is accomplished in a very short time.
In addition, the included proven plug-in system for the battery packs significantly simplifies runtime management of the electrically powered vehicle or working hydraulics. When the battery pack charge is exhausted, it can simply be pulled out and replaced with charged spare batteries. This can be done in minutes, thus avoiding downtime. The battery packs can also be charged flexibly at convenient times in the company’s own plant or on-site. The solution shown is already being used successfully in loading cranes and can be used in the same way in aerial work platforms or even construction machinery. The fully equipped PowerBox will be on display at bauma at the Hawe Hydraulik booth in Hall A3.348.
