How it works

Hybrid module
Inverter
OCC
PDU
HCU
FCU

 

Hybrid module

This is your drive that gives you propulsion besides your combustion engine (CE), in your in-board boat propulsion system. It runs in line with the CE on one shaft, for a parallel hybrid solution. It will be fitted between CE and gearbox or in other occasions CE and saildrive or z-drive.

This way you can run Hybrid Mode with automatic transition between Electric Mode and Combustion Mode or pure electric and Combustion Mode. In Hybrid and Combustion Mode you have the benefit of regenerating power through the amperetta module into your batteries.

Key Facts

 

Voltage 400 V
Current 180 A
IP-Rating 67
Power (nominal) 20 kW
Torque 170 Nm
Weight 46.1 kg
Dimensions (LxWxH) 342 mm x 319 mm x 214.5 mm
