By Catrin Jones16 March 2023
At ConExpo, Perkins is demonstrating smarter ways customers can cut development time and costs, spotlighting its next-generation integrated powertrain programme.
Perkins is exhibiting an integrated, end-to-end diesel-electric hybrid powertrain at the show. The solution is said to be highly configurable for a wide range of off-highway applications, with the featured configuration being suited to backhoe loader or telehandler applications and consisting of a scalable 48-volt battery module, powershift transmission, 20 kW motor-generator unit, inverter, and an advanced energy control module.
Perkins is also spotlighting its deep and growing component and systems integration expertise in electric-driven powertrains, building on its announcement of its battery development programme at bauma in October 2022.
In Las Vegas, Perkins is highlighting its portfolio of advanced power product and service solutions designed to help customers manage the energy transition to a more sustainable, lower-carbon future.
These include 48-, 300- and 600-volt lithium-ion battery solutions with modular designs and factory-installed telematics that Perkins is developing to optimise performance and packaging in numerous next-generation off-highway applications for the construction, industrial, materials handling and agricultural industries.
