Balqon Corporation has released a complete line of next-generation electric vehicle motor controllers, named ZEVQON™, designed for emerging zero-emission commercial truck and bus markets. ZEVQON EV controllers is a complete line of ac inverters ranging in power from 20 to 240 kW, designed for use in electric vehicles ranging in size from a small utility vehicle to 30-ton on-road truck. The new line of electric motor controllers are smaller in size, featuring liquid cooling, regenerative braking and compliance to automotive J1939 Can Bus communication protocol.
ZEVQON product line uses IGBT transistor technology, providing high-efficiency conversion of battery voltages from 150 to 700 Vdc to ac voltage. These controllers are designed for fixed or variable frequency applications ranging from 0 Hz to 400 Hz.
“While Balqon is recognized as a leader in the heavy duty electric truck market, since 2008 we have been selling our proprietary flux vector technology motor controllers to a diverse group of OEMs of buses, boats, monorails, motorcycles and mining equipment,” said Balwinder Samra, CEO of Balqon Corporation. “ZEVQON line of motor controllers incorporates the latest in high power IGBT technology combined with improved diagnostic and configuration capabilities, which allows our customers to customize performance across a wide spectrum of applications ranging from push back airline tractors to 40 passenger transit buses,” he added.
