January 28, 2014
Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division is pleased to announce the first phase of its traction motor launch: the GVM210. The GVM traction motor series is a highly advanced electric machine intended to be used in electric and hybrid electric vehicle traction applications. Pre-production units are being used and tested in major vehicle programs around the world, and with the official launch, the GVM is available as a standard, off-the-shelf production unit. Phase 1 of the release includes a 210 mm frame size. Within this frame size, there are 6 rotor lengths and numerous winding variations.Those variations together allow the GVM210 to have more than 100 combinations of base speed and peak power output for ultimate scalability and fine-tuning of the vehicle’s performance. Some key features of the GVM:
•Peak power from 8 kW to 325 kW •Peak torque from 76 Nm to 703 Nm •Base speed range from 843 rpm to 7,575 rpm •Peak power densities up to 4.2 kw/kg •Operating voltages from 24 VDC to 800 VDC •Tested and validated to SAE J1455 environmental standards •Highly efficient rotor and stator design yielding up to 20 percent more range per charge •Patent-pending cooling configuration uses WEG or ATF (oil) •Manufactured in USA and Europe
“With the launch of this exciting product, Parker will be able to deliver standard traction motors that can be matched to the vehicle’s needs – exactly," said Jay Schultz, industry market manager for Parker Hannifin. "Vehicle designers no longer have to compromise on a motor with performance that is 'close enough."
