John Deere Power Systems Releases New Electric Drives at Bauma

John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) debuted new electric drivetrain components at Bauma 2019.

April 15, 2019 — John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) debuted new electric drivetrain components at Bauma 2019.

These new solutions are designed to meet the demands of the rugged off-highway market and provide durability while giving OEM customers the flexibility they need to easily implement hybrid power in their equipment. 

The new electric drivetrain solutions can be optimized for a wide variety of off-road hybrid and electric vehicle applications.

The new electric drivetrain components from John Deere feature compact, high-speed motors, controlled by power electronics from John Deere Electronic Solutions. These eMachine components are integrated in various John Deere pump drive and transmission solutions resulting in a flexible drivetrain portfolio for ease of OEM implementation. 

For OEM applications ranging from variable speed power generation to fully electric vehicle transmissions, the modular electric drivetrain component designs offer power generation and traction drive solutions up to 200kW per unit. 

As an added benefit, because the product offering includes both power generation and traction drive components managed through a John Deere inverter, a John Deere electric drivetrain solution ensures a balanced energy system. 

For selected vehicle applications, single-speed transmission, and generator pump drive prototype opportunities are scheduled to begin by the end of this year. New three-speed transmission prototypes for select applications will be available in the following year. 

The new 13.6L engine from John Deere will be part of the Stage V line-up for industrial and generator set markets. John Deere is also expanding its non-EGR engine generator drive lineup for Stage V with the addition of the 4.5L EWS engine, which serves both the 80 kVA and the 100 kVA markets.
