The Japanese electric motor manufacturer Nidec has announced the successful development of a new electric axle motor system, which consists of an electric motor, transmission and converter. This new system was developed to deal with the rising demand from the e-mobility sector.
The electric motor system weighs 83 kg with a maximum performance of 150 kW and a maximum torque of 3,900 Nm. Furthermore, the new design allows for the elimination of cables between the components, which allows for a more compact system, allowing additional flexibility.
