Maxwell Technologies has announced that the North American office of United Kingdom’s Vehicle Certification Agency has granted European Economic Community-Type Approval and Conformity of Production clearance to Maxwell’s 125-volt Heavy Transportation Module, the HTM125.
The EEC-Type Approval certifies that Maxwell’s HTM125 complies with the EEC vehicle electromagnetic compatibility requirements of Council Directive 72/245/EEC as last amended by Commission Directive 2009/19/EC and ECE Regulation 10.03. The HTM125 was tested to ensure immunity to radiated and conducted disturbances for functions related to direct control of vehicles, and compliance with requirements regarding control of unwanted radiated and conducted emissions to the intended use of electrical or electronic equipment in the installed or adjacent vehicles.
The associated Conformity of Production clearance certifies that Maxwell’s internal production and documentation control systems, procedures and practices comply with EEC requirements to ensure consistent manufacturability of the HTM125.
“Several European heavy vehicle and equipment manufacturers and hybrid and electric drive system integrators are designing the HTM125 into braking energy recuperation and torque-assist systems for greener, more energy-efficient products,” said David Schramm, Maxwell’s president and chief executive officer. “The EEC-Type Approval and CoP clearance demonstrate that Maxwell’s procurement, production and documentation control processes meet the rigorous industry standards that our customers demand.”
Maxwell’s 125v Heavy Transportation series of ultracapacitor modules is a high performance energy storage and power delivery product line for hybrid buses and trucks, trolleys and other light rail vehicles, mining and construction equipment and seaport cranes. All HTM products incorporate balancing, monitoring and thermal management capabilities to ensure industry-leading charge/discharge performance, high reliability and long operational life.
Used as the sole energy storage or in conjunction with batteries, Maxwell ultracapacitor modules provide the high efficiency recharge and high power output required for acceleration.
