Bionic Battery Cooling Plate
The bionic battery cooling plate from MAHLE keeps the lithium-ion battery in the optimal temperature window between 10 to a maximum of 40 °C at all times.
In the latest development, the channel design imitates flow patterns found in nature. This reduces pressure loss by up to 20 percent while increasing heat transfer by 10 percent.
MAHLE currently offers its extremely compact high-voltage compressor in voltages of up to 900 volts, displacements of up to 57 cubic centimeters and outputs of up to 18 kilowatts.
Its compact design, combined with its high performance, means that it can be used in all vehicle classes-from passenger cars to heavy commercial vehicles.
Wireless Charging Positioning System
Siemens is developing the infrastructure, MAHLE the vehicle technology and the user-friendly positioning system.
The latter is placed on the floor of the garage or parking lot as a "transmitter" coil. The magnetic field that is built up transmits the energy to the "receiver" coil in the car.
The battery charges with a charging power of 11 kilowatts and an efficiency of 92 percent - and without cables!
