New electric pump drive for low-voltage systems
Omni Powertrain Technologies has released details about its new electrohydraulic pump combination. The unit was developed for low-voltage mobile applications, and is said to be ideally suited to the needs of hybrid equipment builders facing spatial constraints.
The system includes a Flo-Torq gear pump packaged with an axial flux motor and controller from Omni’s Magelec subsidiary. The overall package length of 299.7 mm (11.8 in) offers equipment designers a compact form to power electrohydraulic traction and auxiliary functions.
Featuring a Magelec M17 air-cooled motor with an SAE B mount connection, the complete package weighs 17.6 kg (38.8 lb). The 48 V system is rated for 46 litres per minute of continuous flow with a peak pressure rating of 250 bar.
Other pump and motor combinations are available on request.
