YASA P400 Series Launch
YASA Releases New Motor and Generator Products for Serial Production.
Smaller and lighter than any other motors in their performance range, the YASA P400 Series enables designers to implement higher power hybridisation and electrification without compromising critical vehicle space and weight. With the P400 Series, powerful and efficient full hybrid and electric powertrains can be implemented in the constrained spaces and weight limited environments that previously allowed for only less efficient mild hybrid designs.
The high performance polymer material is strong, highly durable and light weight, and is already in common use in volume automotive applications. Importantly, the materials used in the P400 Series reduce both material cost and assembly time.
One model of the liquid cooled P400 Series also adds rotor air cooling into its advanced design, allowing unusually high continuous (constant) power and torque operation, while avoiding the complexities of additional cooling circuits. With up to 100 kW of constant, continuous power available with this option, this is ideal for power generation and high continuous torque usage such as winches, conveyors and generator applications.
In common with other YASA products, the P400 is able to operate as a mobile and variable speed generator as well as a traction motor for on or off road, rail and marine transport in hybrid or full electric mode. It also represents a compact and efficient alternative to hydraulic motors and starters.
“The P400 Series represents the latest products to result from the in-depth capability of our engineering team”, said Ajay Lukha, CCO of YASA Motors. “Our designs will increasingly reflect the requirements of volume manufacture as well as delivering market leading performance for our customers.”
The very high torque and power dense P400 Series motors are now available alongside the existing YASA range of motors.
