Product: Axle gearbox electric

The starting point is the high e-machine speed and the gap to the required speed on the drive wheels themselves, so the challenge is again significantly extended by the axle differential. The motor shaft even rotates over 12,000 rpm, thus setting another task that needs to be solved.

The eAD series of VDS gives all the answers here. The axle transmissions already available today cover transmission ranges from 12.5 to 24.8 and input torques from 100 Nm to 340 Nm. Further developments are ongoing.

Operating weights from 49 kg to currently 58 kg confirm the lightweight claim. We have also integrated a differential module into this series. This means that the most important functions between the electric machine and the drive wheels are available in a single compact and highly efficient unit.

The VDS team was able to ensure the advantages and features of the eGB series (lowest noise generation, integrated safety brake, wear-free and simplest maintenance, highest service life expectations …).
