20 Apr Joining Forces with Cascadia Motion on Electric Vehicle Systems
Together, Embed and Cascadia, help SMEs and Niche Vehicle manufacturers in the UK & Europe launch their Electric Vehicle prototypes and scale to low and medium volume production.
Cascadia Motion are a world-class design, development and manufacturer of electric vehicle systems. Supplying inverters, motors, DCDC converters, on-board chargers and HV battery systems. Embed are a leading automotive embedded design and development consultancy focus on high-tech and EV systems based in the UK. Together, Embed and Cascadia, will help SMEs and Niche Vehicle manufacturers in the UK & Europe launch their Electric Vehicle prototypes and scale to low and medium volume production. When a project becomes more successful and hits higher volumes we provide a simple path to expand supply and support through Cascadia Motion’s parent company BorgWarner.
Embed can quickly create an electric version of your vehicle using the Cascadia Motion products and our integration services. Proving you a fast and production ready solution that you can take to market very quickly as all the components are off-the-shelf.
The SS-250-115 is a powerful, durable and rugged electric motor/generator with integral sump, mechanical oil pump and heat exchanger for use in on- and off-road highway vehicles, power generation and other special high power applications.
The HVH250 Series motors come in various stack length, cooling and winding configurations. They are available as fully housed motors or as rotor/stator assemblies. The HVH250 is a powerful, durable and rugged electric motor/generator for use in on- and off-highway vehicles, power generation and other special high power demand applications.
DCDC Converters & On Board Chargers
The Combo Unit combines the functionality of an on-board charger (OBC) with that of a DC/DC converter. This allows the vehicle battery to be charged from an AC building/grid power source at a 6.6kW rate and the DC/DC portion provides a 14V output converted at up to a 1.2kW nominal (1.4kW max) rate from the high voltage battery. This keeps the vehicle’s low-voltage battery charged. The Combo Unit is water cooled by the vehicle’s coolant loop.
A DC/DC Converter is available separately for those customers who do not need an OBC (charger) solution. This unit is air cooled and has a 14V output at a 1.8kW nominal rate (2.0kW max).
Both the Combo Unit and the DC/DC Converter are available in standard voltage (~400Vdc) and high voltage (~800Vdc) versions.
Batteries & Battery Management Systems
Cascadia Motion’s small-format battery modules are favored by compact or complex in-vehicle packaging situations. It’s been designed with modularity in mind, allowing our customers to configure and build their own packs in a flexible way. While supporting an awesome punch of 25kW per module (15C rate), the product also gives respectable energy density for EV range. The integrated BMS is fully user-configurable and comes standard with datalogging functions.
