AEM’s new management board will increase Tesla Drive Unit’s energy in EV conversions

AEM EV plans to launch a complete management system for EV conversions utilizing a Tesla Giant Drive Unit (LDU) Base Drive that will increase horsepower over the manufacturing unit output. AEM’s Inverter Management Board was co-developed with Cascadia Movement, a maker of EV propulsion methods, and is meant to be mixed with AEM EV’s VCU200 automobile management unit.

AEM claims to have elevated the Tesla LDU Base Drive’s horsepower by 26% and believes additional will increase in output energy are potential earlier than the system is launched in early 2021. Validation for the Tesla LDU Efficiency Drive motor is scheduled for later this 12 months.

AEM EV’s LDU Inverter Management Board replaces the OEM Tesla board within the LDU inverter and connects to the VCU200 over CAN bus. An adapter harness is included to supply a close to plug-and-play connection aside from sourcing 12 V energy and floor connections. The AEM EV VCU200/LDU Inverter Management Board system is designed for EV conversions—it is not going to function an LDU-equipped OEM Tesla automobile.

The board’s options embody:

  • Motor torque administration (programmable torque curves) depending on automobile working states and different driver-selectable modes
  • Dynamic torque limits for traction/launch management methods maximize security and optimize efficiency
  • Enter characterization, together with accelerator pedal, brake change, PRND switches, and different driver/automobile inputs
  • Accent management of cooling pumps, cooling followers, lights and extra
  • Redundancy and arbitration options for all safety-critical inputs
  • Startup and shutdown sequencing of high-voltage elements, together with impartial contactor management
  • CAN message translation for BMS, inverter, PDUs and different CAN equipment
  • Diagnostics and fault detection together with CAN message timeouts, thermal limits, contactor, and inverter allow cross-checks
