FAIST CPS latest developments
In recent years, the automotive industry has undergone a rapid evolution towards electrification, driven by the growing awareness of the importance of reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable mobility.
In this ever-evolving context, FAIST CPS Business Unit has positioned itself at the forefront of the industry, developing a new line of electromechanical actuators, both smart and traditional, designed to support the future development of electric and Fuel Cell vehicles.
Facing the new challenges of the automotive market, we focused on various areas of development, applying our expertise accumulated over the past 20 years.
Actuators for Fuel Cell Compressor Management
Fuel Cell compressors are key components in Fuel Cell systems as they provide the compressed air required for the proper functionality of the electrolysis process.
This process converts hydrogen and oxygen into water, generating electricity, heat, and water vapor.
Their reliability and performance play a crucial role in ensuring the optimal operation of Fuel Cells and increased autonomy of Fuel Cell vehicles.
To meet these needs, CPS Business Unit has conducted in-depth researches and dedicated developments to design cutting-edge electromechanical actuators.
These actuators have been engineered to precisely regulate the air pressure within the compressor, allowing for an optimal airflow during the electrolysis process.
The advanced technology utilized in our actuators enhances the compressor's efficiency, minimizing energy consumption, and maximizing the compressor's lifespan.
This sustainability-focused approach makes our actuators a key solution for the future of Fuel Cells and sustainable mobility.
Regulation Systems for Thermal Management
Thermal management is a critical element in the efficient and reliable operation of electric and Fuel Cell vehicles.
Proper thermal management contributes to maintaining the ideal temperature of Fuel Cells and batteries, maximizing efficiency, and extending the lifespan of electric propulsion systems.
CPS Business Unit has focused its resources on developing high-performance electromechanical actuators for the regulation of thermal management systems.
These actuators are capable of precisely controlling the flow of cooling liquids and, therefore, the power unit cooling, ensuring an optimal temperature throughout all driving conditions.
The precision regulation of these actuators keeps Fuel Cells and batteries in optimal operating conditions, optimizing the range and performance of electric vehicles.
Automatic Opening and Closing of "Charging Gate" Hatches
The increasing popularity of electric vehicles has led to a rise in charging stations. In this context, CPS Business Unit has developed cutting-edge electromechanical actuators for the automatic opening and closing of "charging gate" hatches.
These actuators allow for automatic and secure vehicle connection to charging stations. Automating the charging process enhances the user experience, making charging more convenient and immediate. With these actuators, electric vehicles can autonomously connect to charging stations, making the charging process more efficient and user-friendly.
Additionally, our actuators contribute to the development of autonomous vehicles, enabling them to autonomously reach charging stations and connect without human intervention. This innovative technology is a step forward towards fully autonomous and sustainable mobility.
Reliable Locking of Charging Ports
Safety is of paramount importance in electric vehicle charging. To ensure a secure and stable connection between the vehicle and the charging point, CPS Business Unit has developed a series of electromechanical actuators for the reliable locking of charging plugs.
These actuators prevent accidental disconnections during the charging process, ensuring a continuous flow of energy and minimizing the risk of damage to charging ports. The ability to securely lock charging ports enhances the safety of the entire charging process, protecting both the vehicle and the charging infrastructure. These actuators significantly contribute to ensuring a reliable and safe charging experience for electric vehicle users.
