Vehicle controls: ECUs for electromobile applications
Vehicle controls, also called ECUs (electronic control units), are electronic modules that take over the control and regulation processes of automated functions in vehicles.
The controls listed here are developed and produced by partner companies that specialize in ECUs. All of the controls from partner companies that we offer are sold with power electronics from ARADEX as a useful addition to ARADEX drive systems for quality and compatibility reasons.
For our customers, this means:
- All components are developed and manufactured by experienced companies within their core competence
- Nevertheless, you receive the entire drive train from one source, which reduces the amount of tuning
- Through our competent partners, we can provide you with the right control for the application in every project
By default ARADEX offers the following controls:
Further controls on request.
Functions of ECUs
ECUs follow the IPO model (input – processing – output), whereby defined physical characteristics, such as, e.g., speed or temperature, are determined by sensors, and the actual values determined in this way are compared with the nominal values that have been calculated or entered in the control unit. Any differences are then adjusted by the control by regulating the corresponding parameters. In order to be able to fulfill such an “intelligent” function for a specific application, the controls are programmable.
In automotive engineering, a decentralized control system is usually integrated, i.e., there are several distributed controls that are installed at the respective vehicle components. These controls can be connected with each other via different system buses, such as, e.g., CAN. In this way, a system-wide communication regarding operating states and other relevant vehicle data takes place.
Our goal is to find the right control for every application. We will be happy to provide you with further controls with more specific requirements.
We look forward to your inquiry.
