The increasing electrification of the vehicle powertrain is one of the biggest technological trend shifts in the automotive industry. In order to effectively cool the lithium-ion battery packs of electric vehicles, new solutions are required for the thermal management challenges. Dealing with rapid fluctuations in system temperatures, new approaches are required to deliver faster reactivity and accurate control of the thermostatic system components. This results in new, complex circuits that place significantly higher demands on the individual components and the control system. Magal Engineering is able to utilise our in-depth knowledge of traditional thermal system management using traditional wax motors, and deliver to our customers solutions incorporating valve modules controlled by electronic stepper motors. Our design and engineering teams are able to work jointly with our customers to develop specific solutions to meet their future challenges in a fast moving growth segment.
With significant growth in hybrid vehicles being offered across Magal Engineering's customer vehicle ranges, we are able to adapt our product offering to satisfy the need for multiple cooling solutions across engine, transmission and battery system thermal management. From delivering traditional wax motor-driven manual and electrically heated thermostats and bypass valves to improve warm up speed and efficiency, through to designing and developing valves which improve control of transmission oil temperatures, finally complemented by electrical stepper motor valves which effectively manage external thermal temperatures of the battery pack, we can partner with you to deliver the solutions demanded to lead in this growing market.
