New Modine Battery Thermal Management System Targets Off-Highway EV Market

Modine Unveils Battery Thermal Man. System for Off-Highway EVs

The new solution delivers a complete, plug-and-play system suited to the harsh environments of off-highway machines.

With a global push toward electrifying vehicles across all commercial segments, Modine Manufacturing Company, a designer and manufacturer of thermal management solutions, has announced the launch of a new edition of its EVantage Battery Thermal Management System designed to meet the specific demands of on- and off-road electric vehicles. The new Battery Thermal Management System with a Liquid-Cooled Condenser, or L-CON BTMS, combines proprietary heat exchanger technology with smart controls and electronics designed to withstand dirty, harsh environments found in mining, construction, agriculture, specialty and transportation applications.

The Modine L-CON BTMS addresses the unique thermal management needs of commercial EV batteries across a broad range of vehicles by being adaptable to fit into diverse chassis layouts. The system features plug-and-play integration, provides unprecedented flexibility for vehicle designers, and can optimize the temperature range for an entire bank of batteries with a single unit, according to Modine. With the freedom to integrate battery thermal management on space-constrained off-highway and commercial chassis, manufacturers can ensure optimal battery performance in harsh, dirty environments.

“The L-CON BTMS gives our customers tremendous flexibility to meet their performance demands and space constraints and deliver industry-leading reliability for off-highway EVs,” said Mike Kis, director of Advanced Thermal Systems at Modine. “EV battery cooling systems used in particularly dirty environments have historically been vulnerable to clogging from debris, and this new design provides significant mitigation. This is another example of how Modine helps electrify transportation by giving our customers solutions that bring more commercial EVs into more market segments.”

The L-CON BTMS regulates EV battery temperature using both heating and cooling circuits. Using a liquid-cooled condenser, the BTMS can be situated anywhere on the vehicle, according to Modine. Coupled with a master thermal control unit running proprietary firmware, Modine battery thermal management systems are purpose-built to meet the requirements of heavy-duty vehicle platforms to keep EV batteries within optimal temperature ranges under all operating conditions – from hot summer afternoons to icy winter mornings.

“As a US-based thermal management solutions manufacturer, Modine is ideally positioned to serve the needs of domestic off-highway machine and specialty vehicle makers as demand continues to grow,” said Gina Maria Bonini, vice president and general manager of Advanced Thermal Systems at Modine. “We are committed to helping our customers bring their zero-emissions commercial platforms to market faster, and the L-CON BTMS allows us to do this for even the most demanding applications. I am grateful for the work of our engineering team, which continues to develop products that meet end-user demands for durability, reliability, and performance.”

Leveraging more than 100 years of thermal management experience, Modine EVantage systems, including the L-CON BTMS, are designed, manufactured and tested for operation in harsh environments and ruggedized to operate reliably in high-vibration applications, the company says.
