A cost effective and energy efficient solution for cooling engines and exhaust systems in rail vehicles is provided by Rexroth’s hydrostatic fan drive systems. The cooling systems provide a dependable way of optimising engine and combustion temperatures, which is an essential pre-requisite for satisfying increasingly stringent emission requirements.
The robust BODAS RC controller is a flexible programmable vehicle PLC. It is used in mobile applications with hydrostatic transmissions to achieve maximum results from the hydraulics through sophisticated closed loop controls. The controller ensures the fan operates at the right speed, to ensure minimum time in the inefficient warm up phase, to maximum speed when the engine is operating at full power.
