The eLION platform is described as an advanced, high-voltage portfolio that includes a full range of modular systems for the electrification of mobile machinery, including motor-generators, inverters, gearboxes, software and accessories.

Developed for the challenging off-highway environment, the portfolio is scalable and supports driving and work functions in a power range from 20 kW to 200 kW (peak power up to 400 kW), for applications in both compact and heavy machines.

The eLION motor-generators and inverters are rugged, robust systems that comply with the IP6K9K ingress protection requirements, says the company, and are engineered to operate across demanding temperature ranges from -40 °C to 85 °C.  The shock and vibration resistance of the eLION components is up to 50 g for shock and 10 g for vibration.

Bosch Rexroth also announced that it has acquired HydraForce, which focuses on mechanical and electrical cartridge valves and hydraulic integrated circuits (HIC). The acquisition allows Bosch Rexroth to offer a wider range of compact hydraulic components and systems, the company said.
