A key talking point, explains Collin Krantz, John Deere Power Systems OEM implementation manager, is the Kreisel Battery Pack 63 (KBP63), which utilises Kreisel Electric’s patented immersion cooling technology for efficient thermal management. This ensures that all cells are stressed equally, prolonging battery life while meeting high safety standards. Lifetime, Kreisel’s immersion cooling technology, offers a low temperature spread of <1°C throughout the module, thus increasing service life and reliability.

In addition, the company is showcasing a series of inverters based on a modular concept that supports single or dual configurations with a variety of other hardware options.
