IPS’ transportation team introduced a new, low-cost hybrid electric conversion system for trucks and buses. It combines robust motor and drive technology with proprietary software and control electronics to create an easy-to-install hybrid electric system. The system pays for itself by reducing operation costs with its two primary functions.
Regenerative Braking, referred to as kinetic energy recovery, creates charges every time you press the brake pedal. Energy typically lost in heat gets stored in an ultra-efficient capacitor system to help launch the vehicle.
Launch Assist during vehicle acceleration supplements the conventional drivetrain with electric power in order to displace fuel consumption and reduce airborne emissions.
The Hybrid Electric System is available in three sizes for commercial truck and bus applications ranging from Class 2 thru Class 8.
