Omni introduces an electric powertrain for skid steers

Omni Powertrain Technologies provides electrical, hydrostatic and mechanical powertrain solutions to on- and off-highway markets, including agricultural and construction equipment and commercial vehicles. Omni products include enclosed transmissions, planetary drives, PTO shafts, electric motors and power electronics. The firm has operations in the US, China and Italy.

Now Omni has developed a new electric powertrain designed for the propulsion of skid steers (compact loaders used for a variety of loading, digging and grading operations). The new product features a robust Omni gearbox paired with a Magelec Propulsion axial flux motor.

The SP4000 gearbox offers peak efficiency of 97% and 4,000 Nm of peak torque (2,500 Nm continuous). Maximum input speed is 7,000 rpm.

The MP21 electric motor is a liquid-cooled axial flux motor that’s designed to offer high torque and power density in a compact package. It supports battery voltages between 200 to 800 VDC, and has an IP67/IP6K9K enclosure rating for reliability. It boasts efficiency greater than 95% across the operating range. Motor operation is optimized using Magelec inverters.

The new powertrain offers a flexible motor design that offers positional choices for mounting inverters, HV cabling and cooling ports. Motor and gearbox combinations can be tailored to meet the needs of individual OEMs.
