Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division has announced its new GVM142 generator and auxiliary motor series, which is intended to be used in electric and hybrid vehicle accessory applications. Pre-production units are currently being tested for high-power alternator replacements as well as electrohydraulic pump applications such as power steering and aerial lift hydraulics.
The latest addition to Parker’s GVM family includes the 142 mm frame size with an SAE A adapter mount, designed to be close-coupled to hydraulic pumps. Within this frame size, there are 3 rotor lengths and dozens of winding variations, offering over 100 combinations of base speed and power output.
The GVM family of motors offers rated power from 2.6 kW to 30 kW+, torque up to 36 Nm, speed range from 1600 to 9800 rpm, peak power densities up to 3.7 kw/kg, and operating voltages from 24 VDC to 800 VDC. All are compliant with SAE J1455 environmental standards.
“With the addition of this product, Parker will be able to deliver an electric motor suitable for mobile power generation and electrohydraulic pumps that can be exactly matched to the vehicle’s needs,” said Business Development Manager Jay Schultz. “Vehicle designers no longer have to compromise on a motor with performance that is ‘close enough.’”
Future phases will include 310 mm and 470 mm frame sizes.
