Mechatronic control system of the power unit of the vehicle

Application: automatic control of a diesel engine, a dry friction clutch and mechanical gear box.

Advantages: optimal control of the power unit in all operating modes; increased by 12–15 % of the resource of the power unit; increase of 5–7 % of average speed; an increase of 2–3 % of fuel consumption; reduction of mental and physical load on the driver.

Key features: a hardware/software platform: smart controller Ecomat R 360 (2 PCs), CAN-inlet/outlet modules CR2012/CR2511, LED-monitor ifm CR0451; CAN-adapter IXXAT Automation USB-to-CAN V2.2; electromagnetic proportional valves VEP 3121-1 (2 PCs); pneumatic valves V0307-5D0-Q with direct electromagnetic control (7 PCs.); actuators – pneumatic, piston and diaphragm type.

Operating temperature range is from –40 to +85 °C.

Range of operating air pressures is 0.45–0.8 MPa.
