Now it’s time to join the MOTION
IT’S MOTION. It’s Emotion. It’s Movement. A word that highlights the DELLORTO’s philosophy to presents itself full of news at this EICMA edition. A history of passion and attention to the future which is revealed to the public by bringing to light all that spirit of innovation that has always been in its DNA. From the racing world to urban mobility.
Starting with carburators for motorbikes, it then expanded its product range by designing and manufacturing throttle bodies, injection systems and electronic control units, up to innovative electrification projects.
DELLORTO, over the years, has in fact invested in research and has been able to be among the first to intercept and lead market demands.
The medium-term strategy for electric propulsion was defined in 2018, and as early as mid-2019 the E-POWER team was born, working tirelessly to develop the product range that is now available on the market. E-POWER equips a number of different vehicles, and, to name a few, displayed at the booth: the Fantic scooter, the Casalini quadricycle, the Platum scooter and the Mondial electric motorbike linked to the CEMP project.
At EICMA, the innovation “Made in Brianza” proudly presents the E-POWER. project.
With the E-POWER project, DELLORTO offers the market a complete range of ELECTRIC POWERTRAINS designed for the light urban electric mobility of the future: from 250W for the scooter up to 15kW for the heavy quadricycle.
The project is designed to be highly integrated, modular, scalable and flexible at low voltage (<60V) and air-cooled to allow highly integrable solutions with various vehicle layouts and at competitive costs.
In addition to urban mobility, DELLORTO wants to pursue a transversality across industrial and leisure sectors where electrified solutions are already in place but are based on obsolete technology.
The aim is therefore to bring automotive logic into industrial sectors, such as small construction machinery, agricultural machinery, intra-logistics machinery, but also field such as marine industry, go-karts and golf karts.
DELLORTO’s E-POWER system includes 3 sizes of inverters, all integrated with Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) and DC/DC functions, two sizes of batteries of 2kWh and 2.3kWh equipped with latest-generation 21700 NMC cells, capable of guaranteeing high energy density and the possibility of swap thanks to the weight (less than 12 kg).
The BMS integrated in the Battery Pack allows up to 8 batteries to be simultaneously managed without the need for master devices.
The motor range is designed with high torque density to allow a direct-drive architecture between the motor and the vehicle wheel, saving efficiency loss and gearbox costs.
With the E-POWER project, DELLORTO is not only offering a product, but also an all-round service. Together with its partner REINOVA, DELLORTO is able to follow customers through all phases of the design of the electrical application, from performance simulation for the choice of powertrain, to system definition, interface with vehicle components, up to the application, testing, calibration and homologation phase.
There is already a clear trend on the market for small everyday vehicles to move towards electric traction, especially the 50cc and 125cc internal combustion vehicles used for daily urban mobility.
The electrification of these vehicles does not encounter any of the typical automotive barriers (recharging time, need for high-power columns, range not compatible with use, recharging studs in homes….) and will therefore have a significant development encouraged also by the policy of many cities, not only in Italy.
The urban mobility of the future will have to move towards a new paradigm that will see small, light, safe and reliable vehicles driven by a low-power interconnected electric powertrain in our cities, thus requiring low battery power.
DELLORTO, always open to challenges, participates as lead partner in the CEMP project, developed within the framework of the Lombardy Region Call Hub and co-financed by the European Union. The research partnership formed by the lead partner DELLORTO with OCTO Telematics, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and Energica Motor Company started 3 years ago, with the aim of achieving the demonstrator vehicle displayed as a world preview at the DELLORTO booth at EICMA
[Official Presentation: booth (Pad. 9 – H60)].
CEMP is an ‘intelligent’ electric propulsion project intended for light vehicles, aiming at energy, environmental and social sustainability. It comprises three interacting systems: the electric propulsion, the telematics unit and the driver assistance system, the so-called ARAS (Advanced Rider Assistance System). The synergy between electric propulsion, connectivity and driver assistance systems does not only avoid exhaust emissions, but also eases traffic congestion and prevents accidents.
The project targets L-category light vehicles: scooters, three-wheelers and microcars, vehicles that by their nature meet the demand for individual mobility and transport in urban centres. CEMP is a responsible innovation plan, because it combines the needs of environmental protection, health and safety of citizens with the achievement of positive industrial results.
Sustainable innovation for light urban mobility.
E-POWER together with the CEMP project are the answer to the needs of the smart cities of the future.
“Now it’s time to join the MOTION. A quote that represents the continuous will to innovate, not only in our core business such as the internal combustion engines, but also to face up to new challenges that future is bringing: green fuels with their enormous and often underestimated potential, or by pushing into sustainable urban mobility, which we believe will be one of the fastest growing sectors for the electric drive of the future. Now it is the time to enjoy the movement, taking full advantage of all the best that innovation has to offer us. “Now it’s time to join the MOTION”.
