Dana selected bauma 2022 in Germany to introduce to the global industry its Spicer Electrified eSP502 e-Transmission, a flexible platform designed to support the electrification of vehicles across the mining, construction, material handling and forestry markets. Now available for order, the e-transmission was part of Dana’s exhibit at the recent show.
Leveraging Dana’s powershift technology, the eSP502 e-Transmission offers a dual-motor, two-speed design that is built on a flexible platform to enable optimized performance at maximum efficiency in a compact package. The modular approach to the transmission design allows for a single motor solution, as well as an optional power take-off, depending on the specific vehicle requirements.
The eSP502 comes with next-generation control software and functional safety readiness, enabling easy installation and smooth integration, and it features a patented clutch design that minimizes clutch drag to maximize efficiency.
“Our off-highway customers face some of the world’s most challenging work environments and require solutions that meet the highest levels of performance, efficiency, reliability, and sustainability,” said Senior Vice President of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems Jeroen Decleer.
“Dana’s expertise across a wide-range of industries allowed our team to deliver a modular e-Transmission solution that can be adapted to the unique needs of each customer’s specific vehicle application.”
Delivering high efficiency and superior performance in a compact package, the dual-motor version supports continuous power outputs up to 326 horsepower (240 kW), while the single-motor configuration is engineered for 187 hp (140 kW) of continuous output.
It is equipped with field-proven Dana TM4 high-voltage motors from up to 800 volts to improve efficiency, reduce total package size, and provide redundancy as needed.
The eSP502 e-Transmission’s compact and modular design allows it to be adapted for use in 4×2 or 4×4 vehicle applications with a range of ratio options to support a variety of vehicle types, including wheel loaders and rough terrain cranes in construction; large lift trucks, empty container handlers, reach stackers, and terminal tractors in material handling; load haul dumpers in underground mining; and forwarders in forestry.
