36/42 Volt Systems Are Coming !. By: A.S.T. Training Copyright 2001. Why is it called a 42 volt system ?. The multiple factor: 6 volt battery/7 volt charging….x2 12 volt battery/14 volt charging…x3 36 volt battery/42 volt charging…. Avoid Brownout. Why do we need this ?.
By: A.S.T. Training
trucks will be 42 volt
by 2010.. So they say.....
Electric water pumps.
Electric A/C compressors
Electric power steering racks.
Electric brakes and suspension.
Electric valve trains.
Idle shut down.
Rear mounted ISG “integrated starter/generator”
Multiple batteries or new battery technology.What is in store for technology ?
Disappearing drive belts will reduce drag on engine, resulting in improved emissions.
This is a biggie !
Obviously no cam shaft drag as well as no timing chain or belt worries , but also no more valve timing issue. The PCM will now be able to precisely control spark timing and advance.
This will have a dramatic improvement on emissions and horsepower !
