The electrification of mobility continues to advance in all sectors of the economy, with REO components already demonstrating their durability and reliability on a daily basis. These capabilities are of particular importance for heavy vehicles, as the high dynamic forces, adverse environments and intensive continuous operation involved demand excellent quality and reliability.

REO has a wide product portfolio with scalable performance available to cater for these specific requirements. For example, the NTT 9339/375/0.06 sinus filters, ensure a clean on-board vehicle power supply to electrically operated excavators. Whether there is salty air, fine dust or thick mud, these sinus filters ensure disruption-free and low maintenance operation. The e-motor works more than twice as efficiently as a comparable diesel engine. Unlike the latter, it is also only active when it is actually needed. As a result, no energy is wasted during idling periods. This conserves resources and enables a level of operation that is significantly quieter, more enjoyable and, ultimately, saves money. Starting from their production all the way through to their recycling, e-excavators benefit from a 90% better carbon footprint over the course of their life cycle.

“We recognized at an early stage the change in social awareness and resulting potential in the field of e-mobility. As a result, our investment in research and development work in this area is now paying dividends. We offer a unique product portfolio globally with our intelligent and smart test systems that can be used in almost any area of e-mobility.” Jasminka Usein

With the ongoing move towards electrification, REO has combined its strengths in the production of inductive, resistive and electronic components to provide a cohesive and unique offering in the market, while many providers are forced to purchase technologies, REO can rely on more than 95 years of experience, thus affirming its innovative in-house capability, and particularly so in cases where sophisticated, turn-key test systems are required.
