Banke takes new customer requests about, for example, battery configuration, battery management, mechanical engineering, CAN architecture for chassis and bodies, etc. Still, we also have a wide range of our standard products.
Our E-PTOs are made for diesel or CNG trucks. To meet our customers’ requirements, we offer E-PTOs as a single unit (TM series) and split unit (CM series). First, E-PTO was developed and produced as a single unit. Later we started to get requests from some customers for an easier way to mount E-PTO into chassis and body in crane applications. That is how the split version was developed and introduced to the market. In the split version, customers get two boxes: one with the battery and the power box.
E-PTO has around 2000 full charging cycles. Therefore, the life of an E-PTO can be 7-8 years. But we have seen E-PTOs that, after eight years, still have the capacity of 90%. To prolong E-PTOs life, customers have to maintain them correctly. It means fully charging and balancing the battery every second week.
E-PTOs can power cranes, refuse collection vehicles, concrete mixers, refrigeration vehicles, etc.
