As the EV market continues to rapidly expand, electric propulsion systems must be optimized for function, efficiency, range, and cost in order to profitably meet the growth of demand.
Amsted Automotive has created a novel, multi-functional clutch technology that improves EV efficiency—facilitating seamless eAWD disconnect.
Our controllable disconnect clutch and actuation technology provides full disconnect and locking functions, with added features for controlled bi-directional one-way clutch operation.
When applied to EV drivetrains, this novel and flexible system gives eAWDs the ability to quickly and reliably shift between disconnected, forward propulsion, and regen or reverse modes.
The result? As much as 5-10% efficiency gains that eliminate the possibility of blocked or rejected shifts in eAWD vehicles.
