ERNI and STW develop the first intelligent central electric "Cube"

(PresseBox) (Kaufbeuren, ) Central electrical systems are responsible for the protection, distribution, switching and regulation of the electrical energy in a vehicle. In addition to the protection of the individual power circuits, larger loads, which for example include lights, lamps, air conditioning and heating, can be directly switched or regulated. In collaboration with ERNI, Sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW) is to supply simple and programmable solutions for the mobile machine market and automotive applications.

The passive central electric “Cube”, which is already a familiar ERNI product, is in future to be made available as an intelligent version with a control unit by STW. With the fusion of the plug-in and press-in technology from ERNI and the long years of experience in control electronics and serial production from STW, the partnership is offering an intelligent central electrical system which meets with the customer requirements for functionality and quality. Through the use of control modules, which have already proven their worth in the field, the new product is compatible with the STW control system portfolio and the STW toolchain.

In addition to the savings potentials offered by a standard central electric module (wiring and assembly for example), the intelligent system brings further benefits: The maintenance of legal requirements, diagnosis (e.g. inputs, outputs, fuses), error messages, extendibility and the realization of convenience functions such as Coming-home or Leaving-home. The central electrical system functions as a decentralized control unit in the vehicle CAN network.

An important advantage is the availability of customer-specific software implementation. In this way, the customer has the possibility to link the inputs and outputs via software as required.

Like most central electrical systems, these units are also supplied via an M8 threaded bolt. The connections to the peripherals take place via robust, ERNI connectors. The housing protection can be configured up to IP69K, in order to cope with environments such as those in the building trade, in agriculture and in other special vehicles and machines.

Through standard solutions and customer-specific design and production, the user receives function and cost-optimized solutions with tried and tested technology from the companies ERNI and STW.
