Haldex EMS is an integrated vehicle propulsion and implement system that recovers and redeploys vehicle kinetic energy to improve fuel savings on mobile equipment including lift trucks and wheel loaders. The EMS hydraulic system can store energy more quickly than batteries in electric hybrid systems and can distribute energy in a controlled manner, unlike capacitors. Energy in the system can be transferred instantly and simultaneously to all functions within the vehicle. Unlike current electronic strategies developed to control hydraulic equipment, Haldex EMS began with a control strategy and then added the hydraulic equipment for execution. The system features stable response, improved productivity and comfort, and the elimination of a number of powertrain components, including transmissions, differential, drive shafts, torque converter, power take-offs (PTO), and PTO pumps.
