The ICU is a revolutionary electric vehicle product which performs two vital functions in the ElecTruck™ system:
- While the truck is moving, it converts DC power from the battery subsystem into AC power for the main drive motor, and
- While the truck is plugged in for recharging, it converts AC power from the grid into DC power to recharge the battery pack.
Each ICU supplies up to 150 kW to the vehicle traction motors and using one ICU as a charger can recharge a truck battery pack at power levels of up to 70 kW. The ICU can fully recharge and balance a truck battery pack in two to four hours.
