Reduced consumption and CO2 emissions New “Efficiency Line” generators from Bosch Ideal addition to start-stop systems

Bosch recently started production of a new, enhanced-efficiency generator series. An improved electrical configuration and optimized materials have enabled the manufacturer’s engineers to increase the efficiency of all variants to over 70 percent (according to VDA). The Efficiency Line (EL) generators consequently need less mechanical power to generate the energy for the vehicle’s electrical consumers. This reduces fuel requirements – and therefore CO2 emissions, too. The new Bosch generators were first introduced at MINI and in the Ford Transit.

Bosch Motorsport Gasoline direct injection for use in racing vehicles
Bosch Motorsport is offering a new gasoline direct injection system for use in racing vehicles. With its engine control unit from the MS 5 product family and its HPI 5 high-pressure power stage unit, the refined system incorporates all the electronic components. It also incorporates the complete hydraulic system: the HDEV 5 high-pressure injection valves, and the HDP 5 high-pressure pump with an integrated demand control valve. “Bosch direct injection is the ideal basis for innovative engine designs,” says Klaus Böttcher, the director of Bosch Motorsport. Changes in engine specifications are now being discussed extensively in several racing series.
