As a research and development company, we focus on researching new applications for our nanoFlowcell® technology. However, our integrative R&D approach sees nanoFlowcell® as an energy source, not as a singular technology. For that reason, we always consider the overall system within which our technology is incorporated. In the case of the QUANT 48VOLT and QUANTiNO 48VOLT, we designed the entire electric drive from scratch in order to create a perfect match between the drive system and the energy system. The result is our innovative nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT drive concept with low-voltage technology, which brings together zero-emissions mobility and amazing performance.
The benefits of our nanoFlowcell® technology include its high energy density (power) and modularity (usage-oriented scalability) as well as the flexibility of the system design (function follows form). nanoFlowcell® delivers power for the electric drive system which has a system architecture similar to that of electric vehicles with lithium-ion battery technology. Adapting and integrating nanoFlowcell® into existing electric vehicle concepts is therefore relatively straightforward. The modular design of nanoFlowcell® reduces vehicle modifications to a minimum.
Depending on the particular vehicle packaging, the volume of the electrolyte tanks and the nanoFlowcell® membrane can be scaled to underline the character of the vehicle in question. Future electric vehicle designs are no longer constrained by rigid and heavy battery packs or the safety requirements which apply to tanks containing highly explosive fuels – nanoFlowcell® gives designers and development engineers new freedom.
The QUANT prototypes demonstrate the modularity of nanoFlowcell® technology, which can be adapted as required according to OEM specifications. Depending on the application in question, nanoFlowcell® can be run in low-voltage or high-voltage networks. However, their unique benefits can be seen primarily in low-voltage applications.
We have the necessary component expertise for integrating nanoFlowcell® technology into different electric vehicle concepts. This is complemented by extensive skills when it comes to developing complex systems and control software. After all, our customers do not expect piecework – they demand integrated product solutions. That is what QUANT powered by nanoFlowcell® is all about.
