* The new Bosch HEF109-L starter motor for commercial vehicles
Hildesheim,Germany -Automotive World -21 Aug 2014: -- Powerful solution for diesel engines of up to 28 liters displacement as well as for stationary gas-powered engines... Adaptable to stringent system requirements... Large-volume engines place great demands on starters... At the top end of the power range, Bosch has a new addition to its 24-volt starter motor portfolio: the HEF109-L “large” heavy-duty starter motor for commercial vehicles and off-highway applications... The powerful starter motor generates 18 percent more power than the tried and tested “M” (medium) type starter motor on which it is based, and thus delivers a maximum output of 9.2 kilowatts... This powerful single-starter solution makes a more complex parallel-starter system unnecessary. The technology is designed to achieve a mileage of up to 800,000 kilometers in on-highway use or 14,000 operating hours in off-highway applications...

Neunkerchen,Saarland,Germany -Automotive World -21 Aug 2014: -- Ambitious emissions standards are boosting business worldwide for Bosch Emission Systems GmbH and Co. KG (BESG). Regulations such as Tier 4 final emission limits and Euro 6 are driving demand for exhaust-gas treatment systems for trucks, diggers, and other mobile machinery... To keep pace with this rapidly increasing demand, BESG is now bringing new production facilities online in Neunkirchen, in Germany’s Saarland. At 3,500 square meters, the existing production halls reached the limit of their capacity some time ago. Now, nearly 15,000 square meters are ready for use... Bosch’s innovative integrated systems lower emissions per driven kilometer for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and construction machinery...

Gillingham, Kent, UK -Automotive World -21 Aug 2014: -- Among the industry’s top performing radar on the market today, Delphi’s electronically scanning radar achieves a significant milestone... Delphi Automotive PLC recently sold its one millionth electronically scanning radar (ESR) globally — a key milestone as car makers meet growing customer demand for new technologies that improve safety... Since its debut in 2009, Delphi’s ESR set the standard for long range automotive radar sensors. Key features were introduced in this radar, including multi-mode operation, digital beam forming, and a STAR-Pulse Doppler waveform that resulted in a new level of proficiency. Even with the industry adopting these features, ESR remains a top-performing sensor in the industry with sales to eight global automakers... Delphi’s sensing technologies monitor the surrounding environment and, in conjunction with workload management, help determine how and when infotainment content can be delivered to the driver. These same sensors can then off-load driver functions through driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control and lane keeping when they are needed...
