Hella has made great strides in supporting customers on the way to electromobility and offers a complete portfolio of products that support all stages of automotive electrification. Hella has developed the Dual Voltage Battery Management System especially for mild hybrid vehicles in the compact and mid-range segment. It bundles the conventional, separate core elements of 48 V hybridisation (48 V battery, 12 V battery and DC/DC converter) into a single product that takes up the package space of a conventional lead-acid battery. Depending on the application, the capacity of the installed Li-ion batteries is specifically used in the 12 V or 48 V vehicle electrical system.
