Tame-Power use cases on the e-mobility market
DC to DC converters for Symbio
Symbio chose Tame-Power to develop a specific DCDC module to equip its hydrogen range extender. This DCDC module is leaned against the fuel cell and shares the cooling circuit. It responds to very strong specific integration constraints and has been the subject of co-design work between the engineering teams of the two companies.
The Symbio range extender installed on the KANGOO ZE-H2 makes it possible to add an additional 150 km of range, several hundred vehicles of this type are already circulating today.
