Knorr-Bremse at Busworld Europe 2019: efficient solutions for sustainable mass transit concepts

With its electrical components for bus fleets, Knorr-Bremse offers solutions for future-proof urban mobility

Knorr-Bremse Commercial Vehicle Systems, Munich, and Kiepe Electric, Düsseldorf, are sharing a booth at Busworld Europe in Brussels (18.-23.10.2019). At booth 514 in hall 5, customers will find strategies, products and services themed around sustainable mass transit concepts such as electric bus fleets.

“Our solutions are geared to emission-free driving, the development and installation of complete electrical systems, absolute performance and high quality – all aimed at enabling sustainable mass transit operations,” says Kiepe Electric Managing Director Dr. Heiko Asum, describing the company’s portfolio of products and services. Among those solutions are the new Smart Fleet Management (SFM) system, the continuously enhanced In Motion Charging (IMC®) technology and the future-oriented electric bus kit concept.

  • In Motion Charging 500 (IMC®) from Kiepe Electric is the most effective and efficient charging concept for electric buses on the market. As there is no need for the buses to stop in order to charge their batteries, it eliminates any charging station bottlenecks. With IMC, buses can charge their batteries from the overhead lines while in motion. On sections of route without overhead lines, the vehicles switch to battery power.
  • The innovative Smart Fleet Management (SFM) system from Kiepe Electric is a self-learning AI energy management system that makes scheduled service operations more robust and increases network capacity. SFM gathers data on consumption, route and performance, and enables automatic and predictive control of buses. SFM covers all kinds of charging concepts, including IMC.
  • Smart Fleet Management is also designed for the latest generation of Kiepe Electric traction equipment for electric vehicles. This includes Kiepe Fleet Management (KFM) which cuts maintenance costs and predicts upcoming maintenance and repair needs, the smart Kiepe Traction Control (KTC) system and the new Kiepe Electric Traction Inverter (KTI).
  • In its electric bus kit, Kiepe Electric has translated its systems expertise into a future-proof customer offering. This comprises the plug & play assembly of complex systems, predictive maintenance, smart fleet management and digitized solutions.
  • Kiepe Electric has also reorganized its range of aftermarket services, adding new services to align its portfolio with future customer requirements. Vehicle data management (big data analysis) and the resultant services such as condition-based maintenance are set to increase vehicle availability and cut life cycle costs, based on service level agreements. Along with energy efficiency advice and battery management for trolleybuses (including aspects such as recycling) standard features of the portfolio also include spare part- and obsolescence management.
