48 Volt Systems for Today and Tomorrow
The rising bar of C.A.F.E. fuel economy standards is having a profound effect on new technologies. 48-Volt Electrification is one of those new technologies happening now across several OEM lines including Dodge Ram pick-up trucks for the 2019 model year. Combined with variable displacement engine technologies, these multi voltage systems (12-volt and 48-volt) will help bridge the gap between more expensive higher voltage HEVs and conventional gasoline internal combustion powertrains.
Radar, Lidar, Lane Departure, Adaptive Cruise
ADAS (Automated Driver Assist Systems) are becoming common on today’s vehicles as we move closer and closer to fully autonomous vehicles. Will you be ready to service them?
Mazda Compression Ignition
While you may still see spark plugs in newer engines, they may not be used under all conditions! Mazda’s new Skyactiv-X engine promises to revolutionize the gasoline combustion engine by creating combustion w/o spark ignition. Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) has finally been perfected to allow for compression ignition w/o the extreme knock and NOx emissions.
