EHS, Electro Hydraulic Steering unit 

New generation electric motor-pump unit with brushless motor including integrated drive electronics and patented gear profile low noise pump 

 

The Concentric EHS unit is specifically designed for steering applications for on highway heavy vehicles. Typically it can replace the conventional engine driven power steering pump in a bus or a truck. Its robust construction is designed for long life time, even in very tough conditions. 

 

• Compact design; 370 x 150 x 170mm 

• System weight: <20kg (depending on pump housing material choice) 

• Simple installation 

       o Electric: +, - and signal connector 

       o Hydraulic: Suction and pressure 

• Ingress protection class: IP6K9K 

• Concentric EHS unit is designed to allow unprotected chassis mounting 

• Environmentally fulfilling the following standards: 

 ISO 16750-1:2006, -3:2012, -5:2010, ISO7637-2:2011

Standard basic CAN bus capabilities 

The Concentric EHS unit can be programmed to fit the demand of the application. The standard version has a simplified J1939 interface with the following signals: 

Input: Speed signal 

Outputs: Speed signal feedback, current consumption, fault indicator, over temperature warning
