– Powered By MAGTEC

Magtec Technologies includes motors, gearboxes, generators, power controllers, battery systems and condition monitoring systems specifically designed for truck, bus and special applications; such as autonomous vehicles, off-road, tracked and defence logistics and personnel carriers.

HVDC Battery Systems

Magtec design and manufacture EV and hybrid vehicle battery systems from 27kWhr to more than 300kWhr using a range of high performance LiFePO4 cells.

Battery systems include full battery management, thermal management, on board vehicle charging and through-life condition monitoring.

Magtec have designed and installed energy buffers using super capacitors on commercial vehicles up to 27t GVW with peak power capabilities of 300kW and energy storage capacity of more than 3 MJ.

Power Controllers

Magtec manufacture a range of power controllers for drive systems from 40kw to 500kW output power and operating at DC bus voltages from 200v to 800v.

Whilst the primary function of the power controller is to provide smooth and reliable traction control during driving and braking, Magtec controllers also incorporate all the other functions required to control the vehicle and battery system.

These include:

  • Vehicle control interfaces (accelerator pedal, brake pedal etc)
  • Battery communications and pre-charge and isolation systems
  • DCDC converters for charging vehicle 12v or 24v systems
  • Auxiliary inverter for driving an external PAS pump motor and air compressor motor

The controller software includes many standard features including:

  • ABS/EBS integration / Creep functions
  • Electronically limited acceleration rates
  • Anti-slip function / Electronic diff-lock function
  • Through life data logging / Remote monitoring via GPRS
  • Customer configuration tools


Magtec’s family of motors and gearboxes, all manufactured inhouse in the UK, can power electric and hybrid vehicles over 7.5 tonne up to 44 tonnes. Recent additions include traction motors and gearboxes for rail application, which deliver high power outputs.

Magtec drive systems are provided with through life data logging as standard.

Magtec can also provide vehicle logging systems that include GPS and GPRS based telematics facilities that allow remote software upgrades, remote system tuning and real time diagnostic facilities.
