Efficient maintenance and production in the bus industry

Efficient maintenance and production in the bus industry
Electrically adjustable work platform

Innovative maintenance systems ensure minimised downtimes and maximum efficiency: The display by Günzburger Steigtechnik at BUS2BUS 2019 demonstrates how optimised processes can enable buses to be returned to service as quickly as possible on scheduled and long distance routes. This is achieved by substantially reducing the downtime during maintenance. This specialist provider of ladders and work platforms for the bus industry is presenting highly efficient and safe solutions for working at heights (ill.). Particular mention should be made of the high-end maintenance equipment such as the first cable-less, electrically adjustable work platform. Work processes are made much easier because it does not need to be located near to a power socket. A high power battery ensures outstanding performance and maximum flexibility. Safety is guaranteed because the surrounding area is monitored by a laser scanner and camera system.

No clearance – no compromises

No clearance – no compromises
Customised special constructions

“Higher, faster, further” – production and maintenance facilities in the commercial vehicle industry are becoming even more demanding and effective. And work safety should not be compromised by this process. The objective of access technology products should be to minimise downtimes while at the same time maximising work safety. To meet these conditions work and maintenance platforms, roof and side operating platforms have been created that dock on the external surfaces of machinery and vehicles with zero clearance. This enhances the safety of personnel working on and under the access systems. Moreover customer-specific solutions from KRAUSE offer infinitely variable height adjustment, are available in stationary or mobile forms and can be provided on request with all the necessary connections such as power and compressed air. At BUS2BUS 2019 this exhibitor is presenting its latest solutions as well as informing visitors to the stand about the advantages of its customised special constructions (ill.).

Increased range and zero emissions

Increased range and zero emissions
MAN Lion’s City urban bus

In view of the demands for progressively lower emissions in urban centres one thing is certain: to an overwhelming extent the future of local public transport will be fully electric. The display by MAN at BUS2BUS 2019 features the fully electric version of the new “MAN Lion’s City” bus for urban use (ill.). A slight design modification emphasises the unique nature of the electric drive system. The most striking features are the lack of a raised rear engine compartment and the improved seating area due to the fact that the batteries are installed on the roof. Firstly this removes the batteries from the rear of the vehicle, which is vulnerable in the event of a crash. Secondly it allows for more design flexibility, more pleasant lighting and up to four additional seats inside. The fully electric driveline of the Solobus 160 provides up to a maximum of 270 kW, the energy coming from the modular batteries, with a capacity of 480 kWh in the Solo version and 640 kWh in the articulated bus. The Lion’s City E has a range of 200 kilometres, and under favourable conditions this can increase to as much as 270 kilometres throughout the entire life cycle of the batteries.

BusMATRIK P2 on-board computer with printer

In recent years TeleMATRIK has become an effective supplier of comprehensive solutions for large and small privately owned bus companies. A new on-board computer is being introduced in 2019. The “BusMATRIK P2” (ill.) generation is a logical continuation of the already successful P1 ticket printer. This exhibitor is continuing along the same path and has installed more well-tested standard components such as the new Samsung Tab Active 2 as a driver display, as well as a standard single-board computer for the on-board systems and to control the printer. In addition to a new e-ticketing component the new on-board computer also has a built-in QR reader. This enables the new model to process all kinds of electronic and online tickets, including a VDV core application. New features of the tablet used in the BusMATRIK driver assistant include navigation by means of a graphic map and direct fare billing with print-out of receipts.

Cooling and heating in electric buses with an extended operating temperature range

Cooling and heating in electric buses with an extended operating temperature range
REVO-E pro roof-mounted air conditioning unit

The new ”REVO-E pro” roof-mounted air conditioning unit (ill.) from Valeo with heat pump technology for electric buses is celebrating a world premiere at BUS2BUS 2019. Reverse circulation in the heat pump can create a physical effect that causes the condenser in the air conditioning unit to freeze up. In particular when the external temperature is low this inhibits the smooth functioning of the heat pump. However, due to its virtual icing sensor and fully automated hot gas defroster with an energy-optimised defrosting time the REVO-E pro can be operated when outside temperatures are as low as -5 degrees Celsius, using R134a refrigerant, and down to -15 degrees Celsius with R449A. Together with the Valeo SC 620 control unit this provides a genuine stand-alone solution, meaning that all the air conditioning and control components are compactly integrated in the system and the control concept is decoupled from the on-board systems. The new air conditioning system can therefore be deployed in almost any bus anywhere in the world, regardless of the particular vehicle design.
