Reduce emissions with exact stops and starts
SKF engineer Susanne Blokland and her SKF team have made a key contribution to this technology; the SKF Rotor Positioning Bearing. A magnetic field from this bearing provides the engine control system with the rotor’s exact angular position, thus enabling the engine to be conveniently re-started.
The bottom line is significantly reduced CO2 emissions. Up to 30 percent in heavy city traffic. And fuel consumption may be cut proportionally. It’s another great example of knowledge engineering at work.
