Power Electronic

Inverter

Electronic ProductsInverter

Inverter

Purpose:
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) run on electric power instead of gasoline. Inverters are used to convert electric power stored in high capacity batteries from direct current (DC) to alternate current (AC) so as to drive motors for propulsion.

Strengths:
Calsonic Kansei manufactures the inverter installed on the Nissan LEAF, which is the world's first mass production BEV. Our production capability is able to meet the future growth of BEVs.

LIN Communication Motor Actuator For HVAC

Electronic ProductsLIN Communication Motor Actuator For HVAC

LIN Communication Motor Actuator For HVAC

Purpose:
In air conditioners for vehicles, internal air flaps are used to change the air outlet and adjust air temperature. This motor actuator is a drive unit for moving these flaps to their designated positions.

Strengths:
By using LIN communication, we are able to reduce the number of harnesses required, thereby helping to reduce the vehicle's weight and cost. The actuator itself is also one of the world's smallest and lightest, further contributing towards reducing the system's overall weight.

Blower Motor

Blower Motor

<Brushless Motor For Air Conditioners>

Purpose:
Calsonic Kansei's brushless blower motor is able to achieve the requirements of motors used for air conditioning and battery cooling: low noise, high efficiency, compact size, and long life.

Strengths:
In addition to traditional motors, we have commenced production of CB9, a high-power motor for air conditioning. High efficiency and low noise is achieved through optimization of the magnetic circuit and switching control timing design.

Body Electronic

Body Control Module (BCM)

Electronic ProductsBody Control Module (BCM)

Body Control Module (BCM)

Purpose:
This is the central controller in body electronics systems. It contributes to safety and security by integrating functions that assist in driving, such as controlling the headlights and wipers; functions that improve convenience, such as automatically turning off the vehicle’s interior lights and central door locks; and security functions such as an engine immobilizer.

Strengths:
We have a history of development spanning many years, and have been delivering to a wide range of locations. We are able to recommend the most appropriate BCM at the system level for vehicles ranging from compact cars to luxury cars.

Keyless System

Electronic ProductsKeyless System

Keyless System

<General Type>

Purpose:
Our keyless entry systems allow the user to easily lock and unlock doors, and open the trunk by remote control.

Strengths:
We are able to achieve a high level of security, reliability, and comfort using our vast knowledge in wireless technology and body electronics technology.

Gateway

Electronic ProductsGateway

Gateway

Purpose:
Numerous electronic control units are installed in vehicles to realize a variety of functions. As in-vehicle networks grow with the spread of autonomous driving and electrification, it becomes more and more important to reduce communication load. This product functions as a CAN communication data transfer unit that links domains within the in-vehicle network.

Strengths:
This product is able to carry out multi-channel, high-speed transfer of CAN communication, and also has the ability to protect the CAN network from cybersecurity threats.
It is compact, lightweight, has low power consumption, and is also eco-friendly.

Lithium-Ion Battery Controller (LBC)

Electronic ProductsLithium-Ion Battery Controller (LBC)

Lithium-Ion Battery Controller (LBC)

Purpose:
Our LBC monitors and controls each battery cells' condition to ensure that the lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles (EVs and HEVs) are being used safely. It also calculates the battery's capacity to provide information such as the charging and discharging amount, and the vehicle's possible cruising range.

Strengths:
We simultaneously achieved size reduction and low cost by integrating strong electric (400 V) and weak electric (12 V) on one PCB.

Human Machine Interface

Cluster Meter

Electronic ProductsCluster Meter

Cluster Meter

Purpose:
Cluster meters provide the driver with instant information about the vehicle, such as speed, engine RPM, fuel level, and warning indicators. In addition to vehicle information, Cluster meters with displays also serve as integrated displays, as they are able to display other information such as for navigation and audio.

Strengths:
Calsonic Kansei is able to develop human machine interfaces which are accurate and have high-precision display capabilities. Our unique approach is based on ergonomics to pursue optimal displays using our technologies in illuminated visibility and instantaneous readability nurtured over many years.

Integrated Control Switche

Electronic ProductsIntegrated Control Switche

Integrated Control Switche

Purpose:
Our integrated control switches integrate the operations of various systems such as the air conditioner and the audio system into one panel.

Strengths:
In addition to conventional mechanical switches, we are able to provide devices for optimal operation integrating functions such as touch panels with displays.

Air Conditioner Control Switche

Electronic ProductsAir Conditioner Control Switche

Air Conditioner Control Switche

Purpose:
These are control switches for operating air conditioners.

Strengths:
We provide lightweight and compact control switches that incorporate our original structure, which is based on expertise accumulated over many years from considering the different ways switches are used by people.

Occupant Detection System

Electronic ProductsOccupant Detection System

Occupant Detection System

Purpose:
This system assesses whether the occupant in the passenger seat is an adult or a child. The airbag controller can then appropriately control the airbag's deployment based on the system's assessment.

Strengths:
This system adopts Calsonic Kansei's unique occupant detection algorithm which gives accurate and stable assessments even when driving.
