About Exro Technologies Exro is a clean technology company pioneering intelligent control solutions in power electronics to help solve the most challenging problems in electrification.
Exro has developed a new class of control technology that expands the capabilities of electric motors, generators, and batteries. Exro enables the application to achieve more with less energy consumed. Exro’s advanced motor control technology, the Coil Driver™ , expands the capabilities of powertrains by enabling two separate torque profiles within a given motor. A major advancement in the sector, this dynamic motor configuration enables efficiency optimization for each operating mode resulting in a reduction of energy consumption.
The controller automatically selects the appropriate configuration in real-time so that power and efficiency are intelligently optimized. The Exro Cell Driver™ is a fully integrated system equipped with our proprietary Battery Control System™ (BCS). The BCS actively balances the charging and discharging, enables a higher depth of control on the cells, enhances safety, and intelligently isolates faults to ensure continuous power delivery while matching power quality.
