Slopehelper transmission is based on the basic principle of timing belts and chains, all this powered by brilliant electro mechanics. This combination provides high torque with low voltage by using a permanent magnet synchronous motor with enormous lifetime and rare/small maintenance costs.
The Slopehelper’s drive train has electronically controlled V-belt CVT without a clutch! It’s possible because IntEn inverter has a unique switching technology that provides high thrust with zero RPM of the electric motor. Thus drive of the Slopehelper provides transmission long life and a huge benefit of the belts.
The timing belts which we use are resistant to extreme weather conditions and suitable for temperatures from -40 to +80 C°. Their main feature is that they do not stretch because of carbon tension member and therefor can be used as a replacement for chain drives. This is very cost effective and maintenance-free, reducing product price and the cost of further maintenance. This whole system significantly reduces the amount of different spare parts from different suppliers.
As a result, friction of the belt by clutch during starting off is a significantly reduce resource of the belt and transmission itself.
The chain driving system synchronized with the timing belts is a very reliable solution for the driving system of the vehicle.
The third stage of the transmission are roller chains. Made of a combination of heat treatable and case hardening steel, this allows us big tension and force.
Chains with an uneven number of links are supplied with inner links at both ends which creates an enormously long lifetime.
The Slopehelper’s drive train has electronically controlled V-belt with continuously variable transmission (C.V.T.). This is possible because inverter has a unique switching technology that provides high thrust with zero RPM of the electric motor when load applied. This approach provides a possibility for Slopehelper to get high pull immediately after start without any belt friction in the clutch. With this technology it isn’t necessary to use overpowered engines and inverters to get high pull when movement starts.
All of this, as a principle of operation of the Slopehelper, makes it have an enormously long service period and even longer lifetime. Making it a unique product with no direct competition so far on the market.
