Regenerative Braking

The Odyne System’s energy storage systems are partially recharged during regenerative braking.

This occurs when the Odyne System’s electric motor connected to the transmission’s PTO becomes a generator to recapture lost energy used to recharge the system’s lithium-ion battery.

The Odyne System’s regenerative braking feature captures up to 40kW, power that normally is absorbed by the chassis brakes and lost as heat.

The regenerative braking is disabled when ABS is active or manually via a dashboard mounted switch.
