2023.03.21 11:03 Powerful_Argument732 Semiconductor Stocks are on the move.....Industry group chart as of 3/17 at bottom of post
Semiconductor Stocks are on the move.....actually they have been on the move for some time and are now at the top....but for how long? The Fabless industry group has quickly ascended to the #2 of 197 industry groups as seen on the industry ranking chart at bottom of this post. I posted this for one of our members on his Discord channel because he had expressed interest in shorting certain stocks in the group a month or two ago....I suggested he reconsider for the group was making a strong move up. Now that they are at the top....shorting would be a lot less risky. But I prefer (and have to use in retirement accounts) to use Bear ETFs for betting against stocks or groups of stocks and SOXS fits that bill for me. I am not buying yet but may start adding small lots ($18+ / share with a 52-week high of $89.50) while we watch and see how well NVidia & AMD and others continue performing. And don't get me wrong....there are some semiconductor stocks that I will remain long in and continue reducing cost basis on - Mobileye is one of those. Here is a thorough assessment on these stocks for your review:submitted by Powerful_Argument732 to MotleyFools [link] [comments]
Semiconductor Stocks Climb Yet Inventories Bedevil Chip Industry; A Reality Check May Be Coming
PATRICK SEITZ03:32 PM ET 03/15/2023
Semiconductor stocks were a godsend to investors in February as the overall market backed off from January's advance. After a strong first month of the year, chipmakers scored more gains. That was especially true for the fabless semiconductor industry, which rose another 6.3% on strength in stocks like Nvidia (NVDA), Monolithic Power Systems (MPWR) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).
Yet during that same period, as chipmakers reported December-quarter earnings, a raft of data on shipments, prices and inventories showed the semiconductor industry still in a downturn.
Cyclical investors, those practiced at speculating on semiconductor stocks' reversal from their deep, periodic downturns, were betting on a bottom.
Old Industry Cycle, New Twist
But this cycle from the start has been unlike others in a long history of semiconductor industry booms and busts. The cycle made its way through the pandemic years of distorted demand trends and knotted supply chains. Then, as cyclical investors moved into many top stocks, leading them to flash early signs of an upturn, another factor also came into play. Another sort of optimism, fueled by views that increasingly diverse end markets signaled a more durable, stable chip industry, also helped bolster the upturn.
Among fabless chip stocks, Nvidia surged more than 58% for the year through February. Monolithic Power rallied 37%. Among chip manufacturers, ON Semiconductor (ON), more commonly known as Onsemi, and STMicroelectronics (STM) surged 24% and 50%, respectively.
Some semiconductor stocks continue to climb. Still, an array of fundamental chip industry metrics point to difficulties ahead. In particular, many semiconductor companies report stubbornly high inventories in their sales channels and with customers. A large segment of analysts accustomed to assessing chip cycles say investors who put the bottom in semiconductor stocks at the end of 2022 might be prematurely optimistic.
"If you listen to all the (earnings) calls, no one has said that this is the bottom or that it's definitely going to get better soon," Robert Maire, an analyst with consulting firm Semiconductor Advisors, told IBD.

Pandemic Disrupted Semiconductor Industry Cycle
One thing is certainly true: The semiconductor industry's end markets are more diverse now than during past chip cycles. The determining factor in prior booms and busts was personal computer and smartphone sales. Now computer chips have made their way into many more devices. This lessens the industry's dependence on any one major product type.
The present chip cycle shows memory chips, PC processors and chips for smartphones and consumer electronics clearly in a downturn. At the same time, chip sales in automotive and industrial markets have remained strong.
But overall, the wild swings in demand for tech products during the Covid-19 pandemic have led to a steeper-than-usual down cycle, Semiconductor Advisors' Maire says.
"The industry got whipsawed by Covid and the supply chain issues," Maire said. "We went from a shortage to an excess in a pretty short span of time."
Semiconductor Stocks: Industry Recovery In Late 2023?
A clear risk factor for rising chip stocks is that the semiconductor industry still must reconcile its bloated inventories, Jefferies analyst Christopher Wood said in a recent note to clients. He warned of a "coming chip glut."
"The market action is assuming, heroically, a bottoming out of the semiconductor inventory correction in the first half of this year and a presumed recovery in demand in the second half, of which there is for now no evidence," Wood said.
Wall Street analysts generally expect sales in the broader chip market to turn positive in the second half of 2023. Many see PC chip sales as among the first segments that will turn around. That should help chipmakers AMD and its archrival Intel (INTC).

It is also possible, however, that the "orgy" of pandemic buying of PCs in 2020 and 2021 could also depress demand for three to four years, Wood says. Smartphone sales face a similar possibility, he says.
"Meanwhile, chips used in the auto sector are now seeing a big surge in inventory," Wood said. "The previous shortage of automotive chips has led to substantial double ordering."
Analysts see AMD sales and earnings falling through the first two quarters, then turning higher, according to FactSet. Intel is expected to shift from loss to profit in Q3 and post an earnings gain as sales edge higher in Q4.
World Semiconductor Trade Statistics forecasts a 4.1% decline in semiconductor sales in all of 2023. Sales rose 4.4% in 2022 and surged 26.2% in 2021.
Artificial Intelligence Spurs Semiconductor Industry Investments
Among the markets for more advanced chips, the data center market, tied to web services and cloud computing providers, is showing some signs of weakness. One clear exception is the portion of that market tied to artificial intelligence, especially graphics processors.
Excitement around generative AI applications, such as ChatGPT, has provided a lift for certain semiconductor stocks seen as beneficiaries of the trend.
Nvidia leads that group with its graphics processing units, accelerators, high-performance computing hardware and software. Other chip stocks likely to benefit include Broadcom (AVGO) for its application-specific integrated circuits and Marvell Technology (MRVL) for its high-speed networking and ASIC chips.
As a result, Broadcom earnings and sales have powered ahead, paying little mind to the pandemic's potholes. For Marvell, analysts see sales and earnings declines for the first three quarters this year, turning to narrow gains in the fourth quarter.
"There is a clear shift in spending priorities (by cloud service providers) to AI and technical infrastructure," Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis said in a recent note to clients. "We view Nvidia as the biggest beneficiary of the shift in spend to AI, and Broadcom and Marvell as beneficiaries in networking upgrades and semi-custom chips."
Downturn In Memory Chips
Like the prior chip cycle downturn, which lasted from late 2018 until early 2020, memory-chip makers have led the current correction. Micron Technology (MU) and other memory-chip makers started warning about weakness in the market in mid-2022.
The big wrinkle with this cycle in semiconductor stocks is the disruption caused by the Covid pandemic. As the pandemic got underway in early 2020, work-from-home and remote education trends fueled a buying binge in PCs and tablets. Consumers also splurged on consumer electronics and home appliances as they sheltered in place.
Then pandemic fears faded and the economy reopened. Consumers shifted their spending away from electronics. Analysts now project Micron will book losses in all four quarters of this fiscal year, dropping for the year to an estimated $2.20 loss per share, vs. an $8.35 profit for 2022.
Sales are forecast to turn up in the quarter ending in September, with the company shifting from loss to profit in the December-ending quarter.
Automakers Still Dealing With Chip Shortages
Automakers faced a severe shortage of chips during the pandemic. It was the result of a two-step process: first, they canceled orders ahead of a projected falloff in demand for new cars and trucks. But demand held steady. When carmakers went to place new orders, they found themselves at the back of the line at chip foundries. Only recently have the auto chip shortages started to ease.
In general, automakers use older chip technology. The semiconductor industry's production capacity for those chips is more limited than for higher-margin, leading-edge chips, such as those made by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM).
Semiconductor companies serving the auto market include Onsemi and STMicroelectronics, as well as NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Texas Instruments (TXN).
But across all of those segments of the chip landscape, unpredictable consumer behavior and knotted supply chains altered the traditional chip-cycle metrics.
"Covid threw a wrench into the cycle," Bill Jewell, a consultant with Semiconductor Intelligence, told IBD.
Factories shut down at the start of the pandemic and then reopened to chase a rapid acceleration in demand for PCs and other devices. Then consumers, after they had what they needed, stopped buying, Jewell says.
"PCs and smartphones account for so much of semiconductor consumption, especially memory, that when those slow down, it has a big impact on the market," Jewell said. "Automotive and industrial markets are holding up but they are not as big as the personal computer and smartphone markets."
For this year, analysts see STMicroelectronics earnings rising in Q1 and Q2 before undercutting year-ago levels. Sales and earnings forecasts for Onsemi, NXP and Texas Instruments are lower throughout the year.

Semiconductor Stocks Vs. 'Trough-Calling Euphoria'
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore sees the semiconductor industry situation as a hangover from pandemic disruptions.
"After about two years of semiconductor shortages resulting in a revenue/margin 'party' for the sector, the sector's fundamentals have pivoted to the 'hangover' stage," Seymore said in a recent note to clients. The hangover is illustrated by chipmakers lowering their revenue and earnings estimates for the past two quarters in the face of record-high inventories, he said.
Chip Stocks To Watch And Semiconductor Industry News
Investors observing the recent weak earnings reports now anticipate a trough in the first half of 2023 and a fundamental recovery in the second half of the year, Seymore said. That optimism reflects in this year's rise of the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, or SOX.
Year to date, the SOX is up 15.5% vs. a 1.6% rise for the S&P 500. The SOX includes the 30 largest chip stocks traded in the U.S.
"While we've seen this cyclical investing 'playbook' used successfully many times in the past, we also note that the timing and slope of the eventual recovery quickly becomes paramount once the trough-calling euphoria subsides," Seymore said.
He added, "We remain somewhat concerned that the magnitude of inventory builds coupled with still mediocre demand may limit the slope of the revenue, margin and EPS (earnings per share) recovery — even if first-half 2023 is indeed the bottom."
Chip Inventories Hit Record Highs
Aggregate inventory data across 26 of the largest semiconductor companies shows that inventories in the fourth quarter reached their highest levels since Deutsche Bank began collecting such data in 1994, Seymore said.
"The industry has finally entered the hangover stage, with the primary concerns going forward focused on the duration/magnitude of the headache, and equally importantly the timing/slope of the eventual recovery," Seymore said.
With such a cautious outlook, Seymore is focused on semiconductor stocks with reasonable valuations and company-specific catalysts. His favorite names include Broadcom, Marvell, MaxLinear (MXL), NXP Semi, Onsemi and Qualcomm (QCOM).
Auto Chip Stocks Remain Strong Segment
Meanwhile, demand for automotive chips should continue to hold up in 2023, buoying companies like Allegro MicroSystems (ALGM) and NXP, Wells Fargo analyst Gary Mobley said in a recent note to clients.
Production constraints caused by chip shortages hindered automobile sales for more than two years. And there remains a pent-up demand for new vehicles, Mobley said.
Plus, automotive-chip makers are benefiting from increased semiconductor content in each vehicle. That is thanks to the trends of electrification and autonomy, he said.
"As long as light vehicle unit production continues to improve toward normalized levels, higher (chip) inventories are needed," Mobley said.
FactSet consensus estimates show earnings gains for Allegro over the next thee quarters before slowing. Sales gains are forecast for the next five quarters.
'Soft Landing' For Semiconductor Stocks?
Most analysts are predicting a rolling recovery with some segments turning positive earlier than others.
Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse has forecast a "soft landing" for chip stocks and the semiconductor industry rather than a harsh downturn. Also, the reopening of the China economy should help with the recovery, he said in a note to clients.
Daniel Morgan, senior portfolio manager at Synovus Trust, underscored that the health of the semiconductor industry is a key barometer for the overall tech sector.
"The semiconductor sector is the plankton of the technology and manufacturing ocean," Morgan said in a recent note to clients. "Everything requires chips in it to run. Typically, the chip sector will lead the technology sector out of the valley and will be one of the first sectors to show green sprouts foreshadowing a pending recovery."
But Morgan added, "At this point there are few signs of a rebound."
And the upshot for investors in semiconductor stocks? The downtrend in the chip cycle started in the third quarter of 2022. It could persist for six quarters, similar to the 2018-2019 downturn, Morgan said.

2023.03.21 10:37 EagleEyeStx Bull Thesis for $GRIL
Muscle Maker Inc. (NASDAQ: GRIL) is a smallcap that has been making big moves in recent months. In a nutshell, its transitioned from being a relatively-sleepy restaurant franchise operator to a new player in the global agricultural commodities market, and the company has been making money hand over fist since the pivot was announced in mid-Q4. Share price has responded accordingly, with >4X gains from its all-time bottom of $0.30 in November to its current $1.29 (close yesterday). Here are the three leading reasons why I think this ticker has plenty more room to run despite the serious ground its covered in the past few months:submitted by EagleEyeStx to Wallstreetbetsnew [link] [comments]
1) The Chart: GRIL is currently +43% YTD and +230% over the past 6 months. And technical indicators are NOT suggesting that this is the result of a pump, but rather the growth looks sustainable, and with more on the way. GRIL’s price action is currently trading above its 100/200 SMA, and just yesterday it seems to have intercepted the 50 SMA; in other words, on the basis of moving averages GRIL is looking decidedly bullish.
This is supported by a positive reversal in MACD on 3/16, which continued into trading yesterday and suggests that we’re in for some more gains over the next few days. Lastly, RSI is sitting at a cozy 55, meaning that this stock is very fairly valued (in the context of a pump, RSI would likely be >70).
Note a) SMA intersects, b) RSI=54.67, c) MACD histogram is green, with signal lines coming up hot on a bullish x-axis intercept
Technical Indicator give a summary BUY rating, and MA gives a STRONG BUY rating
2) The pivot towards agricultural commodities markets. In November GRIL announced the formation of a new subsidiary, Sadot LLC, which ostensibly is part of a vertical integration strategy intended to reduce COGS for its restaurant franchises. At this stage, it looks like Sadot “currently focuses on international agricultural commodity shipping and trading for items such as soybean meal, wheat, and corn.” Regardless of how Sadot fits into the bigger picture for GRIL, its turning out to be a cash cow for the company.
Sadot generated >$200M in revenue over its first three months, and last month it hit a milestone of $3.3M in net income (according to a February 6th announcement; for the full details, check the 8-K from November 18th). This milestone triggered the appointment of two new board members (effective 3/1) by AGGIA, a global consultancy firm specializing in food/agri-logistics chains that has been managing Sadot’s day-to-day operations.
Furthermore, it looks like AGGIA retains the right to appoint additional board members pending they continue to hit net income milestones of $6.6M and $9.9M. This board appointment agreement seems a lot like a friendly take-over to me, hinting that GRIL intends on placing forward emphasis on Sadot and its penetration of the agri-supply chain market. Regardless of what the long-term game plan is, the formation of Sadot in Q4 and the subsequent windfall it has provided for GRIL signals an ambitious new direction for the company that thus far is proving highly profitable.
GRIL Investor Deck, pp 8
3) Ongoing expansion of its restaurant franchise business segment. GRIL isn’t putting all of its eggs in the same basket in terms of Sadot, AGGIA, and its pivot to the global agricultural commodities market. Their core business segment is centered on two fast-casual restaurant chains that have a current total of 44 locations, with 3 under construction and 49 franchise agreements sold. They also have a Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) food pickup and delivery subsidiary that currently operates 34 pickup locations across the US.
According to its most recent financials (TTM as of end-Q3 ‘22), GRIL’s restaurant/food delivery business segment generated $11M in revenue and $1.2M in gross profits. I’m very interested to see what the year-end figures look like, but I get the impression that at this stage GRIL has significant infrastructure in place and is now shifting into aggressive nationwide expansion. Given lower COGS and additional cash flow (thanks to Sadot) GRIL is just now starting to feel the effects of, I’m optimistic it will continue rolling out nationwide expansion for the restaurant chains/DTC locations over the course of 2023.
GRIL Investor Deck, pp 5
In sum, GRIL strikes me as a smallcap that is in the midst of a fundamental transformation that presents massive potential upside for early birds. It has embraced an aggressive vertical integration strategy (via Sadot) that is not only generating a significant revenue windfall, but will feed into GRIL’s pre-existing business segments to increase profit margins across the board. A glance at its price action movement over the past 6 months really illustrates the positive reception this move has had by investors, with GRIL posting robust triple-digit gains since November and technical momentum indicators suggesting that there’s more to come.
We should be seeing annual financials in the coming days or weeks, which will clarify exactly what’s been going on under the hood here since November. Regardless, after an impressive Q1 GRIL is looking poised for aggressive growth over the course of coming months. And no, I’m barely qualified to open a Reddit account let alone give financial advice–this analysis is my opinion only, DYOR before trading.

Today, we will introduce you to what rechargeable car and electric car types are.submitted by amywood123 to u/amywood123 [link] [comments]
In this era of rapid technological development, everything is slowly going into technology. Even the cars that are closely related to our lives have also come into the era of advanced technology, and you can find the functions and some artificial intelligence and other elements on the cars now, and even now there are electric cars.
What Are Battery-Charged Cars?
The Main Types Of Electric CarsTypes of electric vehicles.
Pure Electric VehiclesA pure electric vehicle is a vehicle that is powered by an electric motor.
The main difference (dissimilarity) between a pure electric vehicle, relative to a fuel car, lies in four major components,
The speed and start-up speed of pure electric vehicles depend on the power and performance of the drive motor, the range of the vehicle depend on the capacity of the on-board power battery, and the weight of the on-board power battery depends on what kind of power battery is used, such as lead-acid, zinc-carbon and lithium batteries. Their volume, specific gravity, specific power, specific energy, and cycle life are different. This depends on the manufacturer’s positioning and use of the vehicle class as well as market definition and market segmentation.
Pure electric vehicle drive motor has DC brush, brushless, permanent magnet, electromagnetic, and then AC stepping motor, etc., their selection is also related to the vehicle configuration, use, and grade. In addition, the speed control of the drive motor is also divided into stepped speed control and step-less speed control, with an electronic speed controller and without a speed controller. The motor has a hub motor, inner rotor motor, single motor drive, multi-motor drive, combined motor drive, etc.
Advantages:The technology is relatively simple and mature, as long as there is a power supply that can be charged.
Disadvantages:The energy stored per unit weight of the battery is too small, but also because the battery of the electric car is more expensive, and has not formed an economic scale, so the purchase price is more expensive, as for the use cost, some use price is more expensive than the car, some price is only 1/3 of the car, which mainly depends on the life of the battery and the local price of oil and electricity.
Hybrid Charging CarRefers to a car that can be powered by at least two types of onboard stored energy from the following.
Series Hybrid Electric Vehicle (SHEV):A hybrid (electric) vehicle in which the driving force of the vehicle comes from the electric motor only. The structure is characterized by the engine driving the generator to generate electricity, and the electric energy is delivered to the electric motor through the motor controller, which drives the vehicle. In addition, the power battery can also provide electric energy to the electric motor alone to drive the car.
Parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV):A hybrid electric vehicle in which the driving force of the vehicle is supplied by the electric motor and the engine simultaneously or separately. The structure features a parallel drive system that can use the engine or electric motor as the power source alone, or use both the electric motor and engine as the power source to drive the vehicle.
Hybrid Hybrid Electric Vehicle (CHEV):Hybrid (electric) vehicles with both series and parallel drive modes. The structure is characterized by the fact that it can work in series hybrid mode and also in parallel hybrid mode, taking into account the characteristics of both series and parallel types.
(Note: With the development of hybrid electric vehicle technology, the types are not limited to the above, but can also be divided according to other types.)
Those that usually use conventional fuel, along with electric motors, engines to improve low-speed power output and fuel consumption. In the domestic market, the mainstream of hybrid vehicles are gasoline hybrid, while the international market diesel hybrid models are also developing rapidly.
Advantages.1, the use of hybrid power can be determined by the average power required to determine the maximum power of the internal combustion engine, which is in the optimal working conditions of low fuel consumption and low pollution. Need a high-powered internal combustion engine power shortage, the battery to supplement; less load, the surplus power can be generated to recharge the battery, because the internal combustion engine can continue to work, the battery can be constantly charged, so its journey and ordinary cars.
2、Because of the battery, it is very convenient to recover the energy when braking, when going downhill and when idling.
3、In busy urban areas, the internal combustion engine can be turned off and driven by the battery alone to achieve “zero” emissions.
4、With the internal combustion engine, it is very convenient to solve the problems encountered by pure electric vehicles, such as air conditioning, heating, and defrosting, which consume a lot of energy.
5、The existing gas station can be used for refueling without further investment.
6、It can keep the battery in good working condition, without over-charging and over-discharging, prolonging its service life and reducing costs.
Disadvantages.Long-distance high-speed driving basically can not save fuel.
Fuel CellThe fuel cell is used as the power source of the car. The chemical reaction process of fuel cells does not produce harmful products, so fuel cell vehicles are pollution-free vehicles. The energy conversion efficiency of fuel cells is 2~3 times higher than that of internal combustion engines, so fuel cell vehicles are an ideal vehicle in terms of energy utilization and environmental protection.
Individual fuel cells must be combined into fuel cell groups in order to obtain the necessary power to meet the requirements of vehicle use.
Fuel cell technology has made significant progress in recent years. The world’s leading automobile manufacturers, such as DaimlerChrysler, Ford, Toyota and General Motors, have announced plans to bring fuel cell vehicles to market by 2004. At the present time, prototype fuel cell cars are being tested and fuel cell-powered transportation buses are undergoing demonstration projects in several North American cities. Technical challenges remain in the development of fuel cell vehicles, such as integration of fuel cell packs, improving fuel processors for commercial electric vehicles and auxiliary department car manufacturers are working toward integrating components and reducing component costs, and have made significant progress.
Compared with conventional vehicles, fuel cell vehicles have the following advantages.
What Is A Rechargeable Car: System Structure
Electric DriveAn electric vehicle is a vehicle powered by on-board power and driven by an electric motor with wheels that meets all requirements of road traffic and safety regulations. It uses electricity stored in the battery to start. Sometimes 12 or 24 batteries are used in driving the vehicle, and sometimes more are required.
The components of an electric vehicle  include an electric drive and control system, a mechanical system such as a drive force transmission, and a working device to accomplish a given task. The electric drive and control system is the core of an electric vehicle, and is the biggest difference from an internal combustion engine vehicle. The electric drive and control system consists of the drive motor, the power supply and the speed control device of the motor. The other devices of electric vehicles are basically the same as those of internal combustion engine vehicles.
Power SupplyThe power supply provides electrical energy for the drive motor of the electric vehicle, and the motor converts the electrical energy from the power supply into mechanical energy. The most widely used power source is the lead-acid battery, but with the development of electric vehicle technology, the lead-acid battery is gradually replaced by other batteries due to its low energy, slow charging speed and short life. The main power sources under development are sodium-sulfur batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries, lithium batteries, fuel cells, etc. The application of these new power sources opens up a broad prospect for the development of electric vehicles.
Drive MotorThe role of the drive motor is to convert the electrical energy from the power supply into mechanical energy to drive the wheels and working devices through the transmission device or directly. However, DC motor has small power, low efficiency and large maintenance workload due to the existence of commutation spark; with the development of motor control technology, it is bound to be gradually replaced by DC brushless motor (BLDCM), switched reluctance motor (SRM) and AC asynchronous motor, such as casingless disk axial field DC series excitation motor.
Speed ControlThe motor speed control device is set up for the variable speed and direction change of electric vehicles, etc. Its function is to control the voltage or current of the motor and complete the control of the driving torque and rotation direction of the motor.
In the early electric vehicles, the speed control of DC motor was realized by connecting a series resistor or changing the number of turns of the magnetic field coil of the motor. Because the speed regulation is graded, and will produce additional energy consumption or use the motor structure is complicated, now rarely used. The more widely used is thyristor chopper speed control, which controls the motor current by evenly changing the terminal voltage of the motor to realize the stepless speed control of the motor. In the continuous development of electronic power technology, it is also gradually replaced by other power transistor (such as GTO, MOSFET, BTR and IGBT, etc.) chopper speed control device. From the development of technology, along with the application of new drive motors, the speed control of electric vehicles is transformed into the application of DC inverter technology, which will become an inevitable trend.
In the spin-change control of drive motor, DC motor relies on contactor to change the current direction of armature or magnetic field to realize the spin-change of motor, which makes the circuit complicated and less reliable. When an AC asynchronous motor is used, the change of motor rotation only requires changing the phase sequence of the three-phase current of the magnetic field, which simplifies the control circuit. In addition, the use of AC motor and its variable frequency speed control technology makes it easier to control the braking energy recovery of electric vehicles and simpler control circuits.
Transmission DeviceThe role of the electric vehicle transmission device is to transmit the driving torque of the electric motor to the drive shaft of the vehicle. When electric wheel drive is used, most of the components of the transmission device can often be ignored. Because the electric motor can be started with a load, the clutch of a conventional internal combustion engine vehicle is not needed in an electric vehicle. Because the direction of rotation of the drive motor can be changed by circuit control, electric vehicles do not need the reverse gear in the transmission of an internal combustion engine vehicle. When the stepless speed control of the electric motor is used, the transmission of a conventional car can be ignored in an electric car. When using electric wheel drive, electric vehicles can also omit the differential in the transmission system of conventional internal combustion engines.
Running GearThe function of the driving unit is to turn the driving torque of the electric motor into the force on the ground through the wheels and drive the wheels to travel. It is composed of the same components as other cars, including wheels, tires and suspension.
Steering UnitThe steering device is set up to realize the turning of the car and consists of a steering machine, steering wheel, steering mechanism, and steering wheel. The control forces acting on the steering wheel deflect the steering wheel by a certain angle through the steering mechanism and the steering mechanism to realize the steering of the car. Most electric vehicles are front-wheel steering, while electric forklifts used in an industry often adopt rear-wheel steering. There are mechanical steering, hydraulic steering, and hydraulic power steering for electric vehicles.
Braking DeviceThe braking device of electric vehicles, like other vehicles, is set up for slowing down or stopping the vehicle, and usually consists of a brake and its operating device. In electric vehicles, there is usually an electromagnetic brake device, which can use the control circuit of the driving motor to realize the power generation operation of the motor, so that the energy during deceleration and braking can be converted into the current for charging the battery and thus be recycled. Domestic electric vehicles in high-powered passenger vehicles, to provide air braking equipment have Nelly NAILI sliding vane air compressor, mainly compressed air braking method.
Working DeviceThe working device is specially set up for the industrial electric vehicle to complete the operation requirements, such as the lifting device of the electric forklift, door frame, fork, etc. The lifting of forks and the tilting of the door frame are usually done by the hydraulic system driven by an electric motor.
What Is A Rechargeable Car: Charging EquipmentThe driving electric energy of an electric motor comes from an onboard rechargeable battery or other energy storage device. Most the vehicles are driven directly by electric motors, some of them have electric motors in the engine compartment, and some of them directly use the wheels as the rotors of four electric motors, and the difficulty lies in the electric power storage technology.
Electric motor drive electricity, itself does not emit harmful gases that pollute the atmosphere, even if converted to power plant emissions by the electricity consumed, other than sulfur and particulates, other pollutants are significantly reduced.
Electric vehicles can also make full use of the surplus electricity charging in the evening when the electricity consumption is low, so that the power generation equipment can be fully utilized day and night, greatly improving its economic efficiency. It is these advantages that have made the research and application of electric vehicles a “hot spot” in the automotive industry.
Similar to the cell phone charging ICM step wave six-segment charging, with good desulfuration effect, can first activate the battery, and then maintenance type fast charging, with timing, full alarm, computer fast charging, password control, self-identifying voltage, multiple protection, four-way output, and other functions, supporting universal output interface, can be fast charging of all-electric vehicles. Shopping malls, supermarkets, hospitals, parking lots, community entrances, roadside kiosks, and other public places.
In car charging network construction mode, in the charging facilities to promote the process, the urgent need to break through the difficult problem is the charging service network distribution. The electric power sector relies on the existing parking facilities to build micro-grid, distributed and integrated charging stations that can be charged and exchanged according to local conditions, which can avoid the two shortcomings of the charging mode: one is the long charging time and the other is the limited parking environment.
STONE Touch Screen For Car ChargingThe STONE touch screen is constantly upgraded to provide developers with a better experience, creating solutions that make development easier and less time-consuming.
STONE technology offers a wide range of HMI display solutions for industries such as battery-charged cars, charging cars, industrial control, instrumentation, sensing solutions, and monitoring for IoT applications.
