We accelerate e-mobility

We are one: 19.12.2018. FRIWO acquires 100 percent stake in Emerge-Engineering GmbH.

As a system provider, FRIWO offers digitally controllable, precisely matched power supply and drive solutions from a single source.

Technology

We supply all the components required for a modern electric powertrain.

1

Display

+

The weatherproof display is easy to read, even in direct sunlight, and keeps the driver up to date at all times. Due to the open CAN bus interface, other displays can also be integrated into our powertrain. If a vehicle does not require a fixed display, a smartphone equipped with our Emerge EV App can be used instead.

2

Vehicle Control Unit

+

With our VCU, we network the entire vehicle with peripheral components. An Example: In eScooter sharing models, the VCU establishes the online connection to rent the vehicle via an app. Further interfaces are USB, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, GPRS, 3G or 4G, which can be used differently depending on the application.

3

Drive Unit

+

In addition to our intelligent motor control, which is also available separately and can be used with other motors, we offer complete drive units. In this case our motor control is installed directly on the motor. Together they form a perfectly matched unit for the best possible driving experience.

4

Motor Controller

+

Our intelligent motor controller has enjoyed great success in electric scooter sharing and motor sports since 2014. In Europe more than 4000 rental vehicles are on the road that gathered millions of kilometers and a huge amount of experience.

Thanks to two full race saisons in the WEC LMP1 class including the 24h of Le Mans race, the controller has proven its durability and special robustness.

5

Battery

+

Since 2013, our battery technology can be found in the large electric scooter rental fleets in Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Paris and Bordeaux, as well as in a wide range of industrial products. We developed the electronics and the software of the battery management system (BMS) ourselves and can react quickly to any functional requirement. With a UL certification, the BMS can be legally distributed in more than 50 countries worldwide, including the USA.

6

Charger

+

Innovative charging concepts for maximum mobility: Equipped with the experience of almost half a century, FRIWO is your ideal partner in charging technology. Regardless of whether you require highest performance, convection cooling, temperature monitoring, active battery balancing or communication via BUS systems, our comprehensive expertise in the field of charging technology will help you find the perfect solution for your specific needs.
Further information on FRIWO charging technology can be found at www.friwo.com

7

Service Software

+

For long-term driving pleasure, appropriate control and maintenance of a drive system is essential. Our self-developed service software accompanies your vehicle throughout its entire lifetime: from the development phase through series production to fault analysis in the workshop.

Products

Our innovative products stand for highest performance and reliability.

Why choose FRIWO?

We develop complex electrical systems and at the same time assume responsibility for the reliable functioning of the entire system.

1

Perfectly matching components

Our components are specially tailored to the European market and vehicle class L1E. The power requirement of 4kW was at the centre of the development of the drive components. With the combination of Emerge 6000 and the eScooter battery pack, we meet the requirements of this vehicle class under all climatic conditions and at the same time have the best-in-class form factor, which enables our customers to achieve a particularly slim vehicle design.

2

Quality

We measure the quality of our products – with every product. In our production we use automatic test systems to check every product before delivery. We deliver 100% tested products to our customers.

3

We enable growth

With our franchising program, we offer our industrial customers a high degree of independence, especially when it comes to large quantities. We enable our customers to take the production of Emerge printed circuit boards or entire components into their own hands, and have been doing so since 2013. The advantages are obvious. Optimized material procurement, independent production planning and improved logistics through production close to the vehicle assembly line.

Showcases

Here we show happy customers and exciting projects.

Iqento Connect

“With Emerge-Engineering we have found the best partner for the development of our mobile fragrance diffuser electronic. Tobias and his team were very resourceful to design and build the prototypes in a very short amount of time at very competitive costs. Within eight weeks we had high quality samples; all functions including Bluetooth connectivity and the iOS app were working right from the beginning.”

Dr. Dieter Sartorius - Managing Director at Iqento

Pink Mobility

“Pink Mobility enjoys working with Emerge: A technological partner offering up to date solutions with a futuristic approach.”

Ghislain Lestienne - President at Pink Mobility

We are one!

19.12.2018

Ostbevern, December 19, 2018 – The international power supply manufacturer FRIWO AG from Ostbevern has acquired all shares in Emerge-Engineering GmbH, a developer and manufacturer of components for electric drives. A corresponding agreement with the founder and owner of the company was signed today.

Emerge-Engineering’s products are characterized above all by control software that can be individually adapted to customer requirements. With the acquisition, the FRIWO Group is taking the step from product to system supplier. Customers and partners can now be offered a unique complete package of hardware and software, i.e. digitally controllable, precisely matched power supply and drive solutions from a single source.

The product range includes all components required for a modern electric power train: Display and engine control as well as battery, charger and software.

The application possibilities of the acquired technology go far beyond the target market of e-mobility: through the use of individually configurable software, FRIWO will in future be able to equip almost all devices and systems with batteries and electric drives with new features and functions.

Rolf Schwirz, CEO of FRIWO AG, comments: “With Emerge-Engineering GmbH, FRIWO is securing a technological pearl whose know-how will enable us to strengthen almost our entire product portfolio. As a result, we expect the FRIWO Group to achieve significant positive effects in terms of sales growth, earnings and competitiveness in the medium and long term”.

SOL Pocket Rocket at Indigogo

30.10.2018

Manuel and his team have brought their vehicle “Pocket Rocket” to Indigogo and hope for an active participation in the search for interested first customers. For the concept vehicle, an Emerge 6000 engine control was discreetly integrated into the frame tube. A LiIon battery with the Emerge HighPower BMS is also in the frame tube. The two components ensure proper propulsion and driving pleasure.

Tech Demo Powertrain

15.09.2018

The electric go kart is our demo vehicle with which we present and test the complete drive train. The Mach 1 chassis comes from a former rental kart. In comparison to the 5PS combustion engine, we manage with our high-power battery pack a driving time of 30 – 60 minutes and leave the combustion far behind on lap times.

Thanks for 10000 Clients

We congratulate the Stadtwerke Stuttgart!
The Stella community has cracked the 10,000 customer mark in Stuttgart! ???✨Seit August 2016 the electric scooters charged with green electricity drove more than 450,000 kilometres climate-neutrally! Over 30,000 kilograms of climate-damaging CO2 were saved for Stuttgart. Super!

Tech Demo Batterypack

08.08.2018

Today we give you an exclusive insight into our ultra-modern batteries for electric scooters.
A battery pack consists of 168 individual cells that are welded together to form a corepack. Our battery management electronics are located above the core pack and ensure that the battery is monitored and protected. In addition, the battery management communicates with the vehicle’s electrical system to indicate the current state of charge and protect the vehicle from theft.
By the way, such a battery can store 2150 watt hours of energy, which is about 0.25 liters of super fuel, which is absolutely world class, even if it doesn’t sound like it. Thanks to the super-efficiency of our engine control system, an eScooter with this amount of energy can reach a safe 50-60km.
