Regulators are devices which adjust battery voltage. They are generally classified into three types based on the control method used: open types, short types, and phase control types. Shindengen provides regulators with different control methods to suit different applications and functions.
DC/DC converters convert power from the high voltage batteries which serve as the energy source for electrical motors to low voltages. Shindengen utilizes our in-house developed power semiconductors to achieve the development of more compact, lighter, and higher efficiency DC/DC converters.
Power Distribution Units
Power distribution units control the current and voltage output from batteries to each function and monitors to prevent overcurrent. The Electronic Control Unit helps the rider to quickly determine the cause of any machine trouble that may occur during a race.
