Non-smart Light Duty / Medium Duty Exhaust Flaps

Exhaust flaps for commercial vehicles must be able to resist higher vibration and pressure loads. Commercial vehicle exhaust flaps are also used for a range of different functions: for example, in thermal management, exhaust gas recirculation, braking assistance, or shift assist in automatic transmissions. When it comes to actuators for exhaust flaps, we differentiate between smart and non-smart options.

Non-smart Light Duty / Medium Duty Exhaust Flaps

Non-smart LD/MD exhaust flaps or back pressure valves (BPV) are available for tube diameters of up to 80 mm with various flange solutions. Due to the high vibration loads, the actuators are decoupled from the flap housing. For this application, we rely on a non-smart DC motor. For electrical connection, you can choose between a range of integrated connectors or pigtail cable solutions. Flap actuation is controlled via a PWM signal.
