At CONEXPO-CON/AGG, John Deere will introduce novel concept batteries and electronics solutions.

New charging methods, electrical components, and Kreisel batteries
As the off-highway industry continues to accept electrification and the many advantages it provides, John Deere is expanding its battery portfolio to include new electronic hardware solutions and more modular power choices. From March 14 to March 18 in Las Vegas, Nevada, these new innovations will be on exhibit in the John Deere booth (West Hall, Booth W40844) at CONEXPO-CON/AGG.

“We recognize the industry’s obvious and expanding need for battery and charging options. In order to innovate for our customers and market the most robust and long-lasting goods, we are making use of our top-notch engineering knowledge, according to Jennifer Preston, global director of John Deere Electric Power. “Together with Kreisel, we are expanding our battery portfolio to include even more versatile, scalable power to meet a wider range of application needs as we continue to work toward a future with zero-emissions propulsion and pursue our goal of demonstrating viable low- and near-zero-carbon power solutions by 2026.”

The future of John Deere will be electrified​

John Deere is investing significant resources in cutting-edge battery and charging technologies for off-highway equipment uses as more of the industry looks to go electric. John Deere and Kreisel Electric (Kreisel) are collaborating to increase Kreisel’s manufacturing capacity and hasten the advancement of the business’ cutting-edge battery technology.

Three new concept Kreisel batteries, including 20 kWh and 40 kWh power options, will be on exhibit at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in addition to the 63 kWh Kreisel KBP63 battery that was showcased at bauma 2022. These new models make use of the scalable, modular design and patented immersion cooling technology of the battery technology provider, providing industrial and marine customers with greater packaging freedom. The KBP63 continues to be a great power option for a significant number of off-highway applications, but with the addition of 20 kWh and 40 kWh power options, John Deere​ and Kreisel can offer OEMs even more versatility for unique application packaging and enable smaller vehicles to take advantage of the high performance of Kreisel batteries.

Creating a dependable charging ecosystem that can be scaled and sized to meet operating circumstances on various job sites is just as crucial as expanding a diverse battery portfolio. Similar to how batteries are used, different market segments and applications will have different charging needs. These needs can vary from the need for both stationary and mobile options to flexible ranges and charge times. To demonstrate the company’s ongoing commitment to providing adaptable charging solutions to market, John Deere will have a number of concept charging platforms on exhibit in both its indoor (West Hall, Booth W40844) and outdoor (Silver Lot, Booth S5020) booths.

“John Deere sees the critical role and opportunity that charging infrastructure plays in the successful development and industry adoption of battery power. We are working to develop complete charging solutions our customers can invest in and dependably operate in the rugged environments they work in day in and day out,” said Pierre Guyot, senior vice president of John Deere​ Power Systems. We prioritize the development of a strong charging ecosystem and battery portfolio that can support and maintain the long-term adoption of electrification across a wide range of equipment sizes and uses. As a result, we will continue to be a leader in the evolving off-highway electrification space.

robust, trustworthy electronic alternatives

As an OEM, John Deere understands how to design electric drivetrain systems so that they function effectively and dependably in challenging working conditions. John Deere​ has leveraged its deep understanding of off-road equipment to design a family of rugged electronics hardware that enables seamless connection to help deliver a complete system solution for OEM equipment — from integrated displays and telematics that present and collect critical information to power electronics that support hybrid and battery electric equipment.

A Gb Ethernet Switch is the most recent addition to the John Deere electronics array. This module handles the real-time distribution of control data, high-quality images, and more to various system devices. Visitors to CONEXPO-CON/AGG can examine John Deere electronics hardware that has been shown to work well with smart machinery.

From March 14 to March 18, at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas, stop by the John Deere booth (West Hall, Booth W40844) to learn more about their powertrain and electronic options.
