Electric Power Take-Off Interface Requirements for Commercial Vehicles
This SAE Standard document covers the general requirements for conductive power transfer of high voltage DC power between OEM commercial truck chassis electrical systems and electrically powered body accessory equipment. The OEM chassis can have an EV drive train or be a hybrid chassis with or without a connection for traditional mechanical PTO. The chassis can include use of range extension systems. Voltage levels are defined as greater than 60VDC and include typical EV chassis voltage ranges up to and including 1000VDC. It also covers the functional requirements for the connection systems, body builder communication modes including diagnostics, operational modes, system interlocks and isolation management..
