Main ComponentThe Small Front Tesla Drive Unit package is one of the most inquired about products we have. It is very similar to the small rear drive unit, with the same motor and inverter in a slightly different package. This drive unit still manages to perform extremely well with a relatively high peak power to weight ratio.
A unique feature of this drive unit is that it does not accept direct torque input command from an accelerator pedal like the other variants of the Tesla drive units. Instead, the 057 Technology Drive Unit Controller reads the accelerator position and converts this to a torque command digitally. This also opens up the ability to control the drive unit digitally through the 057 Technology Controller if your application requires such control.
All Tesla Drive Unit packages offered here are complete systems that include a three phase AC Induction Motor, a High Voltage DC to AC Inverter, and a Differential—all in a single package. They are recycled from Tesla vehicles that have been involved in collisions where the vehicle has been sold at auction as a total loss. Once acquired, they are then refurbished, reprogrammed, and fully tested in-house. 057 Technology has developed proprietary control systems for all variants of the Tesla Drive Units. This controller is included with all Tesla Drive Unit packages purchased from us and is not sold separately. We do not sell controllers for use with Tesla drive units acquired by third parties.
057 Technology's Drive Unit control system has been designed and built from the ground up using high quality automotive grade components. It is not based on low quality or hobbyist hardware (such as the Ardunio) that is in no way suitable for use in a safety-critical system in an automotive environment. When performance is critical, you need a well validated design that is right for the job. No corners are cut when it comes to hardware from 057 Technology. Every Drive Unit controller is fully tested in-house to ensure it meets all specifications so that you can trust that our systems will perform appropriately and safely.
We have put in the time and research needed to ensure that Drive Unit packages from us will perform as well or better than they would have in their original vehicle. We have full control over all variants of the Tesla Drive Unit. We are also not limited by the Drive Unit's build date or software version in any way. Additionally, full features are available—including cruise control capability. No safety or performance compromises have been made with our design. We have kept our products in development for a long time to be sure we were satisfied that everything functioned perfectly and safely. As a result, with our products, you get the full functionality you deserve from these amazing devices.
