The trend toward electromobility is increasing demand for innovative heating concepts. Electric heaters generate the heat to temper the passenger compartment and provide comfort. The heart of these heaters comes from Eberspächer catem. The core technology for heating electric and hybrid vehicles are our PTC elements (Positive Temperature Coefficient).
E-mobility: PTC elements for high-voltage heaters
Our PTC elements (Positive Temperature Coefficient) are the core technology for heating electric and hybrid vehicles. The properties of these ceramic elements help to turn electricity into pleasant heat. They are powerful and reliably deliver high heating power at low surface temperatures of the heating elements. As a thermo specialist, we offer solutions for particularly high voltages, as are typical in electric and hybrid vehicles.
In 2018, the global market leader in high-voltage heaters produced the millionth water heater for hybrid and electric vehicles. We expanded our production and development capacities to meet rising demand.
The future of e-mobility
In 2020, our new plant in Hermsdorf went into operation. Here, 80 employees work on the future of e-mobility every day. Our team focuses on development close to production and implements near-series testing of the latest product generations. We offer exciting future prospects for committed and qualified physicists or materials technology engineers.
What would the world be missing if our company did not exist?
The world would be missing pioneering technologies for exhaust technology, vehicle heaters, air-conditioning systems for buses and special vehicles, and in vehicle electronics. The trend toward electromobility is increasing the demand for innovative heating concepts for alternatively powered vehicles. Here, electric heaters generate the heat to temper the passenger cell and ensure the usual comfort even at low outside temperatures. The heart of this technology comes from Hermsdorf, where Eberspächer catem manufactures PTC elements. With their properties, the ceramic elements help to turn electricity into pleasant heat. In this way, we at Eberspächer catem are making a significant contribution to the mobility of tomorrow."
What constitutes the CAMPUS feeling for us?
"Innovation attracts - family binds." As a global high-tech company and as a family business, Eberspächer combines the best of two worlds: innovative, top-class products and the bonding power of a family-run company.
What are we proud of?
The Eberspächer Group is one of the leading international system developers and suppliers to the automotive industry. Our products and services in the fields of exhaust technology, vehicle air conditioning and vehicle electronics contribute to environmental protection, safety and comfort in vehicles. Eberspächer catem Hermsdorf GmbH & Co. KG is a subsidiary of the Eberspächer Group. Since 2010, the Eberspächer catem product portfolio has also included high-voltage PTC heaters. The high-performance PTC elements (Positive Temperature Coefficient, German: Kaltleiter) deliver high heating power at low surface temperatures of the heating elements, are extremely reliable and intrinsically safe. The properties of the ceramic elements help turn electricity into comfortable heat. In order to meet the increasing demand for the PTC ceramics, Eberspächer is expanding its production and development capacities. In May 2019, for example, the company moved into a new production plant in the Hermsdorf-Ost industrial park. There, the approximately 100 employees will intensify production-related development in the future and realize near-series testing of the latest generations. Innovation is part of the tradition at Eberspächer. This has made the former Eberspächer craftsman's business into a global company and leading supplier to the global automotive industry.
What career and development opportunities do we offer?
Eberspächer invests an above-average amount in personnel development. In order to bring fresh ideas forward, talents, independent thinking and self-responsible action are specifically promoted.At Eberspächer we promote careers with freedom of movement. Whether it's an internship, an apprenticeship, a student trainee position or a thesis, you can get involved with us. If there's one thing we like to shake, it's hands - not heads. That's the only way we make progress. Regardless of your career level - every talent counts with us.
