Feel good in the passenger compartment.
On behalf of comfort –
Vehicle Climate Control

As experts for vehicle climatization as well as display and control systems, we contribute to a relaxed and safe driving experience thanks to our products.

The efficient climate regulation in our control units ensures optimal comfort no matter the external conditions and the various driving situations. Our climate control applications range from the one-zone variant for smaller vehicle classes through two-zone variants for medium-sized to the four-zone variant for high-end and luxury vehicles.

The control algorithm specially developed by our engineers ensures energy-efficient and noise-optimized operation of the climate system. Vehicle passengers can adjust the climate quickly and easily to their individual needs. In addition, our innovative climate sensors ensure the complete measurement of all ambient conditions. This way, we guarantee your personal feel-good climate in the vehicle and pave the way for safe and relaxed travel.

BHTC supplies the climate control for
the latest generation of the Daimler

BHTC’s multifunctional climate control panel graces the interior of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Climate functions are operated by activating the chrome-plated rocker keys including function feedback. The climate functions are shown on the information display at the same time.

Functional design and sophisticated haptics are impressive features of the multi-functional climate control panel that is integrated compactly in the high-grade cockpit.

BMW climate control panel – design
meets functionality

BHTC plays its part in designing the interior of the future.

BHTC developed a state-of-the-art climate control panel combined with a fresh air grille (air outlet nozzles) for the BMW 8 Series and the X5. A high-resolution TFT display positioned in the center puts the finishing touches to the unit.

The intuitive control strip at the bottom with its chrome-plated keys guarantees simple operation. The settings are visualised with a crisp sharpness on the display.

The climate platform:
more than just a vehicle

With the MQB platform (modular cross-brand system) BHTC develops and produces climate control elements and units for a wide range of different vehicles including the VW Golf 7, Seat Leon, Skoda Kodiaq and around 30 other models. The design-specific climate control panel for each model series has a two-zone Climatronic with black panel effect and energy-efficient climate control that supports the automatic start-stop feature. A perfect combination of comfort and CO2 efficiency.

Power electronics

Next to algorithms and sensors, electric auxiliary heaters and blower controllers play a significant role in vehicle climate control. They are among the high-power consumers in the power electronics sector.

This makes it even more important to control them efficiently and intelligently on a top-quality level. Depending on the temperature and air flow requirements, blowers and electric auxiliary heaters can be adapted smoothly to the respective conditions using BHTC power electronics.

Climate sensors:
the sensory organs of climate control

Sensors supply the input signals for controlling the level of climate comfort.

Sensible and robust detection of ambient conditions forms the basis for perfect climate control. The best example of BHTC’s pioneering role is the ITOS® non-ventilated interior temperature sensor which, as the world market leader, the company has been using in series since 2002 and is now in its third generation.

Black-box climate control unit

The black-box as standard for modern climate control in cross-vehicle platforms.

BHTC algorithms stored in the black-box ensure individual climate comfort in your vehicle. Produced millions of times, BHTC black box expertise forms a mainstay within the product portfolio. Customers round the world include General Motors, Renault/Nissan, Daimler and Porsche.
