BMW 3: Low-voltage connections

In the low-voltage connector at the Electrical Machine Electronics the following lines and signals are combined:

  • Terminal 30 from the hybrid power distribution box
  • Terminal 30 from the front left power distribution box
  • Terminal 30C (terminal 30 crash signal)
  • Ground
  • FlexRay bus system
  • PT-CAN bus system
  • K-CAN 5 bus system
  • Input and output of the circuit of the high-voltage interlock loop (EME control unit evaluates the signal and initiates a shutdown of the high-voltage system in the event of an interruption to the circuit. Redundancy of battery management electronics (SME) )
  • Actuation of the shutoff valve in the vehicle interior
  • Activating the electrical vacuum pump
  • Evaluation of the rotor position sensor at the electrical machine
  • Evaluation of the temperature sensor at the electrical machine
  • Intelligent battery sensor of auxiliary battery (LIN bus).

The Electrical Machine Electronics is connected to the 12 V vehicle electrical system (terminals 30 and 31) via two separate low-voltage connections and lines with large cross-sections. Via this connection the DC/DC converter in the Electrical Machine Electronics provides the entire 12 V vehicle electrical system with energy. These two lines are connected with the Electrical Machine Electronics via a screw connection.

The following graphic summarizes the low-voltage connections of the Electrical Machine Electronics in the form of a simplified wiring diagram:
