HVH 100 / HVH 100 Compact / HVH 100 Compact+ / HVH 120: High Voltage Heater for electric vehicles

The 800 V High Voltage Heater (HVH) from Webasto is ideal for commercial electric vehicles such as trucks, busses as well as construction and agricultural machinery. It converts DC power into heat with practically no losses. This also contributes to sustainability. The innovative technology of Webasto works with an extremely thin heating layer that is firmly bonded onto the heat exchanger, and a large contact area for heating the coolant. The HVH therefore achieves extremely fast heat-up times, precise control, and the highest efficiency.


The model range comprises the HVH 100, HVH 100 Compact, HVH 100 Compact+, and HVH 120, all of which are ISO 21434-compliant but differ in terms of voltage, communication and service life. The HVH 100 and HVH 100 Compact offer 12 V and LIN communication, whereas the HVH 100 Compact+ and HVH 120 additionally provide CAN communication and 24 V.
