BMW 5 Series: Heat management module

The function of the heat management module is similar to that of the heat management module of the B58 engine.

A rotary valve inside the heat management module ensures needs-driven cooling of the various engine components. The opening cross-sections of the various coolant ducts can be opened or closed variably. A position sensor in the electrical actuator of the heat management module forwards the current position of the rotary valve to the Digital Motor Electronics (DME). The exact position of the rotary valve can thus be determined so that it opens or closes a precisely defined cross-section with respect to the various coolant ducts. Adjusting the cross-sections ideally adapts the flow rates of the coolant ducts connected to the heat management module to the engine operating points. To correctly position the rotary valve, the Digital Motor Electronics (DME) require information including the coolant temperature from the coolant temperature sensor, and the material temperature of the cylinder head from the component temperature sensor . Warm-up and cooling of the engine and the supply to ancillary components can be implemented as driven by requirements, thus optimizing consumption.

The following tables provide an overview of the technical data of the heat management modules:
