This company will be familiar to most people, since the AEG Aktiengesellschaft has been one of the world's largest electronic companies, especially known for high-quality household appliances such as washing machines, vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, cooking appliances, etc. "AEG" stands for "Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft". The company was founded in Berlin in 1883 under the name "Deutsche-Edison-Gesellschaft für angewandte Elektricität".
In 1982, the company had to declare insolvency, but was then taken over by the Daimler-Benz AG. Finally, the AEG brand was sold to the Swedish Electrolux group. Electrolux in turn licensed the use of the AEG brand name, so that today various companies sell electrical goods under the AEG brand. The product range is therefore much larger than in earlier times - it no longer only includes household appliances, but also car radios, music systems, telephones, smartphones, various drive systems, etc.
2 AEG E Bike engines
In 2012, the first two AEG E Bike drive systems were presented at the EUROBIKE trade fair; the systems consisted of a mid-mounted-engine and a rear-wheel drive system. Initially, success was limited. But the AEG 2019 drive systems were a real improvement. The AEG range now includes at least four E Bike mid-mounted-engines and three front and rear engines. All these drives are used exclusively in Prophete E Bikes - there is a very close cooperation between Prophete and AEG, in which the common know-how is used to develop particularly high-quality E Bikes. The Prophete "Drive System 2020" is completely new and has even been awarded with the German Design Award 2019. The new system consists of a unit of motor and battery, which can be perfectly integrated into the frame of Prophete E Bikes.
The AEG mid-mounted motors in particular are considered to be real power packs, but at the same time they are extremely light and compact. In addition, they are almost noiseless. Meanwhile the AEG E Bike mid-engines are offered in five different variants for riders with different requirements, namely AEG ComfortDrive, AEG ComfortDrive C, AEG EcoDrive, AEG EcoDrive C & AEG SportDrive. All these drive systems are built into Prophete E Bikes.
3 Is it possible to optimize / tune AEG E Bike engines
Meanwhile, yes. Until recently, there were no tuning options worth mentioning for E Bikes with AEG drive systems, but now at least one tuning kit is available, with which you can remove the speed limitation of AEG engines.
4 Which tuning tools are available for AEG E Bike drive systems?
A.1 MBIQ-S tuning sensor für Yamaha / Giant / AEG
A microcontroller-based tuning tool to remove the speed limit of E-Bike motors. Since it is a sensor based tuning solution, the installation of the tool is very easy: Just replace the original sensor of your E-Bike with the MBIQ-S tuning sensor and you can finally use the full potential of your E-Bike. The tuning sensor is maintenance-free and does not need an extra battery. You have the option to set three different operating modes. No correct speed display when the tuning is active. Compatible with the following E-Bike drive systems: Yamaha (PW / PW-SE / PW-X), Giant (SyncDrive Life / SyncDrive Sport / SyncDrive Pro), AEG (Drive)...and other systems, provided they are equipped with a suitable plug.
A.2 MBIQ-CC 2 (Universal)
A universal tuning solution which is compatible with E-Bike drives from different manufacturers (also Bosch Gen4). The tool lifts the 25 km/h speed limit completely. Customer programmable and "Anti-Tuning" ready. In contrast to the normal MBIQ-CC, the MBIQ-CC 2 can also be activated by an external switch (not included) or by the light signal (only for 2-wire sensors). From a speed of approx. 25 km/h the correct speed is no longer displayed when the tuning is active. For installation, the tool must be integrated into the existing sensor cable, which works easily via push-in clamp. Compatible with various E-Bike motors with 2- or 3-wire speed sensors: Bosch (Active, Performance, CX), Shimano Steps (E6xxx, E7xxx, E8xxx), Panasonic (X0, Flyer), Brose (Brose Drive S), Bafang (BBS-xxx), Yamaha (PW-xx), Fazua, AEG, etc.
A.3 MBIQ-S Tuning Sensor for AEG / Bafang / Prophete
This tuning tool lifts the 25 km/h speed limit of E-Bikes completely. Use the true power of your drive system and ride much faster with full engine support. The tool works microcontroller-based and comes in the form of a ready-to-use sensor solution. For installation, the MBIQ-S simply needs to be exchanged with the E-Bike´s original sensor. This tool can be programmed by means of certain wheel movements during startup and can thus be switched on and off. The MBIQ-S does not need an extra battery. When the tuning is active, no correct speed values are displayed from approx. 22 km/h onwards. Compatible with E-Bikes with AEG / Bafang mid-mounted engines (Prophete).
