Mission Critical Electronics has partnered with ZeroRPM to offer the heavy duty trucking market ZeroRPM’s patented technology that "converts" conventional vehicles into hybrid units by eliminating idling.
The system, which automatically shuts down the engine while in park and utilizes lithium-ion batteries to power onboard electronics and HVAC systems, is available through MCE’s Xantrex, Purkeys, and Kussmaul brands.
“The technology ZeroRPM has developed is a unique solution to an age-old problem; it creates a hybrid vehicle with lithium-ion battery technology that integrates seamlessly with a vehicle’s engine and existing electrical system, providing extended engine-off A/C and heating, plus full power to the onboard electronics, including lights, radios and computers, said Kevin Moschetti, MCE chief executive officer in a press release.
For extended times of stationary use of the vehicle, the ZeroRPM System manages the engine start/stop to recharge the batteries as needed.
The benefits of ZeroRPM’s no-idle alternative include reduced emissions, lower fuel consumption, reduced operating costs, extended OEM warranty periods (based on fewer engine hours), improved operator safety and comfort, all while eliminating engine noise from constant idling.
The ZeroRPM System captures all the data associated with the engine off-technology – utilizing Intellimetrics software to give users detailed insight into how the system performs. A secure portal provides customized reports and graphs of fuel savings, emissions reduction and vehicle usage.
