Webasto Thermo and Comfort North America is partnering with Freightliner to offer its SmarTemp Control on Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution trucks from the production line. The feature will be available from the factory beginning on March 2.
Webasto’s SmarTemp Control is designed to work exclusively with the company’s Air Top 2000 ST bunk air heater. The system delivers temperature control with a rotary dial to let drivers choose the temperature they prefer. The SmarTemp Control will maintain a constant bunk temperature which Webasto says will reduce idling and lead to fuel savings.
The system offers a simple user interface which toggles between menu options with the main dial. The backlit LCD screen shows ambient bunk temperature and the current temperature setting. Drivers can access and adjust heat or ventilation mode, continuous or timed runs, low voltage disconnect thresholds, password protection, and preventative maintenance reminders from the main menu. The menu has three language selections and will display temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
