The ComfortPro electric auxiliary power unit from Carrier Transicold offers quiet, emissions-free truck cab cooling while delivering efficient power usage.
The ComfortPro electric APU is powered by four Group 31 absorbent glass mat batteries that are charged by the truck’s alternator. IT can provide 7,500 Btu/h of air conditioning for up to 11 hours, according to Carrier Transicold.
Carrier Transicold offers several options to expand capabilities for heating, power for hotel loads, shore power connectivity, and truck engine preheating, allowing users to customize the unit to meet individual needs.
When providing cab climate control and other functions, APUs reduce truck engine idling, helping drivers comply with local and regional anti-idling regulations while saving fuel and reducing wear and tear on their truck engines. The emissions-free performance offered by electric APUs in particular can help drivers and fleets in California, where additional exhaust treatment is generally required for diesel-powered APU applications.
