TriPac APU system gains
Sep 26, 2009 1:14 PM
Thermo King has added another new feature, a controller with more programmability, to the TriPac hybrid auxiliary idle reduction and temperature management system (APU). The new feature lets users customize their TriPac system even further to match the demands of their business—and it is standard on all new TriPac systems.
With this latest feature, Thermo King has added selectable functions to its controller for the TriPac system that allow the driver or fleet to select the parameters the TriPac system will automatically control after a tractor on/off cycle. The TriPac system can now be programmed to monitor battery and coolant temperature only after the tractor on/off cycle, or if the driver/fleet prefers, the system can also monitor cab temperature and automatically maintain the previously selected set point.
Addition of this feature resulted in part from customer comments, which indicated that some fleet managers wanted to ensure that the APU systems wouldn’t accidentally be left running during down times or over weekends.
