Red Dot to distribute ClimaCab system
Mar 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Red Dot Corp. announced that Glacier Bay Inc.'s ClimaCab all-electric climate-control system for commercial vehicles is available to its network of warehouse distributors.
ClimaCab is a battery-powered HVAC system that combines the savings and environmental benefits of an electric system with the cooling performance of a diesel auxiliary power unit. It provides 10 consecutive hours of 8,000 Btus/hour of cab and sleeper cooling, and quietly and efficiently generates heat from a radiant panel.
The system installs quickly and cleanly with no ducting. It has five components: a Power Management Module that optimizes battery charge while minimizing power drain; an evaporator that varies fan speed; a condenser; a touch-screen control; and a battery bank mounting platform for four deep-cycle AGM batteries. The system recharges batteries during normal truck operation and is compatible with 135-amp alternators, providing comfort in harsh environments. Together, the components weigh 193 pounds, not including batteries.
