Red Dot Corporation now offers the Sleeping Well Arctic 2000 Plus through its network of warehouse distributors in North America.

The latest-generation Arctic Plus is a battery-powered auxiliary air-conditioning system for commercial trucks, sold as a complete aftermarket installation kit that is said to fit almost any sleeper.

The all-electric A/C system maintains a comfortable cab and sleeper environment while the truck engine is turned off, burning no fuel and producing no emissions. Improvements include an all-12-volt system with twin compressors; upgraded system diagnostics; and a wireless remote control with an ‘Option’ button to reduce compressor speed and extend system operating time and battery life.

Maximum power consumption is 55 amp/hr, a 26% reduction compared to the previous version.

The Arctic Plus 2000 also has a shore power option, using 120V AC to provide indefinite cooling without idling or use of onboard batteries.

It provides up to 6150 Btu/hr of cooling and can maintain a comfortable temperature inside the vehicle for 10 to 12 hours in typical use, says Red Dot. It’s a three-piece system: an evaporator (mounts on the inside of the sleeper); low-profile condenser (mounts on the exterior of the sleeper); and compact compressor unit. Total weight is approximately 80 lb. It’s powered by four dedicated auxiliary Group 31 AGM batteries (not included) with a standard low-voltage cutout.

The Sleeping Well Arctic 2000 Plus is made by Indel B of Italy.
