RICHMOND, Va. — TaylorMade Environmental has introduced a new series of air conditioners that will cool or heat the cab without running the truck’s deisel engine.

The integrated cooling and heating systems are specially designed for OE and aftermarket applications.

The system consists of a 14,000 BTU condensing unit mounted in the truck’s undercarriage and a 16,000 BTU ductable cooling/heating unit in the sleeper. The two units are connected by insulated refrigerant tubes. All system functions are managed by the microprocessor control system.

The reverse-cycle heat-pump condensing unit provides integrated heating and cooling. Supplemental electric heat strips in the cooling/heating unit provide additional heating capacity in extremely cold outside temperatures. Alternatively, the system can work with a DC-voltage diesel-fired heater, when installed.

The SMXir digital keypad/display provides user-friendly operation and programming to suit the trucker’s preference for temperature and airflow control. It also provides automatic safety monitoring functions to protect the system against damaging conditions. A remote point-and-click control is also available as an option.

The auxiliary truck air conditioning system is designed to work with various types of AC electrical power sources, including on-board generator sets, inverters and shorepower hookups.
