The V-520 vehicle-powered temperature control system for small trucks is available now for ordering through Thermo King dealers across North America. It’s suitable for box sizes from 10 to 18 ft and is exempt from the CARB TRU regulation.

It features the new Direct Smart Reefer (DSR) controller, called "the latest in microprocessor control for direct-drive systems." Features of the DSR controller include: continuous monitoring of the load; automatic startup; three standard hour meters; easy-to-understand alarm codes for quick diagnostics and reduced costs; maintenance reminders; upgradeable software; battery protection; clutch delay timer; and new 12- and 24-volt options.

Other features of the V-520 include SmartPower electric standby to save fuel and cut emissions, "superior" capacity and airflow, and what’s claimed to be "outstanding" pull-down capability. There are six models in the V-520 line, including Spectrum multi-temperature units as well as a full range of optional features and equipment.
