Impco's ClearSky battery-operated air conditioning technology is designed to run quiet to help drivers rest, the company says.
KITCHENER, Ont. — Impco Technologies is looking to keep drivers cool and the air clean with its battery-powered air conditioning technology called ClearSky.
ClearSky provides in-cab air conditioning without engine idling, which, in addition to its environmental benefits, should help drivers reap the benefits of decreased fuel and engine maintenance, the company says. Officials say ClearSky is both CARB and EPA compliant.
To use ClearSky, the driver selects the desired temperature using a digital thermostat, and the technology “takes care of the rest,” according to officials. While on the road, the tractor’s alternator recharges ClearSky’s four dedicated batteries.
ClearSky provides up to eight hours (at 6,150 BTU) of air conditioning capacity, and offers both shore power and hotel power options.
