Taylor Made makes sleepers cool

Taylor Made Environmental
Taylor Made Environmental has developed a new series of auxiliary truck air conditioning systems designed to cool or heat a sleeper without running the engine.

The integrated cooling and heating systems, designed for OE and aftermarket applications,
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 a microprocessor control system.

The reverse-cycle heat-pump condensing unit provides integrated heating and cooling, while 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 programming to suit a driver’s preferences 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.
