Peterbilt’s SmartAir System Enters Production
Peterbilt Motors Company is pleased to announce the production availability of its SmartAirTM anti-idle cooling system. The factory-installed system helps reduce fuel costs and improves driver comfort.
“The SmartAir system is designed to maintain a comfortable rest space in hot climates without idling,” said Bill Kozek, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “This system has exceptional cooling capacity and delivers bottom line savings to customers through reduced fuel consumption.”
From an operator’s perspective, the system is easy to run and has the cooling capacity to keep the sleeper comfortable even in the harshest hot-weather climates. SmartAir has a 7,500 BTU/Hour cooling capacity and can operate up to 10 hours on a single charge.
“The Peterbilt SmartAir system is ideal for medium and long haul operators that demand uncompromising comfort and efficiency,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt director of sales & marketing. “The system keeps the driver comfortable while eliminating the fuel consumption and emissions generated by engine idling. Customers can reduce their carbon footprint and easily comply with anti-idling laws.”
SmartAir’s compact footprint maximizes storage under the bunk while minimizing system weight impacts. SmartAir also features on-board diagnostics, fully automatic temperature control, and an easy to use digital LCD display battery monitoring.
The SmartAir system is available in Peterbilt Models 384, 386, 388, 389, 587 and new 579.
