Enertek Solutions — a Portland, Ore.-based research and development company specializing in anti-idling technology — on Wednesday, Sept. 3, announced its release of a commercial auxiliary power system utilizing a series of advanced lithium-ion battery modules for the heavy-duty transportation industry.
Named the Infini-Gen A.P.S., the all-electric system is configurable to the kilowatt hours needed for the end-user, according to the company. Using prismatic cells with a built-in controller area network, black-box logistics and an internal thermal control battery management system, the system is designed to be a plug-and-play system. Installation usually takes as little as six hours on a standard Class 8 truck, Enertek says.
The system is designed to provide a source of cab heating, cooling and hotel-load power, leveraging battery technology originally developed for the military. Additionally, the all-electric battery systems do not require a diesel particulate filter.
