Horton Inc. says its VMaster and Stratis Di Viscous Fan Drive and Controller systems offer an economical choice for customers who seek the flexibility of variable speed along with optimal engine cooling, reduced fuel consumption, decreased noise and more available horsepower for auxiliary components.

The J1939-compatible controller is designed to combine with Horton’s VMaster or Stratis Viscous Fan Drive to complete the plug-and-play Di systems. VMaster and Stratis Di Viscous Fan Drives and Controller are compatible with many Horton and competitive 20- to 44-inch-diameter plastic, metal and composite fans, according to the company.

The systems — designed to offer precision fan control and improved cooling performance — are suited for off-highway equipment, vehicles and buses, including skid steers, truck cranes, cement mixers, refuse trucks, medium-duty trucks, agricultural equipment and generators.
