Aspen Apu With Interface Module Low ResCarrier Transicold has launched its new Aspen diesel auxiliary power unit (APU) from Carrier Transicold.

Carrier Transicold Product Manager – Alternative Power Ryan Rubly said the Aspen APU from the inside out for high performance, versatility, durability, reliability and ease of use. Thanks to the high-output generator at its core, the Aspen APU delivers cab cooling, heating and electric power, as well as automatic truck battery charging and engine preheating.

“We’ve added an innovative and easy-to-use control interface for drivers along with new APU configuration options for heating and hotel power loads,” said Rubly. “Technicians will appreciate our new CabinTech PC software that enables fast setup, service and troubleshooting of the Aspen APU.”

The Aspen APU is built with marine-grade components and enhanced alloys for strength and corrosion resistance. Automotive-grade, IP67-rated electronics protect against sand, dust and water. A lightweight, corrosion-free injection-molded housing cover provides easy access to the power plant, even behind fairings.

Among the Aspen APU’s key features are an all-new programmable driver interface that makes temperature control as effortless as a home thermostat, with an illuminated dial supported by a backlit digital information display; 12,000 BTU/h of cab cooling from the company that invented modern air conditioning; geater heating versatility via the standard 8,200 BTU/h electric heater and a new option, the 7,000 BTU/h fuel-fired Carrier cabin heater; and high-grade power from its own generator to provide household quality electricity for appliances, computers and more, which can now be augmented with an optional inverter to maintain hotel loads via the truck when it is moving.

Carrier Transicold offers several models of the Aspen APU, including an integrated system that uses coolant exchange for truck engine preheating, a stand-alone unit that powers the tractor’s block heater for engine heating, and a power-only version for work trucks that need auxiliary power but don’t require cab climate control. If equipped with an optional adapter, Aspen APUs can be operated using 115-volt shore power when the truck is parked, eliminating the need to run the APU engine for added fuel savings.For more information about the new Aspen APU, turn to the experts within Carrier Transicold’s North America dealer network.
