2.What recommended installation and service tools we need prepare? .
  • AC recovery / charging machine – must be R134a COMPLIANT.
  • R134a Leak Detector – must be R134a compliant.
  • Digital Multi-Meter – should be a good quality DVAO meter.
  • Lifting Equipment – capable of lifting storage unit into place on vehicle frame (400 lb. + capacity)
  • 1/2 Heavy-Duty, Low Speed Drill with good quality, sharp drill bits up to 5/8” or RotaBroach Cutters.
  • Mounting Templates – Induded with mounting beackets.
  • Digital Thermometer Tester – Core temperature sensor.
1.How the battery-based idle free electric air conditioner works? .
  • The EcoFleet DC air conditioner units provide the ideal solution for cooling almost any application that has batteries and an appropriate charging system.
  • Normally, when the truck engine is running, a truck's alternator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy to charge the truck's starter batteries and, in turn, power A/C systems.
  • More often than not, the energy produced by the truck's alternator exceeds the amount of energy needed. This energy is usually wasted. The battery-based idle free electric air conditioner captures this energy and converts into cooling air.
1.What’s the advantages by using brushless DC compressor motor? .

The DC compressor and its controller are connected directly to the battery. This permits the unit to operate directly from DC power and eliminates the need for a power inverter. The Ecofleet air conditioners can save power when the environment temperature drops thus less cooling equals less amp draw, which then equates to longer battery life.

2.How long for the running hour after engine switching off?.

For 2kw no idle truck air conditioner, usually work for 4-5 hours. 1kw battery powered air conditioner usually work for 6-7 hours. Moreover, it depend on the storage battery.

What you need to check:

  • 1.Inspect the batteries, check for tight electrical connections and also corrosion at battery terminals.
  • 2.Inspect and clean the air filter regularly to ensure good airflow across the evaporator.
  • 3.Do not block the airflow path between the return air grill and evaporator coil with pillows, blankets, papers or other objects.
  • 4.Check the condensate drain to make sure water is draining properly. If the drain is clogged, clean it.
