Product enhancements on the Direct Drive range

08-03-2017

The good news about Direct Drive products goes on and on!  We are delighted to tell you about some significant improvements we have made on the B-100 and V-series multi-temp ranges.

There’s a newcomer to the B-100 range – the all new B-100 30. Here are some key facts:

  • Adds electric heating option to the current B100 10 (R134a)
  • Same compact dimensions, same high performance
  • Constant electrical cooling and electrical heating capacities
  • Cooling and heating capacities independent from the vehicle engine & ambient temperature
  • Compatible with vehicles equipped with original AC system
  • No drive kit necessary  so no vehicle modification necessary
  • Ideal for home delivery and pharma “last mile” applications.

There’s a software enhancement for all Spectrum models in the V-series range which will bring some important benefits - it’s called Zone Priority:

  • Prioritises either cooling or heating in the chosen compartment
  • Pulldown will be up to 40% faster
  • Highly flexible:  user can choose which compartment to prioritise and do it automatically or manually, or turn off the function.

The September launch of the new V-500 Spectrum ES500 & ES100N has already won significant orders on account of these significant advantages:

  • Narrower evaporator means much more flexibility
  • Ideal for home delivery applications which use very small compartments
  • No loss in total capacity when compared to other V-500 Spectrum configurations.
