We're offering mobile air-conditioning units, because we manufacture the key component: the SolidSlot™ brushless motor/generator
Temple, PA (PRWEB) March 5, 2008
eCycle announced today plans to offer two air-conditioning units (LVAC) that operate on low voltage (12 - 24VDC) and produce up to 24,000 BTU's. The LVAC offers users powerful and reliable air-conditioning that operates directly from batteries or in conjunction with an auxiliary power unit (APU).
eCycle has been close coupling its line of SolidSlot™ brushless/motor generators to air-conditioning compressors for several years with outstanding results. Most recently, eCycle has been contracted by aerospace companies to assist in providing a high efficiency solution for non-flight critical air-conditioning in very light jets. After preliminary testing, suppliers reported that eCycle's compressor drives performed three times better than any previously tested equipment.
The benefits of the brushless motor/generator for mobile air-conditioning systems are numerous. Both manufacturers and users can realize increased profitability offering systems that are higher in power density and efficiency. Failure and maintenance associated with conventional brushed DC motors are eliminated.
"We're offering mobile air-conditioning units, because we manufacture the key component: the SolidSlot™ brushless motor/generator", said Daniel Sodomsky, eCycle's President and CEO. "We believe eCycle's low voltage air-conditioning unit is a superior product in both design and performance and will set new standards in climate control technology," he added.
Mobile air-conditioners have a significant impact on the Earth's climate and consume more energy than any other auxiliary vehicle equipment. In the United States alone, vehicle air-conditioners consume seven billion gallons of fuel every year, equivalent to over 16 million metric tons of carbon (MMTCE). eCycle's LVAC can help reduce emissions and improve the environment.
The LVAC consists of a SolidSlot brushless motor, compressor, condenser, evaporator, fans and controls in a small sheet metal enclosure. The units require a 12 or 24VDC bank of batteries, auxiliary power unit or solar cells for operation. Unlike other systems that merely switch the compressor on and off, eCycle achieves maximum efficiency by regulating the speed of the motors and compressor. This is a significant advantage, and a departure from traditional methods.
- Powered by SolidSlot brushless motor
- Lightweight, reliable
- Stationary or portable applications
- Low voltage operation - 12 or 24VDC
- Runs on low voltage (battery power). Off grid operation possible with a DC gen-set.
- More powerful and efficient than any product presently on the market
- Less than 50lbs.
- 2 models available: 12VDC - 12000BTU's, 24VDC - 24000BTU's
The LVAC can support a broad range of applications. Some of these include trucking, transit, locomotives, recreational vehicles, back-up systems, off the grid power and marine. Field testing programs are available on a first come first serve basis.
