ACT Expo 2024 starts today in Las Vegas: Sustainable Truck&Van is among the exhibition’s media partners. In Vegas, refrigeration unit specialist Carrier Transicold will exhibit its patented eCool series of electric transport refrigeration products.

More into details, visitors at ACT Expo will have the opportunity to see the Vector eCool system, which combines an all-electric Vector trailer refrigeration unit with a new, next-generation electric motor within the wheel hub assembly. The system captures energy from braking and stores it in a high-capacity battery. Supra eCool single-temperature electric TRUs for 14- to 28-foot straight trucks operate exclusively on battery-electric power. They can use an electric power takeoff (ePTO) on a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) or, unique to California, can run autonomously on an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle with a dedicated set of batteries.

Carrier at ACT Expo 2024: the Neos 200e and Pulsor eCool

Also, the all-electric Neos 200e is designed for delivery vans and other vehicles with cargo areas of up to 200 cubic feet. It can take power directly from battery-electric vehicles, eliminating fuel consumption, emissions and noise associated with engine-driven systems. Finally, the Pulsor eCool is specifically designed to use the high-voltage direct current generated by the batteries powering an electric light- and medium-duty commercial vehicle. Because it does not require an additional battery pack or a voltage converter, Pulsor eCool can be a cost-effective and powerful plug-and-play solution for last-mile delivery applications.

“We’re proud to showcase our comprehensive eCool family of products at ACT Expo and share with customers how to protect perishable cargo,” said Bill Maddox, Director of Product Management, Carrier Transicold. “eCool embodies our leadership in electrification, and we’re looking forward to helping businesses operate more sustainably and in compliance with increasing emission standards.”
