Our latest design—the electric compressor—has adopted the scroll design, which makes for a much smoother and quieter ride. It is housed in a much smaller, more efficient package without sacrificing performance. A 24 cc electric scroll compressor produces the equivalent performance as a typical 150 cc piston application at 50% higher efficiency. That translates into more performance using less energy!
The design allows the compressor and AC system to be operational even when the engine is not running—saving fuel and providing operator comfort. The capacity can be controlled internally or externally to match the cooling demand, providing optimum comfort while maintaining energy efficiency.
T/CCI is currently field-testing our electric scroll compressor to ensure it meets and exceeds the cooling and durability requirements. Our compressor utilizes PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) to drive the scroll compressor, delivering less vibration and noise than the more commonly used brushless DC motor.
As field testing is complete, the compressors will start appearing in equipment later this year. 18cc and 24cc compressors in a range of voltage will be available.
