TCCI continues to build on range of electric options from 24V to 850V compressors serving variety of customer needs across the globe.

DECATUR, IL – TCCI Manufacturing, a world leader in compressor technology including reciprocating, swash plate, wobble plate, and variable compressor designs, is introducing a range of electric compressors for the heavy duty and mass transport markets, further building out a robust product portfolio that aggressively expands electric and variable compressor capabilities to meet the fast-growing industry demand globally.

TCCI’s new compressors include high-voltage electric designs spanning 15cc/24V to 120cc/850V and 2 kW to 30 kW. The new 24V products are designed primarily to cool the interior of a cabin when a vehicle’s engine is turned off. This is a feature especially important in the European market where regulations do not allow truck engines to run overnight.

The high-voltage 400V to 850V products are designed to serve vehicles propelled by an electric motor in full capacity including heavy-duty trucks, buses, transport refrigeration vehicles and automotive applications.

“TCCI is constantly developing and adapting new products to meet the unique needs of our customers, ensuring compliance with evolving emissions control and safety regulations,” said Erik Huyghe, Director of Advanced Engineering. “While other OEMs are trying to keep their product portfolios as slim as possible, we are willing to take on lower volumes thanks to our production line, which is designed to be very flexible and quickly produce different models on the same line.”

The 120cc/850V compressor is an especially unique product, focused on a segment of the market that is currently unserved. The product is designed to provide battery cooling and a/c for the heavy-duty trucking, bus and railway sectors. TCCI’s compressor is designed to handle overvoltage situations.

“Our value proposition to customers in a range of markets around the world is versatility, efficiency, and the ability to customize designs and solutions based on need,” said TCCI President Richard Demirjian. “Our low voltage signals can handle both 12v and 24v within the same unit, allowing OEMs that have both European and North American applications to effortlessly maintain their development programs even when voltages vary by market.”

The 24V model will be available in spring of 2021 and the larger 850V will hit the market this fall. TCCI is planning for a range of higher displacement compressors, with specific details to be released later this year including compressors for the automotive market.
