Commercial Mobile Air Conditioning Systems: 12-24 VDC Driveadmin
Warmer months in Canada are just around the corner and for heavy-duty industries like construction, mining, and oil and gas, this means planning ahead to keep workers comfortable in the heat. Mobile equipment air conditioning units are crucial for preventing heat stroke and for the overall safety of equipment operators. Whether you’re in Alberta or Ontario, Canada’s weather is unpredictable and requires planning ahead. And with long hours under the sun, you need a reliable and durable air conditioning system that won’t break down and cause unexpected downtime.
At Polar Mobility, our units are engineered to run for long service intervals and are designed to handle tough environments. Here’s what a 12-24 VDC air conditioning system can do for your operations.
What is a 12-24 VDC air conditioning system?
A 12-24 VDC air conditioning system is an ultra-compact unit that’s ideal for light to medium-duty equipment. Our units are lightweight with a sleek design that can be mounted vertically or horizontally, depending on the equipment’s cab layout. They are designed to be unobtrusive and easy to install with a variety of optional features such as an air filter pressurization system that keeps the cab’s air quality clean, a remote condenser, water pump, hydraulic driven compressor, and more.
The term ‘VDC’ stands for ‘volts direct current’, which means the voltage is constant compared to an alternating current. A 12-24 constant voltage produces consistent, uninterrupted power to keep the worksite running smoothly.
12-24 VDC air conditioning systems are ideal for:
- Skid steers
- Service vehicles
- Agricultural equipment
The benefits of a 12-24 VDC air-conditioning unit
A compact 12-24 VDC air conditioning system is excellent for a variety of work vehicles and equipment. Some of the advantages of this versatile unit include:
- Low noise levels when the unit is on, a great feature for worker comfort
- Ultra-compact design to save room in small operator cabs
- Can be roof-mounted
- Efficient VDC power combined with low consumption and high output
- Saves energy and no power surge with a soft start
- Easy installation and low maintenance
- Heavy-duty stainless steel construction to handle tough working environments
Which mobile equipment air conditioning system is right for your worksite
While a 12-24 VDC drive unit is a great choice, keep in mind that there are other options for specific operations. If you choose a compact unit for large, heavy-duty equipment, you run the risk of the system not being able to cool the cab sufficiently which compromises worker safety. If you choose a high-voltage unit for a small cab, you run the risk of consuming excessive energy which can lead to unnecessary costs.
