Carrier Transicold to Exhibit All-Electric eCool Family of Transport Refrigeration Units at ACT Expo

Carrier Transicold will exhibit its eCool™ series of electric transport refrigeration products at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Las Vegas, demonstrating how Carrier can support customers’ sustainability goals and regulatory compliance. Carrier Transicold is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.

Carrier Transicold’s eCool family features transport refrigeration equipment for a range of commercial vehicle types, including on-highway tractors and trailers, medium-duty trucks and delivery vans.

“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.”

The ACT Expo runs May 20-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Carrier Transicold will highlight the following eCool transport refrigeration units (TRUs) at Booth 1420:

  • The Vector eCool™ system combines an all-electric Vector trailer refrigeration unit with a new, next-generation electric motor within the wheel hub assembly. It captures energy from braking and stores it in a high-capacity battery. This regenerated energy can power the Vector refrigeration unit with none of the emissions or noise associated with diesel engines. Vector eCool is North America’s only all-electric refrigerated trailer system that fully regenerates while the unit is in motion. It can be paired with an electric tractor for a fully zero-emission tractor-trailer unit for on-highway applications.
  • 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. Penske Truck Leasing will display a Freightliner eM2 electric box truck with a Supra e11 on a 26-foot refrigerated body, an ideal specification for regional and local distribution fleets, at Booth 2430.
  • 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. It can also use the alternator and battery on conventional engine-driven vehicles, enabling constant temperature control for fresh and frozen items regardless of engine speed. Carrier Transicold will display the Neos 200e on a Ford E-Transit™ All-Electric Van and insulated body supplied by IVS International, Ladson, South Carolina.
  • 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. Motiv Power Systems will showcase its fully integrated Pulsor eCool-equipped zero-emission refrigerated truck at the Carrier Transicold booth.

In addition to the eCool family of TRUs, Carrier Transicold will display a new dedicated power pack for its Supra eCool refrigeration units. The power pack’s advanced lithium-ion batteries and power management system allow the refrigeration unit to operate independently of the truck and can be charged using grid power. The power pack gives fleets a compliance alternative that can meet California’s latest rules on the adoption of zero-emission truck TRUs.

Carrier Transicold will also demonstrate its Lynx™ Fleet telematics platform, which provides remote battery status, temperature monitoring, unit location and other insights into system performance. Lynx Fleet helps analytics-minded fleet managers examine each unit’s most vital conditions in real-time and recognize longer-term performance trends and patterns.
