A breakthrough technology
The industry-changing E-Drive all-electric technology - pioneered 20 years ago by Carrier Transicold - removes mechanical transmissions found in belt-driven refrigeration systems and transforms engine power into electricity through a generator
Ready for an all-electric future
Our patented E-Drive technology is at the heart of Carrier Transicold’s Vector® trailer refrigeration and Pulsor® van refrigeration systems. Carrier Transicold is now embedding the E-Drive technology into the ECO-DRIVE power modules to energize our complete range of engineless refrigeration units.
E-DRIVE™ Experienced Technology Since 1999
The E-DRIVE all-electric technology removes mechanical transmissions found in belt-driven technology by transforming engine power into electricity. This unique and patented solution delivers superior cold chain performance while reducing CO2 footprint and total cost of ownership :
Save Fuel and Weight with ECO-DRIVE
The ECO-DRIVE is a power module, which is fitted to the side of the truck's chassis. 400 volt / 50 Hz is delivered and constantly available. This pump is connected to the truck engine via a PTO (power take off). The hydraulic system drives a generator located inside the power module delivering a constant 400 volt / 50 Hz. A control is integrated within the hydraulic system, called X-Flow. This innovative system operates independent of the truck’s engine speed and ensures 100 % capacity is always available. The system communicates with the CAN bus of the truck.
