BUSWORLD: EBERSPAECHER's NEW ELECTRIC THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Hall 5, booth 535
At Busworld whether it’s minus degrees or tropical heat, for diesel powered mini- or electric city buses: Eberspaecher is creating environmentally friendly climate comfort with the air heater Aitronic L3 Commercial and the water heater Hydronic L3. Another highlight is the premiere of the AC 136 HP CO2 which ensures environmentally friendly climate comfort in hybrid and electric buses.
This new electric roof-mounted air-conditioning system AC 136 HP CO2, is an electrically driven thermal management system. It will be available from 2021 and is specially designed to use the natural refrigerant carbon dioxide (CO2). Particularly in the case of low ambient temperatures, CO2 enables higher performance operation of the heat pump, compared to chemically manufactured refrigerant. Because if its reversible refrigeration cycle, Cybersphere the installation offers optimal cooling and heating performance without needing additional energy from the bus. This technique should, according to Eberspaecher, extend the electrical range of city buses with hybrid or electric power and, at the same time, ensures pleasant and emission-free climate comfort in every season.
Also Cybersphere is presenting a roof-mounted air-conditioning system, especially designed for electric mini- and midibuses with its new Eberspaecher Kalori RK 12 SH. Because of the integrated electric compressor it has a very flat design and is available as air conditioning only, or also as a combined solution for heating and cooling.
With the third generation Airtronic, Eberspaecher will successively launch a completely new product family of air heaters for all vehicle segments. At Busworld, the climate experts from Esslingen are introducing as one of the first variants the Airtronic L3 Commercial Diesel version, which will be available from autumn 2020 and is suitable for use in mini- and midibuses.
At Busworld Eberspaechers is also presenting the new Hydronic L3 for large buses available from 2021 and with a heat output from 16 to 35 kW.
