LOUISVILLE, KY. Glacier Bay’s ClimaCab auxiliary power unit (APU) will utilize the power of Trojan Battery Co.’s absorbed glass mat (AGM) OverDrive AGM 31 deep cycle battery in its units.

ClimaCab is an all-electric no-idle climate control system for heavy-duty trucks, providing air conditioning and heating during driver rest periods without the need to idle the engine.

“We are both proud and excited about our partnership with Trojan Battery Company,” said Charles Fetter, ClimaCab gm. “Their OverDrive AGM 31 battery is designed specifically for the ClimaCab application. Customers will reap the rewards of an extremely efficient idle-reduction technology package.”

ClimaCab used a Power Management Module (PMM) to maximize battery charging, battery life and system run time. The PMM matches the charging system to the battery’s factory-set profile, resulting in higher battery efficiency, longer duty cycles, and reduced operator costs, ClimaCab said.

The OverDrive AGM 31 is a deep cycle, sealed battery built specifically for idle-reduction technology.
