International mobile power option

International Truck and Engine Corp. offers factory installed APU option

International Truck and Engine Corp. today introduced the International Diamond Logic PowerPack 3 auxiliary power unit to provide customers with a reliable power source built into its trucks. The 3,000-watt AC power system is a factory-installed option on its medium-duty and severe-service vehicles.

“Diamond Logic PowerPack 3 provides heavy-duty mobile power that virtually eliminates the potential for theft as well as the hassle and high costs of maintaining a gas-powered generator,” said Brad Bishop, International’s Business Line manager, Truck Electronics.

The power system costs approximately $1 per kW and reduces wear on the truck by extending the life of its battery, alternator and starter, the OEM said. It is mounted on the truck body to save cargo space and can be used for anything from power tools, lights, test equipment and compressors, to onboard driver amenities such as TVs and refrigerators.
