Thermo King has introduced the E-28 Cargo Heater Kit and the EON Power Pack.

The E-28 protects perishables from cold temperatures without using engine heat, saving fuel and engine wear. It features high-volume heat output, high airflow for even heat distribution, electronically controlled temperature regulation, and a corrosion-resistant painted aluminum enclosure. The kit includes an Espar D8 fuel-fired heater, weatherproof thermostat enclosure, wiring to truck electrical system, and fuel pump with hoses.

The EON Power Pack provides economical and easy-to-install auxiliary power for operating truck lights. Powered by an EON battery, the Power Pack helps avoid dead truck batteries caused by running lights. Items included in the pack are a low-voltage disconnect to maximize battery life, a weatherproof switch with integrated 45-minute timer, and a charging circuit to connect the system to reefer or truck alternator.

Thermo King's new EON battery comes with a full-replacement four-year warranty. This dry cell battery uses Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology to offer, in one box, the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep-cycle as well as provide significant cranking power in one package. The five-second cranking power of the EON is double to triple that of equal-size conventional batteries, even at extremely low temperatures. The EON also has a 200-minute reserve capacity.

The EON lasts five times longer than a wet cell battery. It can help reduce fuel costs because less engine run time is required to recharge the battery when the refrigeration unit is in CYCLE-SENTRY mode.
