Webasto announced that its Webasto Air Top 2000 ST bunk air heater with SmarTemp control is now an available option for production-line installation on Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution models.
“This is such an exciting OE partnership for us. To have the SmarTemp control offered on a truck that top fleets depend on and recommend is a testimony to the high level of design, engineering and testing we put into the product,” said Webasto Thermo & Comfort President and CEO, Dr. Rolf Haag. “To achieve this less than one year after the launch of the SmarTemp in the aftermarket is a great accomplishment.”
Webasto’s SmarTemp control delivers ultra-precise temperature control with a rotary dial that lets drivers dial-in the temperature they want. The SmarTemp Control maintains constant bunk temperatures which reduces idling and ultimately leads to fuel savings, the company said.
The SmarTemp control is user-friendly, allowing drivers to simply toggle between menu options with a main dial and once in the chosen menu, scroll up or down to the desired selection. The large, backlit LCD screen shows ambient bunk temperature and desired or set temperature. Users can quickly adjust heat or ventilation mode, continuous or timed runs, low voltage disconnect thresholds, password protection and preventative maintenance reminders from the main menu.
The controller offers three language selections and can display in Fahrenheit or Celsius temperature scales.
