The Best Solution to Engine Idling.

Idling a tractor engine for in-cab comfort is extremely costly. It increases fuel costs, engine hours and wear. This leads to an increase in service cost and engine maintenance. With Dynasys auxiliary power, you can shut down your engine, maintain your comfort and reduce operating costs.

Externally mounted on the truck rail, Dynasys is protected in its own rugged, weatherproof Stainless Steel enclosure and operates using the truck's fuel supply. This diesel-electric system provides dependable comfort for the driver during down times, reduces emissions and dramatically lowers fuel costs during idle.

Dynasys APU utilizes R134a hermetic-style A/C and electric heating to provide year-round comfort. The 6000W power comes from a belt driven generator (not an inverter which can be harmful to both batteries and alternators). The Dynasys APU is designed for easy servicing utilizing components specifically engineered for heavy-duty applications.
