All-Electric HVAC Unit Launched

By Mike Osenga29 March 2018

Red Dot Corp. Seattle, Wash., a manufacturer of mobile heating and air conditioning systems, has announced the launch of its first all-electric, heavy-duty HVAC unit.

The model E-6100-0-24P is a turnkey HVAC system, designed to be installed on the roof of a vehicle’s cab. Because the system is self-contained, Red Dot said the operator simply needs to provide power for it to function. The unit’s main features include producing 300 cfm of airflow while achieving 15,000 btu/hr.

“Many industries are making significant shifts toward energy-saving operations to reduce carbon emissions and increase efficiency. Red Dot recognized the need for more all-electric options in the heavy-duty mobile HVAC market,” said Tim Oliphant, Red Dot’s director of engineering.  

Beyond providing a turnkey A/C solution, Red Dot said the E-6100 electric unit offers the added benefits of quick and easy installation; removal of the compressor from the engine compartment; elimination of many potential leak points associated with hose runs; and significant reduction in refrigerant charge.

The 24-volt electric units are available through Red Dot’s global dealer and regional warehousing network. Additionally, a 12-volt system is currently in development to meet a broader range of vehicles and will be available for purchase later this year.
