Dometic launches fridge unit for small CVs

Dometic has launched an electronic cooling system for temperature-controlled transport – the Dometic Frigo DC.

The unit is designed for the refrigeration of smaller commercial vehicles with tight engine compartments which are increasingly popular due to the need for energy efficient city transport.

It combines compressor and condenser into a single unit that is compact enough not to need roof mounting. It uses a variable power supply to reduce energy consumption.

When the supply voltage is low, the performance of the compressor is automatically reduced to keep the cooling system going without exhausting the vehicle’s battery.

Juan Vargues, president and chief executive, said: “With Frigo DC, Dometic brings its innovative, energy saving and future-proof technology to the temperature-controlled transport industry. Our superior design and technology make us unique in the market and we intend to grow further in the professional vehicle business.”
