Following the launch of the revolutionary X-900 unit, Thermo King has announced the introduction of a complete X-Series family. The innovative new X-Series will incorporate a further three units and will be unveiled at the IAA Show in Hanover, Germany, in September.
The three new X-Series units have been introduced especially for bus and coach vehicles from eight to 15 metres in length and will be available across Northern Europe, India and the Middle East. Whilst details will not be announced until the IAA show, the units will be in serial production this year.
Similar to the X-900, the entire X-Series family has been designed to focus on unit weight reduction and will feature innovative green technology enabling a significantly reduced refrigerant charge and minimum impact on the environment.
Key features of the X-Series family include:
• One piece unit
• Significantly shorter dimensions
• Light weight
• CANAIRE technology inside
• Brazed aluminium coils
• Less refrigerant
• Flexible centre air design
• Micro processor expandable controller with options of HMI
Russell Evans, product and marketing manager EMEIA bus and global rail, Thermo King said: “The new X-Series family adds a significant new dimension to the Thermo King product offering. Not only will the new units provide the reliability, performance and first class customer service and after sales support that customers expect from Thermo King products, but they will also deliver exceptional value for money.
“Two important features of this series are the CANAIRE controller and return air design. In the basic configuration the CANAIRE provides a cost effective single zone controller that does not even need a driver panel (Human machine interface – HMI). Expansions nodes can be added to control heating systems, front box and combustion heaters. It also has the ability to communicate using Controller Area Network (CAN).
“The design of the return air allows for a large amount of freedom to position the grill for centre or side return. Given the changes coming, we also believe that refrigerant charge is going to be very important to our customers and the X-Series offers a reduction of approx 50%.”
Russell added: “We are looking forward to the opportunity to showcase the new family of units at the IAA Show, it provides our customers and end-users with an exclusive chance to see the latest market-leading X-Series range up close.”
The new X-Series family will be on display for the first time at the IAA Show, visit the Thermo King stand in Hall 11, stand no. B09.
