RENNINGEN, Germany and MEXICO CITY – Whether electric, hybrid or conventional, at Expo Foro Movilidad 2024 in Mexico City Eberspaecher presents its solutions for comfortable temperatures in buses with all drive types. Digital and cloud-based services expand the portfolio. From February 28 to March 1 visitors can get an insight into the comprehensive range of products for city buses and coaches of various sizes at booth 131 to 134.
The highlight of the global supplier is the new AC135 roof-mounted air-conditioning system which offers a versatile, cost-effective portfolio for all drive types. Overall the platform impresses with its lightweight construction and low consumption rates. The AC135 provides short installation times and a small roof footprint due to the reduced length, in its smallest version only 1.88 m. The parallel high one-piece design combines the advantages of a short parallel unit with side or center return air grilles for easy access and serviceability. Three versions of the AC135C from 25 kW to 30 kW for conventional drives feature four to six blowers for passenger compartments of different sizes. Under the name AC135 AE, two further units with 30 kW and 40 kW performance cool hybrid and battery-electric vehicles. Depending on the requirements, all five variants are available with a brushed or brushless motor. In addition, the all-electric version includes an integrated battery cooling module, a built-in compressor and an inverter.
Cloud-based services and user-friendly control
Moreover, Eberspaecher will be presenting its digital service platform e-connected which complements the global service network. It works via a gateway in the vehicle, which transmits operating data to a cloud and thus enables a large number of data-based solutions. Predictive maintenance for example prevents unexpected failures or long downtimes through early error detection. Systems such as the AC135 can be integrated into the e-connected web application via E‑Control. Maximum user-friendliness and a wide range of customizable functions make E-Control the perfect control system for all air conditioning components in the bus. The in-house developed hardware and software permit highly efficient customer-specific modification or reprogramming.
Broad service network
The Bus & Coach business unit of Eberspaecher is represented with a sales and service location in Mexico City and an assembly site in Monterrey. Especially the site in Monterrey has been optimized to stronger focus on customer service and improved responsiveness to market demands. Its extensive dealer network ensures nationwide support – an advantage for customers and fleet operators looking for convenient and regional access to after-sales service and spare parts.
