The TE 30 from MITSUBISHI offers fully electric cooling. The advantage: This cooling works in purely electric vehicles and can, of course, also be used in diesel-powered vehicles.
TE 30 operates autonomously, independent of the vehicle 's drive and electrical system. The vehicle engine can be switched off completely – cooling continues reliably.
The fully electric Mitsubishi TE 30 is therefore fully functional during start-stop operation. Traffic light stops with conventional cooling are a particular problem in the start phase of a cooling run. The systems are not yet performing at full capacity, shutting down at longer and repeated traffic light stops in traffic jams can then become a problem.
This topic is particularly relevant during delivery. For insurance reasons, the vehicle must be sealed upon delivery. The previously used engine continuation circuit is no longer permitted for environmental reasons. This in turn means that conventional systems cannot cool on delivery. Autonomous fully electric cooling of the TE 30 continues to operate upon delivery.
Another advantage is that the cooling of the TE 30 is independent of engine power. Directly driven cooling, however, depends on the engine power. During idling and at low speed, these systems provide low cooling power. They therefore often need to be larger in size. However, electrical systems can be smaller in size. This saves procurement costs and operating costs, because electrical systems have higher efficiency.
Another important advantage – especially in light of the stricter regulations of the F-Gas Regulation since 2020: The TE30 generally requires less refrigerant because the compressor is directly connected to the system. Refrigerant hoses that transport refrigerants are not required. Hoses in particular are critical from an environmental point of view. They can leak, but they also lose small amounts of refrigerant to the environment during normal operation. By avoiding hoses, a much smaller amount of refrigerant is required.
And another advantage of the fully electric MITSUBISHI TE 30: There is no need for an annual leak test.
