Vanair has unveiled the latest addition to the EPEQ Electrified Power Equipment line, EPEQ IM Idle Management system. EPEQ is a comprehensive, patent-pending end-to-end system offering the components needed for a green technology system.
The EPEQ Idle Management (EPEQ IM) system offers a solution for fleets. It allows vehicles to be automatically turned off while still powering equipment like air compressors at the jobsite. This is achieved with no emissions and brings reductions in: noise, heat, weight and more. Additionally, the EPEQ Idle Management System features Vanair’s latest HVAC system for cab climate control and telematics.
The new Vanair EPEQ IM system automatically turns off the vehicle’s engine when it is not in use rather than allowing the engine to idle. For commercial fleets this enables:
- Reduced emissions
- Noise reduction
- Increased battery life
- Compliance with regulations
- Equipment monitoring and feedback
- Environmentally-friendly solution
EPEQ IM can be designed to turn the vehicle on or off based on dictated parameters such as run time or battery state of charge using the onboard vehicle battery or to utilize the Vanair ELiMENT LiFePO4 Battery to power: cab heat and air conditioning, emergency lights and strobes, radios, laptops, cameras and AC electrical equipment.
All EPEQ systems are designed to be scalable, allowing for the addition of different power equipment or now, idle management. The Vanair EPEQ system can be paired with Vanair's new telematics package.
“Adding telematics to the EPEQ IM system brings invaluable asset usage information to fleet managers,” said Chip Jones, Vanair strategic manager for the EPEQ Electrified Power Equipment product group. “Reporting how often an air compressor, inverter, crane, or other component is used will allow fleets to pinpoint where to make fleet investments accurately, and what components can be removed to save space and weight.”
“We are excited to introduce EPEQ IM Idle Management, which provides even more options for our customers to operate their equipment with zero emissions and reduced noise, while saving on fuel costs and maintenance,” said Ralph Kokot, Vanair CEO.
