The S.KOe COOL is equipped with a fully electric cooling unit with integrated power electronics, a battery system and an axle generator, and thus operates emission-free. The electrified vehicle is also extremely quiet, enabling early morning and late evening deliveries in urban areas.
The electrically operated S.CU ep85 cooling unit is designed to cool and heat freight without generating any emissions and offers a cooling output of up to 15,800 W and a heating output 10,500 W. Batteries on the landing gear replace the diesel tank.
The electrified Schmitz Cargobull trailer axle recuperates energy during braking, among other processes, and thus extends the cooling unit’s operating time or reduces the recharging times of the battery via the power grid. This also reduces waiting times at distribution centres. An intelligent battery charging management function ensures that the battery’ charge level remains as high as possible to provide greater reliability when the vehicle is stationary, e.g. in traffic jams. The generator performance of the electrified axis is precisely matched to the requirements of the cooling unit. The system is fully integrated into the Schmitz Cargobull telematics system, enabling the respective system status such as the battery charge level, remaining range, remaining charging time, etc., to be monitored via the telematics portal.
