VMAC shared its latest prototype concept of a gas engine-driven 5-in-1 Multifunction Power System, powered by Honda, at this year’s The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. The company says it plans to release the 5-in-1 system later this year.
The new VMAC Multifunction Power System includes five components: a rotary screw air compressor, generator, welder, battery booster/charger and cold climate kit.
VMAC says it is the first manufacturer to design a multifunction system with Honda’s new iGX800 engine, which uses electronic fuel injection technology to deliver fuel efficient, high-output performance, while the engine’s 9.1:1 compression ratio generates power through rapid combustion without the need for premium fuel.
The 5-in-1 gas Multifunction system allows operators to use one function at a time, or all five functions simultaneously, with real-time load monitoring. The current concept provides up to 40 CFM at 100 PSI of compressed air, 8kW of electric power at 100% duty cycle, up to 250A of welding capability, 300A boosting at 13V, and 100A charging at 12V, 24V, 36V or 48V, the company says.
