SmarTemp Control available as factory-installed option on two Freightliner models

Webasto SmarTemp Control available as Freightliner factory-installed option

Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America Inc. announced that, beginning March 2, Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution trucks can roll off of the production line equipped with Webasto’s digital SmarTemp Control.

Designed to work exclusively with Webasto’s Air Top 2000 ST bunk air heater, Webasto’s SmarTemp Control delivers precise temperature control with a rotary dial that lets drivers dial-in the temperature they want while the device does the rest. The SmarTemp Control maintains constant bunk temperatures, which reduces idling and leads to fuel savings, according to the company.

“This is such an exciting OE partnership for us,” said Rolf Haag, president and chief executive officer of Webasto Thermo & Comfort. “To have the SmarTemp Control offered on a truck that top fleets depend on and recommend is a testimony to the high level of design, engineering and testing we put into the product. To achieve this less than one year after the launch of the SmarTemp in the aftermarket is a great accomplishment.”

The intelligent, effective and appealing user interface complements the sleek and ergonomic style of the Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution models, said Webasto.
The SmarTemp Control is user-friendly; The large, backlit LCD screen shows ambient bunk temperature and desired or “set” temperature. Users can adjust heat or ventilation mode, continuous or timed runs, low voltage disconnect thresholds, password protection and preventative maintenance reminders from the main menu. The controller offers three language selections and can display in Fahrenheit or Celsius temperature scales.
