Purkeys keeps reefer batteries ready

Purkeys is offering the Solar Dash 03 system, expanding its solar product line-up. The Solar Dash is a supplemental solar charging system that combats parasitic loads on reefer batteries.

While the Solar Dash 01 supplements truck battery charge, the 03 is meant primarily for trailer reefer batteries. However, other special applications, such as dump trailer batteries, can also use this product. It comes with a patent-pending controller and a 20-watt solar panel that is installed on top of the reefer unit or on the roof of the trailer.

The panel is durable enough to function in any weather condition, as long as it is kept clean. It provides enough power to the reefer batteries to counteract parasitic draw, ensuring the batteries are functioning, even after extended periods of disuse.

As solar technology improves, Purkeys will continue to design innovative, affordable, and effective charging solutions for fleets.

For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. The firm looks at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically works to achieve maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage.
