Imagine an adaptable hybrid system, designed for any make or model of Class 4 and larger trucks. Consider the impact of a system so useful that the applications in service and delivery fleets, road haulers and military are literally endless. This is now possible. This is the G-Force – by Airworks Compressors Corp.
G-Force applies an additional 60 to 120 horsepower (45 to 90 KW) of force to a truck chassis to aid in acceleration. This reduces the load from the combustion engine when the largest fuel use occurs: during stop and go. Regenerative braking recharges the system efficiently. Additionally, the G-Force can be recharged while driving or idling with no plug-in charging required.
The G-Force includes options such as the ability to operate truck environmental systems (HVAC) without running chassis and inverter power generation, essentially acting as an auxiliary power unit (APU).
The ease of adaptability and fitment, environmental support, rapid battery charge capability, reduced heat signature (not required to idle engine to provide cooling, heating, battery charging or power) and reduced fuel consumption make it ideal for a multitude of military applications.
