Unique technology

The DC Airco 37 cc rotary compressor is extremely efficient and powerful.
The Air Conditioner is specially designed to work with the compressor.
All DC Airco units have a soft start. No excessive startup currents.
This unique technology has been developed and tested in Europe.
DC Airco units are prefilled with R134a coolant which meets all ozone protection requirements.

  • The benefits of DCAirco products

    DC Airco's products supplied in 12v 24v 48v 74v 110v 230v 400v DC AC operate trouble free in hard environments ranging from hot and dirty mining applications to hot and dusty deserts. These DC powered direct current air conditioners are robust and reliable, ideal for use on vibrating vehicles.

    Besides providing an comfortable, safe and healthy work environment for the operator, there are more benefits that our products offer: 

    Decrease stock of different HVAC spare parts
    This way, companies can reduce maintaining large stock of expensive air conditioning parts for every operating machine and vehicle, by using one type of unit. Our unit will fit on almost all movers, drills, cranes, waste trucks and forklifts. Start decreasing your stock of different spare parts and transport expenses.

    Minimise expensive down time
    Every air conditioner comes with a simple diagnostics interface for maintenance engineers to help support them with system health and possible error code information. This way it is easy and simple to help minimise down time when maintenance is needed

    If maintenance is unable to be carried outdue to safety concerns

    Just by disconnecting 2 power cables and 4 mounting bolts it is easy to swap one rooftop air conditioning unit with another one within 1 hour. So operators can resume their job quickly and will give engineers the time to complete checking and do repairs in the workshop without time pressure and in a safe environment.


  • Comparison AC vs DC Air conditioner



    DC Airco air conditioners:

    -Bigger Investment, but has a much shorter period of the return investment.
    -The seasonal energy efficiency ratio is extremely higher.
    -Maintaining its high efficiency in a high ambient .

    AC air conditioners:

    -Smaller Investment, but has a much longer period of the return investment.
    -The seasonal energy efficiency ratio is extremely lower.
    -Unable to maintain its high efficiency in a high ambient.
