SKIMO - High-performance electric air conditioning unit


Electrical air conditioner

The SKIMO is an electrical air conditioner designed for machines with little free space available inside the cab or in the engine compartment.

High-performance, compact, easy to install and can be adapted to suit most machines. The SKIMO electrical air conditioner does not require a compressor to be fitted on the vehicle engine.

SKIMO is the ideal solution to provide air conditioning in machines and vehicles where the cab size and engine configuration makes it difficult to install a conventional air conditioning system with a compressor driven by an engine belt.

The SKIMO is available in several voltages: 12 V, 24 V, 48 V and 80 V.

The SKIMO has a 2-year warranty

The warranty does not cover damage resulting from incorrect operation of the SKIMO, especially in the following situations :

  • Operation in wet environments
  • Operation in a high salinity environment
  • Operation in a high acidity environment
  • High-pressure washing and/or use of detergents
  • Consumable components or components considered as wear and tear parts

Tests and technical trials

Before its introduction to the market, the SKIMO air conditioner has undergone various tests and trials reproducing its operating conditions to validate its performance. All SKIMO units undergo testing to validate their performance.

Reduced surface area required

The reinforced structure enables SKIMO to be mounted on a rounded roof or even in a "cantilevered” overhang position. In both situations, the maximum overhang distance is 25 cm.

The SNDC test chamber reproduces the outside temperature and sunshine. SKIMO has been tested at 3 temperature levels for a cab volume of 2.5 m3:

  • an outside temperature of 31°C is maintained for 60 minutes
  • an outside temperature of 41°C is maintained for 180 minutes
  • an outside temperature of 44°C is maintained for 60 minutes

The SKIMO air conditioning system only starts up after the temperature inside the test booth chamber has stabilised. Throughout the tests, the cab is exposed to simulated average solar energy of 800W / m2 measured by pyranometer. The air conditioning system is supplied with a 12-volt direct current.

Standards testing

To comply with EC requirements, the SKIMO air conditioner has been tested for electromagnetic compatibility by an approved body (GERAC Electromagnetism - Thales Group). This testing has verified that during operation the SKIMO air conditioner does not emit any electromagnetic interference above the current standards.

Power on 10.5 V 21 V 71 V 20 V 36 V Below these values, a safety device will automatically cut off the system
Overvoltage 18 V 32 V 100 V 32 V 62 V Above these values, a safety device will automatically cut off the system
Overheating In the event of engine overheating, the system will be cut off and restarting will only be permitted once the temperature has returned to normal.
High consumption Abnormal consumption of a an air conditioner in the SKIMO range will activate the automatic safety cut-off device.
Overpressure or under load Air conditioners in the SKIMO range are equipped with a pressure switch which protects the system in the event of abnormally high overload or lack of refrigerant.
Compressor safety The compressor is equipped with a safety valve which protects the system in the event of pressure switch failure.
Machine safety Air conditioners in the SKIMO range are equipped with a safety device which "deactivates" the air conditioner if the cover is opened.
