Idle Free Systems: Strengthens North American partner network with three new dealer agreements

Madison, WI – – Idle Free Systems Inc. has signed three new dealer agreements further enhancing its auxiliary power unit channel partner network across North America.



Utility Trailer Sales of Idaho with locations in Boise and Idaho Falls; Pacific Transport Refrigeration in Bakersfield, CA; and Stellar Truck and Trailer in Mason City, IA are now authorized Idle Free electric APU dealers. The agreements make it easier for truck fleets to receive sales, installation and support for Idle Free’s All-Electric APU, the most complete idle elimination system on the market today and the only electric APU capable of meeting drivers’ needs without relying on the truck’s starter batteries.



“These new dealers are a valuable addition to our network in North America,” said Robert Hopton, CEO, Idle Free System. “With the addition of these dealers fleets can now benefit from greater access to our market leading line of idle elimination products.”



With an uptick in demand for electric anti-idling devices for the trucking industry, the agreements with Utility Trailer Sales, Pacific Transport Refrigeration, and Stellar Truck and Trailer signals Idle Free’s intent to provide drivers and fleet operators throughout North America with even greater access to, and support for, a flexible, cost-effective alternative to discretionary idling without compromising performance, cost savings, or driver comfort while reducing emissions for a cleaner environment.



Unique to the Idle Free electric APUs is its ability to be powered three ways:



An independent battery bank consisting of four AGM batteries captures energy produced by the engine’s alternator and stores it and, when the truck’s engine is off, converts the stored energy into 120 volt electricity using a pure sine wave inverter;



Shorepower, which is standard on every Idle Free system, allows drivers unlimited runtime when plugged into all-weather electrical outlets being deployed across North America; and



Reefer Link™, Idle Free’s proprietary, patented technology powered by the reefer. Idle Free is the only APU on the market that can be powered by the reefer. When connected drivers will have unlimited runtime for the system.



Additionally, Idle Free APUs use a coolant heater as a fully integrated component of the system providing heat for both the cab / bunk as well as the engine block.



New to the Idle Free product suite is a heat system for work trucks. Designed for the day cab or work truck market, the Idle Free Work Truck No Idle Heat System™ provides up to eight hours of interior cab heat with the truck engine turned off. Unnecessary workday idling is eliminated. The Work Truck No Idle Heat System uses a coolant heater to provide engine heat and interior cab heat. Additionally the system provides 12-volt electrical power for work truck functions, such as running lights or communication systems. An Engine Start Module (ESM), similar to an ultracapacitor, is fully integrated into the system and can start the truck even if the truck batteries are dead.



A leader in the manufacture of electric auxiliary power units, Idle Free has been supporting fleets for over eleven years.
