SKIMO A/C UNIT : EFFICIENT

Tests and technical trials

Prior to being released, the SKIMO A/C unit has undergone several tests and trials reproducing its working conditions. At the end of the SKIMO production line, 100% of the units are quality tested to make sure they are working properly.

Test conditions

A/C tests

 

The SNDC test room reproduces the external temperature and sun exposure conditions. The Skimo system was tested at three temperature levels on a 2.5m3 cabin :

  • a 31°C outside temperature for 60 minutes.
  • a 41°C outside temperature for 180 minutes.
  • a 44°C temperature for 60 minutes.

 

The air conditioning unit is switched on only once the temperature is stabilised and homogeneous within the cabin. During the test, the cabin is submitted to an average 800W/m2 solar energy. The air conditioning system is powered by a 12V DC generator.

Data collection method

The data is collected by a data collection system equipped with PT100 thermocouple temperature sensors calibrated to +/- 0.1°C.

Results

SKIMO temperature graph

 

 

With a 31°C external temperature, the temperature inside the cabin rapidly drops under 25°C and stabilises around 18°C.

With a 41°C external temperature, the temperature inside stabilises around 25°C.

 

The electrical current varies according to the external temperature between 65 and 80 amps for a 12V system, and between 35 and 40 amps for a 24V system.
