Kenworth is adding cab temperature monitoring for the T680 and T880 models with its Auto Start and Stop Capability and an optional Espar Airtronic D4 fuel-fired bunk heater.  The Espar bunk heater produces nearly double the BTUs of Espar’s previous generation heater.  “For operators running in cold temperatures, or shut down for a 34-hour reset, our new offerings give a one-two punch in vehicle performance and driver comfort,” said Kevin Baney, Kenworth chief engineer.  “We’ve built our power management system into what we feel is the most comprehensive system in the market.  And, for engine-off, constant heat in the sleeper, the new Espar Airtronic D4 heater has a btu rating up to 13,650, and is available for the Kenworth T680 and T880 specified with either the 76″ or 52” sleeper.  The engine Auto Start And Stop system monitors the starting batteries and the batteries used to power hotel loads.  When the batteries need to be recharged, the system starts the engine to begin battery charging.  The system also monitors oil temperature, starting the engine when the temperature falls below a pre-determined level.
