The MSSI 11 is a 11kW dual evaporator air-conditioning unit. The evaporator is purposely designed to be mounted inside the vehicle below the driver and co-driver’s seat frame.
The evaporator unit supplies cool air into ducting, which is connected on the left and right side of the seats. The evaporator unit contains four double scroll blowers and two evaporator cores.
A choice of two condenser configurations are available with this air-conditioning system: a condenser pack that is mounted inside the engine bay that utilises of the engine cooling fan and a second option of an enclosed condenser unit, which is mounted on the outside of the vehicle containing condenser heat exchanger cores and cooling fans.
The aircon control is done via the small-and-medium enterprises (SME) developed, multi application controller (MAC), which can interface with the vehicle control for a total integrated system solution. Alternatively the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) control also can be done with conventional dash mounted switches.
The compressor is mounted in the engine bay and belt driven from the engine pulley.
