In 2011, NASA was on the lookout for an
air conditioning system to install in their lunar electric rover. They
decided they needed expert help and consulted numerous suppliers.
Finally, after a rigorous selection process, the space agency chose
Dometic. “We’ve had a lot of firsts over the years, but this custom job
presented special challenges for our engineers,” said a spokesperson for
Dometic. After extensive trials in Arizona, where the system had to
keep scientists and their equipment cool and dry, our technology is now
ready for extra-terrestrial duty.
LOW-PROFILE, HIGH-PERFORMANCE COOLING
The Dometic Penguin II
Rooftop Air Conditioner features a futuristic look and powerful cooling
performance. With a low-profile, 11 1/4 in./29 cm, the sleek shroud
reduces wind resistance while the vehicle is moving. A rib-reinforced
base pan delivers lasting strength, while its R410A refrigerant is more
eco-friendly and releases heat efficiently. Its high-performance motor
and fan deliver a first-class cooling performance. The Penguin II can
operate in ducted and non-ducted cooling systems. Non-ducted application
requires an Air Distribution Box (available separately). Available in
white and black.
