Vanair's Air N Arc I300 is cited to be the first system to offer six forms of power in a single 48-in. unit. Based on Air N Arc 300 diesel system technology, it provides an integrated 40-cfm rotary screw compressor, 7-kW ac generator, 300-amp welder, battery booster and battery charger—with the newly added power of a 10.5-gpm hydraulic pump, all driven by a single engine. Designed to provide full functionality with the truck engine off, mechanics can remain productive in all areas of their workday with enough power to run a crane. The I300 reduces chassis fuel consumption, noise and engine maintenance while meeting anti-idling laws.
Small enough to fit behind the cab or on the side pack of the vehicle, the unit saves money, space and weight when compared to purchasing and installing individual components. With the I300, there is no need to purchase a separate welder, compressor or generator. The system ties directly into the vehicle’s electrical system, allowing the truck’s battery to be charged to support work and safety lights and shares the diesel fuel source for maximum ease of use.
