Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America, Inc. is the market leader in innovation, and now making a name for themselves on the production line with their innovative SmarTemp Control.

Beginning March 2, 2015 Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution trucks can roll off of the production line equipped with Webasto’s digital SmarTemp Control. Webasto’s SmarTemp Control is designed to work exclusively with Webasto’s Air Top 2000 ST bunk air heater. “This is such an exciting OE partnership for us. To have the SmarTemp Control offered on a truck that top fleets depend on and recommend is a testimony to the high level of design, engineering and testing we put into the product,” says Webasto Thermo & Comfort President and CEO, Dr. Rolf Haag. “To achieve this less than one year after the launch of the SmarTemp in the aftermarket is a great accomplishment.”

Precision Bunk Temperature Management

Webasto’s SmarTemp Control delivers ultra-precise temperature control with a unique rotary dial that lets drivers dial-in the temperature they want while the device does the rest. The SmarTemp Control maintains constant bunk temperatures which reduces idling and ultimately leads to fuel savings. The intelligent, effective and appealing user interface complements the sleek and ergonomic style of the Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution models.

The SmarTemp Control is extremely user-friendly, simply toggle between menu options with main dial and once in the chosen menu, scroll up or down to the desired selection. The large, backlit LCD screen shows ambient bunk temperature and desired or “set” temperature. Users can quickly adjust heat or ventilation mode, continuous or timed runs, low voltage disconnect thresholds, password protection and preventative maintenance reminders from the main menu. The innovative controller offers three language selections and can display in Fahrenheit or Celsius temperature scales.
