Go Power! Pure Sine Wave power inverter

Products Featured at Upcoming National Work Truck Shows

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA (March 6, 2013) Go Power! by Carmanah Technologies announced today that it has outfitted more than 1500 service vehicles with power inverters for a major Utility’s fleet.  The customized pure sine wave inverter solution will be integrated into the battery system of each truck; it will provide an eco-friendly, cost-savings solution for the American Utility company.  This deal illustrates the growing shift in attitudes towards engine idling as more fleet professionals look for alternative products to reduce their carbon footprint.  Go Power! is a leading provider of this integrated technology and will feature their product suite at this week’s NTEA Work Truck Show in Booth 5764.

 
A work truck utilizing power tools may resort to a PTO generator, powered by the running engine, or an external gas or diesel mobile generator.  A Go Power! inverter optimizes the power drawn from the battery without ever requiring the engine to be turned on.  Besides avoiding engine idling, these Go Power! inverters are more compact, lighter and more economically-priced than many of their counterparts.  An added benefit to installing a commercial-grade pure sine wave inverter is that it will produce an exact replica of AC power – this is especially important for sensitive electronics such as laptops, charging bases for power tools and utility test equipment.
 
The Solar Option – A Bonus for your Battery
 
If left idle, most late model service vehicles can experience battery drain from after-market devices added into the electrical system. A Go Power! solar kit or trickle charger provides an unlimited, clean source of power, that will ensure any vehicle parked for long periods of time, will have a fully charged battery when needed.  Also, by fully charging the on-board batteries in your vehicle you can actually increase the life-cycle; saving the fleet money on replacement batteries.

The Go Power! team provides total solar and inverter systems, customized for each fleet .  The company’s products have been installed in thousands of service vehicles across North America, such as civil engineering, utility, long-haul, EMS and fire trucks.

Carmanah’s Go Power! team will be exhibiting their power inverter product line at the following national trade shows: NTEA’s The Work Truck Show, March 6 – 8, Booth 5764; Mid-America Trucking Show, March 21 - 23, Booth 65181 and NAFA Fleet Management Association’s Institute and Expo, April 24 – 25, Booth 722.
