Truma North America has added a new air conditioner to its North American system offerings: the Truma Saphir.
The Saphir is an under-the-bench air conditioner with electric heating capability, designed for discreet installation in smaller RVs. Truma President and CEO Gerhard Hundsberger unveiled the new cooling system at the company’s 10th anniversary party last month. The company said the compact unit has been popular in Europe since its introduction in 2006 and has now been certified for sale in the United States and Canada.
Truma Saphir is powered by 120-volt AC power and offers 7,000-BTU cooling and 6,500-BTU heating capability. A key consideration was keeping the system as efficient and effective as possible using low current consumption, the company said. Also, the ducted installation gives manufacturing partners the flexibility to determine the location, size and shape of needed ducts suitable for their application. This ensures effective cooling as well as heating throughout the RV.
The Truma Saphir will be available to OEMs in early 2024, the company said.
