Tame the battery box heatwave
The Fahrenheit battery from East Penn, made specifically for commercial truck applications, features thermal shielding technology that reduces the need for emergency service and unexpected repairs. It is designed to extend battery life under today’s ever-increasing battery box temperatures, varying climates traveled and increasing key-off power demands. Fahrenheit technology also has a reinforced cycle service AGM design, which means that it better withstands the demands of extra electrical loads in high heat environments. It cycles 50% longer than standard AGM in extreme heat tests and uses a heat reduction catalyst that protects against thermal runaway. The battery is shielded by a thermal-resistant case that optimizes high heat AGM performance. For more information and to find a dealer, visit Fahrenheit31.com or call 610-682-6361.
Real-time communication updates on the move
The new Aware Audio Interrupter system from Purkeys converts telematics and other text-based messages to voice and relays communications wirelessly through the vehicle’s audio speakers while silencing other signals coming through the system. It features a powerful solid-state amplifier that strengthens voice quality and amplitude, helping messages to be heard more clearly, even over ambient highway noise. Aware’s plug-and-play technology integrates with a vehicle’s existing speaker array and operates even when the radio is off without the driver having to turn it on, turn the volume down or take their hands off the wheel. There is also an optional mobile phone microphone connection available, sold separately, for hands-free use. The Aware Audio Interrupter comes with a three-year warranty. For more information and to order, visit Purkeys.net or call 800-219-1269.
