ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Tecumseh Products Co. announced the release into India of a new line of dc Masterflux® compressors, designed specifically for battery-cooling applications within the region’s growing telecommunications market.Tecumseh Compressor

The new product, which will be the first of its kind manufactured in India, features a highly-efficient Tecumseh THK reciprocating compressor specially fitted with a brushless (BLDC) motor and an additional controller for converting dc power to three-phase power. The product will have both fixed speed and variable speed capability.

“These new specialized compressors are affirmation of Tecumseh’s commitment to provide high quality, efficient products to its customers in India and the surrounding region,” said Jim Connor, Tecumseh Products Co. president and CEO. Connor, who was in India for the announcement, added, “I commend our product development and manufacturing teams in India and North America for their teamwork on this project.”

The advent of 3G technology into India’s expanding telecommunications industry creates a critical need for robust cooling requirements to help extend battery life within remote shelter installations. The Masterflux compressors manufactured by Tecumseh India are well-suited for the T3 ambient temperature range of up to 55˚C often times seen in India and the Middle East.

The first product introduced will be 48V and provide 500W of cooling capacity. Additional models are being developed for both 12-V and 24-V applications to address additional market segments.

“This is just the beginning of our initiative to launch innovative and value-added products in the Indian market,” said R. Ravi, managing director of Tecumseh Products India. “Our goal is to soon have an expanded offering of high-efficiency dc solutions for many telecom, solar and mobile applications.”
