Sky window/roof hatch
The cab is equipped with a fixed sky window or, as option, a roof hatch that can be opened 50 mm. It also serves as an emergency exit. The roof hatch can be manually or electrically manoeuvred.
Steering wheel in two different sizes – 450 mm or 500 mm in diameter depending on the truck specification. The steering wheel’s height can be adjusted by up to 90 mm and the angle can be adjusted by 28 degrees. With neck tilt (option) the steering wheel can be adjusted in vertical position between -5° and +15°, thus increasing the driver’s comfort.
There is a choice of three alternative climate systems to cover all needs.
The climate system can also be completed with cab and engine parking heater and I-ParkCool, cab parking cooler.
- Fan ventilation with conventional coolant heater.
- Air conditioning with manual control (MCC).
- Air conditioning with automatic temperature control (ECC/ECC2). This system is also available with sensors for sun intrusion, fog conditions and air quality.
Produces cool air at standstill and can interact with the cab parking heater to generate a comfortable climate, for example during nights when the temperature often goes from hot to cold in a few hours.
The system checks the battery health to ensure the startability of the truck. It calculates how much cooling power is needed in order to air-condition the cabin. If the batteries aren’t fully charged, the system will calculate how much it can be used (without jeopardising the startability). This way, it provides a nice and steady cooling performance during the whole night.
The system is roughly 20dB more silent than competing systems in the market, further improving sleeping quality.
The climate system is fully integrated in the vehicle’s normal air ventilation system* and hot or cold air respectively is distributed through the ordinary vents comfortably and equally divided. Cab aerodynamics and standing height inside the cab are not affected.
