The automatic climate system
Tests show that when temperatures are too high, drivers tend to make mistakes and misjudge situations. In other words, climate has a huge effect on your productivity and safety as a driver.
But it takes more than standard climate equipment - such as a fan and a heater or cooler - to create an optimum in-cab climate. That is why we have developed the unique Volvo Electronic Climate Control (ECC), for our trucks.
With the ECC all you have to do is set the temperature control knob at the desired temperature level, and the system takes care of the rest. The ECC is a highly advanced system that monitors cab and outdoor temperatures, evaporator temperature, vehicle speed engine revolutions per minute and several other parameters. Its thermostat controls the cab temperature, air distribution, airflow, and fresh air intake accordingly.
Having said that, the cabin climate control always remains in your hands so at the click of a button, the automatic mode can be switched off.
