Spheros, manufacturer of bus heating and air conditioning systems, has signed a framework agreement with IVECO for equipping its new Crossway with the SC 1000 climate control.

This order is not to be underrated: every year IVECO manufactures over 3,000 Crossway type buses in the Line, Pro and Low Entry (LE) versions, which have meanwhile become firmly established in Europe as market leaders in intercity buses. Also on board the new Euro 6 model: Spheros’ easy-to-operate SC 1000 central electronics for heating and air conditioning comfort. In addition, from the middle of the year the new roof hatch generation of the Modus series is to be installed, including the all-electric DHC digital hatch control, and the Aquavent 6000 water pump. The first vehicles left the production halls in the Czech Republic in February.

Clearly arrange cockpit

Spheros has responded to the growing demand for integral solutions for climate controls that avoid interfaces, thus creating functional and cost advantages. It has developed a control unit that regulates the air conditioning in the passenger compartment and driver’s section. In addition, it assumes control of the roof and floor heating and the heating pre-selection timer. Where four separate control elements were previously needed, the new SC 1000 unit combines all functions in one clearly laid out and user-friendly device. The required software was developed and programmed in close cooperation with IVECO and covers a total of eight different vehicle configurations.

“We have been supplying IVECO with heaters, roof hatches and air conditioning systems for many years now. Having the opportunity to demonstrate our electronics competence is a big success and an endorsement of the many years of pioneering work,” says Markus Hummel, Spheros Key Account Manager.
