From the team that brought you the world’s first commercially available locomotive APU – and supplied tens of thousands of APU’s to the transportation industry – IEP presents their newest innovation: The Banana Auxiliary Power Unit by IEP.
You said reduce the size and weight… You said make it 72 VDC… We’ve done that and kept the same price as the original locomotive APU first introduced over 15 years ago!
The Banana features a CAT/Perkins diesel engine that is governed at 3,200 RPM.
The engine drives a 130 A, 72 VDC (11kW) generator that heats the locomotive coolant and lube oil, charges the batteries, and can be used to power cab heaters, lights and air conditioners, ensuring your crew’s comfort.
The Banana takes green technology and ripens it to perfection, incorporating innovative new design and automation. The Banana includes an advanced control system complete with adjustable on/off locomotive water temperature and battery set points and CAN bus communication enabled.
Save on fuel without sacrificing crew comfort. Our proprietary Banana APU is designed to:
