Power to drive your business! Independent power for mobile office

How do you run an air conditioner from the batteries in a van for hours?

Paul approached us to assist with setting up his mobile office in the back of his Mercedes Sprinter. The requirements were to run a roof top air conditioner that would keep the entire rig cool throughout a full working day, giving him the ability to effectively run his business while he was on site or in between jobs. Powering an air conditioner is no small job so a specialized solution was required.

The power solution was this…

The complete independent power for mobile office solution included:

  • Dometic Ibis 4 Inverter Air Conditioner
  • MaxxAir Fan 12 volt automatic opening roof hatch
  • 3 Solar panels
  • Enerdrive Lithium battery which packs the maximum power into the smallest and lightest package
  • 2 x DC Chargers
  • 3000 Watt inverter to run the air conditioner, laptop and other appliances
  • Power monitor display
  • Additional system cooling fans
  • External power point to power tools and equipment on site
  • Automatic loading ladder rack
  • Interior work lights
  • Exterior work lights
  • UHF radio

The resulting system has succeeded in fulfilling Paul’s requirements for a mobile office and a system that allows the Dometic air conditioner to run through the day without requiring to be plugged into mains power. Paul can run his business from anywhere in comfort.
