Zanotti Zero Direct Drive range is for smart refrigerated transport applications.

The range is offered in the split version and includes the models: Z200 (max power 2.6 kW and max cell volume 16m³), Z250 (max power 3.2 kW and cell volume max 19 m³), Z350 (max power 3.2 kW and cell volume max 21 m³), Z380 (max power 3.9 kW and cell volume max 28 m³) and multi-temperature Z380, meeting all the performance cases required by a transport on a medium-sized van.

All models have been designed to offer efficient and uninterrupted operation by using a double compressor.

Placed in the engine compartment of the vehicle and connected to it, the first compressor guarantees the functioning of the machine in “road mode” while the mains compressor is mounted under the elegant body with the innovative design of the condensing unit and is powered by an external electrical source when the van is parked.

The zero range includes the z380s multi-temperature model, which is designed to meet the needs of transporting products in multiple compartments and at different temperatures.

Different configurations in terms of evaporators and number of fans are possible.

The quick and easy standard installation involves positioning the condensing unit on the wall behind the vehicle cabin or on the roof without affecting the vehicle line.

The ultra-thin evaporator (max 19.4 cm) is placed directly on the ceiling of the cell avoiding the need to reduce the loading volume.

The kits for the electrical connection to the vehicle battery and the condensation drain kits are included in the standard equipment as well as the cables for mains connection (max 10 m).

The operation, performance and hot gas defrosting of the zer0° models are always controllable and modifiable through a practical control unit provided in the cabin with a user interface which guarantees that the product is efficiently kept at precisely the right temperature for the entire duration of the trip.

Z380 Multi and Z380 Multi (Narrow Evap) models are designed to meet the modern needs of low environmental impact refrigeration for light commercial vehicles.

These units feature additional evaporators to enable transport of products with different temperature requirements in separate zones, available in multiple configurations to adapt to a wide range of applications.
