APADS™ Air Conditioning Life Extender

The APAds™ system offers full air conditioning control, protection, and diagnostics.

Its microprocessor-based intelligence offers all the protection of the ACX-10, plus year-round compressor lubrication and cooling fan coordination to prevent fan cycling at idle. APAds™ also aids in preventive maintenance and troubleshooting with its easy-to-read diagnostic fault codes. Specifying the APAds™ system on your new vehicle will save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in A/C maintenance, repair, and downtime over your years of ownership.

APAds™ Offers Multi-function Control

  • Prevents clutch damage from rapid cycling.
  • Prevents clutch slippage from low voltage or over voltage.
  • Improves A/C efficiency at idle.
  • Eases troubleshooting with easy-to-interpret fault codes.
  • Enhances preventive maintenance. Reduces expensive, unscheduled repairs.
  • Detects A/C problems even when A/C is off.

Index APAds identifies A/C problems before they becomemajor repairs. APAds’ Smart Sensor technologyprevents compressor damage, keeps your trucks on the road longer, and slashes A/C maintenance costs.

APAds automatically lubricates, monitors and protects A/C systems year-round. When it discovers a harmful condition like high or low pressure or high/low voltage, APAds temporarily shuts down the compressor, thereby preventing rapid cycling. Technicians or drivers can diagnose the problem quickly by reading APAds’ simple blink codes, under the hood or on the dash display.

Tests show that trucks equipped with APAds spent 65% less on A/C maintenance than identical trucks without APAds.

If it detects a harmful high- or low-pressure condition, APAds automatically disables the compressor to prevent rapid cycling. The system is easily reactivated once the problem is solved.

APAds’ fast, accurate sensors predict failure so minor repairs can be fixed before major damage occurs. APAds’ easy-to-read diagnostic lights reduce guesswork and direct technicians toward the problem. Just check the dash display, or lift the hood and read the lights.
