"Dash Panel" controls the system either through manual
control or completely automatic control. "AUTO" mode
will run and maintain the systems based on pre-determined target

powered predominantly through a high capacity alternator. The
alternator used are the same alternators used in the construction
of fire trucks, ensuring their reliability. As a backup, an additional
bank of deep cycle backup batteries are provided, which can offer
up to four hours of operation without connection to any tractor.
