Dometic Introduces the CRX 50, a Rugged New Fridge for Trucks  

The road-ready CRX 50 has a removable freezer to maximize fridge space, and the best cooling capacity and lowest power consumption in its class

Louisville, Ky. – March 10, 2015Dometic Group, a global provider of comfort products for the truck, caravan, motor home, automotive and marine markets, today announced that it will introduce the CRX 50, a rugged new built-in refrigerator for trucks, in booth #14252 at the Mid-America Trucking Show, March 26-28 in Louisville, Ky. The CRX 50 has a 50-liter overall capacity and a well-insulated freezer compartment that is easily removed if the driver prefers to maximize fridge space. It also has the best cooling capacity and lowest power consumption in its class. All internal controls are electronic, with no mechanical parts that wear out over time.

“The CRX 50 has undergone rigorous stress and vibration testing and is the most rugged and reliable refrigerator in its class,” said Jim Kerrigan, Vice President of OEM Sales, Dometic Commercial & Passenger Vehicle division. “The added flexibility of a removable freezer compartment means drivers can easily adjust the interior configuration to meet their specific needs. Drivers can rely on this refrigerator to keep their fresh food cold while on the road.”

The CRX 50 is a direct fit replacement for all major brands. OEM programs are available.

The CRX 50, ideal for Class 8 trucks, is designed to maximize comfort and convenience. The removable freezer allows the CRX 50 to be transformed into a refrigerator-only unit, or, if needed, a freezer-only unit with temperatures of 17-21F. The unit has LED controls that are easy to read and operate, with smart error indicator features. It runs quieter than other refrigerators, thanks to a variable-speed compressor that reduces rotation when set temperature is achieved. The CRX 50 unit is 17.84″ wide, 22.13″ high and 19.69″ deep, and weighs 51 pounds.

The CRX 50 has been engineered for durability and energy efficiency. Solid mounting of all parts to the compressor plate prevents movement between components, eliminating buzz, squeak and rattle issues and vastly reducing the chance of malfunction due to rough road conditions. The tube and fin condenser provides enhanced cooling performance, durability and corrosion resistance, versus traditional wire condensers. The advanced electronic control module allows for multiple compressor speeds, making the CRX 50 the most energy efficient fridge in its class.
