4. VMAC throttle control for UNDERHOOD and DTM systems

VMAC has upgraded the throttle control on all new UNDERHOOD and direct-transmission mounted air compressor systems from an analog system to a digital system. The digital throttle control connects to a vehicle’s OBD2 CAN data bus connector, allowing it to zero in on revolution-per-minute setpoints faster and more efficiently than previous analog controllers. As a result, the air compressor systems can quickly achieve the desired revolutions per minute, with minimal revving. The digital throttle control is also easier to set up: Simply plug the throttle control into the vehicle and it’s ready to go. Adjustments to base idle and max air idle are typically no longer required, as the system automatically finds the right settings for the air compressor’s cubic-feet-per-minute output. 800-738-8622;
