CONTROLS AND EQUIPMENT
Thermal box*
CONTROLS AND EQUIPMENT
General description
The thermal box is powered by an additional
battery and can only operate on 12 Voits.
Depending on the model version, the box is
located in the seat runners in the passenger
compartment or in the luggage compart-
ment.
Warning
• When the vehicle is in motion,
the lid of the thermal box must be
closed and locked. The thermal
box must also be in the seat
runners and be securely engaged
in the driving position.
• If the thermal box is to be
transported without being in-
stalled (e.g. in the luggage com-
partment), the lid must be closed
and locked. Furthermore, you
must secure the thermal box so
that it does not become a safety
hazard during an accident or
braking manoeuvre.
The box works almost completely indepen-
dent of incline and without the engine being
switched on. A battery monitor integrated in
the lid ensures that the battery will always
be able to start the engine.
The battery monitor will switch off the ther-
mal box automatically if the voltage of the
additional battery falls below 11.5 Volt. The
thermal box will switch back on automati-
cally once the battery voltage has reached
12.8 Volt.
It is possible to keep drinks and food either
cool or warm in the thermal box. The ther-
mal box has a capacity of approx. 32 litres.
The power consumption is approximately
33 Watt.
The interior temperature is dependent on
the surrounding temperature of the thermal
box. When cooling it can be a maximum of
20 °C lower than the ambient temperature
and 35 ° C above when keeping items
warm.
The thermal box will switch off automati-
cally if the interior temperature reaches ap-
prox. 65°C.
Please do not place any items of
clothing or any other articles on the
cooling/warming unit of the thermal
box. The intake opening could be
blocked and switch off the box as a
result.
The runner system in the passenger com-
partment also makes it possible to position
the thermal box behind the driver's seat.
You might, however, need a special 12 Volt
extension cable for the power supply.
Refrigerating
If the surrounding temperature of
the thermal box is low, the interior
temperature could fall below + 2 ° C
when refrigerating. The items in the
thermal box could freeze!
• Place the extension cable plug in the
socket of the thermal box so that the blue
marking on the cable points to the notch -
see illustration.
• The electricity supply is then sot up by
putting the plug into the 12V socket.
Warming operation
The containers and contents that
you place in the thermal box may be
no warmer than 5 0 ° C . The warming
unit of the thermal box could other-
wise be damaged. The containers
will also become hot.
• Place the extension cable plug in the
socket of the thermal box so that the red
marking on the cable points to the notch -
see illustration.
• The electricity supply is then set up by
putting the plug into the 12V socket.
Opening and closing the lid
Warning
• Always close the lid of the
thermal box before driving. The
lid could fall shut and possibly
cause injury if the car stops
suddenly.
• Whilst the vehicle is in motion,
the lid of the thermal box must,
for safety reasons, always be
closed and locked.
Opening
• Press the lock 1 on the lid to the front.
• Lift the lid of the thermal box. When fully
opened, the lid will be held in position by a
support - see illustration.
Closing
Fold down the lid of the thermal box until it
is fully engaged.
