No need for a separate gas bottle you can run your fridge through the existing onboard supply. And it things get rough you can rest easy knowing that these units use the same patented swing motor found on the portable ENGEL models.

Onboard extras

An automatic temperature control makes these a breeze to use. Adjustable shelves and door pockets make these an ideal addition to any vehicle. Equipped with ice making compartment.

ENGEL’s World Famous Sawafuji Swing Motor

Unique to ENGEL, this purpose-built compressor is purposely designed for portable refrigeration.

The Sawafuji Swing Motor is a true reciprocating compressor; and is unique in its simplicity – it has only one moving part. The piston connects to an electro dynamic device which is powered by the use of magnetic fields. This technology means no need for bearings, cranks or con-rods; and less moving parts means less chance of failure. The compressor is highly efficient and effective. The Sawafuji Swing Motor does not need to perform a full stroke on start-up unlike many rotary type compressors; meaning it doesn’t have a high start-up current draw. Low friction loss adds to its efficiency.

The Motor operates at 30-degree angles and on rough corrugated tracks without losing any efficiency, making it the most effective choice of motor for ENGEL.

About Engel

It was back in 1908 that Mr Chuzo Sawafuji first founded Sawafuji Electric Manufactory producing its own magnetos. After rapid expansion in 1931 the company renamed to Sawafuji Electric Company Lts and by the 1960s the global name in refrigeration Engel was created. Perhaps best known for their range of portable fridge-freezers Sawafuji are credited for creating the unique and highly reliable Swing Motor. This type of motor is still used today and remains the only compressor of its kind in the world. Within recent years Engel has expanded into upright marine/mobile fridge-freezers and turned their attention to specialist units for the emergency services.
