Inverter/charger manufacturer Aura Systems has been chosen to provide Ford Motor Co. F-Series pickups with its AuraGen/ICS inverter charger system. The trucks will be part of the Ford exhibit at the SAE International Truck and Bus Meeting and Exhibition, which will be held at the Navy Pier in Chicago on November 12-14.

The AuraGen ICS option turns the AuraGen into a power management system, the company said. The system provides AC power to the truck user either with the truck engine operating or with the engine off. The transitions between the engine on and off modes are totally transparent to the user both operationally and in power quality, without any spikes or interruptions.
