The refrigeration system is driven using a compressor that is mounted within the engine compartment and belt driven from the vehicle engine crankshaft.  When the vehicle’s engine is running and the thermostat calls for cooling an electro-magnetic clutch on the compressor is engaged enabling the unit to provide refrigeration.  A three-phase semi-hermetic compressor powers the refrigeration system on mains standby.
