ATHENS, GA — Carrier Transicold has updated the line of applications used to monitor refrigerated trucks, trailers and containers.
The company has released TRU-Tech and TRU-View, two computer programs designed to replace its ReeferManager software.
TRU-Tech is refrigeration management software which allows the user to set operational parameters, and conduct diagnostic functions. It uses TRU-View refrigeration data analysis software, which gives the user information about system performance. For organizations that only want TRU-View, it is available as a standalone application.
TRU-Tech software can also be used by technicians to monitor system parameters, such as sensor inputs and other vital data that may be downloaded for tracking, performance evaluation, record keeping, or analytics. The TRU-View component can generate graphic reports, showing specific TRU system performance over time, and data can be exported into Excel spreadsheets or PDFs.
The TRU-TECH application can be used to create IntelliSet commodity profiles, which when used along with the company’s APX and Advance controls, direct the unit microprocessor to automatically adjust operating parameters for a particular load when the driver selects a commodity or customer name from a list on the control display. IntelliSet profiles can also be used to help maintain the optimum balance between temperature control and fuel economy.
The software runs on Windows OSes and is designed to work with Vector, X4, X2 and X-Series trailer units, as well as Carrier Transicold’s Supra truck units.
