SkyBitz and StarTrak Systems have teamed to introduce a new refrigeration monitoring and control system for reefers. SkyBitz Reefer Control allows fleet managers to monitor, manage and control all their reefers from their personal computer, the companies announced. The SkyBitz GLS 210 Mobile Terminal has been linked to StarTrak’s ReeferTrak module to provide reefer location and performance information. Fleet managers can access in real-time, information such: operating state; temperature; alarms; battery condition; and fuel level. They can also control temperatures, clear alarms, etc. For more information, visit www.skybitz.com.

Thermo King has introduced three new remote status light displays for reefer-equipped trailers. The displays are designed to make it easier for drivers to check status, temperature and fuel levels by simply glancing in the rearview mirror. Three configurations are available for the new displays: Status; Status/Fuel Level; and Status/Fuel Level/Temperature. Thermo King says the new displays will help drivers avoid out-of-fuel shutdowns. Each display uses highvisibility LED lights and boasts an auto-dimming feature for night-time driving. The displays are compatible with all Thermo King SB trailer units with SR-2 controllers. The lights are available now through Thermo King dealers.
