ATHENS, Ga. — Carrier Transicold has introduced new APX remote panels, which allow operators to control reefer temperatures from more convenient locations.
The remote panels are available in two configurations: the flush-mount design can be mounted inside the trailer, near the rear doors. The surface-mount option is installed on trailer exteriors. Flush-mount panels are especially useful at distribution centers, where personnel can configure the reefer by walking into the trailer from a loading dock, the company says.
The surface-mount panels are usually mounted near the front of the trailer, opposite the main unit control, providing safer curbside access when the vehicle is parked along a traffic corridor.
“Remote panels provide the ability to control the refrigeration system from secondary locations that are more convenient for drivers and distribution operations,” said Mark Fragnito, product manager, Carrier Transicold. “The new APX remote panels provide the same control functionality as the main APX control display common to Carrier Transicold’s current X4 and Vector series trailer refrigeration units.”
