Carrier Transicold has introduced eight new presets to its refrigeration system.
ATHENS, Ga. — Carrier Transicold’s IntelliSet trailer refrigeration control option has been updated with new preset profiles that are designed to make it easier to program for better temperature management and fuel economy.
Eight profiles four for perishables and four for frozen cargo provide templates for the most common applications. The new profiles have preconfigured settings for more than 50 refrigeration parameters, eliminating steps in the set-up and operation of Carrier’s Advance microprocessor control.
The Advance microprocessor can be configured to achieve an optimal balance between temperature management and fuel economy, the company says. The IntelliSet option provides the ability to program different refrigeration parameters for multiple commodities, which the driver can then select by name from a scrolling list.
“The IntelliSet option is known for bringing push-button simplicity to refrigeration unit operation,” said Mark Fragnito, Carrier Transicold’s electronics product manager. “However, commodity parameters still must be created, and that takes some refrigeration knowledge. That’s where the new profiles assist by simplifying the programming process.”
The profiles are configured to operate in continuous, start/stop, and high airflow modes or a combination of the three based on ambient temperature, a feature which Carrier officials say is unique to the company. The choices cover a spectrum of needs, ranging from the most miserly fuel consumption to high-precision temperature control for the greatest product protection. The profiles can also start the unit automatically in severe cold weather to prevent fuel gelling.
At the trailer, an operator simply picks the most appropriate of the eight general profiles from the Advance control’s display screen and adds a temperature setpoint when prompted. Users of the ReeferManager software application can also use the templates as starting points for further customization.
“We’re making it easier for customers to tap into the power of the Advance control and IntelliSet option for better temperature management and fuel economy,” Fragnito explained. “Profiles allow new users to quickly benefit from the complete functionality of the system, and knowledgeable users will appreciate the ability to fine-tune profiles for even greater benefits.”
The IntelliSet option and the new preset profiles are available for all Carrier units with the Advance controller, whether new or existing equipment. For more information visit www.trucktrailer.carrier.com.
