Carrier Transicold’s IntelliSet trailer refrigeration control option has new preset profiles that make it easier to program. Eight profiles – four for perishables and four for frozen cargo – provide templates for the most common applications. The new profiles have pre-configured settings for more than 50 refrigeration parameters, eliminating steps in the set-up and operation of Carrier’s Advance microprocessor control. The new option allows programming different refrigeration parameters for multiple commodities, which the driver can select by name from a scrolling list.
The profiles are configured to operate in continuous, start/stop, and high-airflow modes or a combination of the three based on ambient temperature. The choices range from the most miserly fuel consumption to high-precision temperature control for the greatest product protection, Carrier says. 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.
The IntelliSet option and the new preset profiles are available – both new and retrofit — for all Carrier units with the Advance controller.
