SkyBitz, in partnership with StarTrak Systems, is launching the SkyBitz Reefer Control Solution, an affordable refrigeration monitoring and control technology.
SkyBitz Reefer Control enables fleet managers to monitor, manage and control all of their reefer assets from any desktop. By integrating the SkyBitz GLS 210 Mobile Terminal with StarTrak's ReeferTrak module, SkyBitz Reefer Control adds an unprecedented level of visibility to any reefer business with the benefits of coverage provided by satellite technology at an aggressive price point, according to the company. With desktop monitoring in real time, SkyBitz Reefer Control allows for complete visibility across all reefer units.
The SkyBitz Reefer Control solution offers customers the combined benefits of a leading satellite communications and tracking solution with a proven, two-way control system available for all types of transport refrigeration configurations from StarTrak. StarTrak is also offering SkyBitz's satellite solutions to its customers.
Key to the SkyBitz Reefer Control Solution is the ability to offer two-way communication and control with up-to-the-minute microprocessor information. Through the ReeferTrak module, the SkyBitz Reefer Control system interfaces directly to the microprocessors of reefer units provided by all major manufacturers.
Reefer status monitoring includes features such as operating state, temperatures, alarms, battery condition, fuel level, etc., and two-way control functionality to change reefer temperature set-point, clear alarms, etc. This advanced functionality is all visible via the SkyBitz website application, InSight.
