Carrier Introduces External Trailer Temperature Display
November 2011, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Drivers and yard workers alike can now easily keep track of the refrigerated loads temperatures. Carrier Transicold's Dual-View Temperature Display is readable from the ground, or in a reverse image through a west-coast mirror.
The 'dual-view' display can be switched from reverse to normal view for yard monitoring of parked trailers.
An optional accessory available from Carrier Transicold's North American dealer network, the Dual-View Temperature Display mounts on the front corner of a refrigerated trailer, behind the driver for easy visibility in the mirror. The driver can verify the temperature inside the trailer without having to leave the cab to check the unit controller. Large amber LED numerals show temperature in up to three zones in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
The "dual-view" display can be switched from reverse to normal view for yard monitoring of parked trailers. The bright display is easy to read in direct sunlight and automatically dims to reduce glare for evening and night viewing.
"The Dual-View system is more than just an easy-to-read display," said Jason Forman, senior product development manager for Carrier Transicold's Performance Parts Group. "It provides independent verification of box temperatures via its own sensor, or sensors in multi-temp applications. It also shows refrigeration unit status - cool, heat, defrost or warning."
Sealed electronics protect the unit from weather and high-pressure water spray. The Dual-View Temperature Display is compatible with most Carrier Transicold and competitive trailer units, and has a two-year limited parts warranty.
