Carrier Transicold’s IntelliSet trailer refrigeration control option has been improved with new preset profiles that make it easier to program for better temperature management and fuel economy, its maker said. Carrier Transicold is a business unit of Carrier Corp., part of United Technologies Corp.

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 highly sophisticated Advance microprocessor control.

More than just a temperature control, the Advance microprocessor can be configured to achieve an optimal balance between temperature management and fuel economy. The IntelliSet option provides the ability to program different refrigeration parameters for multiple commodities, which the driver can then easily select by name from a scrolling list. The new profiles expand IntelliSet capabilities by providing users with a simplified quick start to programming for most applications, while allowing further fine-tuning as needed.

“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 unique feature from Carrier Transicold. 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, turn to the experts within the Carrier dealer network or visit http://www.trucktrailer.carrier.com.
