Carrier Transicold releases TRU-Tech, TRU-View software

Custom configuration of transport refrigeration unit (TRU) settings and operations analysis is now easier with Carrier Transicold’s new TRU-Tech and TRU-View computer applications. Carrier Transicold helps improve global transport and shipping of temperature-controlled cargoes with a complete line of equipment for refrigerated trucks, trailers and containers, and is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

Successors to Carrier Transicold’s ReeferManager software, the TRU-Tech and TRU-View programs feature a simplified interface with icons and quick links for faster, easier navigation.TRU-Tech refrigeration unit management software is a complete solution for refrigeration data management, including setting operational parameters and conducting diagnostic functions. TRU-Tech comes with TRU-View refrigeration data analysis software, which provides insight into system performance. TRU-View is also available as a stand-alone application for data analysis, without the unit set-up and diagnostic capabilities of TRU-Tech.

Compatible with the latest Windows operating systems, the new programs are designed for use with all Vector, X4, X2 and X-Series trailer units, as well as Carrier Transicold’s Supra truck units.

“Today’s transport refrigeration units – or TRUs – have a wider array of settings, enabling a higher degree of control sophistication,” said Mark Fragnito, product, manager, electronics, Carrier Transicold. “While each refrigeration unit controller can be manually configured at the unit’s keypad, TRU-Tech software provides a faster and easier way to create multiple settings using either a Windows-based computer or tablet. The settings can then be loaded into a single unit or an entire fleet.”

TRU-Tech software’s intuitive screen layout makes it easy to create IntelliSet commodity profiles. IntelliSet profiles, which are used with Carrier Transicold APX and Advance controls, direct the unit microprocessor to automatically adjust operating parameters for a particular load when the driver selects a commodity or customer name from a list on the control display. Fleets can use IntelliSet profiles to help maintain the balance between temperature control and fuel economy, while also helping to eliminate the chance of driver errors.

TRU-Tech software can also be used by technicians to monitor system parameters, such as sensor inputs and other vital data that may be downloaded for tracking, performance evaluation, record keeping or analytics. The TRU-View component can generate graphic reports, showing specific TRU system performance over time, and data can be exported into Excel spreadsheets or PDFs for easy sharing. With both programs, data transfers can be handled easily via a special USB jump drive with the APX control system or via PC cards with the Advance microprocessor. For telematics-enabled refrigeration units, data transfers can be handled wirelessly.
