Carrier-Solara-Heater-with-APX-controller

Carrier Transicold announced that its Solara heating unit now features the APX control system, providing improved functionality.

Using a Z482 two-cylinder diesel engine, compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 4 standard, the Solara unit can generate 50,000 BTU/hour of heating at 0 degrees Fahrenheit ambient to protect against the freezing of sensitive commodities such as produce, beverages, flowers, plants, paints and chemicals, pharmaceuticals and more, the company says.

The APX controller has a dashboard-style display and is preloaded with Carrier Transciold’s programmable IntelliSet software to create heating parameters for different commodities. With the APX controller, the DataLink data recorder is now integral to the Solara unit, the company said.

Additional options for the Solara unit include:

  • DataTrak software, which enables remote communications via telematics;
  • Flush-mount and surface-mount control panels, providing optional control placement on the outside or inside of the trailer;
  • Fuel-level sensors;
  • An open-door indicator;
  • Shutdown switches; and
  • Fuel tank options range from 30 to 120 gallons.
