Dual-View accessory lets drivers
verify trailer temps from the cab

Haulers now have an easy way to keep track of the refrigerated loads they pull. Carrier Transicold’s Dual-View Temperature Display, an external temperature and status indicator, provides a reverse image in the rearview mirror so it appears correctly for drivers at a glance.
An optional accessory 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 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.
As a “dual-view” device, the 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.
Jason Forman, senior product development manager for Carrier Transicold’s Performance Parts Group, said, “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.
Carrier Transicold is a unit of United Technologies Corp. For more details, visit www.performanceparts.carrier.com.
