Enhanced IntelliSet simplifies programming
Apr 1, 2008 12:00 PM
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. Eight profiles — four for perishables and four for frozen cargo — provide templates for the most common applications. Profiles have preconfigured settings for more than 50 refrigeration parameters, eliminating steps in the set-up and operation of Carrier's 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.
Profiles are configured to operate in continuous, start/stop, and high airflow modes or a combination of the three based on ambient temperature. 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.
