Carrier Transicold introduces APX refrigeration control system

Louisville, KY, US: Carrier Transicold has launched its APX control system for truck fridges at the Mid-America Trucking Show. APX is claimed to be easier to use and has a large display Initially, it will be available as an option on Carrier’s X2 Series fridges.

APX is 40% lighter and has fewer electrical connections. All modules use the CAN-bus communications protocol. David Kiefer, director of marketing and product management for Carrier says: “CAN-bus makes system expansion, adding modules for expanded capabilities, as simple as plug-and-play.”

“A system manufactured today can be easily upgraded with future hardware capabilities by adding new modules in ‘daisy-chain’ fashion. From a fleet and driver perspective, it’s the easiest yet to program and use, and it provides exceptional temperature management for any hauled commodity, especially when users take advantage of popular optional Carrier applications, or apps,” Kiefer says

“The architecture is also in place to allow us to talk to other systems on the truck in the future,” he says.

The backlit LCD display continuously shows operating status and displays messages in English, Spanish, French or Portuguese. Dedicated menu buttons reduce the number of keystrokes required to access functions. The APX display module can also show data trip recorder graphs and features four times more memory capacity than Carrier’s Advance controller. The USB port handles downloads of trip data reports onto a jump drive with flash memory. It also enables program uploads, reefer set-up and upgrades, diagnostics and more via the APX flash drive and Carrier’s TRU-Tech PC software.

Three user modes are available through the new APX control module: a Driver Mode and Advanced Mode for more experienced operators and a Technician Mode. Each has its own access levels and custom menus designed to increase ease of use.  APX comes with a 3-year, 6,000-hour warranty.
