Thermo King adds connectivity to T-Series

Brussels, Belgium: Thermo King has added TK BlueBox connectivity to its T-Series range of self-powered fridges.

PTK BlueBox is part of Thermo King’s TracKing telematics. It means users can remotely access unit data and get real-time notifications to ensure that the load is protected and the unit is running at its most efficient.

Drivers can monitor cargo temperatures and the reefer even when they are away from the vehicle during deliveries or on a break.”

Colm O’Grady, product manager, Thermo King, said: “With this new solution on our T-Series range fleet managers and business owners will receive improved level of real time intelligence on the operation of their refrigerated vehicle.

“The TK BlueBox device gathers data from multiple sensors and transfers all data to the central TracKing™ platform over the air. This gives fleet managers the capability to see things like unit operating and temperature status or temperature set-point, all from one central location. If they see something out of the ordinary, they can instantly address the issue to avoid any negative impact to the load.”

TK BlueBox telematics can be accessed remotely through a free TK Reefer app on smart phone or Bluetooth-enabled device. This provides two-way communication that allows real-time unit management and access to critical data to ensure that the load is protected at all times.

Bluetooth enables the users within the connection’s range to remotely manage defrost, pre-trip, set point and additional operating mode settings.

The unit can also be accessed and managed remotely from anywhere in the world through an internet connection as part of Thermo Kings TracKing system.
