A real-time, two-way communication and control unit for refrigeration monitoring has been released by CarrierWeb. ReeferMate provides visibility to fleet managers who can monitor, manage and control all reefer assets from anywhere, the company said.
The system interfaces directly with the microprocessor controllers of major manufacturers’ reefer units and is built with weatherproof components. Mounted in the cowling of the reefer compartment, the unit is always on and powered through the reefer power source or the 7-way plug.
“Our customers are always looking to increase operating efficiencies and the CarrierWeb ReeferMate offering is an important tool to help them quickly achieve those business objectives,” saidJohn Marous, president & CEO. “Our Always-On technology has been adopted by fleet owners who recognize that tracking, monitoring and communication technology is a key component in making better business decisions, protecting assets and cargo, and producing visible results to improve the bottom line.”
ReeferMate provides monitoring and control of reefer status, including operating state, temperatures, alarms and alarm disposition clearing, power and battery status, and fuel level. Exception event information is reported in real time. Exception events include on-time status and fuel changes to operations, route deviations to safety, financial parameters to finance and executive management, and more. All the information can be integrated into a fleets’ internal operations system in addition to being available on CarrierWeb’s web site.
