Thermo King's new TransScan 2 Dataloggers report temperature and conditions for over-the-road loads. By pushing a button, drivers of refrigerated vehicles can provide proof of the temperature in their chiller compartment. The delivery ticket (temperature at delivery time) or a journey ticket (temperatures throughout the journey) can be printed and given to a receiver any time of day.
The three dataloggers are Hazardous Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP)-compliant and offer reporting of box temperatures and event occurrences. Multiple sensors can record temperatures in up to four different areas and will pick up to three event occurrences, such as low fuel levels and door openings. Memory remains secure because of the data-safe memory registered every 10 minutes 24/7 every day.
Dataloggers offer offload of recorded data for storage and analysis on a standard PC using Wintrac 4.1 software. Built-in printers produce delivery tickets, journey tickets, or multi-day graphs (graphical presentation of printed data).
Two of the models are designed for in-cab installation. The 45-1982 fits in-dash into a standard radio slot, while the 45-1986 installs on a vertical surface in the cab. The third model, 45-1983, comes in a weatherproof enclosure and attaches externally to the trailer box. For full details, contact Thermo King, 314 W 90th St, Minneapolis MN 55420-3693.
