Blue Tree Systems Inc announced its R:COM Temperature Management System has been approved for both one-way and now two-way communication with all DataTrak-equipped Carrier Transicold transport refrigeration units operating in North and South America.

The R:COM System can connect to and remote-control all Carrier single- and multi-temp truck and trailer refrigeration units using microprocessor control systems dating to 1996.

“We have been providing our industry-leading R:COM Temperature Management System for over 12 years in both Europe and the United States, and we are delighted that we can now offer our robust advanced remote-control reefer functionality to our US customers for their Carrier Transicold units,” said Charlie Cahill, chief executive officer of Blue Tree. “Carrier customers will now have improved capability to control their reefer operations and safeguard their temperature-sensitive cargos.

The approval provides users with Carrier Transicold units remote-control functionality for their units, including ability to change set-points, clear alarm codes, and perform pre-trips. This functionality is in addition to the advanced temperature monitoring and recording functionality Blue Tree already provides for Carrier refrigeration units and other systems.

R:COM allows the transporter to react quickly to load rejections by allowing them to quickly and easily generate temperature reports in graph or tabular format that are indisputable and can be emailed directly to the end customer in seconds as accurate proof of in-transit temperatures. This functionality is essential for all refrigerated transporters, but especially for transporters of pharmaceuticals or other high-value, temperature-sensitive cargos where load rejection is not an option.

Blue Tree’s system extends to provide a range of independent temperature data loggers suitable for different vehicle types (such as small truck or van) and also for warehouse monitoring applications. The firm also offers rugged product temperature probes, which are ideal to prove temperature compliance in multi-drop operations where the air temperature can struggle to recover between deliveries.
