Orbcomm launches reefer container monitoring device

June 28, 2024
Latest generation of Orbcomm’s solution is designed to simplify installation, deployment, and management for shipping lines and container leasing companies.

Orbcomm recently introduced the CT 3600, which is designed to simplify the installation, deployment, and management of reefer container monitoring for shipping lines and container leasing companies, helping to limit downtime and enhance efficiency.

“Maritime IoT deployments can be a challenging experience for shipping lines,” Christian Allred, Orbcomm senior vice president and general manager of maritime logistics, said in a news release. “There are complex technology stacks and the sheer device count of mass deployments to worry about, not to mention third-party installation costs.

“The CT 3600—the most recent addition to our new reefer monitoring solution—makes building and managing an intelligent connected container fleet easier than ever.”

With reduced component requirements, and installation support via an iOS and Android app, the new CT 3600 device is easier to install and deploy than Orbcomm’s previous solution without sacrificing performance and coverage, the company said.

The CT 3600 is installed in and cabled from the reefer controller cabinet without drilling to help avoid potential container damage, reduce third-party installation costs, and deter device theft or tampering. It features a long-lasting internal rechargeable battery, wireless Bluetooth sensor support, works with refrigerated containers from all four major OEMs, and is compliant with DCSA interoperability standards.

“When people think of refrigerated container transportation, they think of Orbcomm,” Allred maintained. “With this new reefer container monitoring solution, we’re continuing our legacy of innovation that started over 30 years ago, delivering world-class reefer technology that helps provide the data businesses need to make smart fleet decisions.”
