DataLINE™ – A simple way to extract critical trip information and generate meaningful reports.

Diagnostic software lets you interrogate, configure and monitor the refrigeration controller and DataCorder™ trip data recorder with unmatched precision. It offers many advanced features and supports multiple controller platforms including: Micro-Link® 5, Micro-Link® 3, Micro-Link 2i, Micro-Link2 and Micro-Link 1 controllers (using DataReader™).

DataLINE diagnostic software provides solutions for service technicians, shippers and marketing personnel.

  • User can extract information from the DataCorder trip date recorder in four ways:
    • By Date
    • By Trip
    • Last 30 Days
    • All Data
  • Text reports can be saved to standard ASCII formatted file. Eight types of reports can be generated from interrogated data:

    • Sensor
    • Sensor/Event Flags
    • Graphical
    • Event
    • Pre-trip Summary
    • Alarm Summary
    • Cold Treatment Summary
    • Raw
    • Custom-sensor, graphical alarm, event

Software

PC card technology allows you to download most DataCorder™ trip data recorder information in less than 30 seconds.

Allows for quick trip data analysis and diagnostics. 

DataBank™ PC card technology is operationally cost-effective.

  • Downloads 30 day, 60 day, 90 day, Trip or All data in 30 seconds or less.
  • Frees up valuable time and allows for quick diagnostics analysis.
  • Compact design (fits into a pocket) provides simple and affordable tool to download trip data.
  • No special cables or connectors required.

Delivers the Micro-Link® 3 programming ease to units equipped with Micro-Link 2 and Micro-Link 2i controllers.

Instead of fading into obsolescence, older controllers can now benefit from the convenience of today’s MicroLink 3.  The PC Card Adapter will allow use of ML2 type SRAM cards in loading software and configuration files to the ML2 and ML2i controllers, replacing the older ML2 and ML2i flash memory cards. It can also be used to extract data from units with ML2i controllers using Databank software.

PC Card Adapter has unique features

  • One single SRAM card can hold multiple operation and configuration software sets, reducing the number of cards technicians need to carry.
  • When used with the ML2i, DataCorder data can be downloaded directly to a Databank card
  • Highly visible orange cover makes it easy to spot
  • Integral cover protects the external circuit board from damage.
  • Highly durable and includes PC Adapter, case and instructions

Explore two powerful ways to enhance your fleet

Take the benefits of your fleet’s Micro-Link® 3 (ML3) controllers even further with two powerful add-ons designed to help you save time and reduce costs. The Micro-Link 3 Service Tool (MST) and the Micro-Link 3 USB Adapter (MUA) from Carrier Transicold are easy-to-use products designed to improve the way operators interact with their controllers.

  • The MUA is designed to function as a pass-through USB device and will stay in the controller after installation. The device will be married to the controller.
  • The MST is designed as a USB service tool to maintain and service Carrier units fitted with an ML3 controller. The device is intended to be temporarily inserted into the controller.

Your link to greater functionality

Whether you’re using the MUA or the MST to stay in control of your units, you can be confident in the quality engineering and reliable support of Carrier Transicold. Both products are designed to improve functionality and make your controllers easier to work with and service.

PrimeLINE ML5 Controller software (ML5 PrimeLINE unit models 69NT40-571, 69NT40-575)

The controller software is a custom designed program that is subdivided into configuration software and operational software. The controller software performs the following functions:

  • Control supply or return air temperature to required limits, provide modulated refrigeration operation, economized operation, unloaded operation, electric heat control, and defrost. Defrost is performed to clear buildup of frost and ice to ensure proper air flow across the evaporator coil.
  • Provide default independent readouts of setpoint and supply or return air temperatures.
  • Provide ability to read and (if applicable) modify the configuration software variables, operating software function codes and alarm code indications.
  • Provide a pre-trip step-by-step checkout of refrigeration unit performance including: proper component operation, electronic and refrigeration control operation, heater operation, probe calibration, pressure limiting and current limiting settings.
  • Provide battery-powered ability to access or change selected codes and setpoint without AC power connected. This is only if the carrier-provided rechargeable battery option is installed.
