Independent Refrigeration Unit Temperature Monitor

For refrigerated haulers who require independent verification systems to monitor and record temperatures inside trucks and trailers or immediate documentation for receivers, Carrier Transicold now offers the DataLink™ 2 recorder. “Haulers of pharmaceuticals, perishable and frozen food items, and other temperature-critical goods have been making increased use of temperature monitoring and reporting capabilities, and the need for temperature accountability has risen through enactment of the final transportation rules of the Food Safety Modernization Act,” said Mark Fragnito, product manager controls, Carrier Transicold. “The DataLink 2 recorder may play an expanded role in helping food distribution operations more easily track and manage this kind of information for compliance.”

Compatible with most Carrier Transicold microprocessor controllers, the DataLink 2 recorder uses up to three temperature sensors to provide an added layer of monitoring beyond the refrigeration system’s built-in capability. The DataLink 2 recorder can work independently or be connected to the refrigeration control system for a more comprehensive analysis of temperature activity.

A built-in thermal printer lets drivers make trip reports for receivers. Additionally, data can be downloaded into a personal computer for electronic logging. For more information, turn to the experts in Carrier Transicold’s dealer network.
