Blue Tree Systems, a provider of reefer monitoring, trailer tracking and in-cab fleet management systems, 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.

“These advanced features combined with our several years of experience in providing temperature management systems that comply with strict legislation in Europe is driving our U.S. sales exponentially as customers prepare their businesses for impending U.S. food safety legislation, and for ever increasing customer demands for proof of load integrity and visibility to in-transit temperatures,” says Charlie Cahill, CEO of Blue Tree Systems.

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

Blue Tree Systems says that R:Com allows the transporter to react quickly to load rejections by providing the ability to quickly generate temperature reports in graph or tabular format that are indisputable and can be emailed directly to the end customer.
