Carrier Transicold’s DataLink 2 recorder is an independent temperature monitoring and reporting device designed for single- and multi-temperature applications. The recorder uses up to three independent temperature sensors to provide an added layer of verification beyond the refrigeration system’s built-in recording ability. An integral thermal printer allows drivers to produce numerical and graphical trip reports quickly and easily for receivers, and data also can be downloaded into a personal computer for electronic logging.
The device also acts an analytical tool when connected to a Carrier Transicold refrigeration unit’s control system; temperature data captured from its own sensors can be correlated against activities recorded by the control system, helping to identify potential sources of temperature excursions. Designed for plug-and-play simplicity, the recorder auto-detects the Carrier Transicold controller, and setup is done through a “soft menu” system. Two recorder styles are offered: body-mount models that attach to either a truck or trailer cargo area, and an in-dash version for convenient driver access in straight truck applications.
