Enhanced heating unit for trailers
Carrier Transicold, Athens, Ga., enhanced its Solara heating unit to now feature the APX control system.
Using a Z482 2-cylinder diesel engine, compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 4 standard, the Solara unit can generate 50,000 BTU/hour of heating at 0°F ambient to protect against the freezing of sensitive commodities such as produce, beverages and more.
The APX controller boasts an easy-to-read, full information dashboard-style display that’s pre-loaded with Carrier Transciold’s programmable IntelliSet software to create heating parameters for different commodities. The DataLink data recorder is now integral to the Solara unit, and a USB port makes for easy data downloading and uploading of information to the controller. Plus, built-in diagnostics simplify service and troubleshooting for technicians.
Additional options include:
DataTrak software that enables remote communications via telematics.
Flush-mount and surface-mount control panels, providing optional control placement on the outside or inside of the trailer.
An open-door indicator.
Fuel tank options range from 30-120 gallons.
