Truck unit with dash-mounted interface, remote monitoring and more
The Supra S6 new-generation truck refrigeration unit from Carrier Transicold, Atlanta, combines improved performance, efficiency and reliability with a contemporary new design, making it a welcome addition to fleets that deliver food and other refrigerated goods.
Designed for small- to medium-sized trucks, the Supra S6 unit is the first truck refrigeration unit to use Carrier Transicold’s APX control technology.
With 20 times faster processing speeds than the original, drivers can tap into the APX system’s functionality through the dash-mounted Cab Command control interface, with a backlit LCD display that provides at-a-glance operating information.
The Supra S6 unit seamlessly integrates with Carrier Transicold’s eSolutions telematics, enabling remote monitoring and control of the refrigeration system as well as GPS location data, geofencing and automatic uploads of refrigeration settings and software updates, as well as wireless data downloads.
The Supra unit’s wrap-around honeycomb grille provides clean lines and is removable for easy access to internal components. Overall, the unit is more compact and weighs about 10 percent less than the leading comparable competitive unit.
The unit’s high-performance smart diesel engine is compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4 emissions standard and provides three speeds.
