FRIGOBLOCK, a brand of Thermo King – a leader in transport temperature control solutions, announced today the introduction of new monitoring and connectivity functionalities across its FK-, FKi-, EK-, HK- and DK-Series of refrigeration units. With the new FRIGOBLOCK Connectivity offering, customers can now receive real time data to optimize their equipment and operations for better uptime, temperature control monitoring and cargo safety.
The FRIGOBLOCK Connectivity is fully integrated with the refrigeration unit. It provides full, 24/7 visibility of the unit and load condition, remote monitoring, and proactive control through the TracKing web portal and the TK Reefer application. The solution also connects the customer with a multi-lingual customer support team and the extensive service network for 24/7 emergency assistance.
“Our customers are continuously looking for ways to improve and make their fleet operations smarter. Connectivity is something not to be missed,” said Eneko Fernandez, product leader at Thermo King and FRIGOBLOCK. “Connectivity generates intelligence on the events and values that matter most to fleet operations – from door openings and ambient temperatures, to operational planning and asset utilisation. With FRIGOBLOCK Connectivity we can now put the vast data into work and ensure that the load is protected at all times and the unit is running at its most efficient.”
FRIGOBLOCK Connectivity solutions offer innovative data storage, transfer and management features including:
• Two-way communication that allows real-time unit management and access to critical data to ensure that the load is always protected.
• Bluetooth® connectivity enables the users within the connection’s range to remotely manage the set point and turn the refrigeration unit On or Off.
• The unit can also be accessed and managed remotely from anywhere in the world, and at any time, through an internet connection using a dedicated TracKing web portal or mobile TK Reefer app.
• All data can be integrated into a third-party telematics platform.
FRIGOBLOCK units from the FK-, FKi-, EK-, HK- and DK-Series already in operation and featuring a digital controller, can also start benefiting from the FRIGOBLOCK Connectivity offering thanks to a quick installation of the communication device at one of the FRIGOBLOCK dealers.
