Reefer company Thermo King has launched new software for its Magnum Plus reefers with the MP-4000 controller.
The new energy-logging software will be standard on all new units beginning in 2018 and is available for all existing Magnum Plus reefers through a software update.
“From the beginning, our technology was built to deliver the highest efficiency, maximum cooling capacity and lowest total cost of ownership,” said Brian O’Donoghue, global marine product manager.
“The ability to add a power logging feature through software enhancements in our controller puts valuable data directly at the user’s fingertips, providing energy consumption details for trips and total reefer life, and giving fleets the ability to optimise operations and offerings accordingly.”
The new Thermo King power logging feature gives customers the ability to see the total power usage of a reefer, measured in kilowatts (kW) per hour. The power draw is logged and viewable from both the MP-4000 controller and the standard download file.
