Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, recently launched the next generation of TracKing, its fleet management system, across Europe. The updated TracKing solution can improve transport energy and operational efficiency and sustainability by saving fuel, reducing maintenance and increasing load protection.
This solution was developed to respond to customer requests for a fleet management system that can be applied to multiple applications: trailer, truck and bus. This innovative product has greater processing power with its higher speed processor and more memory. That Means the GPS/GPRS module will operate faster and have a better response time. Also the power consumption on the new TracKing has been reduced to a minimum hereby increasing the autonomy of the backup battery to 5 days, ensuring more operational coverage of the Track & Trace device.
The Linux operating system allows easier integration of new capabilities. For example, users can upload over the air a fleet temperature profile or manage more geo-fenced areas. The lighter, more compact device is also competitively priced.
Key features include:
The new TracKing also comes with its own telemetry tool for quick installation checks and easy diagnostics. The software provides instant confirmation of the TracKing setup via 3 tests:
Diagnostics is also made easier as the tool returns detailed messages in case of failure. The tool can also generate test reports with results saved and then sent by e-mail for rapid and accurate support.
