Temperature monitoring Locus has developed the LinkItAll software for Carrier, and our solutions are linked to LinkItAll. We can therefore receive temperature data that can be linked to routes and orders, for example.
Consequently, it will be possible to link the data from the refrigeration unit to the orders that have been executed and ensure close monitoring of refrigerated and frozen shipments.
LinkItAll provides temperature data, vehicle positions and times, routes driven, the set-point set by the driver, and the length of time that the doors have been open. The system is web-based and also provides information about the operation of the refrigeration system and where there is a workshop that can provide assistance. There are also alarms for temperature deviations and system downtime.
Safety and documentation
The system helps you to ensure the correct temperature and provides temperature data for the entire transport journey.
The requirements for correct temperatures are becoming increasingly stringent, as are the requirements to document the temperature for the entire journey. LinkItAll is a fleet management system that Locus has produced for Carrier Transicold to provide their customers with good levels of safety and temperature control.
Monitoring of refrigerated shipments
The temperature data is read directly from the refrigeration unit and consistent data is provided from refrigeration units, data logs, and the actual temperature.
Temperature data is transmitted on an ongoing basis via the mobile network to LinkItAll’s server. Driver managers can monitor current temperatures on an ongoing basis, see which set-point has been set, and see the vehicles’ positions on the map. Drivers have their own app which displays the temperature and where they can set the set-point.
If there is a deviation and the temperature falls outside the desired range (set-point and threshold), an alarm will be triggered in LinkItAll. This alarm can be sent to the relevant recipient by SMS and/or e-mail.
Status data that LinkItAll can provide:
- Vehicle and trailer numbers
- Refrigeration unit number
- Refrigeration unit model
- Date and time
- GPS location
- Speed and direction
- Current temperature
- Whether the refrigeration unit is on or not
- Any set-point and threshold
- Labelling for electric or diesel operation
- Status (start/stop, continuous operation)
- Battery voltage
- Total number of hours in operation
- Total number of hours on standby
- Total number of hours
… and lots more
LinkItAll is more than just the monitoring and documenting of refrigerated shipments. Using GPS positioning, the system can be used for fleet management to ensure the optimal utilisation of your vehicles. There are several options in LinkItAll, depending on your choice of equipment and accessories:
- GPS positioning
- Monitoring of door contacts
- Theft protection
- Fuel consumption monitoring
