Thermo King Adds Connectivity to the UT Series of Sub-Frame Mount Truck Refrigeration Units

Thermo King®, a leader in temperature-controlled transportation solutions and a brand of Trane Technologies, announced the introduction of new connectivity features for self-contained sub-frame mount truck refrigeration units. Now, Thermo King UT series units can receive more information in real time thanks to the TK BlueBox communication device and connectivity technology.


The TK BlueBox communication device and Bluetooth® connectivity offer full 24-hour visibility of the unit and load conditions, remote monitoring and proactive control:


Bluetooth allows users who are within the connection coverage area to remotely manage defrosting, pre-trip, reference point and further operating settings.

The unit can also be accessed and managed remotely from anywhere in the world via an Internet connection as part of Thermo King's TracKing™ offering.

The TK BlueBox telematics system can be accessed remotely with the free TK Reefer app from a smartphone or Bluetooth-enabled device. In this way, bidirectional communication is possible that allows the management of the unit in real time and access to fundamental data, in order to ensure that the load is constantly protected.


“TK BlueBox was already available for T-series units. It is now also compatible with the sub-frame mount UT series range” said Davide Previsdomini, Thermo King Product Manager. "This allows fleet managers and drivers to remotely access the unit's critical data and receive information in real time, ensuring that the load is always protected and the unit operates in the most efficient way. If you notice something strange, it is possible to intervene instantly and avoid any negative consequences on the load".


Thermo King UT Series units already in operation, including UT SPECTRUM, UT XTREME HIGH AMBIENT and UT-Hybrid models, can begin to take advantage of Thermo King's Connected Solutions offering, thanks to a quick installation of TK BlueBox at a Thermo King® dealer.
