ORBCOMM introduces latest reefer monitoring unit

ORBCOMM has announced the release of its latest reefer container monitoring system, the CT 3600.

The new system has been streamlined to help simplify installation, deployment and management of reefer IoT applications compared to previous versions, with installation support available via an iOS and Android app.

The CT 3600 is installed in and cabled from the reefer controller cabinet without the need for drilling, and features an internal rechargeable battery and wireless Bluetooth sensor support.

The company says that the unit works with refrigerated containers from all four major OEMs and is compliant with DCSA interoperability standards.

“Maritime IoT deployments can be a challenging experience for shipping lines. There are complex technology stacks and the sheer device count of mass deployments to worry about, not to mention third-party installation costs,” said Christian Allred, ORBCOMM SVP and GM of Maritime Logistics.

“The CT 3600—the most recent addition to our new reefer monitoring solution—makes building and managing an intelligent connected container fleet easier than ever.”

“When people think of refrigerated container transportation, they think of ORBCOMM. With this new reefer container monitoring solution, we’re continuing our legacy of innovation that started over thirty years ago, delivering world-class reefer technology that helps provide the data businesses need to make smart fleet decisions.”
