How it works

Inventure Reefer Box acquires data directly from the Thermo King and Carrier refrigerators reefer unit. The solution does not require the manufacturer’s telematics interface (i.e., iBox) or any additional sensor installation. Standard output CAN interface provided by a contactless connection to the unit’s internal network, collect, process and forward information to telematics systems with the support of standard High-Speed CAN (FMS Standard compatible) output protocol.
To avoid incorrect connections and any vehicle related warranty issues the Inventure Reefer Box is recommended to be combined with Inventure CL-CAN contactless sensor.
