With an increasing demand for cold-chain supply chains Teltonika is offering the ability to monitor real-time information from freezer trailer thermographs. Each thermograph has an RS232 communication line where FMX640 devices can connect via COM1/COM2 port of the device. The solution is easy to install and to configure. This allows to monitor the main information of the freezer trailer such as Temperature, Fridge door status, Alarms, etc. and generate events according to your needs. For more information please refer to the installation manual below.
