The ST 1805 has a lifting capacity of 18,500 pounds per column. Each column is equipped with a control box to enable the col- umns to operate individually, in pairs or as a complete set. The columns are all interchangeable and can be used Remote panels enable easy access to reefer controls C arrier Transicold now has APX re- mote panels that can be mounted in easily accessible locations to con- trol transport refrigeration units. The panels are available in two configura- tions: flush-mount, for mounting inside the trailer near the rear doors, so distribution center workers can configure the reefer unit by walking into the trailer from a loading dock; and surface-mount, for use on trailer exteriors, typically at the right-front of the trailer, providing safer curbside access for the operator when the rig is parked along a traffic corridor. Operators can view all the refrigera- tion unit data and settings on the remote panel display. They may also select preset IntelliSet configurations or perform other functions, such as manually changing temperature set points and toggling between con- tinuous and stop/start modes. They can also use the panels to turn the refrigeration unit on and off, defrost the unit or run a pre-trip diagnostic routine.
