The GT Sense TM Advanced Reefer Automation Platform is the most advanced reefer remote monitoring and control system available today. Specifically designed for real-time reefer monitoring, GT Sense is a telematics system and web enabled platform. The system consists of a global cellular modem, and accurate GPS positioning capability, and several standard and optional sensors to monitor and control every aspect of a reefer in real-time. Installation uses a simple Bluetooth Mobile App and only takes minutes. Optional internal or external installation is available to best suit customer requirements. The GT Sense device can both be permanently installed on the reefer or as a temporary on-off solution. The system is compatible with all reefer types in the industry. GT Sense interfaces directly to the reefer micro-controller through either the RMM or data ports so complete status and operation of the reefer is monitored.
The GT Sense device communicates with global cellular network partners reporting precise location, and two-way reefer monitoring and control from anywhere in the world. When there is no cellular connection the system will store historical data and then transmit it when cellular service is restored. The ruggedized design will stand up to harsh environmental conditions and the test of time.
The GT Sense device has a myriad of internal sensors, but also has the ability to communicate with up to 64 independent external LoRa enabled wireless sensors. LoRa is latest emerging global IoT standard that has unparalleled transmission performance the through reefer walls and various dense cargoes that block most radio signals.
The GT Sense LoRa implementation will allow highly reliable in-reefer and in-cargo real-time sensor reading for the first time ever.
The LoRa wireless LAN provides robust communication between the GT Sense Device and GT Wireless Sensors Nodes, as well as infrastructure to allow seamless on-vessel communications, even far below decks. LoRa is the fastest growing new public network for IoT, with increasing coverage in many major cities in US and EU, and GT Sense will be able to interface with the global LoRa public networks as well.
Virtual reefer panels
GT Sense has a particular emphasis on reefer maintenance and extension of reefer life. Users can receive predictive maintenance alerts and map service plans into the GT Sense platform. Advanced display panels create a "Virtual Reefer Technician“ capability, being able to monitoring key internal systems and parameters remotely.
With the world’s first truly integrated reefer telematics system and wireless cargo sensors, GT Sense will change the way cold-chain operates on a global basis offering full visibility, superior compliance, reduction of load loss, streamlined operations, and reduced costs.
