The CT 3600 is installed in and cabled from the reefer controller cabinet without drilling to help avoid potential container damage, reduce third-party installation costs and deter device theft or tampering. It features a long-lasting internal rechargeable battery, wireless Bluetooth sensor support, works with refrigerated containers from all four major OEMs and is compliant with DCSA interoperability standards.
