Lodam Star Cool Controller

Refrigerated container operators depend on reliable and economical equipment.

Based on the Lodam Multi Controller 500-series controller board (LMC 500) the Star Cool reefer unit controller lives up to the increasing demands for high quality as well as low operational costs, easy and user-friendly functionality and optimized serviceability. In fact the customers of Maersk Container Industry containers have achieved lower operation costs and energy savings of up to 30% by using Star Cool.

The Star Cool has a unique humidity control system thus minimizing weight loss and securing even better products upon delivery. And the Star Cool controller sets new standards for user-friendliness and safe operation.

A graphic user interface and built-in pre-trip inspection, automatic components control and an advanced diagnostics system, ensure easy and reliable control of the refrigeration unit. All data storage in the controller is directly accessible via remote monitoring.

Lodam StarVent Controller

Some commodities benefit from a high level of ventilation, which eliminates condensation. Based on the Lodam Multi Controller 200-series controller board (LMC 200), the StarVent controller keeps the products dry and reduces or eliminates the risk of mould and fungi development.

Controlling the air flow (high and low speed) and performing phase detection, the StarVent is equipped with an alarm system and a datalog module storing all relevant operational data. All data stored in the controller is directly accessible via remote monitoring.

Lodam StarLog

The Lodam StarLog system is used for the retrieval, downloading, monitoring and storage of data from Lodam’s transport cooling controllers.

StarLog consists of a PDA-terminal, with a windows-based, full graphical color touch display, as well as a web-based terminal program enabling internet-based communication from the PDA to the database storage, and a database used for data storage and data analysis.

The handheld PDA is designed for heavy use industrial environments, being able to operate from -30ºC to +65ºC and IP-class 67 tight.
