Live reefer data - everywhere

 

Most shipping companies has tens of thousands of reefers in operation worldwide. Every reefer generates data that the company would like to use, but with such a large fleet in global operation, this data collection and handling is close to impossible. Their reefers go through trucking, terminals and partner vessels where companies will need to pay others to retrieve the data.

Reduced M&R cost - increased utilization

With Sekstant you can monitor your operating reefer fleet in real-time, allowing you to monitor if the reefers are set to correct temperature and cooling as expected. With Star Cools Intelligent Trip Inspection you can decide which reefers are ready to use.

  • Read setpoint

Sekstant Modem

We will be releasing a base range of functions in 2019, but we have plenty more in the pipeline. Additional functions will be developed in close cooperation with our customers, which will enable us to provide data-driven packages to support specific customer requirements

Anders Holm, Global Head of Sales and Marketing

The upcoming launch of Maersk Container Industry’s (MCI) Sekstant™ Global Guidance system for reefer digitalisation is the company’s most significant technological breakthrough since the introduction of its Star Cool reefer.

Drawing on many years of involvement in reefer connectivity, Sekstant™ provides container operators with accurate data at any point along the transportation chain. 

Robust and secure

The key to the concept’s effectiveness is that it stays online, using a centralised cloud architecture. The system is enabled by a state-of-the-art Smart Edge device that includes wide-band 4G LTE modem connectivity with global coverage. 

Everything is incorporated into a single device and sharing one power supply with the reefer controller. Using the robust Linux OS platform, the device features Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth for mobile communication. 

Depending on the range of services requested, the standard functions like GPS location, temperature readings and alarms can be expanded to include G-shock recording, ITI diagnostics stamps, replacing manual pre-trip inspections (PTI’s) and potentially automated government approvals, as well as remotely activated trip preparation. 

Data capturing is used to support warranty handling while remote Controlled Atmosphere (CA) readings, sensor alarms and temperature control protect product quality. To optimise fleet management operations, Sekstant™ will even offer opportunities for geofencing, equipment condition status and reefer lifetime reports.
