Thermo King T-1200r Whisper Pro with PIEK-certification and connectivity as standard is now in production


Thermo King®, a leader in transport temperature control solutions and a brand of Trane Technologies, announced that is started production of its latest, ultra-quiet single and multi-temperature T-1200R Whisper Pro refrigeration units. The T-1200R Whisper Pro are available in diesel-powered or optional hybrid versions and are PIEK[1] certified meeting the latest and most demanding noise regulations. The new models are also the first Thermo King truck reefers that feature telematics as standard, with 2 years of TracKing telematics contract included in the purchase price.

“Meeting the strictest noise regulations set by cities and regulators across our products to lower the impact on communities and drivers has always been one of priorities for Thermo King,” said Davide Previsdomini, product manager Truck at Thermo King. ”PIEK certification requirements have become stricter in recent years and older certificates expired end of March 2023. We’re proud that the new T-1200R Whisper Pro is, as of today, the only diesel refrigeration unit for trucks that is PIEK certified. Our customers can now benefit from the highest cooling capacity in the truck range and keep effectively operating within cities with low noise areas.”

The PIEK certified T-1200R Whisper Pro units deliver class leading performance in accordance with ATP (Accord Transport Perrisable) standards, offering customers the quickest pull-down during pre-trip preparations and no compromise on cooling capacity in high-speed mode.

The T-1200R Whisper Pro features BlueBox telematics mounted as standard and is using geo-fencing to automatically switch into quiet, PIEK certified mode when entering a pre-defined low noise-emission zone. This allows the transporters to operate unrestricted day and night schedules with the peace of mind that the unit complies with the noise regulations in the given area. In case of the Hybrid model, when the power from the truck is available, the unit switches to electric drive to further reduce emissions.

Dedicated application allows to flash load all geofences around PIEK zones and Low Emission Zones (LEZ) onto the controller during configuration and add timeframes during which the unit must respect the LEZ and noise emission regulations.
