End-to-end temperature control to eliminate excursions

The CSafe RKN delivers precise temperature management from 4°C to 25°C, offering superior temperature mapping, operational efficiency, and battery life compared with competing active solutions—ensuring precise temperature control without excursions.

The CSafe RKN offers unparalleled precision control and temperature assurance with intelligent programming, patented ThermoCor® Vacuum-Insulated Panels (VIP) technology, and long-lasting battery life of more than 130 hours. With a novel radiant heating and compressor-driven cooling system, the CSafe RKN autonomously recirculates conditioned air throughout the cargo chamber to fully encapsulate payloads and provide optimal protection from the temperature risks of long-duration shipments in extreme ambient conditions. Its innovative Temperature Management System (TMS) provides sophisticated data tracking that continuously verifies payload temperatures in transit and offers a detailed data readout that can be conveniently downloaded via USB.

Backed by a worldwide service and support network, the CSafe RKN delivers on CSafe’s promise of exceptional quality and is available with a variety of flexible leasing options.
