The TC130/131 TCU requires only minimum pressure based on desired temperature set point instead of a predefined 15 or 55 psi.


If a TCU experiences a momentary or even sustained pressure drop, the unit will temporarily decrease temperature until pressure is restored instead of instantly shutting down.
