Cold chain solutions provider Cooltrax has introduced a next-generation Cooltrax TempTracker remote temperature monitoring solution that enables fleets to achieve food safety compliance. The wireless system will be showcased during this week’s International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) Distribution Solutions Conference in Tampa, Florida.
The solution, backed by the Cooltrax Fresh InTransit telematics platform, offers a wireless, plug-and-play option for remote temperature monitoring of temperature-controlled climates, including trailers, fixed storage locations, and mixed and rental operations.
The Cooltrax TempTracker solution includes wireless microsensors that monitor return air temperatures in single or multiple trailer zones/compartments. The sensors transmit data synchronously every 15 minutes to the application-configured, cloud-based Cooltrax TempTracker web portal. Automated reporting can be configured to prompt instant email and/or SMS text message alerts if temperatures fall out of acceptable, preset ranges.
The Cooltrax TempTracker web portal also provides access to data points, tools, and satellite mapping. The solution offers embedded motion detection and geofencing capabilities to record trip start/stop, arrival times, and temperature readings in transit for a proof-of-delivery transaction.
The sensors, which offer 10-year battery life, are fully operational when received by the fleet functioning through a local gateway connected to 4G cellular networks.
“As cold-chain businesses begin to adapt to the insights and capabilities of this solution, we can scale the TempTracker solution to an even deeper, more intensely data-driven approach,” said Mike Sharpe, president of Cooltrax North America in the statement.
