Blulog expands its NFC cold chain monitor range
Its RF (Radio Frequency) data loggers enable remote and real-time monitoring of cold rooms, warehouses, refrigerated trucks and other storage areas of temperature-sensitive products such as milk and dairy.
The company will show these, and other examples of its cold chain monitor range at the AIPIA (Active & Intelligent Packaging Industry Association) Active & Intelligent Packaging World Congress and Hackathon 2017 in Amsterdam from November 2-3.
Jeremy Laurens, sales and marketing director, Blulog, said the latest data loggers can now transmit temperature data via radio frequency to a next generation hub, whose range, in free space, can reach up to 1,000 meters.
“The new, high performance hubs are also less energy-consuming and can be provided with a 24 hour backup battery,” he said.
The BluConsole app enables real-time, simultaneous or remote monitoring using any kind of device connected to the Internet: smartphones, computers or PDAs (Pile Driving Analyzer).
In case of temperature excursions clients receive alerts via email or SMS.
“Some new functionalities have been added to this app recently. So it is now possible to see the temperature data expressed either in Celsius or Fahrenheit. And the ID number of the logger can now be linked to the ID number of the transporting vehicle,” added Laurens.
“PDF reports were also modified: the graph is now bigger and there is more logistic information, as well as location data. A new model for a data logger with external probe was also added. And users can choose between different language versions, including Spanish or Portuguese.”
A maintenance mode allows deactivation of alerts during given time periods (for instance during the night). There are also options for personalization.
Blulog launched an upgraded version of its remote, real-time monitoring system last month.
