Reading Temperatures Inside Out!

ShockWatch Inc has announced a new range of temperature recorders that are compact, durable, and have the ability to read temperature data without opening the packaging. The TrekView® temperature recorder offers wireless data.  This allows the device to be placed either within, or outside, any container providing monitoring flexibility across the cold chain.

The recorder  is designed to be low-cost and help reduce errors in the cold chain by alerting manufacturers, handlers and transport personnel when a product has been exposed to temperature conditions beyond a specified threshold.

No larger than a box of matches the recorder comes in four styles, each designed for a different requirement and,  using simple return logistics,  cost is less than two dollars per use:

TrekView External USB is a water resistant, multi-use temperature recorder that allows for fast data downloads using the integrated RF antenna or an external USB  port on any PC. Designed for reading temperature at any point along a journey.

TrekView Internal USB is a water proof, multi-use temperature recorder that allows for fast data downloads using the integrated RFID antenna or an internal mini USB port on any PC. Ideal for high moisture shipments.

TrekView for Pharmaceuticals is a water resistant (NEMA 4 sealed), multi-use temperature recorder with an integrated ribbon probe for measuring temperature inside of validated pharmaceutical packaging without the need to break the packaging open.It  can be used when the recorder must be placed on the outside of containers for data reading in the field due to metal packaging components blocking an RFID signal.

TrekView for Food  is a water resistant (NEMA 4 sealed), multi-use temperature recorder with an integrated stainless steel probe for monitoring core temperatures of food or other products. Used when core temperatures are more important than ambient temperature conditions.

The unit can be read wirelessly, enabling data to be downloaded through packaging without sacrificing its three year battery life. It has a temperature measurement range of -30°C to 75°C and has software programmable threshold limits. Data can be read or received at any point along the product’s journey and automatically generates a PDF report of recorded tag data. Multicolour LEDs are on every device to alert a receiver of an issue, so products can be held for review.
