IoT solutions company Cooltrax has introduced a next-generation Cooltrax TempTracker remote temperature monitoring solution that enables fleets to quickly and inexpensively achieve food safety compliance.
This advanced solution – backed by the comprehensive Cooltrax Fresh InTransit telematics platform – offers a wireless, plug-and-play option for remote temperature monitoring of all types 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 work seamlessly to 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 SMS text message alerts if temperatures fall out of acceptable, preset ranges.
The Cooltrax TempTracker portal also provides instant access to a variety of data points, tools and satellite mapping. The solution offers embedded motion detection and geofencing capabilities to automatically record trip start/stop, arrival times, and temperature readings in transit for a simple proof-of-delivery transaction.
The sensors, which offer 10-year battery life, are fully operational when received by the fleet and can be installed in minutes, functioning through a local gateway connected to 4G cellular networks.
The totally wireless system, which installs in just minutes, will be showcased at the Cooltrax booth (no. 737) during this week’s International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) Distribution Solutions Conference in Tampa, Fla.
