Oceasoft unveils wireless temperature tracker
Montpellier, France, April 2, 2014
Oceasoft, a leading designer and developer of temperature and environmental parameter monitoring solutions in the cold-chain, life science, and food safety fields, has unveiled a wireless temperature tracker that connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth.
The Oceasoft Emerald, which is slightly larger than a wristwatch, monitors temperature-sensitive good during transit and in storage.
It can store up to 4,000 temperature readings and does not require any dedicated computer equipment or complex installations, said a statement.
Oceasoft’s free EmeraldView application for the smartphone connects wireless via Bluetooth to programme Emerald devices, view data and optionally upload the information, including geolocation information provided by the smartphone to the cloud, where authorized parties can check the latest status.
Laurent Rousseau, president of Oceasoft, said: “Emerald solves a long-standing temperature monitoring challenge for the cold-chain industry. With temperature-sensitive goods transported by many different means, notably in trucks, airplanes, and refrigerated containers of all kinds, it is difficult to track temperature conditions and have access to the information during transit.
“Emerald leverages today’s widespread use of smartphones to read temperature data and push it to the cloud. This provides a point-by-point tracking solution similar to those offered by national and international shipping services, without any heavy infrastructure or dedicated equipment.”
The device can support temperature ranges up to -40-degree Celsius to +80-degree Celsius and integrates Bluetooth Smart technology for low-power devices. - TradeArabia News Service
