Emerson introduces new monitoring systems
Emerson has introduced two new devices, one for general use and one for more targeted and exact temperature measurements.
The UltraNFC Paksense tags monitor time and temperature of perishable products during distribution and storage. Labels are flat and transfer time/temperature data via short-range near field communications (NFC) utilizing NFC-enabled Android phones and tablets. Label data is immediately available on the screen of the Android device. UltraNFC Labels give users the freedom to use Android devices to download data.
UltraNFC Labels use a temperature sensor that enables them to take a surface reading of the object to which they are attached. This provides a closer approximation of actual product temperature versus the general ambient readings provided by bulkier recorders, according to Emerson. Labels sample temperature every minute for accurate temperature reads and are encased in waterproof packaging. Further, each label is NIST traceable. Labels do not require ongoing calibration to maintain accuracy, according to the company. All labels are manufactured in ISO-9001 registered facilities.
The SmartTraxx GO is a new tool on offer from Emerson for the produce and transportation industries. The GO allows the same real-time data access as the original SmartTraxx and SmartTraxx Portable, but in a more convenient size.
To use, pull the battery tab on the GO and toss in with your load.The SmartTraxx GO is a one time use product. The GO may be returning to Emerson for a rebate. Emerson then recycles the batteries.
