New DeltaTrak logger offers real-time monitoring
DeltaTrak debuted its new FlashLink Real-Time Monitoring Solution at the United Fresh Expo in Chicago. This system combines the FlashLink Real-Time In-Transit Logger with a 24/7 cloud service. The logger records temperature, humidity, shock, light and location and sends data via GSM cellular network to a web account. Up-to-the-minute information is accessed with a standard web browser using a PC or any internet-ready device.
“The FlashLink Real-Time In-Transit Logger is especially beneficial to shippers because they don’t have to wait for a receiver to open vehicle doors, find the logger, download it and email the trip history report,” according to Fred Wu, president and CEO of DeltaTrak. “Information is automatically uploaded to the cloud and shared between shippers and receivers, and critical cold chain management decisions can be made right away.”
The stored data is also available for traceability, audits, HACCP documentation and FSMA compliance.
Two logger configurations are available, a domestic model with a 25-day logging duration and data uploaded every 15 minutes, and an export model with a 100-day logging duration and data uploaded every hour. Shippers can customize high/low alarm settings, and alerts are automatically sent when out-of-range conditions occur. The logger also measures shock and a light sensor indicates door openings.
The single use FlashLink Real-Time Logger is packaged in DeltaTrak’s logger sleeve which provides protection for the device and maximizes reliable operational characteristics. Using GSM cellular data transmission technology, the FlashLink Real-Time Logger has been demonstrated to reliably transmit from within steel shipping containers and refrigerated trailers making it ideal for use in most transportation applications, according to DeltaTrak.
