PakSense Releases New Cold-Chain Monitoring System

PakSense Inc., a vendor of environmental monitoring systems, has launched AutoSense, a means of delivering cold-chain temperature data to smartphones.

Typically installed in distribution centers or retail locations, the system is self-contained, utilizes cellular networks, and does not require support from I.T. departments for installation or maintenance. It allows receiving staff to make key decisions on quality and safety before products are unloaded, by consulting their smartphones. AutoSense components include PakSense Wireless Labels and AutoSense Readers. Labels are placed on perishable loads to monitor temperatures. Upon receipt of product, labels are auto-detected by the AutoSense Reader, and cold-chain data is automatically forwarded to pre-defined users via e-mail or text. Data delivered to the smartphone includes supplier name; product description; temperature alert condition; receiving location; high, low and average temperature, and a temperature graph. Data can also be forwarded to a central repository for carrier, supplier and route analysis.
