DeltaTrak, Pleasanton, Calif., added a new data security feature to its FlashLink BLE (Bluetooth low energy) wireless monitoring solution.

This smartphone app sends information from a mobile device to the BLE web application, where it can be viewed remotely by authorized users.

This solution is ideal for 24/7 facility monitoring, pre-cooling operations and delivery routes, providing customers secure access to data, immediate alert notifications and reports in PDF and CSV formats.

The FlashLink BLE logger helps suppliers maintain continuous visibility of temperature and humidity during facility monitoring and pre-cooling operations. It is especially ideal for 24/7 facility monitoring, such as cold storage warehouses, distribution centers, greenhouses, temperature-controlled processing, packing and staging areas.

With the FlashLink BLE wireless monitoring solution, pre-cooling operations will improve efficiency, increase pallet throughput and extend product shelf life. The loggers monitor produce in cooling tunnels, and when required temperatures are reached, alerts are sent via email or SMS notifications. Instead of pre-cooling based on time and relying on staff to take pulp temperature, this automates tracking and provides real-time temperature conditions during the process. Data can be analyzed personnel to identify strengths and weaknesses of the operation, and assure that products are adequately cooled.

For delivery routes, receivers can also read temperature history data from the FlashLink BLE logger without opening vehicle doors or locating the logger inside the truck. As soon as a vehicle arrives, the smartphone application accesses data from the logger from up to ~100 feet away, so information is available immediately upon arrival.

FlashLink BLE logger settings are customizable, including device name, logging interval and high/low alarm limits.
