Pleasanton, Calif. - DeltaTrak® announces the release of its new FlashLink Real-Time Monitoring Solution at the United Fresh Expo, Booth 3827, McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois. 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. Reliable 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 which indicates rough handling of a load, and a light sensor indicates door openings which either means a shipment arrived and is being received, or it can reveal security issues if this occurs while the shipment is still in transit.
The single use FlashLink Real-Time Logger is packaged in DeltaTrak’s unique and highly durable 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. The FlashLink Real-Time In-Transit Logger is a great solution for anyone that needs up to the minute information on the quality of the products being shipped.
