Protect Food and Fruit Shipments All The Way From 'Farm to Fork'
CHESTERLAND OH- Current estimates reveal that approximately 50% of global food production is lost due to widespread inefficiencies in the transportation, distribution and storage of perishables. Therefore, the safety of food and fruit shipments often hinges upon meeting and maintaining temperature compliance regulations. More FDA and USDA regulatory changes are slated for this year, forecasting greater responsibility for food processors to prevent contamination rather than simply discovering already-tainted food. This trend is creating a greater need for accurate, constant temperature monitoring of perishables, chilled food and other temperature-sensitive cargo. CAS DataLoggers and ESCORT Data Loggers have partnered to offer the most cost-effective solution with the ESCORT Intelligent Mini-Single Use Temperature Logger with Internal Sensor.
This compact data logger carries a large LCD display that measures temperatures with internal sensor ranges of -40°C to +65°C (-40°F to 149°F) at a high accuracy of ±0.5°C (1.0°F), providing strong reliability and precision at low cost. The Intelligent Mini is rated IP51 for high durability and offers a programmable start function. The display indicates an easy-to-read alarm as soon as food temperatures have exceeded set ranges, reducing waste and helping to meet delivery and quality commitments. Customizable alarm settings ensure that the temperature data logger also notifies personnel of temperature fluctuations during times of inactivity, such as weekends or late evenings. This helps deal with a potential problem before it can further threaten product quality. The Intelligent Mini also features a generous memory capacity of 1868 readings and a sampling frequency of 1 to 255 minutes.
ESCORT's slim 70-gram Intelligent Mini can be easily downloaded to a PC or a chart recorder via a serial or USB/serial port connection without requiring any special interface hardware. The data logger's chart recorder holds 553 sets of recorded data, useful for large inventories where there's little time to download each logger. Free ESCORT Console software is included for easy setup and operation. A 24-month warranty (excluding batteries) is provided and battery life averages 1-2 years.
Providing temperature monitoring and alarm notification, the Intelligent Mini is an effective component in a secure end-to-end cold chain that meets the latest regulations, protects food and fruit shipments from the factory to the consumer, and stays well within any budget.
