Low-cost RFID Temperature Loggers Continue to Revolutionise the Coolchain
Memphis, Nov 29, 2007. Intelligent Devices Inc. (a subsidiary of smart packaging experts Information Mediary Corp.) in partnership with Evidencia LLP, is pleased to announce the immediate commercial and worldwide availability of the Log-ic® ThermProbeRFT (log-ic.biz; www.evidencia.biz), the only passive Radio-Frequency and wireless probed temperature recorder available in the world. Log-ic ThermProbeRF combines the wireless benefits and accuracy of RFID. Log-ic ThermProbeRF is an extension to our Radio Frequency (RFID) temperature logger line for cold chain management, including the Log-ic Tracker, Log-ic ThermAssureRF and Log-ic ThermAssureRF Dry-Ice.
For 12 months prior to its official release Log-ic ThermProbeRF was extensively tested by many customers and labs. Aside from its obvious wireless benefits and the ability to check and download the entire time & temperature history of sealed boxes or pallet centers, the Log-ic ThermProbeRF offers a neutral form factor (flat as a credit card) for better stacking and less breakage versus other non-wireless probed temperature recorders as well as an extremely fast response time and the ability to scan actual temperatures on the fly, thus combining the benefits of a pulp thermometer and of a recorder. Additionally, our wireless solution is generally less costly, faster and requiring less labor than other standard probed temperature loggers.
The Log-ic ThermProbeRF logger offers custom programming with time and temperature alarm thresholds, easy-to-use yet powerful software analysis. Combined with the CertiScan portable RFID reader, the system provide an efficient way to monitor a wide range of products, from salmon or pineapple or banana core temperatures or dry ice shipments of valuable pharmaceuticals.
The entire line of Log-ic temperature RFID loggers will be presented at the IDTech Active RFID & RTLS conference and exhibition in Dallas, Dec 4-6, 2007.
Log-ic Thermassure RF Loggers are light (only 6 g, 5 cm square small, and 3 mm thin) RFID sensor tags capable of maintaining a 4000 point temperature log in its onboard memory. It is offered in calibration ranges from ± 0.2 to ± 1 Centigrade, both as single-trip disposable as well as re-usable versions. Log-ic Thermassure RF Loggers can be programmed and their data collected via the CertiScan wireless 13.56 MHz RFID solution. "Log-ic Thermassure RF Loggers are the only qualified RFID temperature loggers eligible for airfreight under FAA rules" states Dr. Jean-Pierre Emond, Director of the Center for Food Distribution and Retailing at the University of Florida.
A handheld data collection device with up to a 400 meter range from any assigned base station is being previewed and made available to select customers for the first time at this event. Log-ic Thermassure RF Loggers and CertiScan RFID reader systems are available for commercial orders now.
