PakSense Inc, provider of temperature recorders, announced at the recent Fruit Logistica annual convention the availability of the PakSense Ultra Wireless Label in the European markets.
The Ultra Wireless Label enables users to wirelessly download time and temperature information and analyze data before unloading a perishable product from a container. PakSense is taking pre-orders for labels, with projected delivery in March.
Ultra Wireless Labels are activated and applied to product or product packaging prior to shipping. At any point during distribution, the PakSense Ultra Wireless Reader can collect data from any label within a 100-meter/300-foot line of sight range or about 20-meter/60-foot obstructed range with the touch of a button.
Information from up to 30 labels can be downloaded at one time. Time and temperature data can be examined on the screen of the Ultra Wireless Reader immediately after download, which improves reaction times and helps users make quick decisions on product quality. Detailed information from the reader, including temperature summary information and alert notifications, can then be downloaded to a PC for e-mailing and permanent storage.
“Our line of wireless labels has been in use and tested by suppliers and retailers throughout the United States for more than a year,” said David Light, PakSense chief executive officer.
Ultra Wireless Labels are flat, about the size of a credit card, and are encased in packaging that is safe for food contact. Environmentally friendly, they take up less space and have a lower carbon foot print than other products. The labels can also be used to easily monitor cold cases in retail stores.
