Cooltrax simplifies food safety compliance

Sept. 16, 2022
New TempTracker remote temperature-monitoring solution provides ‘quick and inexpensive’ management for cold chain fleets.

Cooltrax recently introduced its next-generation TempTracker remote temperature-monitoring solution, which enables fleets to achieve food safety compliance “quickly and inexpensively.”

The all-wireless, plug-and-play system, which is backed by the Cooltrax Fresh InTransit telematics platform, installs in “minutes” and provides remote monitoring for all types of temperature-controlled climates, including trailers, fixed storage locations, and mixed and rental operations, the cold chain management company said.

“Cooltrax TempTracker helps eliminate the unnecessary costs and complexity associated with achieving FSMA compliance and meeting customer audit requirements,” said Mike Sharpe, president of Cooltrax North America.

The new TempTracker solution includes wireless microsensors that monitor return air temperatures in single or multiple trailer zones/compartments, Cooltrax said. The sensors work seamlessly to transmit data synchronously every 15 minutes to the application-configured, cloud-based TempTracker web portal. Automated reporting can be configured to prompt instant email and/or SMS text message alerts if temperatures fall out of acceptable, preset ranges.

The web portal also provides instant access to a variety of data points, tools, and satellite mapping, the company added. The solution offers embedded motion detection and geofencing capabilities to automatically record trip start/stop, arrival times, and temperature readings in transit for a simple proof-of-delivery transaction.

The sensors, which offer 10-year battery life, are fully operational when received by the fleet and function through a local gateway connected to 4G cellular networks.

“As cold-chain businesses begin to adapt to the insights and capabilities of this solution, we can scale the TempTracker solution to an even deeper, more intensely data-driven approach,” Sharpe said.
