Timestrip intros new technology indicator platform

July 22, 2022
The UK-based company’s Timestrip neo supports a series of single-use electronic devices suitable for pack-level monitoring of time and temperature.

Timestrip recently introduced a new electronic indicator technology designed for highly versatile operation at low cost. The Timestrip neo is a platform for a series of single-use electronic indicators suitable for pack-level monitoring with both time and multiple temperature settings.

The Timestrip neo can be specified in a wide range of temperatures for both ascending and descending alerts, and for different time durations, the Cambridge, U.K.-based company said. If any of the set conditions are breached, a system of flashing LEDs provides clear information to the user. A standard configuration is available from stock.

“Timestrip neo technology opens up a new avenue of possibilities for Timestrip,” said Gabriel McGlynn, chairman of Timestrip. “Partnering with electronic design and manufacturing specialists Holtronic Ltd to design the Timestrip neo platform has enabled us to offer a completely new series of products to our clients.”

The small form factor of the micro-weight Timestrip neo, and its ease of use, make it well-suited for widespread use on packages in the pharmaceutical, health care, food, and high-value manufacturing sectors. Time and temperature integration also can be specified so that acceptable time limits are reduced at elevated temperatures, helping Timestrip neo protect goods such as perishable foodstuffs that deteriorate faster at higher temperatures, Timestrip added.

The design provides monitoring at three temperatures and shows the cumulative time above a specific temperature level. For example, in the standard configuration, a descending temperature that reaches 2 degrees C will cause an LED to flash; another LED will light when this drops as low as minus-0.5 degrees C. A third set of LEDs show when the temperature has exceeded 8 degrees C for two, four, six, or eight hours.

A unique serial number is included on every unit to provide traceability as part of a quality control system.

“The Timestrip neo platform technology is complementary to liquid-based indicators, and offers higher accuracy while maintaining the low cost, small-form solutions that customers need,” said Nora Murphy, commercial director at Holtronic. “The small size and cost effectiveness of Timestrip neo are common benefits across the series of products.”
