Timestrip introduces first multiple-use indicator

April 12, 2024
New neo Multi time and temperature indicator with reset prevention device can be used up to five times before it is discarded.

Timestrip recently introduced what it says is the first multiple-use temperature indicator.

The Timestrip neo Multi is an electronic temperature and time indicator that can be used up to five times before discarding it. This resettable feature reduces cost per use, simplifies inventory control, and represents a move toward sustainability, decreasing waste by up to 80%, the company maintained.

Early adopters of the indicator include the “food-served-on-the-move” sector, i.e. air, road, and rail operators who need to monitor the storage conditions of food served in transit. By tracking the conditions experienced by products at unit or pack level, passenger safety can be safeguarded, and unnecessary food waste avoided.

“Following the enthusiastic reception for the Timestrip neo range after its introduction 18 months ago, we are delighted to introduce this further example of technology innovation,” Gabriel McGlynn, Timestrip chairman, said in a news release. “We expect strong interest from sectors [like] hospitals and pharmacies, as well as food and beverage.”

The new Multi uses a small reset device into which the indicator clips, and with a single button press, the indicator is ready for its next job. The number of uses is shown on the product by a set of LEDs. Accidental resetting or tampering with the indicator is prevented by requiring use of the special reset device.

In common with the rest of the neo range, the Multi is robust, small and lightweight, making it suitable for attaching to small products, the company said. Scanning a QR code on the face of the neo Multi allows access to the individual serial number record for full auditability.

Custom variants of the neo Multi can be specified to address specific challenges in temperature and time monitoring.
