DeltaTrak, a producer of cold chain management, food safety, and environmental monitoring products, has released new FlashLink USB PDF reusable data loggers.
DeltaTrak’s new line of reusable loggers are cost effective solutions for accurately monitoring and recording temperature conditions in cold storage warehouses, walk-in coolers, freezers, processing, packing, and staging areas.
The company says temperature verification is an important part of effective facility, equipment, and process management.
The data loggers provide documentation required for HACCP, FDA, FSMA (the Food Safety Modernization Act), and other regulatory compliance.
Four models are available – an internal sensor, an external sharp probe, an external blunt probe, and an external blunt probe that measures temperatures as low as minus 80 degrees Celsius.
The reusable electronic temperature loggers contain on-board software that generates PDF reports with temperature graphs, tables, summary statistics, and alarm information. The logger serial number is embedded in each report for complete traceability to ensure the data is linked to the specific area it was monitoring.
The initial set up of FlashLink USB PDF Reusable Data Loggers uses FlashPDF Program Manager software to allow users to configure parameters including sample rate, start time, delay start, alarm delay, plus upper and lower alarm limits.
Data is downloaded with the on-board software and does not require FlashPDF Program Manager.
According to a company news release, “The plug-and-play feature allows personnel on site to have quick access to temperature history reports without needing to use any software or special reading device, and without involvement of their corporate IT department.”
Information from the reports is used to make critical decisions for improving processes and cold chain logistics by identifying trends and patterns of temperature abuse. The data loggers can help customers ensure product quality, integrity and safety.
