Are you looking for a solution for transporting your temperature sensitive goods under concise temperature conditions?
Do you want to monitor your cold-chain supply process?
Low power temperature monitoring is a monitoring mode in which an IoT low power data logger is placed in your packages or refrigerator. The logger is able to log the temperature on short intervals of time and to transmit the readings on another transmission interval. In addition to that the logger is able to transmit an immediate alarm in case certain low or high temperature conditions are bridged.
ThingsLog data loggers are low power devices and they can work that way for many years without replacing batteries, along with very limited maintenance.
That use case is extremely useful for temperature controlled logistics solution providers who need a low power temperature logging and alerting solution.
It is especially suitable in pharmaceutical businesses where vaccines and medicines have to be transported and contained under control temperature environment in vaccine refrigerators.
How does it work?
The data loggers of ThingsLog are low power devices with a couple of micro ampere power consumption. Compared to them, the typical analog sensor for temperature, humidity, pressure and many others have consumption of a couple of mili amperes of 100s of times more than the data logger.
So the only way to do the measurements in a low power way is to have a data logger able to provide power from internal or external battery to the sensor for very short period of time.
ThingsLog data loggers have a configurable setting time parameter that specifies the time required by the sensor to be able to stabilize itself and provide an accurate measurement output.
Saying all that the logger is providing power to the sensor for a couple of miliseconds just enough for it to do the measurement.
Once the reading is obtained it is stored in the internal memory of the logger. The loggers have configurable transmission interval. Once it is reached the device wakes up and transmits all the gathered sensor readings towards the ThingsLog platform.
What can be monitored in a low power way?
- Temperature in vaccine refrigerators
- Temperature and humidity in cold-chain logistics
- Temperature in refrigerators in pharmacies, hospitals and General practitioners
- Temperature controlled vehicles
- Temperature controlled cold rooms
The solution is useful for:
- Logistics companies
- General practitioners
- Vaccine carriers;
- Hotels and restaurants
- Food suppliers
- Wine carriers
- Anybody else that would like to monitor temperature for pleasure or for business 🙂
