The Future is Here: Temperature Monitoring

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 4, 2019 — Wireless environmental monitoring systems are used in a wide range of industries. Beacon installs wireless temperature sensors that are linked to a proprietary system, which uses Amazon Web Services to process more than 480 million sensor updates each day.

It’s a completely cloud-based monitoring solution designed for mass scalability. The sensor device, which is the brains of the local monitoring capability, connects with the cloud via Wi-Fi, PoE, or a standard Ethernet connection. That device has a couple of ports for probes, which connect into the sensor device. The probes are mounted inside the refrigerator or freezer and inserted into a bottle containing a glycol or wax solution that emulates the contents for monitoring, rather than ambient air.

The sensors regularly log and report temperatures, and when an excursion from predefined ranges occurs. When there is a temperature excursion, the cloud-based system sends out alerts based on user preferences. You can ask for email, SMS text or voice call alerts—or all three. Users can also configure alert rules that specify who gets notified of an excursion depending on the time and location.

All of this is documented in a time-stamped record, which identifies the person who reviewed the temperature excursion. The user also can add comments, documenting what led to the excursion and what was done to mitigate it. That’s extremely important for the FDA and regulatory agencies.

All of the probes employ CertiTrak Calibration Certification Tracking, which links a unique certificate to each individual probe. The certificate provides data required for compliance with CDC guidelines and other authorities having jurisdiction. Beacon Communications installs devices that use RTD [resistance temperature detector] platinum probes, which have the highest accuracy and the least amount of drift over time. The sensors are solid-state, and the probes all store information about when they were put into service and when they were calibrated. Instead of looking at a spreadsheet to maintain data on when your probes went into service and need to be calibrated or changed, our system tracks it all and takes the burden off the end user.

Stay compliant and protect your inventory and your business with a temperature monitoring system. Beacon works with the best to provide monitoring systems that completely eliminate the need for manual temperature monitoring and data logging. Call 303-750-6500 or email to learn more today!
