Smartrac Showcases RFID, NFC, IoT Temperature Sensor Portfolio

Smartrac recently presented its latest portfolio of temperature-sensing, cold-chain-monitoring products and solutions at the 15th Annual Cold Chain Global Forum, held last month in Chicago, Ill.

As the demand for global industrial logistics grows, temperature-controlled applications are rapidly evolving in parallel, according to Smartrac. Therefore, the company has developed products and solutions intended to enable a trusted cold chain by sensing temperature and moisture levels, logging and indicating temperatures, and providing authenticity and traceability.

During the event, Smartrac showcased its Temperature Logger NFC sensor, a battery-powered label solution for logging data in temperature-control supply chain applications. The Temperature Logger NFC can be read via a smartphone app that allows rapid mobile data control and analysis, helping customers make informed decisions regarding shipment quality, inventory and logistics.

By measuring and recording temperature readings during the transport of sensitive items, Smartrac reports, the new sensor complements its portfolio of temperature indicators. Providing RFID-based sensors and the ability to manage product-related data via the company's Smart Cosmos enablement platform allows customers to leverage the range of opportunities offered by RFID technology and the Internet of Things.

"This year's Cold Chain Global Forum [was] the perfect occasion for Smartrac to introduce our latest sensor product and IoT-based data unification and authentication capabilities to the public," said Ted Danhauser, Smartrac's VP of sales for the Americas, in a prepared statement. "Building end-to-end trust into a chain of custody for cold-chain market players is our ultimate goal."
