Smartrac to Showcase Temperature Sensor Portfolio

Smartrac has announced that it will present its portfolio of temperature-sensing products and solutions at the 15th annual Cold Chain Global Forum, being held in Chicago, Ill. According to the company, the products can be used for cold-chain monitoring applications.

As the demand for global industrial logistics grows, temperature-controlled applications are rapidly evolving in parallel. To that end, Smartrac has developed products and solutions 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 will showcase its Temperature Logger NFC sensor, a battery-powered label solution for accurately logging temperature data in temperature-controlled supply-chain applications. Temperature Logger NFC can be read by a smartphone app that allows rapid mobile data control and analysis, the company indicates, thereby helping customers to make informed decisions regarding shipment quality, inventory and logistics. The new sensor measures and records temperature readings during the transport of sensitive items.

Providing RFID-based sensors and the ability to manage product-related data via the company's Smart Cosmos enablement platform, Smartrac reports, will allow customers to leverage RFID technology and the Internet of Things. "This year's Cold Chain Global Forum is 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."
