Unlike in the past, companies in the cold chain sector no longer have to interact physically with products to assess quality, thanks to technologically advanced tools like Bluetooth humidity and temperature data loggers from Marathon Products.
- The time wasted for companies waiting to physically interact with products to determine their quality can have a bigger impact on their bottom line.
- Bluetooth data loggers from Marathon Products can subvert these damaging consequences.
- The benefits of using our Bluetooth data loggers include wireless data transmission, access to reliable data, continuous temperature monitoring, convenience, and regulatory compliance.
Companies in the cold chain sector deal with perishable goods that can go bad or get contaminated by even the slightest temperature variations during transit and storage. Most companies rely on analog temperature and humidity measuring devices to avert this issue, which requires human personnel for monitoring.
The result is often time wastage and potential for losses due to negligence. The good news is that Bluetooth temperature and humidity data loggers from Marathon Products can help alleviate some of these issues. But how?
This article will explain what Bluetooth data loggers are, where you can use them, and the benefits they present to the cold chain sector.
What are Bluetooth data loggers, and how do they work?
Bluetooth data loggers are wireless, radio-based devices that transmit information through ISM frequency bands. These devices collect, store, and share data wirelessly via Bluetooth technology.
They can measure and record various types of data, such as temperature, humidity, and pressure, making them especially useful in industrial, scientific, and medical applications.
Bluetooth data loggers use embedded sensors to measure and collect data stored in the device’s memory. They’re also equipped with a Bluetooth receiver, allowing them to transmit stored data to nearby devices, usually within a range of up to 300 feet.
Once you place a logger where the data is to be collected, embedded sensors measure and record the data in the device’s memory. The data logger can be set to transmit the data at regular intervals or on demand, where it can be accessed and analyzed on a connected device via a dedicated app or software.
Marathon Products’ temperature and humidity data loggers also have remote configuration capabilities that allow you to control them through a connected device. This way, you can set your data logger to suit your specific needs and preferences. They also run on batteries, making them suitable for use in remote locations without access to electricity.
6 benefits of Bluetooth data loggers
Bluetooth data loggers present numerous benefits to companies in the cold chain sector. This is critical, especially for perishable goods such as food and pharmaceuticals, which must always be maintained at an ideal temperature range. Here are some of the most notable benefits of using Marathon Products’ Bluetooth data loggers.
1. Wireless data transmission
Bluetooth data loggers allow you to monitor temperature and other environmental conditions during transport and storage without retrieving the data physically. This is particularly useful to companies in the cold chain sector, which deal with temperature-sensitive products that can easily get damaged on temperature excursions.
Our data loggers, like the EDL-Beacon, can accurately monitor and record temperatures and transmit the data via Bluetooth. This means you can effectively track the temperature within multiple storage units without physical interaction.
2. Saving time and money
For a successful business, it is crucial to figure out how to cut operational costs without negatively impacting the quality of goods and services. And this is no different in the cold chain sector, which often demands energy-efficient refrigeration systems and temperature monitoring solutions to reduce wastage.
Bluetooth data loggers like the EDL-BT04 temperature and humidity can provide real-time monitoring and alerts. This allows for quick identification and correction of any temperature excursions preventing spoilage and wastage.
3. Access to reliable data
For decades, temperature and humidity monitoring have been a manual process performed through scheduled monitoring and reporting. Although this method worked, for the most part, it was flawed by inaccuracies and inconsistencies.
The result was often unreliable data, making it difficult to draw meaningful insights. Modern Bluetooth data loggers like the EDL-BT55 overcome these limitations by taking measurements automatically and precisely.
4. Continuous temperature monitoring
Most products handled by the cold chain sector can easily get damaged by slight temperature variations during storage and transit. To avert the ensuing losses, companies in the cold chain sector must constantly track product temperatures.
Unfortunately, using human labor to handle this task leaves room for error, which opens a wide door for losses.
Continuously measuring and recording temperatures during storage and transit can also help identify patterns or trends in temperature data, enabling you to optimize your operations and improve the quality of your goods.
5. The desired convenience
Bluetooth data loggers are specially designed for convenience. For instance, our MaxiLog-PDF Bluetooth temperature data logger can automatically connect and send temperature data directly to your device.
This makes them especially useful in storage units where you may want to collect temperature data without opening the unit or product packaging. You can comfortably monitor temperature anywhere, anytime, and on the go.
6. Meet compliance requirements
Highly regulated industries in the cold chain sector, particularly those that deal with food and pharmaceutical products, must follow strict compliance guidelines. Failure to follow these guidelines might lead to heavy fines and even the termination of operating licenses.
Using Bluetooth data loggers, companies in the cold chain sector can benefit from round-the-clock temperature monitoring and recording, which can act as proof of compliance.
Bluetooth data loggers can accurately measure and record temperatures during storage and transit. This allows for more comprehensive tracking of the temperature conditions throughout the entire cold chain process. They are also crucial to the early identification of any temperature excursions or deviations that could potentially harm the quality of perishable goods.
