Digi International is providing its patented Digi Data Logger, a breakthrough wireless temperature monitoring and tracking solution for shipping perishable goods.

The Digi Data Logger is attached to the shipment packaging or pallet, or placed in direct contact with the product. It reduces risk of both machine and human error with real-time temperature monitoring and tracking via an always-on sensor and up to six months of onboard storage.

This new logger is offered as part of a subscription-based Digi SafeTemps solution, which is comprised of wireless sensors, gateways and software that allow temperature data to be monitored, logged and retrieved independent of the mode of transport. Data transmission is capable of adjusting to various environments to take advantage of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or LTE/3G cellular networks. Hardware and software are included as part of the subscription.

The addition of on-product monitoring to the Digi SafeTemps solution provides a single source of consistent, accurate real-time temperature monitoring for both cooling zones and perishable products themselves throughout the entire transport chain.

This level of temperature monitoring is especially critical given regulations from the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Vaccine Storage and Handling Best Practices. These require in-transit temperature monitoring to protect the public from contaminated food or compromised vaccines.

As a sensor comes into range of the Digi gateway, or a smart device with an authorized Digi SafeTemps application, real-time visibility data becomes immediately available. Data is processed generating an approval or warning based on required temperature parameters of the shipment. Upon arrival, the Digi Data Logger does not rely on manual upload and data analysis; the clearly labeled Data Logger is simply pulled from the crate or pallet, initiating a motion-sensed trigger to automatically transmit all recorded information to upload.
