PakSense Inc. plans to release a wireless version of its temperature monitoring label in December 2008. The PakSense Ultra Wireless Label will enable users to wirelessly download time and temperature information and analyze data before unloading a perishable product from a container.
Ultra Wireless Labels are activated and applied to product or product packaging before shipping. At any point during distribution, the PakSense Ultra Wireless Reader can collect data from any label within a 300-foot line of sight range or approximately 60-ft. obstructed range with the touch of a button. Information from up to 15 labels can be downloaded at one time.
Time and temperature data can be examined on the screen of the Ultra Wireless Reader immediately after download, which improves reaction times and helps users make quick decisions on product quality. Detailed information from the reader, including temperature alert notifications, can then be downloaded to a PC for e-mailing and permanent storage.
Flat and about the size of a credit card, Ultra Wireless Labels are encased in waterproof foodgrade packaging. Environmentally friendly, they take up less space, have a low carbon footprint, and can be returned to PakSense for recycling. The labels can also be used to monitor cold cases in retail stores.
