NFC Data Logger for Isothermal Boxes

The size of a credit card, NFC data loggers are directly inserted in standard, isothermal boxes produced by Georg UTZ Group. Their temperature limits can be personalized.  In case of a temperature breach, a red diode will switch on and alert the recipient of a problem. A simple reading with a smartphone or other hand-held device equipped with the NFC technology enables the recipient to start/stop the recording and then to check the whole temperature history. This data is then automatically uploaded to a secure cloud-based database accessible via an online web portal. The logger can also be programmed with all information regarding shipping and the products, in order to simplify even more logistics. It can be for instance linked to the tracking number of a shipment or serial number of a pallet / container for easy identifcation and data analysis. Reusable or single-use, with autonomy ranging from 1 month to 1 year, this solution is also particularly affordable and uses fully calibrated, highly precise sensors.
