OCEASOFT’s latest-generation of Bluetooth-enabled temperature data loggers facilitate cold chain management
The latest generation Atlas and Emerald products offer improved performance and a robust user experience in the field: Bluetooth® connectivity has been optimized to handle a large number of data loggers simultaneously. Internal memory in both devices has been boosted to hold 16,000 readings, offering connectionless data logging for periods of several months, such as for maritime shipping. Battery life has been increased, now reaching 1 year for Atlas and Emerald. The temperature range for Atlas modules has been extended, now covering from -30°C to +70°C. Support for Bluetooth® connectivity gives Atlas and Emerald modules a real advantage over traditional USB-based data loggers: Reading data through product packaging, thus reducing the risk of human error or false alarms caused by opening to retrieve the data logger. Simple operation with an ordinary smartphone, now prevalent in society, without having to use a full-sized computer to read data. Ongoing information provided to drivers thanks to wireless communication. Automatic retrieval of data at the destination, or upon return, using the OCEABridge data collector/Cloud gateway. Fast and easy data logger programming, in just two seconds, with the OCEASOFT Loading Bench* and reusable mission templates.
