Timestrip launches electronic temperature breach indicators
Published: 9 January 2020 - Christian Lynn
Timestrip has launched the eTimestrip, a small, robust electronic Temperature Indicate and Report (TIR) device that intends to provide a simple and reliable way to detect temperature breaches during product storage and transportation.
The compact indicators are affixed to product packages, and provide a visual indication of the temperature conditions to which the package has been exposed during the entire supply chain, including the ‘last mile’. Traffic light LEDs on the device show status information, and with the free smartphone app to retrieve data wirelessly, a more detailed report can be generated. This shows the date, time and extent of any temperature breaches that may have occurred.
By providing an auditable timed record of breaches, the devices open up a wide range of applications that can be monitored cost effectively throughout the supply chain. They will be used in pharmaceutical, healthcare, bulk food and other high value applications with temperature sensitive products.
”The addition of eTimestrip to our existing portfolio of temperature and time monitoring technology is part of our vision at Timestrip,” says Nora Murphy, commercial director of Timestrip: “Our clients in a wide range of sectors look to Timestrip products to give peace of mind throughout the transportation and storage lifecycle of their goods.”
