CalAmp released the new iOn Xtreme Temperature Tag, a smart sensor tag designed to pair with a thermocouple probe to monitor the environmental temperatures of assets in conditions as low as -270°C and up to 400°C.
Ideal for tracking and monitoring shipments of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, biological materials and liquid nitrogen, iOn Xtreme Temperature Tag provides end-to-end real-time visibility, security and integrity to temperature-sensitive shipments.
“When companies transport sensitive products and materials, they need real-time insight into shipment locations and ambient temperatures to identify and respond quickly to any deviations. We developed this Xtreme Temperature Tag to provide visibility and actionable intelligence—at the edge—so our partners and customers can act with agility, mitigate risks and protect these vital assets that so many lives depend upon,” says Jeff Clark, SVP of product management at CalAmp.
“Life sciences companies entrust us to facilitate the safe and efficient transport of essential shipments and provide visibility where companies need it most -- end-to-end and in real-time. This includes life-saving pharmaceuticals, mission-critical vaccines and biological materials needed to advance new therapies and medicines. This extreme temperature tag provides our customers with new levels of visibility and greater confidence in the supply chain of highly perishable materials,” says Barry Conlon, CEO and founder of Overhaul.
- When affixed to an asset or container, the tag captures proximity location and ambient temperature readings at a user-defined logging rate. It then transmits that data via proprietary Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signal to CalAmp SC iOn gateway devices.
