New temperature monitoring system

New temperature monitoring system

Newtown, Powys, UK: Quartix’s temperature monitoring system uses mobile technology to alert users to temperature changes within the vehicle.

One or two Quartix temperature probes are mounted on the vehicle’s chiller units to continuously monitor conditions, potentially in different areas of the vehicle, such as a freezer section and chilled area.

Customers establish the temperature range for each probe, and can access live and historical reports that can also be exported in Excel.

The system reports temperatures every two minutes while the vehicle is in use and every 15 minutes when the ignition is off; recordings are taken when the vehicle stops and when the ignition is turned off. When a probe registers consecutive out-of-range temperature readings an e-mail is sent to the customer.
