DeltaTrak is set to launch a new data security feature for its FlashLink BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) wireless monitoring solution.
The technology allows information to be sent from a smartphone app on a mobile device to the BLE web application, which can then be viewed remotely by authorized users.
“With the new security feature, shippers have the option to require receivers to enter an access code before they can see or download data from the BLE loggers. This gives them that extra layer of data security,” said Frederick Wu, president and CEO of DeltaTrak,
A FlashLink BLE logger, which is placed with consignments, has been designed to help suppliers maintain continuous visibility of temperature and humidity during facility monitoring and pre-cooling operations. DeltaTrak said this was especially useful for 24/7 facility monitoring, such as cold storage warehouses, distribution centers, greenhouses, temperature controlled processing, packing and staging areas.
Alert notifications are sent from the logger to authorized personnel, which allows them to take quick corrective action before products are compromised by changes in temperature conditions.
“With the FlashLink BLE loggers, customers have secure access to data, immediate alert notifications, and reports in PDF and CSV formats,” the company said in a release.
For delivery routes, receivers can also read temperature history data from the FlashLink BLE logger without opening the vehicle doors or locating the logger inside the truck. As soon as a vehicle arrives, the smart phone application accesses data from the logger from up to 30 meters away.
The new security feature for the BLE wireless monitoring solution will be unveiled by DeltaTrak at this week’s PMA Fresh Summit in New Orleans.
