PakSense Announces XpressPDF Temperature Monitoring Label
Unique label design features USB connection; automatically generates PDF data file
BOISE, Idaho, Oct 14, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PakSense, Inc., an innovator in sensory solutions for packaging, announced today the launch of the XpressPDF temperature monitoring label. XpressPDF Labels monitor time and temperature of perishable items such as food, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, biologics, and other perishable products during distribution and storage. About the size of a sugar packet, labels are flat and feature an integrated USB connection point which can be plugged directly into the USB port of a computer. Once connected, the label automatically generates a PDF data file containing complete time and temperature history including a graph and summary statistics. Simple to use and easy to interpret, XpressPDF Labels eliminate the need for reading devices and proprietary download software.
XpressPDF Labels are optimal for use in situations that require fully independent operation including exports, distribution center to retail location, and any "last mile" distribution applications. The small, flat, waterproof form factor of the label enables cold chain monitoring in virtually any packaging configuration, including at the pallet, carton, and individual item level. Because of its small size, packaging modifications are not required to utilize the XpressPDF Label.
"XpressPDF is the easiest to use, most versatile temperature monitoring device on the market today," said David Light, CEO at PakSense. "Low infrastructure and ease-of-use for the customer were paramount when we designed this product. Cold chain simplicity is what we have created."
XpressPDF Labels feature an innovative temperature sensor that is calibrated to NIST standards during manufacturing. The label will take a surface read of the object to which it is attached, providing a closer approximation of actual product temperature versus the general ambient readings provided by bulkier recorders. Light emitting diodes on the label will flash to indicate a temperature excursion and prompt the user to download full cold chain data via the USB connection. In addition, XpressPDF Labels can be uploaded to virtually any third party logistics database via the PakSense Device Interface SDK and are recyclable via the PakSense GreenSense program.
