Timestrip launches new electronic indicators
Timestrip (Cambridge, UK), developer of smart indicator technology, is launching a completely new range with two electronic temperature indicators. They will be important in monitoring the safe storage and transportation of a wide range of goods including pharmaceuticals, vaccines, healthcare, food produce, adhesives and inks.
Timestrip Complete (‘TC’) indicators are extremely easy to use, highly versatile and can be attached to products at unit, case or pallet level. They track any breach of temperature outside the designated range, helping manufacturers and logistics staff to safeguard product quality and meet regulations.
The new Timestrip range comprises two indicators. The TC489 is an intelligent device that monitors temperature data every minute with high accuracy. The key alert temperatures can be selected as standard e.g. 2-8°C, or can be specified as bespoke across a wide temperature range as low as -30°C or as high as 60°C.
The TC489 has upper and lower limit alarms, and can communicate wirelessly using near field communication (NFC) via a free app, creating a comprehensive data report that includes: number of times limit exceeded, total time limit exceeded and alarm status. Weighing just six grams, it also provides a clear visual signal using built in LEDs.
The TC490 is a simpler device monitoring similar ranges with a 180 day service life, irreversible alarms, and provides a highly cost effective solution to monitoring a wide range of sensitive products.
“The new eTimestrip TC products offer our clients solutions for applications that need accurate temperature monitoring, and where strong functionality is needed in most critical applications”, explains Nora Murphy, commercial director at Timestrip. “They provide clients with the assurance that products have been correctly stored and transported all the way from manufacture to the point of use.”
The new TC range follows the successful introduction last year of Timestrip’s first electronics product, the eTimestrip TIR.
