4. Our Products and Services
a. Temperature & Humidity Mapping Study and Qualification
In brief temperature mapping is the process of analyzing the uniform distribution of temperature and humidity across the controlled area under various practical conditions. Temperature mapping and validation is carried out to analyze and ensure the uniformity of distribution across all areas of the controlled areas under real life conditions. The Typical applications are:
• Ware house
• Cold Room
• Walk in Chillers
• Refrigerators, Freezers
• Cold Storage
• Vehicle, Van & Reefers
• Passive and Active boxes
In a cold room, warehouse or reefer, the cooling units and corresponding sensors are placed at certain locations of the enclosed area. For storage of temperature sensitive products such as medicines or food, the temperature & humidity should be uniformly distributed so that all the goods are safely stored. There are lot of operations also involved such as opening of doors, presence of human beings which affect the temperature distribution. It is possible that certain areas such as near to a door, near to a wall etc. are at a higher temperature than desired temperature.
This study will analyze temperature and Humidity distribution across the entire area of the asset under various operational conditions and will certify that the asset is suitable for storage of the temperature sensitive products under the specified conditions.
Qualification / Validation
We are the only company based in the Middle East carrying out qualification of assets in line with European standards and American standards.
In order to qualify the asset, further tests and verifications are carried out on the asset and various installed equipment to certify that the entire asset is qualified for storage or transportation of the goods at the specified temperature. Qualification is carried out for Cold Room, Reefer, Vans etc. and is not applicable for warehouses. We recommend qualification for cold rooms & vans since most of the international companies are seeking qualification for these assets instead of temperature mapping study

iv. WiFi Data Loggers by Lascar, UK
• WiFi capability and integrated display
• Wireless connectivity to PC via WiFi
• Measurement range from -20 to +60°C (-4 to +140°F)
• Temperature accuracy ±0.2°C (0 to +60°C)
• Humidity accuracy ±1.8% (10 to +90%RH)
• Calibration certificate available
The EL-WiFi-TH+ sensor measures the temperature and humidity of the environment in which it is situated. This high accuracy version is accurate to ±0.2 °C and ±1.8% RH humidity. Data is streamed wirelessly over any WiFi network and can be viewed on a PC using free software package or on the EL-WiFi-Cloud*. During configuration, the sensor will search for an existing wireless network whilst physically connected to the PC. It can then be placed anywhere within range of the network. If the sensor temporarily loses connectivity with the network, it will log readings until it is able to communicate again with the PC application or cloud service (max 120 days at 10 second sample interval). Although the EL-WiFi sensors have an impressive range this can be increased by using WiFi extenders.
The EL-WiFi-TH+ is a low powered battery device. When configured using typical transmission periods (e.g. once every 5 minutes) the sensor will operate for over one year (at room temperature). The battery can then be recharged via a PC or USB +5V wall adapter using the USB lead provided or can be permanently powered by the USB wall adapter.
v. Electronic Temperature Indicators by Cryopak, USA
Cryopak, USA has developed the world’s first accurate Electronic Temperature indicator which has an operational range of -40 °C to +80°C (-40 ˚F to +176 ˚F). This is single use disposable type indicator.
The device has to be simply started using the Start button and to be placed inside the box which contains the sensitive products. As an example the device will be pre-programmed for a temperature range of 2 to 8 Deg Centigrade. The Green LED will be blinking as long as the temperature is within 2 and 8 Degree. If these thresh hold levels are exceeded, the Red LED will start blinking. While receiving the consignment at the end of transportation, you can simply look at the device to check whether the LED is Green or Red.

Dehumidifiers are used for decreasing humidity levels of homes, offices, museums, warehouses, cold rooms etc. The operational principle of different type of dehumidifiers is by absorbing the moisture from the air and thus reducing the levels. We are representing Trotec, Germany for their numerous dehumidifiers for industrial, commercial and residential applications. These are typically used for hotels, swimming pools, offices, warehouses, cold rooms, apartments, villa etc.
Desiccant and condensation dehumidifiers
Desiccant dehumidifiers use adsorbent material such as silica gel to absorb the moisture from the air. Condensation type models condense the moisture into water and the water has to be removed from the dehumidifier
Desiccant type are ideal for low temperature and condensation type are more suitable for room temperature

e. Temperature recorder with Printer for vehicle
This Recorder is for printing regular reports of the temperature inside a vehicle compartment. This device has display of the current readings, alerts as well as in built recording. There is a small display in which the current recordings and alerts are displayed. There are two sensors which can be connected to the refrigerated compartment and the device can be mounted in the driver’s cabin. Minimum and Maximum temperature limits can be programmed in the device. Upon reaching these limits, alerts will be displayed on the device with a beep sound.
This is basically an electronic temperature data logger additionally fitted with a printer. It offers all the features of a normal temperature data logger including alarms, indications, a large memory capacity, etc.
Apart from the facilities of a data logger, it also can record the door opening through another set of sensor.
The measurement data are stored in non-volatile memory of the recorder. The frequency of the data memory can be programmed in the range of 30 seconds to 20 hours. The memory capacity is 30 000 readings, which will be equivalent to 625 days if reading is taken every 30 minutes. Once the memory is full, the recorder continues to record the latest readings, while the oldest readings are automatically erased. The stored data can be erased through the password-protected menu. The recorder is equipped with a printer from which the driver can print data for any period of time. The vehicle details also can be initially programmed in the device so that the report indicates the vehicle details. The report will include the temperature Vs time details, alert events etc. The sensors can be placed at a distance of 5 meter from the device. The device will operate on 12 V / 24 V DC. Also same can be connected to regular AC power supply through a DC adapter.

f. SMS Temperature tracking for Trucks & Vans
The temperature monitoring of vans and trucks is carried out by GPRS system by using a SIM card within the monitoring system mounted in the vehicle. The temperature data is collected at the programmed frequency and transmitted through data packets using your mobile carrier services. This is similar to an internet connection on a mobile device which uses similar technology for transmitting data.
Difference between GPRS and GPS for temperature monitoring for vehicles
It may be specifically noticed that monitoring of temperature is not done through a GPS system. GPS (Global Positioning System) is only for tracking the position of the vehicle and continuous data such as temperature cannot be transmitted. In a GPS system, there is no data transmitted from the vehicle to a server. For continuous data transmission of variable parameters, a SIM card based communication device is required.
VacTrack™ is a SIM card based device for monitoring temperature of vans, reefers etc. The main features are:
Customer will receive SMS every hour (can be reprogrammed) indicating the temperature of the insulated vehicle.
Customer will receive SMS alert if temperature goes above limits
Customer can send a SMS to the vehicle and will receive an automatic reply indicating the current temperature
Other prominent features are:
i. An SMS indicating the current temperature will be automatically sent from the vehicle to 3 mobile numbers.
ii. The frequency of the SMS can be programmed eg. one SMS will be sent every hour indicating the current temperature
iii. Two temperature sensors can be connected to one device. Hence for reefer trucks two sensors can be placed at two ends of the insulated chamber.
iv. In case of an alarm event (eg. Temperature above limits), SMS alerts will be sent to three mobile devices.
v. The periodic SMS can be disabled and only alert can be programmed. In such cases the vehicle will send only an SMS in case of a temperature alert.
vi. A SIM card with roaming facility can be inserted so that SMS will be sent from any country in which the network operator provides connectivity.

h. Active Thermal Insulated Boxes
Active cooling boxes are boxes with insulated walls and fitted with a cooling unit. The cooling unit can be connected to normal power supply of 230 V / 110 V AC as well as 12 V / 24V DC supply of vehicles.
While at the warehouse the box can be connected to AC supply and can be cooled and medicine will be loaded inside. Then the box is loaded into the van or truck and will be connected to the 12 V / 24 V DC power supply the vehicle. At the delivery point, the box is disconnected and carried to the customer and will be unloaded to a cold room /refrigerator. So the box is working on power continuously except during loading and unloading.
The advantage is that transportation of a small payload can be effectively carried out for longer duration.
Qualification of the above boxes also can be carried out. Alternatively we can supply pre-qualified boxes
i. LED Temperature & Humidity display panel with external sensor
