HACCP Wireless Temperature Monitoring for Healthcare and Food Services

From: Green Edge Systems, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 15 2008

Green Edge Systems, Inc., a trusted leader of HACCP temperature monitoring for refrigeration and food services, presents its All-In-One Monitoring™ and DataNet state-of-the-art affordable hardware products, software and communication platforms in the Healthcare Foodservice Management HFM 2008 Annual Conference, The Homestead, Hot Springs, Virginia , 15-18 September 2008.

The All-In-One Monitoring™ system and DataNet wireless sensors present an ideal fit for Healthcare application. Each wireless sensor handles up to four refrigeration units, sensors can be mounted on food carts and food transportation vehicles allowing 24/7 monitoring of refrigerated food from storage to the delivery to patients.

Full support of the Joint Commission/JCAHO requirements and support of very low temperatures is provided, allowing the use of the system in the food services as well as through the hospital, including blood banks and pharmacies.

All-In-One Monitoring™ features its own dashboard interface which allows full screen central monitoring of temperature, performance, predictive maintenance and energy efficiency monitoring of the refrigeration systems, in a single view.

When receiving alerts from All-In-One Monitoring™, customers get an indication of the severity and urgency of the problem.
On display will also be the DataNet Wireless Intelligent HACCP temperature monitoring system, the most advanced, reliable, and affordable Zigbee wireless sensor system.

DataNet is fully integrated into the Green Edge Systems' web based All-In-One Monitoring™ platform. Visit http://www.fouriersystems.com/popups/datanet_tour.... for more information.

Results of recent shows that Green Edge Systems, Inc. participated in recently (National School Nutrition Association Conference and Exhibition SNA in Philadelphia, the National Association of College and Universities Food Services NACUFS in Washington and the National Restaurant Association NRA show in Chicago) showed high interest in the comprehensive capabilities of the All-In-One Monitoring™ System which include:

• Ensuring that the refrigeration system performs perfectly and predicts failures before they occur, including alerts on power and compressor failures.
• Energy efficiency - focus on running the refrigeration system in the most efficient way, providing substantial savings to the bottom line.
• Temperature monitoring - providing 5 different categories of alerts based on the urgency to handle malfunctions of your refrigeration system.
• Monitoring the temperature in food service trucks and food carts as an integral part of the systems. Just place a DataNet sensor that is also a data logger in the truck and/or on food carts, and 24/7 temperature monitoring is fully taken care off.
• Monitoring temperatures in food service equipment such as prep tables, milk coolers, etc.
• HACCP PDA Inspection system

Highlights of the Green Edge Systems DataNet monitoring solution:

* Each sensor is a data logger has 4 separate sensor inputs and can store up to 60,000 readings and has an internal memory and processor.
* The All-In-One Monitoring™ web based software platform monitors all the kitchens in the organization in addition to separate software platforms that run in each kitchen.
* Fully meshed network Zigbee is supported by the sensors.
* This system is one of the first of its kind, which fully implements the meshed network Zigbee protocol.
* Extended transmission range of up to one mile between gateways/repeaters and the sensors.
* Operating keypad and large LCD display on each sensor.
* Full calibration of the probes is possible through the network.
* Increased accuracy of temperature reading up to 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit.
* Every sensor has up to four external recording inputs: NTC, PT100 2 wire, Thermocouple J, K and T, door sensors, 4-20mA, 0-1V, and Pulse counter
* Availability of repeaters; a whole building can run on a single gateway.
* The software allows the view of real time sensors layout with strength signal per sensor and the actual signal pass.
* Additional internal temperature and humidity reading in each sensor at no additional charge.
* A separate dry contact relay in each sensor, gateway and repeater, allows triggering of local alarms as well as triggering campus building management systems.
* Email and SMS cell phone alerts configurable per kitchen and per campus.
* 4-20mA inputs in the sensors allow connection of pressure and other sensors.
* Bi-directional communication between the gateway and sensors allows update of the sensors anytime, and over-the-air firmware updates.
* A built in battery charger and battery backup in each sensor and repeater.
* Frequency between readings can occur within a few seconds, allowing immediate response when the system is not working properly.
* If reception deteriorates, the system automatically, within 10 seconds, finds alternative routings of the signals and ensures continuous maximum strength reception.
* Immediate alerts when power or refrigeration is lost for each sensor.
* Critical compressor malfunction and poor performance alerts.
* Predictive maintenance alerts allow immediate preventive maintenance actions.
* Data displayed in numeric or graphical way for all inputs.
* Energy Efficiency alerts when the refrigeration system in not running efficiently.
