Emerson Introduces GO USB Data Loggers; Alex Axelsson Comments
BOISE, ID - Innovation can change the world as we know it. For many, Emerson’s most recent technological advancement may do just that. The company has officially launched its new GO USB Logger suite of products, which includes programmable and reusable data loggers used to collect time, temperature, and humidity data in-transit, helping fresh providers maintain the integrity of their cold chain.
“The GO USB Logger suite of products are easily configurable via software to meet a user’s unique cold chain measurement needs,” said Alex Axelsson, Product Manager of Cargo for Emerson’s cold chain business. “With one software for all three products, the loggers are flexible enough to be used alone or together, to meet a variety of applications.”
According to a press release, this new technology provides vital cold chain information when a product reaches its destination, helping ensure only the freshest and safest products reach consumers. Used by grower/shippers, logistics providers, retailers, foodservice operators, and the life sciences industry, GO USB loggers were designed to help customers meet the various requirements for vaccine handling, with options to satisfy both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
Three product variations are available in the GO USB Logger suite: the GO USB Temp, GO USB Humidity, and GO USB Probe. Depending on the product model, the loggers measure ambient temperature only (GO USB Temp), ambient temperature and humidity (GO USB Humidity), or ambient and probe temperatures (GO USB Probe). The GO USB Probe can also be disconnected and used as a stand-alone temperature device.
GO USB loggers can collect a range of useful information such as mean kinetic temperature, minimum and maximum temperatures and humidity, average temperatures, alerts, and much more. These data points are viewed on a liquid crystal display (LCD) and can be presented in a secure PDF report, which is generated automatically when the logger is connected to a PC. An audit trail is also provided within the PDF report, with time stamps showing a range of events that coincide with the logger’s use, allowing data gathered and stored to be shared easily among key stakeholders.
