Tive Partners With Sensirion to Launch In-Transit Visibility Solution
BOSTON, MA - Innovations within the fresh produce industry show no signs of slowing down as this company continues to unveil creative new strategies to boost efficiency across the supply chain. In its most recent efforts, Tive has joined forces with Sensirion for the development of its multi-sensor tracker Solo 5G, which provides reliable in-transit temperature monitoring.
“Tive helps customers and LSPs manage critical shipments and take actions to eliminate preventable delays and damage,” said Martin Forest, VP, Technology and Operations at Tive. “Condition monitoring is key—it must be real-time, hyper-accurate, and compliant. With Sensirion, we are confident that our products have the very best components available so we can focus on improving our solutions and delivering even more to our customers.”
The in-transit visibility solution switches out passive data loggers with real-time visibility into the location, temperature, humidity, shock, and light of sensitive cold chains, according to a press release. Optimizing Sensirion’s state-of-the-art, 3-point calibrated sensors, Tive is able to expedite the delivery of ISO-certified industry-compliant solutions that align with the demanding requirements of shippers and logistics service providers moving their ingredients.
In order to achieve this accuracy, Tive’s Solo 5G tracker relies on Sensirion’s ISO 17025-certified humidity and temperature sensor SHT33. The SHT33 technology melds the company’s digital humidity sensing capabilities with new, high-accuracy ISO 17025-certified digital temperature sensing specifically for cold and frozen chain applications on a single chip.
“Tive’s innovative tracking solutions are the perfect application for our ISO 17025-certified humidity and temperature sensors, offering highly reliable, accurate, and GDP-compliant sensor technology. Taking this disruptive approach, Tive and Sensirion are revolutionizing cost-efficient temperature tracking in supply chain management,” says Matthias Scharfe, Product Manager for Humidity and Temperature Sensors at Sensirion.
Utilizing state-of-the-art CMOSens® Technology, the SHT33 sensor’s functionality includes energy-saving signal processing, communication speeds of up to 1 MHz, and two distinct and user-selectable I2C addresses. Each of the devices is identified via a unique serial number, and comes with an ISO 17025-accredited calibration certificate, which comprises three temperatures: -30 degrees C, 5 degrees C, and 70 degrees C. These calibration certificates, as well as data for each SHT33 sensor, can be easily downloaded from a server address given in the shipment documents, which allows simple and efficient processing by automated systems.
SHT33 users can also merge the provided calibration data from their sensors with the calibration data needed for their dataloggers, which drastically streamlines the assembly and testing processes.
