Following the launch of Gemini Data Logger's new radio-enabled
data communication technology, Igloo incorporated a new system
at its facilities in both Watford and Leeds. The addition of radio
to the communication options has provided Igloo with a highly
effective, low cost monitoring and alarm system that automatically
takes temperature readings from multiple points in the company's
Commenting on the benefits of the new equipment, Igloo Managing
Director Alistair Turner says, "We are now able to view live
temperature data from all of our cold rooms 24/7 from any computer
anywhere in the world. However, the system also enables us to set
alarms so that text and email alerts are issued to key staff if any
of the temperatures start to deviate from the norm. As a result, we
are able to deal with any problems before they occur."
The Tinytag Radio System consists of a number of radio loggers
connected wirelessly to a receiver. The receiver is connected to a
central PC running 'Tinytag Explorer Radio' software that
continuously collects and stores data from the remote loggers.
