To meet FDA regulations for tracking equipment temperatures, the Food Innovation Center needed to check temperatures manually twice a day and log the data. We made it simpler.
To meet FDA regulations for tracking equipment temperatures, the FIC had to have someone manually check the temperatures on all the fridges and freezers twice a day and log the data. This manual process not only consumed a ton of time but could also be improved severely.
Using Omega's PID controllers, wireless transmitters and gateway for data logging and monitoring, Omega was able to deliver an holistic, end-to-end automated wireless temperature monitoring and data analytics solution that not only increased efficiency, but digitalized their compliance documentation process.
“ We oversee the client’s food safety parameters and have the authority to stop a production run, so having real-time data of our temperatures is important to making sure the process is in compliance and running smoothly.”
