New York, NY— Elpro Services is exhibiting its Hamster-R datalogger, which combines radio frequency identification (RFID) technology with a temperature datalogger, during Interphex 2005 , April 26-28, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Environmental or product temperatures are logged and saved periodically, and the radio receiver integrated in Hamster-R switches on autonomously at frequent intervals, and checks for a familiar signal on its frequency. When it recognizes a signal, the receiver reacts and sends its personal identifier. The base station, which is a notebook PC with a mini antenna or a fixed station with PC and one or more fix-mounted exterior antennas, uses the transmitted identifier to determine system affiliation, and then decides what to do with this datalogger.

Consequently, markers and information can be transmitted to and read from the logger. It is also possible to check the alarm status, to read out saved temperature data, or to execute reprogramming. Of course, all this is only possible if the password-protection at Hamster-R authorizes these procedures. Elpro says this combination of datalogger, automatic radio evalua-tion at a distance of 30 m to 100 m, and exact identification offers solutions for documenting cold chains in vehicle fleets, branch companies, and for shipment of temperature-sensitive products.
