Hospitals and clinics rely on all sorts of refrigerators to keep vaccines, drugs, tissues, blood, and a variety of different products at the right temperature throughout each day. Open doors, loss of power, and malfunctions can spoil the contents inside that can be many times more valuable than the fridge itself. Emanate Wireless, a company out of Ijamsville, Maryland is releasing a special monitoring device that keeps an eye on a fridge to make sure it keeps its contents nice and cold.
The PowerPath Temp can be used alone in a small facility or in a group to monitor a large number of fridges at a hospital. Each fridge plugs into the PowerPath Temp, and the device itself plugs into the power outlet. A temperature probe attached to the device is then snaked into the interior of the fridge. The PowerPath Temp is then setup to raise an alarm if the fridge falls out of a predefined range, if power is lost, or unusual readings are detected.
It works over WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy and doesn’t require any batteries to maintain.
Here’s Emanate’s promo video for the PowerPath Temp:
