In many market segments, e.g. for food and pharmaceutical shipments, monitoring the temperature of the consignment is essential. Circlon | Cool Control makes it possible for suppliers to give their customers a guarantee for temperature-relevant shipments and offers many advantages. It documents that the goods are sufficiently cooled during transit, when the doors or roller shutters of the truck have been opened and where the cooled goods are currently located. Using Circlon | Cool Control, refrigerated shipments can be traced tamper-proof and free from false alarms.
Complete temperature and load compartment monitoring
Certified as temperature recorder according to EN 12830
Tamper-proof door monitoring based on RFID technology
GPS positioning and data communication via mobile service
An integrated GSM and GPS module allows Circlon | Cool Control to maintain a constant data exchange and thus permanent tracking. Circlon | Cool Control can be used with any mobile service provider, even with private APN networks.
The Cool Control Box measures cooling data, collects data on door openings and transmits this via the mobile network to the corresponding servers. The temperature data is generated by our sensors or connected sensor systems and transmitted via the Cool Control Box to the server.
The transmitted data can be displayed, managed, evaluated and exported via the web portal. There is also the option of integrating Circlon | Cool Control as a module into the telematics solution from Circlon | dff. Temperatures, routes, speeds and locations can be evaluated on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. This takes place over the course of the route with temperature data in the map view. It is possible to document door openings and door closures or the activation and shutdown of the cooling system in a log with exact time information. All evaluations of this data can be exported in Excel files. In addition, alarms and groups of alarms are individually configurable as required.
Vehicle overview with graphic representation of the data, e.g. timeline, map view (route with temperature and speed).
When alerts are triggered, notifications can be sent by e-mail or SMS.
Groupings can be defined for a selection of vehicles to which certain alarms are assigned.
Alarms themselves can be defined, e.g. in the case of exceeding or falling below the temperature thresholds, establishing prohibited zones (geofences), door openings, manipulation attempts.
The connection of the individual components can be wired or wireless. This means that Circlon | Cool Control can be installed in any vehicle. The modular system consists of a Cool Control Box and the SIM card from any provider. Alternatively, APN networks can also be used for data transmission. In addition, there is a certified temperature sensor according to EN 12830 and a sophisticated door monitoring system. With the aid of this RFID technology, door openings can be recorded tamper-proof and free from false alarms. The communication between RFID tag and RFID reader is encrypted. The supply line from the box to the RFID reader is a data bus. Random data are sent several times per second, which are answered by the reader. If the connection is interrupted or disturbed, the door is considered open. In this way, false alarms are avoided and manipulation attempts are excluded.
