CalAmp has introduced its SC1302 single-use smart tracking device that can monitor temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius. The smart device provides granular visibility for the safe and efficient transport of COVID-19 vaccines and other pharmaceuticals and perishables, as well as various electronics and other high-value shipments.
The SC1302 sensor integrates with CalAmp’s SC iOn Supply Chain Visibility software solution to empower real-time, end-to-end monitoring of shipments through a web interface. Using the solution, third-party logistics providers (3PLs) and private fleet operators can monitor environmental conditions of perishable and environmentally-sensitive vital shipments from the point they leave the manufacturer through multi-modal touchpoints via land, sea and air until they arrive safely at their final destinations. Technical users can directly integrate the sensor data into their own software solution via industry standard APIs and manage the device, all through the CalAmp Telematic Cloud platform.
CalAmp's SC iOn Supply Chain Visibility solution includes a portfolio of wireless sensors and other reusable and single-use devices that can be affixed to assets to track and collect critical data, such as temperature, light, shock, vibration and location throughout the shipment journey. If a shipment is in flight or out of cellular coverage, the sensors will continue to log the environmental data and automatically synchronize with CalAmp’s fixed and mobile hubs once back in range to support chain of custody documentation and environmental reporting.
The end-to-end supply chain solution facilitates compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and Good Distribution Practice (GDP) requirements and provides enhanced control over shipment quality and integrity. The environmental sensor solution meets the technological needs of shipping refrigerated pharmaceuticals.
The CalAmp end-to-end cold chain solution provides: reporting and data analytics; critical alerts and notifications; near real-time location tracking; geofencing and route fencing: stationary and movement detection; tracking all modes of global transportation; Application Programming Interface (API) integration; external sharing of critical sensor readings and history.
