Overview of Temperature Monitoring
Our fully validated and compliant web-based, wireless temperature monitoring systems are specifically designed for controlled storage and testing environments. The Kelsius system alerts designated staff members when the temperature deviates from pre-set parameters. The broad scope of applications includes fridges, freezers, incubators in hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories and bloodbanks.
Why we use it
The healthcare industry relies heavily on fridge temperature monitoring and organisations must comply with monitoring legislation
The system is MHRA and CPA compliant
Full validation package available to include full IQ and OQ
Regulatory compliance and solid audit trails
Using web-based technology, electronic records are securely accessible 24/7 globally on any internet-enabled device
Prevents damaging valuable samples/medication with its proactive alerts
Features and Benefits
Greater Visibility of Data
Data from all locations (i.e. separate departments and buildings) can be centralised on the Kelsius web portal, providing users with an overall view of their monitored environments from any internet-enabled device. Certain areas may not have 24-hour supervision. If a temperature excursion occurs during out-of-hours, the Kelsius system will send alerts to personnel who can then access further information remotely via the internet, enabling prompt decisions and necessary course of action.
Data is held on the Kelsius server resulting in a zero cost infrastructure model (i.e. no need for computer hardware, network servers and software).
Kelsius provides a managed hosting service which reduces the impact on internal IT resources and enables clients to focus on core operational activities.
Whilst every site is unique, the sensors have a typical range of around 100m. Where required, signal strength and distance can be easily boosted using repeaters. Also, the Network Controller has the ability to receive data from over 250 channels. Hence large areas can be covered by minimal hardware. Remote maintenance capability avoids engineer call-outs.
The Kelsius web architecture is centrally updated facilitating rapid and regular implementation of new software releases. There is no need for users to download software patches and upgrades.
Kelsius host the client’s data on multiple servers across multiple sites in the UK and Ireland. In addition, the Kelsius servers can control access and resources, to guarantee that only clients with the appropriate permissions may access and change data.
The system can proceed without IT network permissions. There is no need for wiring, PC hardware or software. The new Configuration Wizard will enable real-time configuration of the client’s web portal by the on-site engineer during installation.
Easy to Maintain
The servers detect failures in the system and alert customers. Remote diagnosis avoids unplanned maintenance visits. A dedicated representative will attend annually to complete necessary maintenance and calibration visits.
What it’s used for
