CAS Installs Temperature Monitoring System For Alaska Immunization Program

Accsense A2-05 Ethernet Wired Temperature Measurement Pods

CHESTERLAND OH—November 17, 2011

CAS DataLoggers has recently provided the datalogging solution for the State of Alaska’s Department of Health and Social Services, providing installation of an Accsense temperature monitoring and alarm system for their new statewide immunization program. The organization acquired over 30 A2-05 Ethernet Wired Temperature Measurement Pods for their 26 public health centers handling storage and dispensation of critical medicines and vaccines. Most of the centers contain at least one medical refrigerator and freezer, with some sites requiring additional monitoring. The Accsense system entirely replaced the clinics’ old alarm systems, thus increasing safety measures and decreasing staff response times.

The A2-05 Ethernet Wired Temperature Measurement Pod is designed for measuring temperatures in medical refrigerators, freezers, incubators, and in cryogenic storage. This LAN-wired temperature monitor pod has inputs for two external RTDs temperature probes with a temperature range of -100°C (-148°F) to +100°C (+212°F) for use in refrigerators, freezers and incubators, and an additional input for 1 thermocouple measuring from -200°C (-328°F) to -100°C (-148°F) for use in cryogenic storage units. Each monitor includes a power adapter and Ethernet cables and supports Power over Ethernet technology to decrease the number of wires required to install the network, all at a lower cost and easier maintenance compared to traditional wiring. In case of a power failure or network connection loss, the Accsense system has an internal lithium battery to keep running for 6 hrs, during which the pods will continue to buffer data, storing up to 256 data points or until connection is restored, keeping the vaccines carefully monitored.

Each pod was connected to a medical refrigerator and/or freezer, providing convenient monitoring for every unit in the clinics and automatically sending their data to the secure servers at Accsense, encrypting all data.This automated solution is designed for quick installation and easy setup since the pod features centralized management with no software to install–users can simply plug the monitor into a router with a DHCP server or assign it a fixed IP address with the Accsense utility. Additionally, the pods can be utilized with other Accsense wired and wireless monitors to form the ideal configuration for specific applications.

Clinic staff can now use the pods to access both live and historic data as well as set both local and remote alarms. Alarm levels and contacts can be sent by phone, email, and text message. Multiple wired monitors can all be viewed from a single screen, even when located in the clinic’s different remote health centers. Users can then login using any Web browser to retrieve reports and graphs or modify the system’s configuration from anywhere Internet connection is available.
Additionally, CAS Sales Manager Pete Martin trained all available staff in the use of the new Accsense system, and the department recorded these meetings for the benefit of absent and future staff members, ensuring a high level of knowledgeability and safety procedures among the entire staff. CAS is also providing value-added tech support to the program as it gets up and running with its new monitoring and alarming technology.

CAS Introduces Wireless Temperature Monitoring Solution

Accsense A1-08 Wireless Pod Features Cloud Capabilities

CHESTERLAND OH—November 15, 2011

CAS DataLoggers has partnered with high-quality manufacturer Accsense to announce the A1-08 Wireless Temperature Data Logger, a wireless temperature monitoring and alarming system which provides users with cloud-based data storage and reporting for convenient monitoring. This wireless pod can to connect to 6 NTC thermistor inputs, enabling an increase in the number of sensors per pod and significantly reducing user cost per measurement. When connected to an Accsense B1-06 Wireless Gateway (each supporting up to 16 sensor pods), the temperature pod can monitor and log data with the ability to view and remotely access that data in real-time. The A1-08 datalogger pod also offers users online graphing, reporting, and configuration features. The new datalogger has been specially designed for temperature-critical applications in healthcare, health sciences, research and manufacturing, serving as a convenient temperature alarm system complete with email, pager, and phone alert capabilities.

The wireless pod’s internal ambient temperature sensor covers a wide temperature range of -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to 158°F), with a thermistor input temperature range of -40°C to +112°C (-40°F to 233°F). Offering 2 digital inputs, the A1-08 pod can be connected to a broad range of digital sensors to provide effortless and dependable online monitoring. All temperature measurements are made at a highly precise 0.1°C resolution, and the user-set sampling rate can be anywhere from 30 seconds to every 24 hours, with an emergency buffer of 250 samples per sensor. The multi-thermistor pod’s range extends out to 250’ outdoors and 90’ indoors without obstructions, and the device can run on either battery or AC power.

Additionally, the A1-08 wireless datalogger automatically sends its recorded data to Rackspace, the manufacturer’s completely secure cloud server, where it is immediately stored and available using a backed-up online Accsense Account. The online account gives instant access to charts showing all measurement history, with ranges as narrow as 5 minutes or as wide as 90 days, and also offers a customizable interface featuring a dashboard showing the most recent measurements from all sensor pods.

Users can quickly download measurement data for offline analysis and grant password-protected, limited access to other operators. Using a standard web browser, users can sign in to access reports and graphs or modify the system configuration from anywhere an internet connection is available. Configurable alarms constantly monitor incoming data and can immediately send email, pager or phone warnings to multiple designees whenever an alarm goes off.

The wireless pod comes delivered in a package containing an AC adapter, wall mounting and bracket, a standard antenna, 3 AA batteries, and more, providing a simple yet reliable temperature monitoring system.
