Title (EN) TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTAL SENSORS ON PALLET
(FR) CAPTEURS ENVIRONNEMENTAUX DE TEMPÉRATURE SUR PALETTE
Abstract:
(EN) Described in detail herein is a system for the detection and notification of abnormal pallet temperature fluctuation. An exemplary system includes a pallet, an ambient air temperature sensor, an item temperature sensor, an indicator light, and an electronic device. The electronic device receives temperature readings from both the ambient air temperature sensor and the item temperature sensor and compares the temperature readings against a known set of temperature thresholds corresponding to the items on the pallet. Following a determination of an unacceptable variation from a threshold, the electronic device may provide a notification through the indicator light. The notification may correspond to the criticality of the threshold passed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de détection et de notification de fluctuation de température de palette anormale. Un système donné à titre d'exemple comprend une palette, un capteur de température d'air ambiant, un capteur de température d'article, un voyant lumineux et un dispositif électronique. Le dispositif électronique reçoit des lectures de température provenant à la fois du capteur de température d'air ambiant et du capteur de température d'article et compare les lectures de température à un ensemble connu de seuils de température correspondant aux articles sur la palette. Suite à la détermination d'une variation inacceptable par rapport à un seuil, le dispositif électronique peut fournir une notification au moyen du voyant lumineux. La notification peut correspondre à la criticité du seuil dépassé.
