Cold Chain Monitoring Made Simple


Lightning Real Time temperature recorders provide online access to current temperature, location, and door status while perishable shipments are in-transit.

This “set it and forget it” level of automation provides all the documentation required for compliance with the FSMA Final Rule for Sanitary Transportation of human and animal food products. If desired, Lightning Real Time instruments can be pre-configured to issue SMS/email alerts when truck/trailer temperature breaches its intended temperature range.

Unlike competing systems, Lightning Real Time is also designed to provide the Inspector/Receiver with a complete temperature chart at the trailer door. Lightning Real Time temperature charts can be viewed immediately upon arrival.  The Inspector simply holds Lightning Real Time back-to-back with an ordinary Android smartphone or tablet to review the temperature record. Using Lightning App., the Inspector can document arrival quality attributes, add photographs, and even log accept/reject determinations.

All temperature, location, arrival quality attribute data, and photographs are immediate archived online for easy access. FSMA “Sanitary Transportation Final Rule” compliance has never been easier!

Lightning Real Time is available in 5, 10, and 20 day run times.
