E-Control Systems IntelliSense™ family of wireless hot and cold temperature monitoring solutions includes low cost hardware and software elements needed to monitor equipment and processes for School Food Service and Healthcare Food Service. Temperature monitoring and other data is collected through Wireless Temperature Sensor Units (IntelliSensor™), transmitted wirelessly to an IntelliGate™ Unit that consolidates, encrypts and sends the data over Ethernet. Data can then be viewed with a standard web browser anywhere over the web. Abnormal conditions (alerts) generated by the system are sent over e-mail, cell phones, or pagers. Each IntelliGate™ (the school Gateway) has a dry contact output that allows it to be connected to a local alarm system at each school. This allows local, in addition to remote notifications of any alarms in the refrigeration system. These alarm notifications operate even if the network connection is not working.
IntelliCheck™ is a complete web-based handheld PDA for taking product temperature readings, managing and deploying HACCP inspection programs for the Food Service Industry. IntelliCheck™ includes an integrated corrective action system that makes sure operators fix problems as soon as they are detected.
IntelliCheck™ is designed to eliminate cumbersome form-based data collection. No more filling out checklist by hand and stuffing them into a filing cabinet. With this Intelli PDA you simply press a single button and let the system do the rest. All the data is automatically uploaded to the central server.
IntelliProbe™ combined with the IntelliCheck™ provides a complete mobile temperature logging solution. Press the button on the IntelliProbe™ to measure temperatures, and the data is automatically sent to your computer for convenient retrieval at a later time. IntelliCheck™ stores all of your sensitive data in a secure central location for easy retrieval from any computer on your network.
Temperature readings are done through the IntelliProbe™, E-Control Systems new Bluetooth Wireless Temperature Probe, the only completely wireless temperature logging solution on the market. No need to worry about dangling wires into food or burning wires on the stove. The IntelliProbe™ features an iButton™ reader at its base for reading iButton™ data tags. Coin sized buttons can be easily installed at any inspection station. Operators checking that station simply touch the base of the IntelliProbe™ to the button which automatically brings up that station’s checklist or schedule.
