FreshView Smart Station

Monitoring system the size of a shoebox

Pacific Data Systems has brought out the FreshView Smart Station, a more compact version of the EC-12 system. This more compact version still has many of the features of the original EC-12 system but is just the size of a shoe box.

"This is a monitoring unit," explains Paul Gapes, General Manager at Pacific Data Systems. "It is not just for use in ripening rooms but also in storage spaces where people want try to get an idea of how much ethylene is being produced naturally by the produce. They can then decide if is it necessary to employ ethylene removal systems or other air purifying systems, such as the BioTurbo from Miatech."

Some companies just want to monitor the storage spaces or coldrooms, so they don't need the larger system, space can also be an issue and the more compact version works better as it limits the likelihood of impact damage from forklifts.

The technology is similar to email/SMS reporting and users can log into the webportal to check their cool/cold rooms. The Smart Station has the ability to email/SMS alarms to single or multiple recipients ensuring peace of mind for operators outside of normal operating hours.

For example a company may need to monitor 10 different distribution centres from one central office and the FreshView Smart System can do this via a modem placed at each site. The system can also monitor temperature, humidity, CO2 as well as ethylene.

Quality Assurance people can use the Smart Station to collect the data they need to manage these parameters accurately and efficiently in controlled atmosphere facilities, cold storage and de-greening facilities.
