Prove the Safety, Quality and ROI for Your Monitoring Products
Ryan Systems announces Emerald
A breakthrough smartphone-connected wireless
temperature recorder for cold-chain monitoring
November 14, 2013, Ryan Systems Inc., a leading tester of temperature and environmental parameter monitoring solutions in the cold-chain, life science, and food safety fields, announces the release of Emerald™, a wireless temperature tracker that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Slightly larger than a wristwatch; Emerald monitors temperature-sensitive goods during transit and in storage. Emerald stores up to 4,000 temperature readings and does not require any dedicated computer equipment or complex installations. The EmeraldView™ application for smartphone connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to program Emerald devices, view data, and optionally upload the information –including geo location information provided by the smartphone –to the Cloud, where authorized parties can check the latest status in just a few seconds.
Emerald units are now available for you to purchase in small quantities so you can test this technology in your own environment. You may order with or without data uploads to the cloud. The units collect and transmit temperature and GPS data and allow you to use your cell phone to view temperature profiles and geographical locations. The units can be set to establish upper and lower temperature limits and send alerts for violations of your carrier specifications. Other information is provided below. The price is $119 per unit until December 31, 2013 when the $149/unit price will go into effect. You can order directly by clicking on the "TransCert Products" link on the left or by filling out the form below.
We test traceability and monitoring products and systems for companies that design new solutions and wish to have them tested under actual field conditions. We work with your technology team members to design tests for tags, readers, loggers, recorders, labels and other sensor enabled devices. Lab testing provides early and first-line data regarding product and system performance, but until field testing is completed in pilot projects, most product improvement information is unavailable.
There many supply chain businesses interested in gaining new knowledge and testing new technologies to determine whether or a your solution will work under their shipping and compliance conditions. Our job is to find them, match their requirements to your test needs and present testing opportunities to your staff.
Your Products Tested Under Real World Conditions
Ryan Systems provides quality control testing for technology providers to the transportation sector and for the companies that depend on traceable and controlled transportation services. The company specializes in supply chain compliance and delivery control and helps supply chain clients guarantee the safety and quality of delivered products.
RFID, RF, GPS, Satellite, Cell, Data Loggers, Tags, Readers
We have experience with many types of technology and are happy to combine multiple tests into single runs. This strategy helps to keep test costs low while gaining more information and cross compare results during test cycles.
Local or International Routing
Regardless of the length of testing cycles, we will help install, track and return your equipment along with all relevant data. We work with local and international companies and have tested systems capable of simple to more complex (cell or satellite) over short hauls or through oceanic shipments. Local processed or producer shipments may only cover a few dozen miles via truck into a distribution center before trucking to retail outlets. Pre cool may be involved along with distribution center and retail coolers. Local routes can be tested through any phases selected by your team.
Bins, Pallets, Cases or Containers
Regardless of the size of the shipments or the level of monitoring your products are designed for, we will accommodate testing to cover any and all shipment levels, usually within the same testing cycles.
Air, Truck or Ship
Regardless of the mode of transport, we will work to find the routing needed to help you comply with your customers' requirements. We know that most products move from one mode of transportation to another without notification. We will work to assure that your product is fairly tested in these diverse environments.
Independent Parallel Reporting
Ryan Systems uses separate test equipment to provide an independent reporting structure that allows you to see how your system performs compared to our independent measurements.
Helping You to Find New Markets and Gain Recognition
Our testing results in reports that you may use as white papers, in press releases or for publication in any of your favorite industry trade magazine.
All reporting and testing is confidential and provided to your company to allow you to retain copyrights and distribution rights.
Ryan Systems works closely with our certification body associates at Transportation Certifiers (TransCert.com) to test and certify your installation and maintenance staff and the procedures they use on an ongoing basis. Certification provides your customer base with independent compliance to standards.
Can you meet new FDA record keeping requirements for bins, trays, totes and other containers used to hold and move food?
You should know that the FDA requires these containers to be sanitized, traceable and to have complete records on file.
FSMA tracking and record keeping rules require that pails, bins, trays, totes, carts and other containers used during farm harvests, in packing houses, processing or distribution center handling or in delivery operations are required to be sanitized, traceable and must have records to prove container control. Preventing cross contamination is the name of the game.
We have a fully automated system for sanitizing, tracking and record keeping for small containers used in food handling and moving processes. The system is designed to greatly reduce FSMA impact to man hour and record keeping requirements.
Did you know that your company's success and protection from liability depends on your ability to defend the food safety, quality and traceability that your suppliers and shippers bring to the supply chain? Liability for what you produce, ship, distribute or handle extends both up and downstream from you. If you handle it, grow it, or sell it without knowing the condition of the product, you are the one that is liable.
That's how the new Food Safety Modernization Act views things.
International and local supply chain participants in the food trade marketplace must be able to provide proof of food safety conditions and certification. All members must be able to trace food back to the producer and track it to the customer. All suppliers along the food supply chain must be able to measure and eliminate risks. These are not simple tasks.
