Cargo Data Corp., Ventura Calif., introduced its Quality USB temperature recorder.

The small, digital device can be used to monitor perishable shipments both domestic and overseas, according to a news release.

Quality USB features a LCD screen that shows temperature data without the need to connect to a computer.

Optimized with Cargo Data’s free KoldLink software, the new recorder allows users to view, print, archive and e-mail data directly from the program, as well as upload to the Cargo Data website . This removes the need for paper strip chart recorders, according to the release.

Users with the recorder ID number can view, download and print temperature charts from the secure website.

“Quality USB is small enough to place inside a carton and is provided in a food safe moisture-protective pouch to keep it clean and dry. This makes Quality USB the perfect recorder for iced, wet, and corrosive shipments,” Roger Niebolt, sales manager, said in the release.
