Advances in real-time data collection and communication have been incorporated in FlashTrak, a new temperature monitoring and tracking system from DeltaTrak, Pleasanton, Calif.

The system was a finalist for best food safety solution at the United Fresh Produce Association expo in early June.

The FlashTrak system can collect data at specified points along the cold chain or during the entire journey from field to fork, according to a news release. It also monitors humidity levels. Wireless loggers are available and can be matched to users’ needs via cloud-based service.

Access to data is secured with algorithms and reporting alarms so users know immediately if unauthorized access is attempted. FlashTrak can be integrated with existing systems and on-demand supply chain management applications through ColdTrak Connect.
