Proof of Best Practices:
In the federal Vaccines for Children program, improper refrigeration is a leading cause of lost vaccine. In fact, the CDC’s 2014 Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit states that the best way to avoid losing these valuable vaccine supplies is to use a temperature monitoring device for every medical storage unit.
Without a device in place, often no one notices or takes action when a storage unit’s temperature readings go outside safe limits. Likewise, any gaps in vaccine temperature documentation may lead to an inspector judging your supply to be unsafe and disposed of.
The solution is Accsense! Each A2-05-W wireless datalogger has inputs for two external RTD temperature probes and an additional input for a thermocouple. A2-05 pods are a low-cost way to monitor a combination medical refrigerator/freezer unit or two storage units at distributed points.
Accsense installations are simple–just place the data logger on the side or on top of a medical storage unit using the supplied Velcro. With the A2-05-W there’s no need to install wiring or purchase a gateway. Using a standard WiFi connection to the internet, the wireless data logger quickly connects to your WiFi Network. The A2-05-W supports 802.11a/b/g/n specifications and also supports WEP, WPA, WPA2, 802.11i and 802.1x Supplicant.
Alarms originate from a remote server system with redundant power, so if your facility’s power or internet service fails, you will immediately get an alarm notification. Only Accsense offers this capability! In case of a power failure or network connection loss, the data logger has an internal lithium battery to keep running for 6 hours, during which it will continue to buffer data and store up to 256 data points or until connection is restored.
Using your Accsense Online Account, you can login through any Web browser to view data in real time and access each pod’s historic data. It’s easy to view reports and graphs from anywhere an internet connection is available, including your mobile device. To comply with regulations, just logon to our secure cloud servers to show regulators your entire temperature history. Data can also be exported in .csv format to popular spreadsheet programs like Excel™.
