thermotracker by thermohauser – systematic temperature logging
The thermotracker system is as comprehensive as possible while avoiding unnecessary design frills. The insulated boxes with sensor frames and the handheld devices are all easy to use, very robust and durable. There is no need for extensive training because everything is so intuitive to use. The online portal can be configured to meet your specific requirements. This only needs to be done once, and then you are just a few steps away from the required results. The thermotracker system is impressively practical and easy to use!
Preparation made easy – with the Gastrostar GN 1/1 insulated boxes
Freshly cooked, high-quality food should reach its destination at the perfect temperature and in flawless condition. As well as making sure the containers are filled correctly, appropriate insulated boxes are crucial to ensure a constant temperature during transportation and waiting periods.
The insulated boxes in the Gastrostar GN 1/1 range are the perfect choice here (although the thermotracker system can also be used with other packaging solutions).
All you need to do is put the specially designed sensor frame on the insulated box instead of the lid. Next, you fill the insulated box as usual with the pre-prepared food (for example in suitable GN containers) and position the temperature probes used by the sensor frame in the desired location in the box or directly against the food. The box is closed with the lid and ready for use in just a few steps.
Enable the thermotracker sensor – and the logging process begins
The sensor located in the frame is enabled with an appropriate activation system – a smartphone or Android handheld device on which the thermotracker app has been installed, which is available free from the Google Play Store. From this moment on, the temperature inside the insulated box will be checked and recorded following a defined schedule.
At delivery, all you need to do is glance at the app – normally you will see a thumbs up symbol in bright green. This means everything is ok, the temperature curve has remained within the target range throughout the delivery period. The customer confirms receipt using an electronic signature and the delivery is successfully completed.
There are lots of suitable Android smartphones that fulfil the technical requirements for using the thermotracker app. It is easy to check these requirements and the thermohauser team will be happy to advise you.
For example, we can unreservedly recommend the Caterpillar CAT 42 H+, a robust, waterproof, drop-proof device that can handle the rigorous demands of everyday kitchen life. It can be cleaned with hot water and soap, which is a massive benefit in terms of hygiene. Another advantage is that the device can be operated without a SIM lock.
Logging and evaluation in the thermotracker online portal – all data available at any time
Many kitchen managers face the same bureaucratic challenge: how can you create a transparent, audit-compliant, space-saving but straightforward system for retaining recorded measurements, logs and ratings?
The thermotracker system makes this easy – the licence for the online portal offers the option of managing up to 15 sensors in one tool. You do not even need to install any software on your computer – the functionality is readily available via any web browser by using your login details. As soon as the smartphone with the thermotracker app connects to the wireless network (or if it is permanently enabled via a paid data connection), the recorded data will be transmitted to the online portal and can be retrieved and used there for the statutory retention period of two years.
The online portal allows you to maintain your delivery locations, define specific targets, and create individual evaluations in graph and table format for auditing bodies. No more mountains of paperwork or folders; all the relevant temperature-control evidence during food delivery is available in just a single step.
