Real time data collection from inside packaged food

27 August 2017

EMCO Packaging has developed a data logger that is able to collect environmental data from the inside of a food pack. It is able to measure oxygen content, temperature, relative humidity and pressure from the time the food is packed on the production line, through storage, transport and even while it is on display at the retailer.

The data logger is able to communicate wirelessly and can also store up to 300,000 records in memory for later USB download.

By accurately monitoring the environmental conditions from inside the pack, the system provides the data necessary to analyse any changes, trends or conditions and to optimise each part of the process - from the packaging materials themselves, through to storage, transport and display conditions. 

The data logger is just 65mm x 50mm x 37mm. Oxygen and humidity are measured to a resolution of 0.05% and 0.04% respectively, temperature to an accuracy resolution of 0.01% and pressure to a 16 bit resolution over a range of 10 - 1200mbar.
