RF542 Remote Temperature Monitor

Temperature Data Network Logger with Alarms

The Comark RF542 temperature data monitor collects real-time temperature data via Ethernet connection on to the existing local area network (LAN). These LAN temperature data monitors can be used in conjunction with Comark’s RF500 Wireless Monitoring Range to extend the flexibility of the system even further with a mix of wireless and network data collection. Alternatively, for operations with several small remote sites, each site can be monitored with data transmitted via the LAN to an RF500 Gateway to provide full reporting and alarms on temperature data at a central location without the need for a full wireless system. RF542 can monitor two temperature points from up to 64 different locations using one Comark RF500A Gateway! The range of temperature sensors further extends flexibility with duplex probe models enabling two points of external monitoring from one device. All RF500 data collection models are programmed via an RF500A Gateway … Read more

USDA reccomends Comark Wireless

USDA Approves Comark RF500 Wireless System for use in Cold Treatment

The Comark RF500 Wireless Temperature Monitoring System is approved by the USDA’s Treatment Quality Assurance Unit for use in data collection for Cold Treatment of imported produce. To prevent introduction of Mediterranean fruit flies, Asian longhorned beetles, and other such pests into the United States, all imported produce must be quarantined and processed according to standards set by USDA. The “CT” or Cold Treatment process, is one of such treatments being monitored by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine, and the Center for Plant Health Science and Technology  (APHIS, PPQ, CPHST). The process involves holding of produce at a set temperature range for a specified time window. The USDA specifies instrument accuracy and data collection qualifications for equipment used to document that the Cold Treatment procedure has been completed accurately.  They test, approve, and publish … Read more
