FEBRUARY 15, 2019
Bassersdorf, Switzerland: – Leading international measurement solutions specialist Rotronic is helping a world-class pharmaceutical logistics provider to protect its valuable temperature-controlled stock.
Singapore-based Keppel Logistics operates world-class logistics facilities across Europe, Asia and the Pacific and relies on the new Rotronic Monitoring System (RMS) in their state-of-the-art warehouses.
Real-time environmental data
Customers in the pharmaceuticals sector often utilize air conditioned storage spaces. In Keppel’s storage facilities, temperature monitoring is crucial.
It is vital for Keppel to be able to perform real-time monitoring, allowing its customers direct access to current environmental data on their goods from anywhere in the world and at any time.
Cloud and server solutions
Furthermore, Keppel required a simple way to collect data, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the data. Based upon Keppel’s and their customers’ requirements, the Rotronic Monitoring System was implemented, allowing real-time monitoring and data recording, and meeting the GDP requirements of FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
Rotronic was able to offer two solutions: either a cloud-based system or a server-based system installed directly at Keppel Logistics.
All temperature points are automatically uploaded to the system.. Customers can also receive regular personalized reports remotely with secure access via login. With no more manual data collection, this saves a vast amount of time with data accessible via PC or mobile devices from any location.
At present Keppel measures only temperature. However the extended capabilities of RMS now allows the company monitor further parameters, such as relative humidity, dew point and differential pressure, also door contacts, and much more.
The flexibility and connectivity of RMS also allows third-party products to be integrated into the Keppel data network without any issues.
Rotronic is an international development and manufacturing company that offers a wide range of products and solutions in the B2B segment. Founded in 1965, the company is headquartered in Switzerland and provides solutions for measuring and monitoring relative humidity, temperature, CO2, differential pressure, pressure, flow, dew point, and water activity. The company began the digital transformation already in the year 2000, investing in automated data transfer (machine-to-machine). With the development and launch of its RMS monitoring software, Rotronic further strengthened its position as a key supplier of measurement solutions.
