Emanate Wireless unveils artificial intelligence-powered temperature sensors
Emanate Wireless, a vendor of systems that continuously monitor key clinical assets at healthcare facilities, introduced at HIMSS17 two new temperature sensors for its PowerPath Temp Solution. Emanate expects commercial shipment of both new temperature sensors to begin in the second quarter.
“These two sensors add value to our current offering by supporting additional types of devices, and by making installation faster, which leads to cost savings for our customers,” said Neil Diener, co-founder and CEO of Emanate Wireless.
The first new temperature sensor is an expanded range device capable of measuring down to -200 Celsius. This ultra-low temperature sensor enables the PowerPath Temp Solution to be used to monitor Cryogenic freezers and other deep freezers used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The expanded range sensor works with all PowerPath Temp Monitors.
The second new temperature sensor is a wireless Bluetooth Low Energy device. The wireless sensor makes it simple to deploy the PowerPath Temp Solution: Just plug in the monitor in-line with the AC power cord of the refrigerator to monitor AC current and the operation of the refrigeration unit, then place the wireless sensor inside the refrigerator to monitor temperature, the vendor said. This gets rid of the need for temperature cabling – the wireless sensor communicates with the monitor device using Bluetooth Low Energy.
