The Most Adavance Standalone Unit for Portable Temperature & Humidity Monitoring with Location Tracking

The BPTMX pportable, wireless GPS location & temperature/humidity monitoring unit comes in an IP67 waterproof enclosure with integrated GPS and cellular antennas, equipped with an 7800 mAh rechargeable lithium rechargeable battery and an external digital temperature sensor with +/- 0.9˚F (+/- 0.5°C) accuracy. This unit monitors temperature in closed areas such as a refrigerated truck or freezer and transmits every 30 minutes to the cloud platform. The BPTMX is purpose built for tracking temperature status of perishable goods moving through the distribution chain, from warehouse & freezers, to refrigerated trucks, containers and packages.

The Piccolo BPTMX Portable Temperature/Humidity Monitoring GPS unit is not just a hardware product. It's a complete mobile solution packaged with: UDP or TCP/IP communication, flexible and comprehensive local and OTA user configuration tools, OTA diagnostics and API's with various sample codes for simple Plug & Play integration into any 3rd party server.

Digital Temperature Sensor with GPS

Supports up to 6 wired digital temperature sensors (2 can be dual temp/humidity) with an accuracy of +/- 0.5˚C, +/- 0.9˚F.

Extremely Long Battery Life

Assuming temperature readings every 5 minutes but sending the accumulated 12 readings once an hour to the platform, the 7800 mAh battery life will be around 5000 temperature readings.

Temperature Out-Of-Range Alerts

Sends immediate alerts on temperature changes.

How it Works

Key Features

  • Easy Deployment Once placed in the refrigerated area the Piccolo BPTMX is normally in deep sleep mode configured to wake up once every XX minutes, read the temperature/humidity with the current GPS position and send it with a time stamp to the platform.
  • Battery Life Preservation Wakes every XX minutes (configurable, for example every 5 minutes) read the temperature with the battery life and time stamp store it in the Piccolo TMX memory and send all accumulated reading with their respective time stamps to the platform every YY minutes (for example every 60 minutes).
  • Small Size, Rugged Enclosure Fits in parcels & cargo and has an IP67 waterproof enclosure with integrated GPS and cellular antennas.
  • Long Life Battery It is equipped with a an extremely long battery life rechargeable lithium back up battery
  • Comes with one Wired Digital Temperature Sensor with 5 ft Cable and supports up to 6 wired sensors (2 of which can be dual temp/humidity sensors) with +/- 0.5˚ C, +/- 0.9˚F accuracy. Extended cable also available.
  • Auto Alerts Sends immediate alerts on temperature changes.
  • OTA Configuration Easily reconfigure the Piccolo BPTMX Over-The-Air or by sending SMS commands. Reconfigure reporting intervals based as needed.
  • Geofence Operating Mode Uunit can change mode of operation , the frequency of transmitting GPS and temperature when entering a pre-configured geo-fence
    and/or when vibration or movement is detected.
  • Battery Level With every transmission the Piccolo BPTMX will send the current battery level to the server.
  • Fast Charging Fast charge from an external standard 12VDC wall charger via a waterproof connector
    to preserve battery life
