Monnit Wins the 2024 IoT Evolution Asset Tracking Award

Monnit Wins Asset Tracking Award

Company Honored for Excellent Innovation in Burgeoning Internet of Things Market Segment

SALT LAKE CITY—June 4, 2024—Monnit announced today that its Cold Chain IoT Asset Tracking Solution won the 2024 IoT Evolution Asset Tracking Award from IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering the Internet of Things (IoT) movement.

The award honors innovation excellence in IoT technologies to automate asset tracking functions to increase efficiencies, reduce theft, or optimize asset utilization.

"Asset management is an operational and capital necessity in nearly every industry," said Monnit Founder and CEO Brad Walters. "Cold chain asset monitoring is a prime use case for implementing wireless IoT sensor solutions to protect critical and temperature-sensitive assets. It's an honor to be recognized for achieving this through our IoT ingenuity."

"It is my pleasure to recognize Monnit with an IoT Evolution Asset Tracking Award for its continued innovation," said Carl Ford, Community Developer, IoT Evolution World. "As a leader in this rapidly evolving industry, I look forward to seeing Monnit's future successes."

Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions Boost Cold Chain Efficiency and Compliance

Perishable products in the food services, medical, and pharmaceutical markets must stay safe and remain high-quality from farm to fork or manufacturing through consumption. Maintaining cold chain compliance is imperative to prevent spoilage and wastage of high-value assets.

Monnit supports many customers with IoT solutions for asset tracking and condition monitoring to help them keep accurate records, protect ingredients and products, and preserve quality throughout their cold chain processes.

Our innovative IoT sensors, gateways, and cloud platforms run tirelessly to ensure cold chain managers have data to stay efficient, maintain safety, and comply with government and industry regulations. Agriculture, food processing, grocery, restaurant, bioscience laboratory, pharmaceutical, and health care professionals rely on our remote monitoring solutions.

Key IoT Solutions Track Critical Cold Chain Assets

Whether the cold chain is for food services or vaccines, Monnit offers several sensors to support it. However, the core IoT long-range, wireless devices that track asset conditions across a cold chain are the Monnit:

  • ALTA® Low Temperature Sensor
  • ALTA® Digital Temperature Sensor
  • ALTA XL® IoT Gateway

In labs, clean rooms, hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and pop-up facilities, these essential tracking devices continually work behind the scenes to ensure health care or pharmaceutical cold chains are secure, data-logging loops from production to patient.

Patient data is critical to help diagnose many symptoms and prescribe treatment. Likewise, data from an IoT sensor network that monitors many vital conditions, like ultralow freezer temperature in a vaccine cold chain, can be just as critical to effective health care.

Similarly, these IoT sensors and wireless connectivity in our Monnit IoT Asset Tracking Solutions preserve an uninterrupted cold chain for food services, from ingredient sourcing to production plants to commercial kitchens.

Monnit Cold Chain IoT Asset Tracking Solution for Food Services, Pharmaceuticals, and Health Care

You can create a mobile wireless IoT cold chain network in 15 minutes or less by connecting Monnit ALTA Sensors to an ALTA XL Cellular IoT Gateway using iMonnit Cloud Software. Then, you can configure ALTA Sensors and remotely monitor equipment and asset conditions through iMonnit mobile and desktop dashboards.

ALTA Low Temperature Sensor

Cold chains are highly regulated, temperature-controlled environments where assets are created, stored, and distributed optimally. As a compliant data logger, the Monnit ALTA Wireless Low Temperature Sensor can be attached to or installed near an ultralow temperature (ULT) freezer and within cold or frozen environments in a lab, vehicle, clinic, carrier, or restaurant. Its lead goes inside a freezer or close to assets. Remotely monitor a range of temperatures at +/- 0.5°C calibrated accuracy from -200°C to 0°C/-328°F to 32°F throughout the cold chain process.

With ALTA Low Temperature Sensors, you can:

  • Receive instant text, email, or call alerts if your preset parameters change.
  • Meet record-keeping, food safety, and chain-of-custody regulations like those of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), EN12830, and the Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 11 from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • Get a 25-month ISO-17025 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certificate.

Vaccine development and distribution wouldn't be effective without our ALTA Low Temperature Sensors. Many vaccines have varying development and storage needs, which require resilient, reliable, and proactive monitoring during the cold chain.

ALTA Low Temperature Sensors streamline data collection and act as the primary or backup monitoring solution to help maintain freezer, transport, and storage temperatures. Epidemiologists, research scientists, lab and food production managers, cooks, and restaurateurs rely on these sensors to monitor temperature-sensitive and highly valuable assets 24/7.

ALTA Digital Temperature Sensor

With a push of a button, you can instantly read temperatures between -40°F (-40°C) and 257°F (125°C) inside a restaurant refrigerator or cooler, biochemistry lab clean room, or cold pharmaceutical storage container. The ALTA Digital Temperature Sensor offers a quick manual update or reading on an LCD to help you maintain constant data auditing, retrieval, and redundancy mandates for your operations.

In addition to the simple necessity of getting an instant digitally displayed temperature reading, you can press the Read button to send time-stamped data to iMonnit and create a data log. The sensor also provides automated data logging and sends alerts via text, email, or call should temperatures deviate from preset thresholds. The ALTA Digital Temperature Sensor helps you meet FDA 21 CFR Part 11B regulations, local and state health codes, and CDC mandates.

ALTA XL IoT Gateway

ALTA Sensors can send cold chain data wirelessly 2,000+ feet through 18+ walls to an ALTA XL IoT Gateway. The gateway combines a powerful wireless transceiver with up to 1-watt transmission strength, an amplified receiver, and advanced 4G LTE CAT-M1/NB2 cellular technology.

This allows the ALTA XL IoT Gateway to send and receive data communications for greater wireless reach. The gateway and the iMonnit Mobile App collaborate to connect and manage ALTA Sensors over the Internet, making their data accessible virtually anytime, anywhere. A GNSS location chipset supporting GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS satellites collects gateway location data that can be distributed via an application programming interface (API).

Confidently Control Temperature Throughout a Cold Chain

The Monnit Cold Chain IoT Asset Tracking Solution helps you seamlessly maintain the temperature and ensure the safety of perishable products from production to the final destination.
