Mefar Pharmaceuticals are a contract manufacturer of pharmaceutical packaging products, as well as providing sterile and cold storage environments. Located in Turkey, they worked with AKCP’s dealer Teknoans to implement a monitoring solution for their new manufacturing facility.
The requirement was to monitor temperature and humidity in their server room and the status of two UPS and electrical panels. The solution provided utilized the AKCP sensorProbe1+ (SP1+) with built-in temperature sensor and dry contact. For the UPS and electrical panel, a sensorProbeX+ (SPX+) was installed. This customized SPX+ consisted of a 4G cellular modem, with built in backup battery power, 8 sensor ports and 10 dry contact module.
The 4G cellular modem allows alerts to be sent via e-mail and SMS without the need for the local area network. The built-in battery backup means that even if all other local networks are down, the SPX+ can still communicate to alert the operator, even in the absence of power.
An AC Voltage Sensor on the SPX+ monitors the building power supply and alerts if there is a power outage, allowing rapid response to critical power issues, ensuring the cold chain and clean rooms remain in operation.
A Dual Temperature and Humidity Sensor on the SPX+ monitors the environmental conditions in the server room to give advance notice should cooling systems fail, which can lead to shutdown of critical equipment.
Mefar Pharmaceuticals selected AKCP as they previously had the same system installed in their facilities. Their good experience with the products gave them the confidence to proceed with the same solutions in their new facility.
