Navy Exchange Guam – Cold Storage Monitoring

NEX Warehouse - Cold Storage MonitoringThe Navy Exchange (NEX) in Guam has been so impressed with the sensorProbe unit they upgraded to the securityProbe along with 4 water-resistant temperature sensors.

NEX Distribution Center is responsible for all frozen food storage and distribution of these products to all NEX locations located with Navy facilities throughout Guam.

The AKCP devices provide real-time monitoring of their cold storage environment using a LAN. Historical graphs are continuously available showing daily, weekly, monthly, and annual readings.

Freezer temperatures stay constantly between -20C and -23C with a recorded accuracy within a tenth of a degree.

The NEX freezer in Guam is approximately 1200 square meters with an airlock at each end.  This freezer runs temperature between approximately -24C to -17C. The temperature in the airlocks hold is about 3C. This temperature monitoring system provides 4 sensors that can be remotely accessed from the LAN.

The data is available in real-time as well as recording history and the ability to set high temp alarms that generate notifications. NEX was especially impressed at the ease of installation and that each probe capable of being located up to 300 meters away from the securityProbe.

The next stage of NEX development is to look at getting a full access control system installed enabling complete control via the AKCPro Server application.

“For this installation cost was a major consideration and the AKCP system was installed at a very cost-effective level.”
