Sudden freezer failures are a fact of life in a research facility. Or are they? Existing monitoring systems are based on temperature, which is not predictive in nature, showing only that a problem has already occurred. TRAXX EKG goes a step further and monitors the temperature and energy consumption of each freezer via a WiFi or 3G network, allowing us to predict the behavior of an asset. Why energy consumption? While it sounds like a play from the sustainability book, the reality is that changes in performance correlate directly with energy consumption and problems are almost always suggested days, weeks, or even months before a catastrophic failure. TRAXX analytics constantly survey the data coming out of your freezers looking for changes from minute to minute, day to day, and month to month.
Who benefits? Take your pick. If you’re a researcher, rest easy knowing that your samples are protected with the most sophisticated predictive alarm system on the market today. In addition to extremely powerful and unique analytics, TRAXX is a web-based product meaning you can check the status of your assets from your computer, smart phone, or tablet whenever you want. Don’t want to check? No problem, you’ll be alerted of changing performance and, of course, temperature based on the parameters you set. In addition to the immediate alarms prompted by at-risk freezers, TRAXX will also notify you of freezers that have degraded over a longer time frame. If you’re a facilities manager, utilize our analytics to optimize the performance for a room, building, or whole facility.
In short; save energy, reduce maintenance costs, and extend the useful life of your Ultra-Low Temperature freezers, -20s, +4s, incubators, and walk-ins.
