OCEASOFT leverages cutting-edge IoT communication networks to support shipping and logistics cycles for temperature-sensitive products with its new mobile temperature data logger, Cobalt ML3, featuring LoRaWan, the LoRa Alliance's long-range communication protocol.


Tracking the temperature of sensitive and perishable products during transport is a real industry challenge. The growing requirement for traceability has led to increasing expenses related to monitoring the cold chain: it is expected that 6.23 billion dollars ($) will be spent annually for monitoring by 20221.


OCEASOFT, a member of the LoRa Alliance, developed the Cobalt ML3 solution to meet challenges in the transport industry. Cobalt ML3 connected data logger takes care of temperature traceability during product logistics phases, leveraging specialized long-range wireless technology.


The Cobalt ML3 solution has been chosen by Dispam Groupe 2M, a French expert in refrigerated truck transport, with a deployment in progress for its entire vehicle fleet to ensure end-to-end temperature tracking for its customers.


The solution automatically collects temperature data recorded by Cobalt ML3 modules and transfers the information to a secure Cloud platform via a network of receivers using the LoRaWan™ protocol.


Now, with the new solution from OCEASOFT, no human intervention is needed to ensure continuous temperature monitoring across the entire logistics chain.


Cobalt ML3 can also use the public network to upload geolocation information about a container or vehicle.


Simple and secure: setup is fast and intuitive, with configuration and data access data simplified by the CobaltView companion web application PC, tablet, and smartphone. Temperature readings are stored in the Cobalt ML3 module's internal memory as well as on the secure OCEASOFT Cloud platform, OCEACloud. A Cloud application development interface (API) is also available, enabling data to be integrated with third-party information systems. In case of anomalies, such as out-of-bounds temperatures, alerts can be sent 24/7 by e-mail, SMS/text message, or voice message via the OCEAlert platform.


Cobalt ML3 is designed to keep up-front investment and maintenance costs down, using low-energy-consumption technologies enabling battery life up to one year. Battery operation further helps make installation fast and easy. An external waterproof, protective casing can be used for logistics and transport applications requiring additional robustness.


Cobalt ML3 respects regulatory standards, notably EN 12830 and 21 CFR Part 11.
