CustomSense electronic temperature indicator REFRIGERATED

CustomSense electronic temperature indicators provide an accurate and clearly visible indication when a shipment has experienced a temperature excursion outside of the product guidelines.

CustomSense electronic temperature indicators provide an accurate and clearly visible indication when a shipment has experienced a temperature excursion outside of the product guidelines. A monitoring program using CustomSense will identify potential quality issues before they reach customers and provide traceability and accountability for issues across the supply chain.

CustomSense electronic temperature indicators are ideal for many cold chain applications. They combine high and low temperature monitoring in one single device and come pre-programmed with settings to match standard life science temperature ranges.


Currently available in four standard configurations:

  1. REFRIGERATED – Low alarm 2°C and High alarm 8°C
  2. FREEZE – Low alarm 0°C
  3. CRT (Controlled Room Temp) – Low alarm 15°C and High alarm 25°C
  4. FROZEN – Low alarm -25°C and High alarm -15°C

Easy to Use

Green_tick Simple Activation with the push of a button on the front of the indicator
Green_tick Large Print display of temperature ranges to avoid confusion of what is being monitored
Green_tick Clear LED Indication of Pass/Fail takes guesswork out of determining product status
Green_tick Adhesive Backing making it easy to affix indicator to package or product surface
Green_tick Four Pre-programmed Temperature Ranges that cover life sciences monitoring needs

Precision, Accuracy, & Quality

  • Monitors Temperature at 5-minute intervals
  • Indicates cumulative excursion of 30 minutes or more
  • Temperature Accuracy of +/- 0.5C from 0°C – 80°C
  • Battery Life of 3 years on the shelf and 90 days once activated
  • NIST® Traceable by device

Tamper Avoidance

  • Activation is irreversible so indicators cannot be stopped during a journey
  • Indicators are Serialized with unique identifier and matching label to apply to shipping documents for verification

Indicator LEDs
The indicator LEDs will flash based on the status of the indicator:
– Indicator ON, Acclimating: “Within Range” flashes twice every 4 seconds
– Indicator ON, Within Range: “Within Range” flashes once every 4 seconds
– Indicator ON, High Excursion: “Exceed High Limit” flashes once every 4 seconds
– Indicator ON, Low Excursion: “Exceed Low Limit” flashes once every 4 seconds

How it Works

To activate, press the “Push to Activate” button once.

The “Within Range” LED will blink twice every 4 seconds during the acclimation period of 30 mins.

After the 30 minute acclimation period, the “Within Range” LED will blink once every 4 seconds when the product is within the specified temperature range. The indicator is now ready to monitor your product.

If there is a temperature excursion over the high limit, the High Limit LED will blink red when it exceeds 30 minutes of cumulative time above the stated high threshold

If there is a temperature excursion under the low limit, the Low Limit LED will blink red when it exceeds 30 minutes of cumulative time below the stated threshold

If both the high and low limits exceed 30 minutes  (cumulative), both the High and Low LED’s will flash red once every four seconds
