CustomSense 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.


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, push the activate button once.

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

> 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
