TempTRIP offers a cost-effective way to monitor time/temperature data in the supply chain. The system incorporates three basic components--RFID smart cards, RFID reader with optional integrated barcode scanner, and the Internet. The smart card is placed on the pallet or other designated location such as an individual case or in certain locations within a trailer load, depending on the level of detail desired. The reader scans the pallet's bar code and writes it, wirelessly, to the smart card's memory. Temperature is recorded continuously, at whatever time intervals are specified. Results are sent, via USB or cellular transmission, to a dedicated page on the Internet, with optional email and text alerts sent to the chain partners.
