Cambridge, UK – Food Tracker systems from Datapaq ensure highly efficient process monitoring and HACCP documentation at the click of a key. In addition to complete temperature profiles and extensive alarm and reporting functions, they offer multiple simultaneous food lethality calculations (F0/Pu value, D-value, chill rate Critical Control Point) and an optimization function that predicts the effect of parameter changes on the process without repeated trial runs. A state-of-art 6 or 8-channel data logger from the MultiPaq21 series guarantees high accuracy, high resolution, and large memory without data loss. Designed for efficient operation, it manages eight consecutive measurement runs before data download to a computer. A start/stop button and an alternative time or temperature trigger provide true ease of use.
