A new sensor alerts plant monitors, either by sound or through the
Internet, when unplanned changes in temperature could compromise
the safety of their products.

Weiss Instruments's XJ500 monitor and web-based XWEB System are suited for restaurants, institutional food service operations, convenience stores, supermarkets, warehouses and food processingplants.

Users can start with a smaller package with alarms and grow their system to Internet-based control and supervision.

The system has the ability to record temperatures, along with compressor, fan, and defrost run times. Alarms can be faxed or e-mailed to multiple locations when the systems perform abnormally.

"With our XJ500 and XWEB systems, you can be alerted to a small problem before it becomes a big one,"​ Weiss stated.

The system can also control and monitor reach-in refrigerators, walk-ins, freezers, hot food cabinets, ovens, ware-washing and lighting control.

Used along with Weiss's iCool wireless connections, the system eliminates the need for mechanical thermostats, time clocks, thermometers and wiring.

The system has the ability to automatically print all temperatures as often as the user wants.
