DataNet Solution: Monitoring Temperature and Humidity During Production within a Pharmaceutical Laboratory

Good manufacturing practice guidelines provide guidance for manufacturing, testing and quality assurance in order to ensure that a drug product is safe for human consumption. Many countries have legislated that pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers follow procedures and create their own guidelines that correspond with their legislation.

About the Customer:

A large Pharmaceutical Laboratory in Spain which produces solutions and drugs for hospitals and other Health Care Facilities.

Key Customer Challenges:

To control temperature within the production chambers in order to to optimize and control the temperature and humidity during production.

DataNet Implementation:

This particular wireless system consists of a DNR900A receiver, which is mandatory for every network and forms the wireless network managing each device that connects to it, as well as two DNR910A loggers, which handle all interaction between the logger and the PC, and in addition, an audible and visual alarm with a sampling rate of one sample every 10 minutes.

Measurable Results:

Full temperature control in climatic chambers around the clock with system alarm notifications via SMS for offsite warnings and external siren for onsite warnings in real-time which can be connected to each logger or receiver. Internal memory on all units stores data constantly, allowing full data retrieval and transfer at any time, even when disruptions occur, resulting in zero data loss. ZigBee technology overcomes transmission obstacles, automatically finding the most cost effective, efficient and secured data path to the PC. The intelligent system remains flexible and trustworthy for constant scalable and reliable monitoring. Using the data export to Excel feature proves data integrity and the intuitive Reports module provides transparent data records for achieving regulatory compliance.
