Ambient temperature monitoring during animal transport

Integrate ELA Innovation temperature sensors into your connected transport solutions.

Ambient temperature monitoring: why is it essential for animal transport?

Each year billions of live animals are transported, imported or exported around the world by road, rail, air or sea. In order to protect the well-being of these animals during transport, many countries are adopting increasingly strict regulations concerning the conditions of animal transport.


These rules concern, among other things, the number of animals, the means of transport, the design of the vehicle and the equipment it has.


To meet this challenge and allow carriers to security and welfare of animals for which they are responsible, we advise you to integrate ambient temperature monitoring into your IoT solution, thanks to ELA Innovation Bluetooth Low Energy sensors. Indeed, the use of a connected sensor will facilitate temperature readings and allow transporters to make the transport of live animals more reliable and secure.

To meet this challenge, farmers and animal owners must be provided with transparent monitoring capabilities for life-saving factors such as animal movement patterns, vaccination status, and temperature fluctuations, in order to prevent disease and enable early detection of emergencies.

Moreover, animal tracking data plays an essential role in addressing environmental issues such as climate change, land use change, biodiversity loss, invasive species, wildlife illegal trade.

To achieve this, we recommend integrating motion sensors into your IoT solution, taking advantage of ELA Innovation’s Bluetooth Low Energy sensors. These sensors offer advanced functionality, facilitating effective and efficient animal tracking and management.

How does ambient temperature monitoring work for animal transport?

In this case of use, we recommend using a temperature sensor with a remote probe, in order to ensure extremely accurate measurements while guaranteeing the integrity of the sensors. Simply attach the sensor to the outside of the trailer and place the probe inside the trailer to measure the ambient temperature. The sensor can record and time-stamp up to 4,000 values and will transmit at regular intervals to be detected by the telematics box in the driver’s cab.

This multi-connectivity box will be able to receive the sensor data via Bluetooth and transmit it to the customer’s cloud/server via 3G/4G. A business application (PC & mobile) will then allow to visualize the data in the form of graphs and dashboards. Temperature thresholds can be defined according to the needs, allowing the truck driver to be alerted in real time if the temperature is exceeded.

Why integrate ELA Innovation's temperature sensors into your animal transport monitoring solution?

The industrial temperature sensors from ELA Innovation are ideal for meeting the need for remote temperature monitoring for many reasons:

Wide measurement range and real time data

With a measurement range of -40 °C to +85 °C (and even -80 °C to +200 °C for the Blue PUCK T-PROBE) and a configurable transmission period, these sensors can cover the most important use cases in the transport of temperature-sensitive goods by transmitting the recorded data in real time.

Certified EN12830 – 2018

The sensors are COFRAC certified (EN12830 – 2018) attesting to their accuracy and calibration according to standards that comply with regulations. This certification is valid on an international scale since the COFRAC organization is affiliated with ILAC.

ELA Innovation also offers a calibration service for temperature sensors in order to guarantee reliable data throughout the life of the product.

100% autonomous

Their battery operation provides up to 18 years of autonomy, ensuring a competitive total cost of ownership.

Compatible with telematics boxes

Equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy technology, these sensors are compatible with the majority of on-board telematics boxes on the market, requiring no additional integration.

Quick and easy installation

Extremely easy to install thanks to the various means of fixation (high performance double-sided sticker or support that can be screwed), these sensors can be mounted on any type of surface and do not require any wiring.
