Powerhouse Dynamics, creator of eMonitor energy, water, and asset management system, has announced a critical new food safety feature. It has been designed to support chain restaurants' need to monitor refrigeration and food preparation equipment temperatures across all locations. Now available to eMonitor users, the "Food Safety Scorecard" proactively identifies equipment in danger of non-compliance, so corrective action can quickly be taken.
The Food Safety Scorecard is enabled by temperature sensors installed in relevant equipment. The temperature data is combined with other data and uploaded every 60 seconds to the eMonitor servers where it is tracked and analyzed. By integrating temperature and power consumption data, the system enables facility managers to readily and remotely diagnose equipment performance issues before they become equipment emergencies. Managers are also alerted, in real time, to issues with individual pieces of equipment that could compromise food safety.
With this new eMonitor feature, customers can easily track the performance of refrigeration and food preparation assets across their full portfolios of restaurants, helping to ensure a consistently high-quality and safe product.
