• Wireless Meat Cooking and Cooling Temperature Data Logger

Wireless Meat Cooking and Cooling Temperature Data Logger

RFOT is the most advanced wireless temperature data logger in the meat industry today.

The RFOT’s rugged design, equipped with a flexible piercing probe allows it to be used in the harshest environments. It is perfectly suited for smoke houses, ovens and other cooking processes up to 212°F (100°C) as well as refrigerators and freezers down to -4°F (-20°C). It is completely splash proof and can withstand wash down cycles. This state-of-the-art device records and transmits internal product temperature readings back to a central computer for instant real-time monitoring.

The RFOT never needs to be connected to a computer as it has been designed for two way wireless communication. Full communication can be performed directly from a central PC. In addition to wirelessly transmitting data, the RFOT also stores each reading to internal memory for backup. This backup data may be retrieved wirelessly at a later time.

Eeasy to use software features user programmable critical control points, called “cooling flags” to assist in compliance with USDA Appendix B. The “cooling flags” are automatically annotated on the graph and tabular data views. The summary tab provides the cool down duration between each critical control point. The data can also be automatically exported to Excel® for further calculations.


The RFOT is available with the following rigid piercing probe types:

  • RFOT-FR: Fast response 1.75 inch (70 mm) probe (for smaller meat products)
  • RFOT-4-TD: 4.0 inch (102 mm) transitional diameter probe (for smaller meat products)
  • RFOT-4: 4.0 inch (102 mm)  probe
  • RFOT-7: 7.0 inch (177 mm)  probe
