SC1302 Smart Tracking Sensor

May 14, 2021
The SC1302 single-use smart tracking device provides granular visibility for the safe and efficient transport of pharmaceuticals and perishables.

Monitoring temperatures as low as -20°C, the SC1302 single-use smart tracking device provides granular visibility for the safe and efficient transport of COVID-19 vaccines and other pharmaceuticals and perishables, as well as various electronics and other high-value shipments.


The sensor integrates with CalAmp's SC iOn Supply Chain Visibility software solution to empower real-time, end-to-end monitoring of shipments through a web interface. Using the solution, third-party logistics providers (3PLs) and private fleet operators can monitor environmental conditions of perishable and environmentally-sensitive vital shipments from the minute they leave the manufacturer through multi-modal touchpoints via land, sea, and air until they arrive safely at their final destinations. Technical users can directly integrate the sensor data into their own software solution via industry-standard APIs and manage the device, all through the CalAmp Telematic Cloud platform.


CalAmp's SC iOn Supply Chain Visibility solution includes a portfolio of wireless sensors and other reusable and single-use devices that can be affixed to assets to track and collect critical data, such as temperature, light, shock, vibration, and location throughout the shipment journey. If a shipment is in flight or out of cellular coverage, the sensors will continue to log the environmental data and automatically synchronize with CalAmp's fixed and mobile hubs once back in range to support chain of custody documentation and environmental reporting. The end-to-end supply chain solution facilitates compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and Good Distribution Practice (GDP) requirements and provides enhanced control over shipment quality and integrity.


The CalAmp end-to-end cold chain solution provides:

  • Reporting and data analytics: Complete logging of data to help document chain of custody in compliance with FSMA and GDP requirements, in addition to auto-synchronization of temperature logs with the hub to prove if shipment parameters were violated or remained within approved ranges
  • Critical alerts and notifications: Immediate web-based and mobile alerts when a shipment exceeds a predetermined temperature range or goes out of the authorized shipping zone, enabling supply chain operators to take corrective action to minimize spoilage and loss
  • Near real-time location tracking: CalAmp's smart sensors and disposable devices utilize GPS tracking to provide near real-time delivery estimates, current location and progress reports even when cargo is in the hands of a third-party provider
  • Geofencing and route fencing: Alerts notify users if the cargo deviates from the planned route or strays from authorized waypoints
  • Stationary and movement detection: Detection of when a shipment is moving or stalled, which is especially important when navigating high risk areas in route between waypoints
  • Tracking all modes of global transportation: Including by land, sea and air
  • Application Programming Interface (API) integration: CalAmp integrates with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to facilitate information sharing, collaboration and transparency along the entire cold chain and with key stakeholders
  • External sharing of critical sensor readings and history: A device's sensory reading, location and historical data can be shared with other parties. For example, a warehouse worker in a third-party distribution center can quickly access the device's information without needing a login to CalAmp's application to determine if it is safe to open the cargo.

The environmental sensor is commercially available, and first shipments are anticipated in the first half of 2021.
