The Xsense® pre-cooling solution is designed to programmatically monitor treatment operations by monitoring the conditioning environment and the items being treated. It helps determine when a treatment cycle should be paused or halted, and whether the items being treated need to be moved around within the conditioning environment. The goal is typically to adjust the condition of the product for better storage or to inhibit the ripening of fruit and vegetables in order to extend shelf life, or to accelerate ripening in order to prepare the product for market.
Typical applications are managing forced-air cooler or vacuum cooler operations. (The solution is also relevant for hydro-coolers.) These coolers are typically used for the treatment of produce post-harvest after its arrival at a site.
