Aptinov began the production of wireless temperature sensors in 2011, culminating about three years of product development improving both the hardware and the software. Roughly two quarters later, the thermo-hygrometer WLS-05 was launched to answer the growing need for temperature and humidity recording in the pharmaceutical industry and retail, using mostly the same technology.
This company was established by people with skills in telemetry, wireless networks, metrology, and quality systems in industry. Those skills lead to design innovative solutions that do add true value to our costumers.
The main goal is to help our customers simplify temperature and relative humidity monitoring, with systems that automate all required tasks, being easy to install and use.
Aptinov understands the value of client support. Specialization is a key factor to effectiveness, and in most cases the area of expertise of our customers doesn’t need to include recording of environmental parameters. Therefore, our skills and support are always available to overcome difficulties of our costumers.
