PharmaGuard (50€ once + 19€/month)

PharmaGuard™ is developed for the medical industry and approved by the FDA, among others. PharmaGuard™ monitors and documents the temperature level in high-precision freezers and chests and has a precession range down to -100°C (Optional -200 °C).


The system also warns you if one of your freezers shows an irregular pattern or is about to malfunction. This allows you to contact your service technician in good time, for example, to replace coolant or change the condenser. You can even enter the e-mail and mobile phone number of the refrigeration technician in the system so that he or she is automatically notified immediately. 

Predictive Maintenance

We can predict the following possible errors in the cooling system with our predictive and preventive maintenance algorithm:


  • Dusty or clogged condenser

  • Compressor failure

  • Pressure drops from the refrigerant

  • Refrigerant contamination

  • Leakage in the system

  • loss of function

  • Failures of mechanical temperature controllers

  • Cooling container not closed properly


In the setup phase, we support you in setting the relevant parameters. Our SynCore ™ platform, through machine learning and artificial intelligence, gets to know your cooling unit better and better, so that irregularities can be detected earlier and earlier so that a service technician can address the problem to prevent your cooling unit from being damaged or even failing.

PharmaGuard (50€ once + 19€/month)

  • 50€ setup fee per unit once + 19€ per month

    Please Note that you do not purchase the unit. You only lease it. You buy the one-time SynCore setup of the unit for 50€ (net) and hereafter you have access to the SynCore infrastructure. We offer this mighty tool as a software as a service for 19€ per month. 

  • Patented predictive maintenance algorithm

    With our technology we can predict when a cooler or freezer is about to malfunction. The cooler or freezer automatically sends a service request to your service provider 2-4 weeks in advance. 

  • Compliance, logging & reports

    We automate the temprerature logging, create the reports for the authorities and make them available to you every day. Historical reports are stored in the blockchain and available online. So, for your next audit visit, all your compliance documentation is available and compliant.

  • No wifi needed - setup in less than 7 minutes

    Synap is connecting directly to the Internet using a cutting edge narrow band IoT Wireless transmission technology‎. Our sensors connect to the Internet without being connect to our customers network. This makes our solution the most simple and safest on the market. Our sensors can also connect to the Internet while it is moving.

  • Secure data storage with blockchain technology

    All data are saved in a secured and tamperproof blockchain in a Microsoft datacentre near you. Every generated report is signed with a stamp that at all times can be verified.

  • Access to Service Desk

    SynapIOT Service Desk - our Hotline is there for help if you need advice on the use of SynCore or any questions around the devices or reports.

  • Retrofit

    Retrofit on almost any cooling, refrigeration-, freezing-, AC-, and transport units device with the products of Synap - if it does not work - just send it back - you will recieve a full refund. 

  • Cancel subscription

    Cancel subscription

    It is at any time possible to cancel subscription with a notice period of 3 months. Read all about subscription cancellation in the FAQ.

  • IoT-Equipment-as-a-Service

    IoT-Equipment-as-a-Service (IoT-EaaS) is in our opinion the next step towards a simpler and more advanced usage model. You "rent" our products and services, thus protecting your balance sheet and only debiting your P&L in the correct period. Your accountant will undoubtedly be happy not to capitalize and not to create a depreciation plan, but only to book an expense.

    This also means a much more effective way of working, because when you no longer need the sensor, you simply return it to us, and others can benefit from it. This is in line with the modern and sustainable thinking of our customers and is in line with our innovative products.

    ​What does this mean for you?

    It means that you have to rent the hardware and not buy it - you only pay for the service and a set-up fee.

  • Intuitive IoT-Dashboard

    In the SynCore™ dashboard you can set different static tolerance limits for the sensors of each cooling unit - easily and intuitively - you can and also define the tolerance level of the dynamic thresholds. 

    When a predictive maintenance, dynamic alarm is triggered, you will receive an immediate notification in the form of an e-mail and a text message.  You can select any number of recipients as recipients.  We are currently working on offering you an automated call that reads the error message to you - this will follow in an automatic update soon. 

    Predictive maintenance, dynamic and static temperature alerts are standard in our products and are part of the SynCore™ Plus subscription. This mighty tool follows as standard in all our sensor subscriptions. 

  • Narrowband IoT-connection

    Narrowband IoT-connection


    The application areas of IoT (Internet of Things) are almost unlimited. The requirements pose great challenges for the underlying mobile communication technology. The new transmission technology NarrowBand-IoT (NB-IoT) is ideal for IoT applications that exchange only small amounts of data. We have decided to deploy and use this technology for the following reasons.


    • No maintenance and installation necessary (Plug & Play)

    • Internationally standardised and reliable technology

    • Data transmission also possible with very strong obstacles

    • Good reception even in deep cellars.

    • Network coverage over a very long distance possible

    • Designed for optimised energy consumption
