Product category: Software solutions for the manufacturing and packaging process


Filled with customer-driven user-friendly enhancements, collected over years of input from SV7 Users, SCORPION® Software Version 8 (SV8) takes data analysis to a whole new level, making it easier than ever to understand the data collected from your process. Developed specifically to support the new SCORPION® 2 hardware, SV8 also maintains compatibility and can be used with the older SCORPION®data loggers dating back to 1990. While significantly enhanced, it retains traditional on screen displays so that existing SV7 Users can easily transition to SV8 without having to relearn the data analysis/interpretation process.

SCORPION® Software (SV8) Food Safety Module

The SCORPION® Software (SV8) Food Safety Module is the newest addition to the SCORPION® 2 line of oven data logging equipment.  This module enables SCORPION® users / bakers to easily comply with new Kill Step Validation required by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).  After gathering the data, the SCORPION® 2 Software (SV8) food safety module makes it easy to calculate lethality and then generates a comprehensive report displaying cumulative log reduction.  By combining this ease of measurement with robust data capture, the SCORPION® 2 System makes it simple to optimize your process while meeting food safety standards.

Data Download – choose one or several profiles to be Downloaded from the data logger. Edit profile “Start” and “Finish” times, enter File Names, add Notes and assign Process Information.

Each profile appears in its own SV8 window for analysis. Temperature Sensor Array data (containing upper and lower measurements) is automatically separated and displayed in upper and lower graphs.

Data Analysis – the click of a button transforms 2D Line Graphs into 2D Contour or 3D Mesh Graphs for enhanced data analysis.

The Heat Flux Sensor measures the Total Heat experienced by the product and is conveniently displayed in the Total Heat Graph. The convective and radiant percentages are automatically calculated and displayed on the graph.

SV8 Toolbar – provides easy access to the major features of the software.

About us

Company details

Reading Thermal, a Reading Bakery Systems brand, was founded in 1999 with the philosophy that innovation should be simple, reliable, and accessible. A team of experts in heat transfer developed the SCORPION® Data Logging Measurement System with these directives in mind.

The SCORPION® idea was first conceived by Fylde Thermal Engineering of Macclesfield, England, back in 1988.  At that time a 16 channel data logger and a temperature array was the complete system, with data analysis performed by an early version of MS Excel.  Today the SCORPION® 2 is a complete hardware/software measurement system, with a 32 input channel data logger and a group of compatible sensors helping process engineers, quality control engineers, and oven manufactures understand the four key parameters in any thermal process: 1) Temperature [Air, Band, & Product Core], 2) Air Velocity, 3) Energy Transfer, and 4) Humidity.

With an eye on customer needs, Reading Thermal developed the SCORPION® Profiling Service to help customers solve baking, drying, and cooling problems.  And to help bring customers in compliance with OSHA regulations the Oven Safety Inspection Program was developed.
