Keeping you in control
Offering best of breed hardware to suit all applications which means we can go without power for months and months!
Our units can be fitted in hostile environments such as barges, containers, plant vehicles and machinery. IP-Rated waterproof and robust units which in means whatever your assets we can track it reliably to meet your business needs.
Security is an important consideration for plant machinery, agricultural equipment, and other high value assets. Theft is becoming an increasing problem for businesses, not only because of higher insurance premiums, but also the disruption caused waiting for the equipment to be replaced.
Identify Unauthorised Use
Our alerting module notifies you immediately when assets are in use. You won’t be inundated with e-mails and SMS messages as our time schedules can make sure you’re only alerted when their operation is unexpected, such as in the evenings or at weekends.
For an extra level of security you can remotely immobilise equipment to prevent it from being started. You can even set up scheduled actions to automatically immobilise and re-immobilise equipment at set times of the day and week. We detect if assets are moved without their ignition being started and can send you a tow away alert.
Improve maintenance and servicing
Monitoring the running hours of your assets is important for scheduling servicing and maintenance to reduce unnecessary costs and ensure reliable operation. This can be difficult if assets are away from the yard for extended periods of time, or out on hire to third parties. We can help you monitor running hours so you can ensure servicing takes place when it needs to, maximising the utilisation of your assets.
You can also monitor other data such as battery voltage or other sensors and get alerted if there’s a problem.
Tracking trailers can present some difficult technical challenges. Power is normally provided by the cab or tractor unit, so when trailers are disconnected and standing idle – the time when you need to know where they are most – no power is available for the tracking devices to use.
We have a number of different ways of addressing the power issue. Our devices have high capacity batteries and smart power management so they can operate autonomously for up to 6 months, recharging automatically when the trailer is hooked up to a cab or tractor unit.
Our solar powered units also have rechargeable batteries and use the sun to keep them topped up so they continue working indefinitely.
Robust and waterproof
Tracking devices also need to be robust and waterproof, as they’re typically installed externally. Our devices are small and IP-rated, so they can endure all conditions.
Our solar powered units are even designed to fit within the corrugations of standard shipping containers.
Gain a deeper insight
Our analytics functionality can help you understand your utilisation, identifying trailers that are surplus to requirements or those that might be better deployed at a different depot.
Knowing where your trailers are helps with planning maintenance and inspections.
See when doors are opened and closed, and potentially identify criminal activity.
