Spireon Inc., a provider of GPS-based vehicle telematics and business intelligence solutions, has announced a new solar-powered trailer and asset telematics solution.
The self-powered solution is compatible with a range of transportation vehicles and equipment, including dry vans and intermodal applications such as containers. Upon installation, customers tap into a renewable energy source that powers Spireon FleetLocate’s rich data telematics solution, the company explained.
“Spireon FleetLocate is a complete trailer management solution that captures a wealth of rich data at the trailer level, then translates the data into easy-to-understand, actionable Business Intelligence,” explained Steve Blair, senior vice president of sales at Spireon. “From automating yard checks to right-sizing fleets and increasing driver satisfaction, Spireon customers see dramatic improvements across all areas of their operations, ensuring a rapid return on investment. We are excited to add this new solar-powered product to our industry leading portfolio, adding a new option for customers to dramatically improve their trailer management operations.”
From maximizing the operating life of the internal battery with solar recharging, Spireon’s new solar-powered hardware integrates with the Spireon FleetLocate solution, providing businesses with real-time location visibility and rich data for their trailers and assets, the company said.
According to Spireon, the solar-powered telematics unit is designed to ensure maximum durability both on and off the road; trailers and assets can now gather telematics information without drawing power from an external battery, providing a more reliable and continuous power source to the unit’s rechargeable battery.
