DPL Telematics has released its AssetView Max Tracking System, which the company says is a solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking to improve logistics, manage inventory and curb theft. The portable GPS unit is completely self-contained and may be hidden on any asset, installing in seconds, the company adds.
The AssetView Max allows owners to remotely monitor any asset from an internet-based software package and mobile app.
The company says the unit features:
- No external wiring or antenna;
- Tamper detection – Immediate text and email alerts if the unit is removed;
- Internal battery power – Powered by 2 x D 3.6 V batteries, customer replaceable;
- Long battery life – Self-powered for up to 10 years on daily updates, up to two years on more detailed tracking;
- IP 67 rated and UV stabilized design – Waterproof;
- Compact size – Measuring 8.8x 3.6x 1.6-in.;
- Wireless, two-way communication – Activate recovery mode or set movement alerts over the air from the software or mobile app;
- Month to month agreement – No long-term contract, deactivate and reactivate anytime without penalty;
- Little to no sky view required;
- Dual GPS and GLONASS positioning; and
- Global cellular coverage.
The company says the AssetView Max is powered by 2 x D LTC “off the shelf” batteries. Low power notifications remotely alert customers if the batteries get low. To prevent tampering, the unit notifies via text and email if the unit is removed from the host asset and delivers a mapped location of the event.
The AssetView Max’s proprietary TruTrace Adaptive Tracking technology increases its reporting frequency when movement is detected and automatically reduces it when stationary, the company say, adding this delivers long battery life while actively alerting on curfew violation, movement or geofence breach as well as allowing the user to switch to “Recovery Mode” over the air.
