Transflo has introduced Transflo Trailer Tracking, a solar-powered device that integrates into the Transflo Mobile+ platform to give fleet managers near-real-time communications and GPS-based tracking of trailers, containers, and other assets.

The TT600-series telematics device is manufactured by Flex, and has a solar cell and back-up battery that lasts up to four months with no solar charge, the company says. The unit provides transparency into the utilization, dwell time, and movements of critical assets.

The TT600-series device has a 4G Cat-M/NB-IoT LTE chipset with 2G backup for always-on two-way cellular communications. It produces one GPS fix per minute when in motion for a steady stream of location information, and the optional RS232/CAN connector allows advanced data capture from trailer sensors, including vehicle health and status, theft and tampering alerts and remote reefer-unit control and temperature monitoring.

At 10.3 x 3.5 x 1.2 in., the telematics unit uses little space and attaches to the trailer or other asset with just four rivets, screws, or bolts. The solar cell and large backup battery can provide virtually uninterrupted untethered power.
