Transflo has announced Trailer Tracking with solar powered devices that integrate into the Transflo Mobile+ platform and give fleet managers near real-time communications and GPS-based tracking of trailers, containers, and other assets.
According to Transflo, TT600-series telematics device is manufactured by Flex and it is a compact, rugged device that’s simple to install. The device has a solar cell and back-up battery that lasts up to four months with no solar charge. The unit also claims to provide complete 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.
The telematics unit also uses little space and attaches to the trailer or other asset with just four rivets, screws, or bolts. And its solar cell and large backup battery can provide virtually uninterrupted untethered power.It leverages the benefits of Transflo Mobile+, an enterprise mobility and workday management platform for truck fleets and their drivers.
