Transflo recently 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. It’s compact, rugged, simple to install, and has a solar cell and back-up battery that lasts up to four months with no solar charge. The unit provides complete transparency into the utilization, dwell time and movements of critical assets.
“Adding asset tracking to the industry’s most powerful cloud-based business management and telematics platform lets Transflo Mobile users know precisely when and how their equipment is performing at any time, even when it’s not connected to a tractor or power source,” said Doug Schrier, VP of Product and Innovation. “Simply install it, turn it on, and the device begins working automatically.”
The device has an efficient 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, remote reefer-unit control and temperature monitoring.
