Rand McNally recently released a solar-powered asset tracker for use on trailers and other high-value equipment.
The TrueTrack S110 tracker and the accompanying web port offer the ability to set up custom geofences in order to receive an email alert when an asset moves, enters, or exits a designated boundary.
The asset tracker also offers precise location transmission using a built-in cellular modem running on a 4G LTE network, and on-screen mapping and location information. The tracker comes with up to six months of tracking data and reporting.
The TrueTrack S110 features a rechargeable solar battery with a conventional battery backup that lasts up to 90 days between charges. Rand McNally said it only takes 10 minutes to install, and it comes pre-configured and ready to go.
The asset tracker has an Ingress Protection rating of IP69K, the highest standard for protection against dust, close-range, high-pressure water, and high-temperature liquids making their way inside the device, Rand McNally officials said in a press release.
“As you can imagine, placing a tracker on the exterior of a trailer or outdoor equipment comes with hazards related to wind, sleet, rain, hail, harsh chemicals, and more,” said Maged Riad, senior director of engineering. “The TrueTrack S110 tracker has been through thorough third-party testing and certification to ensure that even the strongest pressure washers won’t affect the functionality of the device.”
The TrueTrack S110 is part of Rand McNally’s connected fleet platform and can be used as a stand-alone product or added to a company’s monthly subscription. As a result, with a single login to Rand McNally’s web portal, on a single map, customers can view the location of all their fleet vehicles and assets.
