New tracking technology, designed for trailers and other assets, will be showcased for the first time by RF Tracking at the CV Show 2016. The culmination of four years of research and development, the innovation sees the combination of long range RF and GPS that utilises new ultra-low power consumption technology with an extended five-year battery life.
For ease of use, RF Tracking has designed the tags for self-installation, making the solution inexpensive to implement and simple to expand. Suitable for anything from trailers to swap bodies, skeletons and shunters to forklift trucks and even workers, RF Tracking claims that there is no other RFID solution that offers such flexibility and ease of use, coupled with such exceptional battery life.
The RF Tracking solutions allow moveable assets to be easily tracked through any web-connected computer or mobile. A simple plug-in reader at a gatehouse can record all movements in and out of the site, together with a historic log of the asset movement.
The long-range tracker provides a relatively inexpensive solution for managing trailer fleets, and costs are further reduced as the tags have no SIM charges. The tags can also be used for improving yard management, giving real time asset location accuracy down to loading bay level.
“Advances in low power technology led by consumer demand have accelerated the development of satellite receivers, sensors and batteries that are set to revolutionise industrial applications, such as tracking and tagging,” says Steve Cowper, Managing Director of RF Tracking. “By taking advantage of the latest innovations, RF Tracking has designed a single GPS and RF tag to provide a new level of asset location tracking and utilisation recording, but at a considerably lower cost than alternative solutions.”
As part of a range of tracking solutions, RF Tracking is also offering Tough Tracker – the world’s first virtually indestructible satellite tracking device for the protection of assets. This device and the full range on RF Tracking’s tags will be on display at the 2016 CV Show, Stand 3F119, 26 – 28 April, NEC Birmingham.
