Ctrack launches tracker for unpowered plant

Published:  24 October, 2018

Ctrack has launched a battery-powered tracking device for unpowered plant that uses long-life power management technology to operate for up to seven years.

The telematics unit provides a simple asset management solution for a wide range of unpowered plant that will enable hire companies to improve the security of their equipment as well as helping with stock control and reducing the time needed to collect equipment bymaking it easier to locate.

Designed for reliable, multi-year deployments, the long-life battery unit sends a single location each day, so hire companies managing high volumes of construction equipment can have peace of mind that everything is where it should be.

The unit can be used as a standalone solution or integrated with real-time vehicle tracking, so allpowered and unpowered assets can be monitored through the same telematicssystem.

The rugged enclosure has an IP67 rating, making it both dust-proof and water-proof. Internal antennas combined with the compact nature of the casing makes it easy to conceal. It is mountable virtually anywhere with a choice of either screw or magnet fittings providing straightforward self-installation.

‘We have launched the battery-powered telematics unit following strong demand from our customers for a simple tracking solution that would give them added visibility and control over a wide range of unpowered plant and construction equipment,’ explained Steve Thomas, managing director of Ctrack.

‘They needed something that could be integrated with their existing real-time telematics system for their vehicles, so they could have complete transparency of all assets through a single user interface.’
