In addition, the sensor suite detects door intrusion, motion and temperature.
The RT 6000+ is tailored for the refrigerated transport market. This fourth generation device has been field tested and proven with over 75,000 units fielded. The solution is a dual-mode, two-way reefer monitoring and control device that provides visibility, control and decision rules to transportation companies worldwide. This solution provides comprehensive temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical applications services to revolutionize refrigerated transportation operations.
The GT 1000 is a low-cost, cellular-enabled electronic bolt seal with GPS capability, co-developed with Tyden Brooks, the world’s largest seal company. The self-powered GT 1000 installs in minutes and is designed for theft prevention and recovery as well as virtual warehouse and in-transit visibility applications. The bolt and locking cap provide a secure truck or container lock and reliably detect cut or removal in real-time.
A self-powered device with cellular communications and GPS capability, the GT 1200 is a sophisticated tracking and monitoring solution that provides valuable insight into the status, movement, loading, and unloading of dry intermodal containers. By leveraging dynamic telematics capabilities integrated with intermodal order and event information systems, domestic container operators can utilize the GT 1200 to vastly improve the performance of their operations.
These OrbComm devices can be paired with web analytics platforms, which provide near-real-time knowledge and notifications of the assets’ status and location, empowering fleet owners and leasors with complete command and control of their global assets.
