Transflo Trailer Tracking is 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-sereis telematics device is manufactured by Flex and is designed to be compact, rugged and simple to install. The device has a solar cell and a back-up battery that lasts up to four months with no solar charge.
The trailer tracking solution can help fleets track metrics such as utilization, dwell time and movements of critical assets. The telematics unit uses little space and attaches to the trailer or other asset with just four rivets, screws or bolts. The solar cell and large backup battery can provide virtually uninterrupted untethered power.
“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, vice president of product and innovation. “Simply install it, turn it on, and the device begins working automatically.”
The TT600-series device has a 4G LTE chipset with 2G backup for always-on two-way cellular communications. It produces one GPS fix per minute when in motion and the optional RS232/CAN connector allows advanced data capture from trailer sensors, including vehicle health and status, theft and tampering alerts and remote reefer-unit control and temperature monitoring.
