DPL Telematics has debuted its new AssetView tracking system. AssetView is a solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of any powered or unpowered asset to improve logistics, manage inventory and curb theft. The GPS unit is completely self-contained and can be hidden on any asset, installing in seconds, according to the company.
The AssetView allows managers to remotely monitor any asset accurately from an Internet-based software package and mobile app. The unit is the first telematics product of its kind to feature: No external wiring or antenna; Internal battery power; Wireless, two-way communication; Little to no sky view required; IP 67 rated and UV stabilized design; Dual GPS and GLONASS positioning; Global coverage; and a month-to-month contract.
The AssetView combines multiple technologies to maximize battery life while operating and remaining active in extremely low power modes. The solution is a tool to reduce theft, prevent loss and manage inventory. The AssetView is powered by 3 x AA 1.5V batteries, rather than requiring constant charging or a proprietary power source. Low power notifications remotely alert customers if the batteries get low so they know when to change them.
The AssetView’s proprietary Adaptive Tracking technology increases its reporting frequency when movement is detected and automatically reduces it when stationary.
“The AssetView is the first tracking solution of its kind to offer such a large combination of technologies in a simple final product, delivering long battery life without sacrificing two-way communications and real time alerts. Its small size and affordable price point allow anybody to easily track nearly anything, regardless of its power source,” said Tony Nicoletti, vice president of sales and business development at DPL Telematics. “Customers control their monthly subscription with the option to deactivate and reactivate as needed without penalty, which is ideal for seasonal or demand-based usage.
“Since the AssetView has minimal install time and uses readily available AA batteries, customers can easily replace them anytime they are alerted that its power is getting low. It is truly both an easy to use and easy to maintain tracking solution for virtually any asset to decrease loss exposure, better manage asset inventories and improve logistics.”
