ATrack Launches 4G Telematics Devices and Asset Trackers
ATrack Technology a well-known global telematics brand, has launched two new products, their AK300 LTE vehicle tracker and AS500 long standby asset tracker. The AK300 vehicle tracker, with numerous interfaces, can support multiple vehicle applications suitable for various commercial vehicles assisting logistics operators to improve fleet management efficiency. The AS500 long standby asset tracker meets the IP69K standard for waterproof and dustproof housing design, and combined with high-efficiency power-saving technology, can operate for up to ten years under continuous daily use. It enables the industry to effectively manage high-value assets without requiring a power supply 24/7 using cloud-based management.
According to a report by the market research agency Statista, the scale of Australian e-commerce market will reach 39.57 billion USD in 2022, and is expected to reach 76.5 billion USD by 2027, with an annual growth rate of 14.09%. Lawrence Chao, deputy GM of ATrack Technology, says that in recent years, e-commerce shopping in Australia has boomed, and the demand for transportation has soared. Coupled with Australia’s extensive territory and sparse population, the logistics industry is facing great challenges. The real-time positioning and dispatch of vehicles is closely related to overall operating efficiency and fleet operation costs. Noting this, coupled with the surge in freight commodities that needs to be managed, ATrack has launched the AK300 vehicle tracker and AS500 long standby asset tracker to enable the industry to improve fleet and asset management efficiency and reduce overall operating costs.
AK300 detects driving behavior and enables cloud-based fleet management
The AK300 vehicle tracker can monitor real-time vehicle positioning and detect important data, including mileage, speed, fuel consumption, engine status. It can detect abnormal vehicle status and negative driving behavior such as idling and speeding. This allows for early detection to perform preventive maintenance and to improve driver behavior, all of which can improve fleet management efficiency. In addition, the AK300 can be equipped with various sensors for driver identification (RFID), SOS emergency assistance or temperature sensor, etc., and also supports wireless Bluetooth communication. The tracker can even be equipped with tire pressure sensors to monitor tire pressure and temperature or detect abnormal conditions such as deflation, to avert accident risks.
AS500 incorporates innovative technologies, perfect for asset management
The AS500 long standby asset tracker incorporates a variety of innovative technologies. With an internal battery power supply and ultra power-saving design, it can operate for up to ten years. In addition, it meets the waterproof and dustproof specifications of the international IP69K and IP67 standards for housing design. With a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 80°C, the AS500 can operate stably in extreme conditions. It is suitable for the management of high-value unpowered assets, including containers, heavy machinery and other assets.
The AS500 has 4G LTE Cat. M1 and NB-IoT communication, as well as built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Beacon technology, which can support both outdoor and indoor positioning. In addition, it can be used in a variety of applications in conjunction with software capabilities and accessories. These include motion detection, which can determine whether the monitored object is moving or calculate the work hours of machinery via the built-in acceleration sensor, and establishing a geofence to ensure that the monitored assets are located or operated within an expected area. In addition, there is an abnormality alarm to detect either assets going out of a defined work area or asset theft. In addition, the AS500 can be equipped with a door opening detection magnet to monitor whether a container door is opened at an inappropriate time or place. The AS500 can also be equipped with a tamper detection magnet, which will automatically send a notification when the device is improperly removed, to prevent the theft of important assets.
ATrack Technology notes that in recent years, the transportation industry has actively sought innovation and digitalization, hoping to accelerate the improvement of overall operational efficiency. ATrack accurately determines customer needs, and adheres to rigorous product testing and quality control as it continues to actively develop new products. In addition, the Australian telecommunications companies Vodefone and Telstra have announced that they will successively shut down 3G network services before the end of June 2024. The launch of the AK300 vehicle tracker and AS500 long standby asset tracker satisfy customer’s transitional 3G to 4G product needs, and assist improving fleet and asset management efficiency.
