Euroscan Asia Pacific will spearhead the release of ground-breaking asset management technology called machine-to-machine (M2M) throughout the region. The new GT 1100 solar powered tracking system was revealed at a top level meeting at Euroscan's Australian headquarters attended by Euroscan Group Director Ron Quaedvlieg (right) and Euroscan Asia Pacific Managing Director Mark Mitchell.
The product will be the first from the ORBCOMM telematics team in the US to be taken on board alongside the leading temperature monitoring solutions in Euroscan Asia Pacific's future thrust into the Asia Pacific region, considered by ORBCOMM to be the most promising market for future Euroscan and ORBCOMM products.
The GT 1100 solution is designed to make asset tracking hassle-free. Its easy to install on trailers and other cargo assets as well as in the groove of intermodal containers. GT 1100 is self-powered with solar recharging technology for low power consumption, efficient messaging and long service life in the field.
The GT 1100 package involves no wiring, no software, no complex logon requirements. The video below shows a slightly tongue in cheek tutorial on installation, which is incredibly simple – peel off the backing paper, stick it on the container wall, trailer or anything that moves, a simple activation which requires no computer work, and the container or machinery can be traced instantly from a tracking website. The video takes 41 seconds, but in reality, installation and activation took around five seconds. Within minutes the container status, including location, history arrival and departure, was on the computer screen. This is the ultimate complete visibility for fleet and operations managers.
