The FALCOM ROCK - Concept

(delivered on project basis, MOQ required)

is a stand-alone tracking device that can be used for both mobile and fixed asset management. The device concept combines the latest quad-band GSM/GPRS technology for communication, a high-sensitive GPS receiver for positioning, a waterproof compact case, and a durable internal battery pack for long-life operation eleminating the need for an external power source. The internal long-life 13.000 mAh battery pack providing over five years of autonomous operation  (depending on acquistion and reporting   interval). This is an ideal solution for managing and tracking containers, trailers, trains, and high-value assets where no power source is present.

This unit is shipped preconfigured from the factory. This data can be polled periodically or remotely on demand. Detailed reports can be generated, which can show position data in several formats like Latitude, Longitude, Altitude as well as GSM net code, base station code which will help to locate the position of container or asset when a GPS signal is not available.

After a predifined time out or no movement, device can report current position and automatically shuts down, saving all battery power until next time out, incoming call, SMS or motion. When next motion is detected or timer runs out, or call or SMS is received the unit wakes up and reports new GPS position within 2 minutes.
