Three tracking options in Mtrack3

November 2013 Asset Management, EAS, RFID, Transport (Industry)

SA Electronic Tracking Systems (SAETS) has announced the global launch of the new Mtrack3 wireless asset tracking and recovery unit. Mtrack is the company’s asset tracking and recovery hardware core, which boasts a recovery rate of 98,4% over the last six years.

The company has now launched the latest hardware platform, the Mtrack3. The Mtrack3 makes use of the existing GPS, GSM network (LBS) and RF radio beacon for positioning and communication. The service provider can monitor and track any asset on digital maps. GPS also reports time/date, position, speed and course.

Mtrack has integrated a sophisticated power management system with a battery lifetime of 1 to 3 years depending on configuration. It is possible to connect the Mtrack to an external power source ranging between 5-32 V.

How Mtrack3 works

The use of GSM enables stolen goods to be found anywhere – ie, in a building, in a container, underground etc. It is also possible to secure an object within a limited area with the use of the built-in Geofencing mode. The unit is very small, thus enabling easy concealment whilst not compromising on its ability to secure or track the items the customer wants to safeguard.

The Mtrack can detect movement and also contains an anti-tamper alarm. These features enable the unit to fulfil most positioning and tracking needs. The Mtrack is ideal to combat theft and can also be used by logistics companies to track goods. The RF (Radio Frequency) beacon enables the unit to be traced in all environments.

The unique SMS protocol makes it possible to remotely program and control the Mtrack, putting the customer in control of the unit’s power management, positioning frequency or other programmable parameters.

The motion sensor on the Mtrack can be programmed for detection of stationary goods or goods going into motion. When a programmed alarm event occurs on the Mtrack, the unit sends messages to the ARC/control centre about the unit’s status, GPS position (or its macro location). This information serves as a starting point for the recovery teams to begin their search.

Mtrack3 has been integrated into the Web-based Track2find platform. Clients can easily monitor and track any asset from any location in the world. The built-in radio transmitter, which is activated in an alarm situation, combined with a directional antenna provides very precise positioning; allowing reaction teams to recover any asset the unit is attached to or placed in.

Mtrack3 is built for extreme conditions. The product is rugged, watertight (IP67) and operates without restrictions in temperatures from -30 to +75°C.
