Trackunit’s new 5G-ready IoT device
By Andy Brown31 August 2022
Trackunit has launched Spot 2, a 5G device to monitor and secure non-powered construction accessories and equipment.
The device, which is said to have a five-year battery life, works independent of machine power and provides customers a 5G-ready solution that connects equipment of all shapes and sizes. This enables equipment and site managers to quickly locate equipment at depots and worksites using the Trackunit platform.
“This is very much in alignment with the Eliminate Downtime movement as it cuts down on inefficiency and contributes to making construction a better, more useful industry,” said Lærke Ullerup, chief marketing officer. “We will continue to look at our products and relentlessly search for better solutions as we pursue the eliminate downtime agenda.”
Among Spot 2’s features, operators can set tracking frequency while the new power efficient design has doubled estimated battery life allowing 4,000 message transmissions.
“We see Spot as a natural complement to Trackunit’s Raw (Cellular) and Kin (Bluetooth) products, providing a capability in between the two,” said Dave Swan, senior vice president products. “With Spot, users don’t have to guess and search for equipment, and will always be the first to know if something moves without permission, helping reduce theft.”
Trackunit will be showcasing Spot 2 at Bauma Munich.
