Axiom Navigation, Inc., a GPS and wireless communication systems provider introduced June 25 its new Accu-Tracker FMS-3000, 3100, 8000 and 8100 devices for fleet management and asset tracking. By combining GPS satellite technology with Cellemetry or Aeris.Net Microburst wireless data delivery, these devices can automatically report the exact location of mobile assets virtually anywhere in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and some areas of Central and South America, according to the companies.
"Knowing the whereabouts of high value vehicles or potentially hazardous cargo has taken on new meaning since the tragic events of last September, and these new products make continuous, low cost, 24 hour location monitoring possible," said Rick Sill, vice president of Marketing and Sales for Axiom. "Cellemetry and Aeris both offer very affordable services that have wide coverage areas. When compared with the cost of replacing lost or stolen assets, use of the Cellemetry or Aeris.Net Microburst system offers a much higher value proposition."
According to the company, the FMS-3000, 3100, 8000 and 8100 can all be used to track high value/high risk cargo, vehicle/truck rentals, utility vehicles, service and delivery vehicles, and heavy-duty construction equipment. By implementing these products, they say users benefit from increased fleet efficiency, prevention of unauthorized activities, and tracking of lost or stolen vehicles.
The FMS-3000 and 8000 have three discrete inputs/two discrete outputs, while the FMS-3100 and 8100 have six discrete inputs/two discrete outputs. Additional features include: a Forward Control Channel (FOCC) that allows commands (pages) to be sent to the mobile unit from the client control center; power saving modes/power cutoff to help save the vehicle battery; and automatic vehicle location reporting based on pre-determined time intervals. Additionally, the FMS-3100 and 8100 offer a motion sensing capability for power management and unauthorized movement detection, and a backup battery for mobile unit with charging/management circuitry.
All of these FMS devices also feature a Geofencing parameter capability that can be turned on or off at the user's discretion. The default radius for the Geofence is 200 meters, but can be programmed for other limits. Once the mobile asset has exceeded the radius of the Geofence, the Accu-Tracker will send a position report to the monitoring center. Using this information, the company claims the fleet manager can then determine if the mobile asset is being stolen or just diverted off route.
