Appareo’s considerable experience in GPS positioning and inertial sensing was leveraged to create a product with effective power management, but still high-performance positioning and motion-sensing capabilities. These confluence of capabilities, and focus on creating a truly long lasting and rugged asset tracking product, make Appareo’s cellular asset trackers a spectacular offering for the harsh demands of off-highway equipment.
The Appareo Asset Tracker, model AT-130 is a low-cost, cellular, IP69K-rated asset tracking device with ultra-long battery life and industrial operating temperature range (-40 ℃ to +85 ℃). Battery life is impacted significantly by the frequency with which the device is required to report its position, but assuming that the AT-130 tracker reports its position once per day and occasionally also reports its position on demand (e.g. because of a message from a user’s web or mobile application demanding a position update) then a customer could expect the battery to last more than five years. With lower frequency reporting the tag could last even longer.
