The Solar Advantage

As long as the sun shines, either direct or indirect, the Compact Tracking Unit will be replenished with more power. Unlike battery-operated systems, the Compact Tracking Unit sends out dozens of important messages a day. The unit has a longer life than traditional battery systems with lithium iron phosphate recharagable cells, equating to an average lifespan of over 7 years, and can even work in less than ideal "dark" conditions for up to 5 days. 

Built-in Intelligence

The Compact Tracking Units know if they are stopped or in motion. When moving, the unit sends location reports up to every 10 minutes. Alarms, including impacts, are sent out in real-time and can be sent directly to your cell phone. The Compact Tracking Unit doesn’t have to conserve power like battery systems and can give you better visibility to the how, when and where of your shipment.
