BOSTON, Mass. – TransCore has introduced a new modem that extends the battery life of its trailer tracking products up to seven years.
Previously, batteries required replacement after three years, preventing many customers from adopting un-tethered tracking applications.
“In an industry burdened by market volatility and increased security demands, manufacturers must make satellite tracking technology more accessible,” said John Worthington, president of TransCore.
“As we see with consumer electronics, the evolution of technology delivers greater functionality and streamlined design, all with a more desirable value proposition.”
Two new GlobalWave satellite data communications terminals have been introduced by the company, thanks to its new developments.
One can be used for basic tracking applications while the other enables tracking as well as monitoring with a full suite of sensors, the company says.
Both new terminals allow two-way communication between fleet operators and assets.
