A flexible device
At PackStatus we work with a GPS and sensoring device that can be completely configured to your specific wishes.
Of course we will help you to come to the optimal use of the devices in your situation.
What can be measured?
- Get information on the condition of your shipment:
- Open / closed
* GPS - logging
- Create an historic log of GPS positions per time interval which you read out afterwards. You have no data usage with this option
- Send GPS positions periodically, including logged positions, per time interval
- Set the interval for logging according to your wish
* GPS - location
- Get information on the location of your shipments
- Set the frequency to receive GPS locations
- Low energy consumption
The more messages you send per day, the more energy is consumed. In the table below you find an estimate of the influence of the number of messages per day on the battery life of the device.
|Tracking mode||Battery life
(differs per device) *
|1 location per day||25 days|
|6 locations per day||10-15 days|
|1 location every 10 minutes||2-5 days|
|24 hour almost real-time (6 x p/min)||1-3 days|
* The life of a battery heavily depends on the GSM signal strength at the moment of reporting.
E.g. in an isolated trailer or a metal building the battery life will be shorter compared to other environments.
To extend battery life an extra built in battery is an option. Contact us for more information.
All devices are equipped with a motion sensor. By linking the 'motion sensor' with the 'sending frequency' on the device, we ensure that when the device is in motion, GPS positions are regularly sent . If there is no movement, the device goes into sleep mode and will run on a battery-saving program. Both the frequency to move and the sleep mode are settable by the client if wished.
