An advanced telematics GPS unit with functionalities such as: GPS, IO’s, driver behavior and engine diagnostics that supports up to six digital temperature sensors with an accuracy of 0.9F (0.5C) to be installed in six separate zones within a refrigerated truck or trailer. The STX can be set to report the temperature in the various zones periodically and/or automatically when the temperature is changing a certain preset percentage from previous reading or when reaching a preset high/low temperature. The Piccolo can also be set to automatically turn ON/OFF the refrigeration unit.
A Piccolo Plus with an integrated RFLink reader is installed in the cabin and RFTags with integrated internal or external temperature sensors are installed in each zone of the trailer. The RFTag will send temperature data wirelessly every 30 seconds to the Piccolo Plus that will analyze the data same as described above for the Piccolo STX and will route it to the server.
A portable temperature monitoring telematics device integrated with GPS mounted in an IP67 waterproof enclosure powered by a large 7800 Mamp rechargeable lithium battery. Designed to be placed inside refrigerated cargo such as food and drug shipments sending up to 5000 temperature and GPS location data on a single charge. The Piccolo TMX is reading the temperature at preset intervals, can send the reading to the server as read or can send accumulated readings with or without the GPS location data.
