The industry's most advanced & most versatile dual mode GPS unit for Trailer Tracking, Boat Tracking, and Machinery Tracking. The Piccolo Hybrid+ automatically switches from regular vehicle tracking mode to asset tracking mode when external power is disconnected, providing comprehensive visibility for trailers left at job sites waiting to be unloaded and reloaded.
Mode of operation:
- Packaged in a robust IP67 waterproof enclosure with a large 7800 mA rechargeable lithium back up battery that enables the unit to send up to 5000 GPS locations on a single charge
- When powered by external power (connected to the truck), the Piccolo Hybrid+ operates in real-time vehicle tracking mode sending GPS in high frequency, for example every 30 seconds.
- Once power is disconnected, the Piccolo Hybrid+ automatically switches to Asset Tracking (AT) mode providing complete visibility onto the whereabouts of your assets sending a GPS check in 1/ day when parked(user-definable )
- Once movement/vibration is detected, the Piccolo Hybrid+ will automatically wake up, send an alert and report in real-time for as long as the vibration continues. Additionally, the device will switch to report data at a more frequent interval (user-definable ) for example, every 30 minutes.
Main Features and Benefits:
- Provides driver behavior and engine diagnostics when connected to truck for added streamlining and control.
- Device recharges when the trailer is hooked up to a truck, removing maintenance and battery charging burdens.
- Provides security and assurance that trailers are safe and where they should be for as long as needed.
- Optional: Connect external sensors such as temperature, weight and pressure sensors for various application needs.
The Piccolo Hybrid+, when powered by the large 7800Mamp battery can report up to 5,000 GPS positions off a single charge.
Once external power is restored, the internal battery will recharge.
Hybrid - Dual Mode operation for Trailer Tracking. When the Piccolo Hybrid+ is wired to an external power source such as trailer connected to the cabin, the internal battery will be charged and the Hybrid+ will operate in real-time sending GPS say every minute. When the cabin disconnects from the trailer the external power is disconnected and the Hybrid+ will automatically switch to be powered by the internal battery and will switch to asset tracking mode
When externally powered, the Piccolo Hybrid+ acts as a real-time tracker reading the temperature at a preconfigured interval and reporting back to the server.
When external power is disconnected the Hybrid+ switches to AT mode and will wake up at a predefined intervals to read the temperature and report it back to the server.
When externally powered, the Piccolo Hybrid+ will read the engine diagnostics.
2 Digital inputs, 1 Digital Output and 1 Analog input
When an event is detected, the Piccolo Hybrid+ is programmable to send an SMS alarm to mobile phones together with the current GPS coordinates.
the Hybrid+ can change the frequency of transmitting GPS when entering a pre-configured geo-fence.
