Piccolo Hybrid IoT
A dual mode GPS Trailer Tracker Device Designed Specifically For Trailer Tracking.
*Available on CATM1/NB1 Networks Worldwide
with fallback to 2g
Packaged in a robust, waterproof IP67 enclosure and supporting a variety of wired sensors and wireless IoT sensors such as temperature and door, the Piccolo Hybrid IoT is the industry’s most innovative trailer tracking solution designed to future proof your trailer tracking needs.
The Piccolo Hybrid Dual Mode will switch automatically from real-time tracking mode to asset tracking mode when external power is disconnected, providing comprehensive visibility for trailers parked at job sites waiting to be unloaded and reloaded.
Comprehensive Trailer Visibility
Know when trailer is disconnected from the cabin and the ability to pair truck to trailer (which trailer is attached to which truck).
Device recharges when the trailer is hooked up to a truck, removing maintenance and battery charging burdens.
For temperature controlled trailers, the Hybrid lets you monitor up to 6 different wired cold zones simultaneously or 50 wireless cold zones for maximum temperature monitoring and control.
How it works
When externally powered (tethered to the power of the trailer), the Piccolo Hybrid IoT operates in real-time vehicle tracking mode sending GPS in high frequency, for example every minute.
Once power is disconnected, the Piccolo Hybrid IoT automatically switches to Asset Tracking (AT) mode, sending an alert on trailer disconnect and providing complete visibility on the whereabouts of your trailer, sending a GPS check in 1/ day when parked (user-definable).
In AT Mode, once movement/vibration is detected, the Piccolo Hybrid IoT will automatically wake up, send an alert and will report more frequently for as long as the vibration continues. For example, every 30 minutes (user configurable).
The Piccolo Hybrid IoT can be supplied with a DC plug in place of the wire harness. With this configuration, the Piccolo Hybrid IoT serves as a standalone, autonomous container or asset tracker with a 5-year battery life or up to 5000 GPS on a single charge when powered by the internal 7800 mAH rechargeable lithium battery.
Upgraded to Lead Telematics into IoT
In addition to it’s trailer tracking functionality , various IoT BLE tags have been integrated with the Piccolo Hybrid IoT, enabling the device to act as an IoT Gateway, which is used to process and forward the IoT data to the server- for an all around connected fleet.
Use the Piccolo Hybrid IoT telematics platform for trailer and asset tracking
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.
2 digital inputs, 1 digital output and 1 analog input allow for various types of sensors such as pressure, temperature, engine on/off, vibration alarm, door open/close and more.
Supports up to 6 wired digital temperature sensors, allowing you to monitor up to 6 different cold zones simultaneously.
Auto alarm with GPS location when the unit moves in and out of a predetermined zone
Various IoT BLE tags have been integrated with the Piccolo Hybrid IoT. This functionality enables device to act as an IoT Gateway which is used to process and forward the IoT data to the server- for an all around connected fleet.
Auto alert when and where the external power is connected / disconnected.
Easily reconfigure the Piccolo Hybrid+ OTA or by sending SMS commands.
When an event is detected, the Piccolo Hybrid is programmable to send an SMS alarm to mobile phones together with the current GPS coordinates.
