eliminate the maintenance associated with lithium battery periodic recharging - Increase Productivity and Efficiency While Reducing Maintenance Costs
Whether your assets are left at public construction sites or expensive equipment is leased out, the Solar Powered ATX2S, packaged in a ruggedized waterproof IP67 enclosure, provides security and peace of mind that assets are safe and where they should be. The Solar power GPS device is the ideal solution for: container tracking, trailer tracking and any asset tracking.
The solar panel recharges the internal batteries at a rate equivalent to up to 10 GPS positions/day, depending on sun and geographical area, leading to an extremely long battery life.
Programmed to send GPS location every XX hours (usually once a day) when the asset is stationary
Once movement/vibration is detected, the unit wakes up automatically, sends an alarm and switches to motion mode sending GPS every XX minutes for as long as the asset is in motion mode (usually every 60 minutes).
- When the Piccolo ATX2S is wired to an external power source such as a trailer connected to the cabin, it’s internal battery will be charged and the Piccolo ATX2S will operate in real-time, sending GPS every XX minutes (Usually every 1 minute).
- When the cabin disconnects from the trailer, the external power is disconnected and the Piccolo ATX2S will automatically switch to asset tracking mode powered by the internal battery and operating as described above.

- Operated by Rechargeable battery – the standard is one 4.2 VDC Lithium rechargeable battery pack with a capacity of 7800mA. When fully charged has the capacity of transmitting around 5000 GPS position. Optionally a second battery pack can be added with same capacity for transmitting a total of around 10000 GPS positions. The unit has an internal fast charger. The batteries are charged via an external of the shelf standard 6-24VDC regulated power supply wall powered (110-220 AC) that plugs into the unit via a waterproof connector. Optionally the unit can be charged from a car battery via the cigarette plug. The charge time is around 4-5 for one battery pack.
- Solar Powered – the self charging gps tracking device configuration remains as described above, with a rechargeable battery or two battery packs, the solar panel will charge the lithium batteries at 200Mamp in full sun. In a sunny day the solar panel will charge the batteries with power the equivalent to around 20 GPS transmissions.
