Super long battery life is possible with LTC (Lithium Thionyl Chloride) batteries or connected to a power source for a permanent solution. Multiple input interfaces and digital output allow for monitoring and control for many years. Uses a combination of GPS and Wi-Fi to track assets both outdoors and inside buildings, warehouses etc.
By default, the Falcon is configured for standard GPS tracking while being powered solely by batteries. This means that it is set to report once daily whether it moves or not, report on trip start, take a GPS fix every two minutes while in the trip, upload/report its trip data every 30 minutes while in the trip, and at the trip end (5 minutes after it stops moving). This allows for the Falcon to be used with lower cost Asset Location, Standard Tracking Plan.
The Falcon can be adjusted to utilize Wi-Fi tracking by detecting nearby Wi-Fi networks. This is very effective in urban centres where numerous Wi-Fi networks exist and for indoors tracking, where it can be challenging to obtain a GPS fix. If you require Wi-Fi tracking combined with GPS tracking, please get in touch with us to discuss plan pricing.
The Falcon can also be configured at our end to do turn by turn tracking like our other powered devices. This is particularly handy when connected to external power. If you wish to use the Falcon as a turn by turn GPS tracker, please purchase the Business Tracking Plan and contact us to ensure we make the necessary parameter changes at our end. If you wish to add Wi-Fi tracking, please get in touch with us to discuss pricing.
The Falcon GPS Tracker with Temperature Sensoris our most versatile for logistics & refrigerated transport. It has a super long battery life and can be connected to external power sources and fall back to battery power when external power is removed. The Falcon can utilize traditional GPS tracking in combination with Wi-Fi tracking, significantly improving its tracking capabilities indoors or in major urban centres. The Falcon can also use it in conjunction with temperature sensors.
The Falcon Cellular's I2C interface, along with its digital and analog inputs, allows for a variety of sensors to be connected, such as
High Accuracy Temp Sensor -55 to +125 °C operating range.
