DPL Telematics launches its next generation AssetView Mid Tracking System for affordable, long-life battery powered tracking.

The AssetView is an advanced solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of any powered or unpowered asset to improve logistics, manage inventory and curb theft. The small, portable GPS unit is completely self-contained and may be hidden on any asset and installs in seconds.

The unit is the first telematics product of its kind to feature:

  • No external wiring or antenna
  • Internal battery power from three x AA Lithium batteries provides power for up to 10 years on daily updates, up to 3.5 years on more detailed tracking
  • Wireless, two-way communication activates recovery mode or set movement alerts
  • Little to no sky view required so it may be hidden inside or under most assets
  • Waterproof IP 68 and IK07 rated designfor deployment in harsh environments
  • Tip & impact detection for immediate notifications of potential safety issues or asset abuse
  • Integrated Bluetooth gateway detects nearby Bluetooth tags for extended asset tracking and monitoring
  • The size of a computer mouse, it is compact and completely portable and may be rotated between company assets and hidden easily
  • GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and Beidou positioning for faster, more accurate locations
  • Global cellular coverage can track assets across borders
  • Month-to-month agreement -- no long-term contract, deactivate and reactivate anytime without penalty

The AssetView combines multiple technologies to maximize battery life while operating and remaining active in extremely low power modes. The unique solution is a powerful tool to reduce theft, prevent loss and manage inventory.

The AssetView is powered by 3 x AA 1.5V batteries, rather than requiring constant charging or a proprietary power source. Low power notifications remotely alert customers if the batteries get low so they know when to change them, well in advance of depletion.

The AssetView’s proprietary Adaptive Tracking technology increases its reporting frequency when movement is detected and automatically reduces it when stationary. This intelligence delivers long battery life while actively alerting on curfew violation, movement or geofence breach as well as allowing the user to switch to Recovery Mode over the air.

“The AssetView is the first tracking solution of its kind to offer such a large combination of technologies in a simple final product, delivering long battery life without sacrificing two-way communications and real time alerts. Its small size and affordable price point allow anybody to easily track nearly anything, regardless of its power source,” says Tony Nicoletti, VP of Sales and Business Development at DPL Telematics. “Customers control their monthly subscription with the option to deactivate and reactivate as needed without penalty, which is ideal for seasonal or demand-based usage.”

“Since the AssetView has minimal install time and uses readily available AA batteries, customers can easily replace them anytime they are alerted that its power is getting low.” adds Nicoletti. “It is truly an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain tracking solution for virtually any asset to decrease loss exposure, better manage asset inventories and improve logistics.”
