Ctrack launches new plug and play tracking devices

Ctrack has introduced two ultra-compact wireless tracking devices aimed at cars and vans as well as non-powered assets.

The BX500 and BX600 units are ideal for use in all cars and vans, as well as non-powered assets

Measuring just 137mm and 97mm long respectively, the BX500 and BX600 units can be easily fitted and concealed and feature adaptive tracking, making use of advanced accelerometer technology and GPS data to intelligently monitor movement and send live updates.

Both devices can detect motion and switch automatically to a fully configurable live reporting mode to track vehicles and assets while active, returning to the ultra-low power mode when stationary. Either model can also be scaled to provide continuous tracking information or just once a day in order to preserve battery life.

The BX500 model is powered by removable lithium batteries, which can last up to four years when providing a single, daily tracking update. It features a rugged housing, IP67-rated for both water and dust protection, enabling it to be externally mounted on assets that are exposed to outdoor weather conditions.

The BX600 is a rechargeable GPS unit with a battery life of up to six months on a single charge and can be used to track vehicles and assets where long battery life is required. It can also be easily recharged via USB.

“With these latest devices, fleet and specialist equipment operations can now be in control of every aspect of their business, knowing the status and location of all their vehicles and unpowered assets,” explained Steve Thomas, managing director of Ctrack UK. “All our battery-powered units can be combined with our entire range of vehicle tracking solutions for complete visibility and control through a single online software platform.”
