Asset Tracking With Con-X

With the assistance of multiple members of the Con-X product line, these GPS tracking devices are helping companies better track and monitor their fleets of trucks, containers and trailers.

Installed on the exterior of the vehicle, these tracking devices use the GPS constellation to calculate the exact coordinates of the asset. With the addition of external sensors, the GPS tracking devices can also notify when the trailer/container is empty or full, when cargo doors are opened and closed and whether temperatures inside the trailer are at the right level for transporting the food that we depend on. Since the information is sent via satellite, location and sensor information is always received no matter where in the world the asset is located.

The use of the Con-X product line on asset tracking devices is perfect because of its rugged and water-resistant construction. In addition, custom cable assemblies from Conxall can be designed to mate with the tracking units and meet additional tracking and monitoring requirements of the application. If you have an application similar to this or something that needs custom cables, we can help! Contact Switchcraft at 773-792-2700 or to get started on your application today.
