The DQ90 solar satellite tracker is a compact, versatile IP68 waterproof GPS device for monitoring the location of a wide range of asset types on land or at sea. It is certified Intinsically safe meeting ATEX, HERO & other industry standards for use in hazardous environments, such as Oil & Gas and mining applications. Boats & vehicles, shipping cargo containers, tenders, small vessels, buoys & other assets without power can be easily monitored. The DQ80 solar-powered internal batteries can operate for up to 8 years of maintenance-free life. Configurable reporting modes from 5-minutes when moving with daily status message enable extremely low-cost monitoring for marine fleets & vehicles for both logistics & anti-theft applications.
A vibration sensor in the unit detects movement, wakes the device & gets a GPS fix. It sends these co-ordinates via the Globalstar Simplex satellite network. Location data is then passed via the network ground station to the Duotraq server, where the position can be viewed on any internet enabled device. Tracking intervals are generally configured for each application, with a ‘stationary’ and ‘moving’ period specified. A ‘self-geofence’ setting can be used to reduce messages when the device remains in the same location, such as moored boats, offshore buoys, trailers or plant for example. Any number of ‘geofence’ location zones can be set from the Duotraq management software to indicate movement into/out of these areas.
