Marlink launches tracking unit

Marlink has launched a new location-based tracking device called Smalltrack, which operates on the Iridium satellite network and can be used without connecting to external power or antenna sources.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Smalltrack can operate on a single charge for a minimum of one week using its embedded battery and antennas, with the ability to use external power and antennas if required. It includes manual rescue buttons, automatic alarms based on embedded shock sensors and geo-fencing functions.

The unit is linked to a web-based monitoring and management platform designed to assist in configuration of the units for the tracking of different classes of assets.

“Smalltrack enhances Marlink’s portfolio of proprietary tracking and safety solutions, which also includes Iritrack, our established tracking system with embedded voice and SMS in a single device. It allows us to address new market segments with a lighter and smaller device where voice and SMS are not absolute requirements,” said Danny Côté, president enterprise, Marlink.

The device is rated IP 67 for dust and water protection and features two manual configurable SOS buttons.{/mprestriction}
