Re: Container/asset tracking device

Hi Guys,

after testing
- Wonderproud M7
- Teltonika AT1000
- Quecklink GL505
- Gosafe G626

i am totaly frustrated in finding an reliable and stable working Asset Tracker. Maybe you can recomend me one?

- Wonderproud M7: Sleep mode sucks and the Movement Sensor sometimes like to work and sometimes not. Not really stable working solution.
- Teltonika AT1000: has gps reception problems and also like to work sometimes and sometimes not. The AT1000 is not anymore available from Teltonika (maybe they understood that the device sucks).
- Quecklink GL505: From two! Testdevices we received both devices broken after one week. Documentation sucks, Support sucks (they requested us to send the first device back and does not send a new one back, i mean, seems that they are not in need of new customers).
- Gosafe G626: Firmware totaly unstable and you really need good nervs to configure the device (extremly bad documentation).

I know, there is our friends from Israel (Pointer) but their device is so expensive that our typical customer is not willing to pay for it.
So we have the nice situation that there is a huge demand but no stable working hardware i know :-(

Any ideas?

Thanks
Wolf.

Hi Small_Gprs,

any idea how much the devices costs?
And if i understand it correct they are not already implemented in Wialon.

Do you use them? How many devices?

Container/asset tracking device

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Regarding Quecklink GL505.
Could be great product but :
When it sleeps every thing is ok.
When in move it has fix interval of 5min and more, not less.
The problem is that when it suppose to sleep again it keeps sending messages and the battery ends after 2-3 weeks instead 3 years.
In short words: software problems. can be fixed if Queclink will do it.

As Asset Tracker i use their GL-200 with my ext 3.6AH battery. Total of 5AH.
Works 45 days , 30 min movment time/day.
On move it gives 15sec fix interval - great for real time tracking .
Great product , well supported by Gurtam.
Best solution.

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Calamp support seems to be shi*.
I remember that i requested some infos but never got an answer. So no device for us.

I am testing at the moment HW from Kingneed (chinese!) but since 2 months the device is in my car, on my desk, back in car and configured to send when device is moving. So movement sensor is on (which costs realy a lot of power) and battery still 50% full (after two months).
It has strong mangnets, a IPx56 case (should be ipx7 but i dont trust), a 15400 maH LiIo battery (beware of transport and shipping, DHL etc. starts to make troubles with transport of LiIon Batterys) and sample price was 134 USD or so...

But Still: really nothing perfect at the market!

Container/asset tracking device

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Regarding Kingneed.
All models use same protocol - Nice.
Tracking is accurate and nice. Long battery time. Good case with strong magnet.
The bad:
SMS commands - No configuration utility.   with time you get used to it.
In Gurtam web you get only GPS data. no battery level or other data.
To know battery level you need to send sms command. you can get only 3 levels : High. Mid.Low   Big problem.

Regarding:
GH3000.
Works ok , short battery time. old technology.
The bad:
Hard to monitor or set it remotely , practicaly - no way. Big Problem.
GH1202  was perfect model , GH3000 is bad to my opinion.

Better USE  Queclink GL200 or GL300  .
The best Asset tracker from all aspects.
For long battery time there  is 3.7V input to connect any external battery size.

Container/asset tracking device

Re: Container/asset tracking device

The GH3000 can be configured using SMS commands but in an asset tracking situation you only be setting the initial configuration. Battery life is dependent upon the send fequency. If additioanl battery time is needed an external battery can be fitted and connected using the standard charging connector.

Monitoring can be done using Wialon as it is a registerd device or via sms

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Hi Concox,

if you want to spam this forum, maybe you should do it a bit more clever?

Lets check the original question: Trackpro asked for a "Container-Tracker" which implicits, that he want to track a "Container" and not a "Person".
Did you ever saw a Container from less than 10meters?
Just wondering where and how to connect your little personal tracker onto a container?
How about IP67? 96h Standby time? Other mentioned HW here in this threat can be used for many months or years without need to be recharged.
How about temperatures below 0 deg? Do you guaranty working system below -20deg?
and so on and so on....

Wolf.

P.S. here in this forum are ONLY professional integrators. If you have great products, spent some time in explaining them and do not just do stupied spam here... with spam you will just do nothing good to your company and i am sure that your boss wount like to hear that YOU are ruining HIS brand!

Re: Container/asset tracking device

This post is great its been going for a year and a half now. there is one calamp ATU-620 registered with wialon, I wonder who it is! I am a little curious about this product, this device is interesting because it uses AA batteries.

I fell your pain about the stability of devices! we don't want anything trick, just a reliable, stable way of recieving a one GPS point every 24 hours for at least one year.

am also looking at the TTU-700 series for possible testing thanks to you guys! it seems the TTU-700 is a very well accepted and reliable unit.

I hope to have some more hardware to work with soon!

Hey, Wolf!

we've been testing Calamp OBD device for a couple of months, it seemed us a really good and reliable device with their own philosophy in terms of OBD-data capturing, but works good despite a really complicated configuration tool tailored for true engineers mostly, anyway...

As for their policy of cooperation i would agree with you that they have some specific way of operating, nevertheless we managed to get some direct contacts of their european entity, so if you need to speed up their reaction you can poke me in Skype and we could try to make the process more effective. Last time they had some growth in our platform so they are supposed to have some interest in that.

Container/asset tracking device

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Hello Wolf,
We have just ordered a few devices from Pointer for testing. We are testing the 8M Power version asset tracker. It is not too expensive for what it is and does. If you tally up the hours of supporting cheap devices or modified devices, you lose the customer loses and yes he did pay a cheap price, but your reputation and profits drop. There is also a 3 year version. It is waterproof, and can charge when the trailer is connected to the truck. It can last up to 8 months reporting once a day and when hooked to power -it tracks normally like a normal tracker. It has tamper switch and can be permanently or mounted using magnetic mount- 68 kg magnet strength. It has a good size ratio.

I have been looking around a good while now and decided to test this. It has everything you need. You get what you pay for. We just want to install and forget.
We will let you know how it goes.
Regards
Glenn

either way, i agree fully, its a long road to finding the perfect device! going to have a look at some of the suggestions here as well, all i want is one point a day for one year on a battery, reliable, and reasonable $, its weird how this can be elusive goal

Container/asset tracking device

Re: Container/asset tracking device

We are evaluation a locking solution for containers, it clips onto the door locking mechanism thus securing the doors. The tracking device, in this case a Tramigo T23 Magnum, is inserted into the lock before the lock is closed and locked. I think we could use any tracker that can fit in the opening. The tracking device then captures movement, location, tampering etc. The lock is coming from a South African company Leopard Lock. Will update the forum once we have some test details and price indication.

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Hi All.

I came back to play with GL505 from Queclink.
Today the new versions do work very well.
I don't let it  go to Deep sleep   (3 years )
I prefer to have continues control by long TCP.
In rest mode the interval is 1 day.
When in move interval is 5min/60min can be set from web/application.
I can ask it to get position now from web/application.
Very accurate, reliable, good docs.
Water proof IPX7 .
Looks I am going to enjoy it.

Queclink-Gurtam = leading solution.

The GL505 is a powerful waterproof GPS trailer tracker designed for fixed asset tracking applications. It is powered by two user replaceable CR123A lithium batteries.

By the way.
Concox GT03A also works nice but.
Weak magnet.
Good for a week or two.

If there is external 12-24V battery then GT100 is perfect solution for asset too.

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Looking for a low cost asset battery powered tracking unit, needs three to five year battery life only neees to report its location once a week. Operating enviroment means units need to be more or less throw away when battery flat or unit damaged, we have a target price of 30$ to 35$ per unit. Anyone know of a unit that fits the requirement or any manufacturers who have a unit please get in touch, initial order is 200 units.

Thanks Lindsay

Container/asset tracking device

Re: Container/asset tracking device

Have seen a novel solution to this challenge, although it may not appeal to all - particularly if you require a bulk number of units.

1. Find a small personal or asset tracker, that is very feature rich (3.7V, A/GPS performance, Wi-Fi tracking, 3-axis accelerometer, sensors, light, temperature, etc.).
2. Pull it apart!
3. Source a Qi charger kit (receiver and transmitter), a large capacity Li-ion pack (10-20Ah, in parallel if required?), 2 large neodymium magnets, external GPS antenna (if supported by your tracker).
4. Assemble Qi receiver into Li-ion pack, supply power & SIM to the tracker, place magnets and ext GPS antenna in a row - and - heat shrink it all together - similar to this : https://goo.gl/images/M92Qod
Set and forget!

I have experience using spytec, its battery life is good, 4G LTE coverage, and usually can run for two weeks. Although most people use it as a car tracker, in fact, I think it is also suitable for tracking containers or individuals.
