Increased Visibility into your Assets

You know when the car was loaded, when it left your plant, where the car is in route, when it got to the distribution center, when it got to the customer, when the customer unloaded the car, and when the car was returned. And if a problem occurs, you’re immediately notified with our event-based alarms.
 

Self-Contained, Solar Powered

Our rugged solar tracking unit uses a patented solar powered system so there’s no downtime and no batteries to change. Installation is simple, and the unit can be mounted on the inside or outside of the car.
 

Wireless Flexibility

With a variety of sensor configurations, the railcar tracking unit is flexible to meet your needs. Options include
a three axis impact sensor and up to 10 wireless sensors for temperature, tilt, and proximity switch for doors,
hatches or valves, and hand brake. Wired sensors can also be deployed depending on your needs for pressure,
temperature and proximity.
