Modular Device

Asset Tracker

Description

X-CITE has developed sophisticated modular tracking solutions to enable advanced monitoring of goods and services in your network. Our end-to-end boards may be used independently or can be integrated with our X-BRAiN platform.

Use Cases

  • GPS tracking device especially designed for bikes and other assets that require a small size
  • Tracking of boxes in the context of industry 4.0 for monitoring the production chain
  • Tracking of workers for security purposes in Smart Mining
  • Environmental sensing capabilities for detecting incidents in Industry 4.0 and Smart Mining

Connectivity

Our X-TRAiCK devices support LoRa and cellular connectivity, meaning that if you want to use them in a LoRa environment, we will provide you with the right tracker ready for integration.
On the other hand, if you want to work with traditional networks, we provide tracking devices operable on 2G-3G-4G-5G bands together with data subscription, available worldwide.
We are acting as a one stop shop!

Functionalities

Our X-TRAiCK devices support both online and offline tracking of your goods through low-profile attached devices.
Not only do we support geo-localisation of the goods, together with standard geofencing and alerting in case the tracker leaves pre-set virtual boundaries, we can also optionally include integrated temperature sensors, humidity sensors and shock captors.
Based on all information measured with the above-mentioned sensors, we will provide you online information on the current status of your goods, as well as their tracking history.
Optionally, we can also utilise our X-BRAiN platform to set up some triggers and alerts anytime a boundary is breached for any of the measured parameters.

Power

Standard trackers support low power consumption and may run several years with a simple battery.
Some devices using classical cellular networks may require battery recharge through a standard USB adapter.
