Equipment Tracking & Asset Tracking

Which do you need?

GPS Equipment Tracker Considerations


There are a wide variety of options for GPS equipment tracking and asset tracking. Understanding how an equipment tracker communicates (cellular or satellite), how it reports (every few minutes or by exception), how it is constructed (IP-6X rated) and how the backup battery functions, all go into selecting the right GPS tracker.


Equipment Tracking verse Asset Tracking


The line is blurred between the various tracking types since the GPS equipment tracker selected is more about features needed to solve business issues.  Asset trackers are generally designed to work with infrequent or no power. This means asset trackers tend to have long life batteries but report 1-3 times a day. Equipment trackers update more frequently and can capture engine hours, productivity, detailed movement and driver ID. Equipment tracking is about productivity, maintenance and safety. Asset tracking is generally about inventory and theft.


GPS Equipment tracker is a tough device designed for the harsh conditions found on construction and mining sites. The backup battery keeps the unit reporting after main power loss, which helps with theft recovery. Metal housing and heavy-duty rubberized cable help protect from accidental damage and electrical short.

The device can be programmed to include a tow alert indicating your equipment is being removed from the lot, even if the power is removed from the equipment tracking device. “On August 22, our GPS system was used by a customer to recover a $100k trailer in just hours.” Sharing the location with law enforcement led to a quick recovery.
