Trailer Tracking


The solar powered or hard wired XT4970D is an energy harvesting dual carrier LTE platform supporting long term, remote deployments without the need to replace the battery.


Tracking Applications

  • Trailer and Container
  • Long Term Unpowered Applications
  • Heavy Equipment
  • 8.45 x 4.73 x 1.06 (21.5 x 12 x 7 cm)
GPS solar and battery powered trailer tracking device

Solar Battery Charger

FLT-4970D utilizes a high efficiency solar panel to charge and maximize the operating life of the internal Lithium Ion battery. Customers who require frequent data for location, health and monitoring of their remote assets can be assured that XT4970D will provide more frequent data for longer periods compared with other trailer tracking devices in the market today.

  • Dual Carrier (AT&T and Verizon) LTE/HSPA+ Cat. 4
  • Embedded cellular and GPS antennas
  • Integrated high-precision GPS engine
  • 3-Axis Accelerometer and Motion Detector
  • Internal Temperature Sensor
  • Optional Bluetooth®, ZigBee®, 1-Wire and IO
  • 10.6 Ah Backup Battery
  • IP67

The XT4970D supports highly configurable reporting frequency and event triggers and thresholds along with 16Mb flash memory that supports up to 10K 11-point geofences. The internal 10.6Ah battery is best in class exceeding industry standards for charge and discharge temperature extremes, capable of more than 4000 life cycles by controlling and optimizing battery SOC and DOD. Safe charging and discharging termination over temperature is also monitored and managed by the Device.


Designed to withstand various environmental factors, the XT4970D is designed and tested to meet IP67 rating. With fully sealed, protective case the device can be deployed in marine and desert environments. The XT4970D supports optional IEEE 802.15.4 Zigbee®, dual mode Bluetooth® and configurable IO interfaces to accommodate various sensors applications.
