To name the GTTS-2000B a “Plug & Play” unit is already too much. It doesn’t even have wiring or switches. It sticks like a magnet on a ferrous surface and activates itself this way. The GTTS-2000B is used to track and trace objects in the most simple and reliable way covering the entire globe. Especially objects that can’t provide a suitable power supply, obtaining power is difficult or costly, like container transports, one-time-transports, sporting events etc.
The GTTS-2000B is a battery operated tracking and tracing device that can be installed much faster then any other system. Antennas and battery are fully integrated in the all-weather-proof housing, so no wiring is needed. Mounting it onto a (ferrous) steel surface is made very easy by the (optional) integrated strong magnets. The GTTS-2000B will be activated automatically if it is placed onto a steel surface like for example a container or the roof of a truck.
The system will report its GPS location and speed in predefined time intervals through the Iridium Satellite Network to your own pc/server or to a dedicated geo-server. With mapping software the position or trace is visualized. The reporting time intervals are controlled by an integrated motion sensor. This sensor distinguishes driving/sailing from stand still. At stand still the reporting frequency is lowered in order to minimize the communication costs and to maximize the batteries life span. Reporting frequency and other settings are “Over The Air” reconfigurable. The GTTS-2000B can send appr. 3650 messages from one battery. Every message contains two reports.
Example battery life:
8 transmissions/ 16 reports per day. 3,2 year
6 transmissions / 16 reports per day. 3,6 year
4 transmissions /16 reports per day. 4,2 year
2 transmissions /16 reports per day. 5,0 year
1 transmissions /16 reports per day. 5,5 year
