1. Introduction
GL500 is a powerful GPS tracker designed for fixed asset tracking applications.GL500
work with two CR123A lithium-batterys.GL500 wakes up every 1-40hours and sends the
info and then return to deepsleep.GL500 can standby 1000days. With built-in motion
sensor, GL500 can also detect the motion of asset all the time and give a warning
message. Based integrated @track protocol, the GL500 can communicate with a backend
server through the GPRS/GSM network to transfer reports of emergency, geo-fence
boundary crossings, low battery or scheduled GPS position along with many other useful
functions. System Integrators can easily setup their tracking systems based on the
full-featured @Track protocol.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference.
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
