A leading developer and manufacturer of automatic vehicle location systems,
personal and asset tracking products for commercial and
industrial applications.
ROCK
The Advanced Asset Tracking System
PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The FALCOM ROCK, an innovative, adaptable and stand-alone
tracking device that can be used for both mobile and fixed asset
management. The device concept combines the latest quad-band
GSM/GPRS technology for communication, a high-sensitive GPS
receiver for positioning, a waterproof compact case, and durable
internal battery pack for long-life operation eleminating the need for
an external power source. This is an ideal solution for managing and
tracking containers, trailers and high-value assets where no power
source is present. Many features of the device and the new firmware
can be downloaded over-the-air helping you to manage your mobile
and fixed assets, provide better customer service, reduce costs and
increase profits. An energy harvesting version with solar panel option
is currently under development and it will be available 4Q2012.
This system is shipped preconfigured and programmed with simple functions to report the device location
periodically at a user configurable interval. A detailed GPS report includes NMEA 0183 GPRMC, which shows
position data in the form of UTC, Latitude, Longitude, Altitude. This integrated report also contains GSM net code
and base station code, helping locate the position of the asset when a GPS signal is not available. After a userpredefined timeout, tracker reports current position and automatically shuts down, saving all battery power until
next timeout. When the timer runs out, the unit wakes up and reports new GPS position within approx. 2 minutes
(depending on network situation).
