Trackunit Launches 5G-ready IoT Device for Non-powered Equipment

Trackunit’s second-generation Spot product will transform the non-powered construction equipment segment with a range of enhanced and new features on the original model.
  • Spot 2 launches today with 5G-ready solution for non-powered equipment
  • Fast setup, instant connectivity highlight next-gen capability of battery-powered asset
  • IoT device bridges connectivity gap between Trackunit’s Raw and Kin products
  • The device aligns with the Eliminate Downtime movement and will be on show at Bauma

Aalborg, Denmark, August 30th, 2022, Global IoT solutions provider Trackunit has today launched Spot 2, engineered to meet the rugged environmental demands of the off-highway sector. The self-contained, battery-powered device works independent of machine power and provides customers a 5G-ready solution that is easy to install and immediately connects equipment of all shapes and sizes.

The new Spot device offers increased connectivity and visibility to the full fleet, significantly reducing operating costs and increasing the utilization of every single machine in real-time enabling Equipment and Site Managers to quickly locate equipment at depots and worksites using the Trackunit platform.

“This is very much in alignment with the Eliminate Downtime movement as it cuts down on inefficiency and contributes to making construction a better, more useful industry,” said Lærke Ullerup, Chief Marketing Officer. “We will continue to look at our products and relentlessly search for better solutions as we pursue the eliminate downtime agenda.”

“We see Spot as a natural complement to Trackunit’s Raw (Cellular) and Kin (Bluetooth) products, providing a capability in between the two,” said Dave Swan, Senior Vice President Products. “With Spot, users don’t have to guess and search for equipment, and will always be the first to know if something moves without permission, helping reduce theft.

“Using a cellular connection, Spot pinpoints a precise GPS location with an ‘instant on’, 1-minute install with no machine downtime,” he added.

Among Spot 2’s many features, operators can set tracking frequency while the new power efficient design has doubled estimated battery life allowing 4,000 message transmissions. When configured for two messages per day, the batteries should not require replacing within five years.

The hardware also allows users to take advantage of the latest technology which, through continual improvement and refinement, can help deliver long-term success. Other features include:

  • LTE-M1 / NB-IoT Network
  • Bluetooth 5.2
  • New Industrial Class Mechanical Design
  • Certified for IP66K and IP69K
  • Light Sensor for Smart Activation
  • Updated Configuration Tools

Trackunit will be showcasing Spot 2 at Bauma, the industry-leading European event for construction, October 24-30, alongside many of its other products.
