New asset tracking and monitoring device integrates hardware and software with network access and data-management portal for a low-cost, ready-to-deploy solution
NEW YORK, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xact Technology, LLC, a solutions provider for the GPS tracking, LBS, and M2M industries, announced today the launch of the latest addition to its OpenM2M family of products -- TuFF Trax, an integrated, end-to-end tracking and monitoring solution ideal for a wide range of embedded telematics applications.
TuFF Trax breaks new ground by integrating hardware and software with network access and data-management portals while offering an open architecture and an open-source software base for building customized LBS and M2M solutions.
TuFF Trax is engineered for unparalleled accuracy and reliability. Building on the features of the Xact Development Board, TuFF Trax adds a daughterboard with a regulated power supply, buffered and level-shifted I/O, additional serial ports, a wiring harness, and connectors (including a JTAG debug/diagnostic connector). Designed with the most demanding environments in mind, TuFF Trax features an IP69K housing, 12/24V power input for wide range of installations, and is made in America for unrivaled engineering quality.
Xact Technology offers OpenM2M, an open-architecture ecosystem of hardware, software, data network and portal offerings, combined to offer end-to-end M2M solutions. The centerpiece of OpenM2M is the Xact Development Board -- a powerful hardware platform that integrates a high-performance and flexible processor, GSM transceiver, GPS engine, PTCRB and FCC certifications, and plenty of expansion ports to allow customers to add their own sensors.
"Xact's value proposition is offering customizable, robust, cost-effective solutions for M2M applications," said Anthony Protopsaltis, Xact Technology's Director of Product Development. "And TuFF Trax is a perfect example -- with its versatility, low cost, and top quality and reliability."
"The Xact TuFF Trax is a result of a joint marketing and product development effort between Xact and LHP Telematics," said Travis Jones, CTO of LHP Telematics. "The Xact TuFF Trax is a perfect fit for customers who want to add telematics to their heavy duty products without a CAN bus interface. Early on we recognized that a robust telematics control unit at an affordable price would rapidly expand the M2M market in heavy equipment fleets.
TuFF Trax joins Xact Trax, a prepackaged portable GPS tracking device, in Xact's fast-growing hardware product line. TuFF Trax will be available in Q2 2012, with a MSRP of $299.99. Xact Technology will be exhibiting at CTIA Wireless 2012 which is being held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA on May 8 - 10, 2012. Come visit us at booth 3752
