Spireon is excited to announce the upcoming availability of its first solar-powered trailer and asset telematics solution, providing customers with a new way to gain location information and Rich Data around their trailers and assets through a reliable and renewable energy source.The self-powered solution is compatible with a range of transportation vehicles and equipment, including dry vans and intermodal applications such as containers. Upon installation, customers tap into a renewable energy source that powers Spireon FleetLocate’s Rich Data telematics solution that was pioneered over six years ago.The new trailer-mounted all-in-one solar panel and telematics unit is easily installed in under twenty minutes. From maximizing the operating life of the internal battery with solar recharging, Spireon’s new solar-powered hardware integrates with the Spireon FleetLocate solution, providing businesses with real-time location visibility and Rich Data for their trailers and assets, now with increased power source reliability and decreased hassle, time and resources spent on maintenance.The solar-powered telematics unit is designed to ensure maximum durability both on and off the road. Trailers and assets can now gather telematics information without drawing power from an external battery, providing a more reliable and continuous power source to the unit’s rechargeable battery.General availability for the new solar-powered Spireon FleetLocate solution is scheduled for next quarter. Spireon will discuss the new solution at the upcoming 2016 ATA Management Conference & Exhibition, October 1–4, in Las Vegas, NV.
