Navigating Safety and Efficiency: The Technical Edge of Beacon International’s GPS Tracking System

In the demanding world of asset management, particularly within sectors dealing with hazardous materials such as asbestos and silica dust, efficiency and security are paramount. The Beacon PlantGuard tracking system is a robust solution tailored to these challenging environments.

Advanced GPS Technology

At the heart of the tracker’s appeal is its cutting-edge GPS technology. It utilises a Sony CXD5605 GNSS module that supports multiple constellations, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS. This multi-constellation support ensures higher accuracy and reliability in asset tracking, which is crucial for industries where precision is non-negotiable.

Robust and Reliable Hardware:

The tracker is designed for durability and longevity. Its ultra-rugged, weatherproof IP68 and IK07-rated housing can withstand impact, dust, and brief submersion, making it ideal for harsh operational environments. Powered by 3 x AA Lithium or Lithium Thionyl Chloride batteries, the device can operate in extreme temperatures and offers a battery life of over 10 years depending on the tracking settings—making it a ‘deploy once’ solution for long-term tracking.

Operational Benefits:

  • Adaptive Tracking: The device offers flexible tracking options, including periodic or movement-based updates. This adaptive tracking allows the device to increase update frequency automatically when the asset is in motion, providing detailed information when needed while conserving battery life during periods of inactivity.
  • Geofence and Alert Capabilities: Onboard geofencing allows up to 500 geofences with up to 100 points per geofence to be configured directly on the device. This enables precise location-based actions and alerts, enhancing security protocols and operational efficiency.
  • Theft Recovery and Impact Detection: Features like Theft Recovery Mode and configurable impact-detection alerts help mitigate the risks of asset theft and damage by providing real-time tracking and alerts when unusual activities are detected.

Intelligent Power Management

The PlantGuard tracking system includes sophisticated power management features, such as an early registration abort that saves power when out of cellular coverage. Its ‘Battery Low’ and ‘Battery Critical’ alerts ensure maintenance teams can proactively replace batteries before they fail.

Data Security and Integration

Data security is paramount, especially when sensitive location and operational data are involved. The Beacon PlantGuard Tracker secures telematics data with military-level AES-256 encryption from the device to Device Manager, and data sent to third-party systems is secured via HTTPS. This ensures that critical data remains confidential and integral throughout its transit.
