DeltaTrak Intros Real-Time Loggers

DeltaTrak has announced its FlashLink RTL Prime 2G and 3G In-Transit loggers. Frederick Wu, DeltaTrak's president and CEO, said in a prepared statement: "Not only do both devices offer the benefits of a 2-in-1 logger with real-time reporting and a PDF backup report when cellular service is unavailable, each includes a longer battery shelf-life and can be switched to flight mode during use on aircraft." According to the company, the RTL Prime 3G model features a light sensor to provide an extra layer of security during shipping.

Intended for monitoring locations and temperatures during the transport of live poultry, the RTL Prime 2G and 3G loggers feature customizable high and low alarm settings. A 24-hour cloud service, which uploads data every 10 minutes, allows the real-time tracking of perishable, temperature-sensitive shipments, whether on trucks or in overseas containers. The ability to store data in the cloud, the company reports, ensures HACCP and FSMA compliance, as well as audit protection.

The RTL Prime loggers provide a 60-day trip duration, one-button activation and a visible shipping card. The 3G logger monitors location, as well as temperature and light levels, allowing businesses to see every time a truck or container door is opened during shipping. The 3G model enables exporters to track shipments to Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Italy and the United Kingdom. When the 3G logger is used for shipping to a country that operates on 2G, however, it will work there as well, the company reports.

The RTL Prime loggers transmit data using GSM cellular networks, which means they will operate in areas where GPS trackers will not function, according to the company. A Vodafone subscriber identity module is included.
