E J Brooks, SPC offer GlobalTrak line
Dec 1, 2007 12:00 PM
E J Brooks Co and System Planning Corp (SPC) have announced their plans to jointly offer satellite, GPS, and cellular tracking and monitoring products to provide improved security and 24/7 visibility for cargo and other assets in transit.
The jointly offered Brooks GlobalTrak product family will include asset monitoring devices equipped with a suite of sensors that communicates location, condition, and security status through cell, satellite, or wireless LAN to a network communications center called the Information Management Bureau (IMB). It simultaneously tracks container assets; monitors container conditions relating to temperature, humidity, light source, and acoustics; and alerts the stakeholder(s) in real time if the container door has been breached.
This system can be applied in a covert or overt manner, and will allow Brooks' GPS ready e-seals such the ISO 17712-compliant bolt or the indicative Hyperion electronic strap seal, to be monitored electronically through the ZigBee wireless protocol. Readings will be reported through GlobalTrak to the IMB communication center, where stakeholders will have real-time access to the location, security status, and condition of shipments. The e-seal products have been designed to employ reusable electronics with replaceable bolts and straps.
