The IPack-3 (IP3) is the most capable unit in the industry. It has capabilities that outpace the best off-the-shelf units from the previous generation especially in an unpowered equipment situation.
IP3 device is setting the bar as the next generation best of breed tracking and monitoring platform that delivers maintenance-free, long-life, remotely upgrade-able, unpowered or powered tracking and monitoring seamlessly in every location worldwide.
The IP3 is much more than a fully integrated tracker and sensor interface; it is an intelligent, software-defined, low-cost, flexible and expandable platform that allows users to grow and expand the way they collect data from the edge of their operations over time. This capability “future-proofs” any large, difficult-to-reach installed base as enterprise requirements evolve and additional capabilities are added over time.
The IP3 combines a powerful computer, two-way satellite communications over the gold-standard Iridium network, flexible I/O and on-board memory, and a low total cost of ownership to deliver a solution that will evolve as our customers do.
Our unit has Long-Life Unpowered Satellite and Communication Every 15 Minutes with No Battery Changes.
The IP3 on battery power alone can transmit via satellite up to every 15 minutes round-the-clock for 7 to 10 years, using a hardened industrial plastic-encased solar panel and rechargeable battery to eliminate the high cost of constant battery changes in the field on a large fleet.
Users do not need to touch the unit after deployment for 7- to 10 years (depending on usage patterns). The power system accommodates transmission at a user-programmable rate up to every 15 minutes using the built-in solar system for energy harvesting with no impact on the battery and no need for a battery change for the lifetime of the device. Outbound commands to the unit can be received any time day or night for the life of the unit.
The unit comprises of self-power sensors as well, so no additional off-board power sources are required the total system including accessories is completely self-contained and stand-alone
