Asset Tracking

TotalLink Active RFID Tags

The only active RFID tag in the world integrated with a GPS unit for advanced fleet management and asset tracking functionalities.

Active RFID Tags Integrated with GPS Fleet Management

The Total Telematics TotalLink solution is an Active RFID system that comprises of small TotalLinks that are placed on assets to be monitored that communicate via RF at 2.4GHz to the TotalHub. In addition to its fleet management functionalities, the TotalHub also functions as a hub for the TotalLinks that are within the RF reception radius of up to 250 feet (70m). The data received from the RF Tags is processed by the TotalHub and, the data is routed by the TotalHub via the cellular network to the fleet management and/or asset tracking server.

The TotalLink sends the TotalHub a ping message every 10 seconds. The message includes the unit ID, the RF signal strength, and optionally, IOs. Every TotalLink may be assigned to communicate to one particular TotalHub or any number of TotalHub units defined within a system.

The TotalLink has a powerful 32bit CPU with a 2.4 GHz IEEE802.15.4 transceiver and a 2400mAh lithium battery that can power the unit for up to 36 months, all packaged within a small waterproof enclosure. The TotalLinks can communicate to a radius of up to 210ft (70m).

Features

Battery Powered

The TotalLink sends the TotalHub a ping message every 30 seconds. The message includes the unit ID, the RF signal strength, and optionally, IOs. Every TotalLink may be assigned to communicate to one particular TotalHub or any number of TotalHub units defined within a system.

Driver ID

Driver identification – drivers IDs that are authorized to drive the specific vehicle are downloaded to the unit OTA and only the drivers that have the matching ID’s are authorized to start the vehicle and the driver ID is sent to the control center database.

Temperature Monitoring

The TotalLink’s serve as wireless temperature sensors with internal or external temperature sensor support.

IO

The TotalLink has the option of sending two digital inputs. For example, if the door of a container is opened, the TotalLink will send the data to the TotalHub which will generate an alarm message sent via cellular to the server.

Waterproof IP67

Packaged in a small, IP67 rated enclosure.

Range Configuration

For certain applications in which the 210ft (70m) communicaiton range is too powerful, the TotalLink communication range can be shortened to 3ft, 6ft, 15ft, 30ft (1m,2m,5m or 10m) as needed.
