When first considering GPS asset tracking and telematics, most customers think of cars, light vehicles, and trucks. These vehicles require a device to be installed and hardwired into the battery and ignition. However, many valuable assets, like trailers, caravans, and equipment, lack an engine or battery to connect a device to, leading some to believe they can’t benefit from GPS tracking devices or telematics solutions.

At Fleetware, we understand the importance of tracking non-powered assets as part of your fleet management.

Over the years, we’ve tested numerous battery-powered and solar-powered devices. Now, we are thrilled to introduce our new go-to device: the Slim 10. A low-cost, battery-powered solution that offers indoor and outdoor asset tracking with up to ten years of location tracking on just two AA user-replaceable batteries.



Key Features of the Slim 10 Asset Tracker

  • Rugged IP68 Housing: The Slim 10 is waterproof and dustproof, designed to withstand harsh conditions.
  • ‘Deploy-Once’ Battery Life: With a magnetic switch for hassle-free implementation, enjoy long-term tracking without frequent battery replacements.
  • Tamper Detection: Added security ensures the device alerts you if removed from the asset.
  • Versatile Tracking: Perfect for indoor and outdoor use, the Slim 10 utilises GNSS, WiFi AP MAC address scanning, and cell tower location technology to ensure seamless tracking, even under weak satellite signals.
  • Clever Connectivity: Smart switching between WiFi AP and cell tower triangulation maintains continuous and accurate tracking.
  • Easy Self-Installation: Install the device using screws, bolts, cable ties, or rivets. It’s quick and simple.
  • Flexible Configuration: Customise your experience by setting heartbeat rates, movement thresholds, and accelerometer settings. Configure updates based on time intervals or trigger them when movement occurs.
  • Efficient Battery Use: Conserve battery life with frequent updates during movement and less frequent updates during inactivity.
  • Comprehensive Monitoring: Keep track of your assets with impact detection, rotation counting, tip detection, and non-movement monitoring – perfect for monitoring demurrage.
