Extra Asset Protection For Rugged Conditions

Winter is coming, and from experience we know that the winter weather takes its toll on machinery and equipment. The Equipment Control units you have mounted are also more exposed in the cold, rugged and at times extreme winter. In order to secure your devices better, ABAX has now launched a specially designed steel cage that protects your devices from falling off or dislodged without compromising GPS-signal.

The 3mm thick steel cage is a must-have if:

  • your equipment operates in demanding, rugged conditions (e.g. excavator grab, aggregate)
  • you want an extra layer of protection for your valuable assets

“The new steel cage is an affordable solution that several companies will benefit from. In addition to protecting your equipment, the new cage will make sure the unit is securely fastened in almost every condition”, says Chris Miller, Country Manager of ABAX UK.

The steel cage is available for both small and large battery driven Equipment Control units.

Longer battery lifetime and more accurate GPS

Earlier this year, ABAX also released a new equipment control unit with 40% better battery capacity and a more accurate GPS. This has been welcomed by our customers.

“We are now seeing many customers finding the position of machinery and equipment to be spot-on in the map. Of course, customers are very pleased with this, as they always know exactly where their equipment and machinery are located”, says Chris Miller, Country Manager of ABAX UK.

The improved battery capacity is also something that our customers naturally appreciate. For example, if you only need 1 position on your device per day, the device with a small battery pack now lasts 2240 days, while the device with a large battery pack lasts 4480 days. The benefit of this is of course that the interval of changing batteries becomes much longer.

The small battery pack is size 86x63x20mm and weighs only 130 grams. The device with a large battery pack is size 145x63x20mm and weighs only 230 grams.
