Which Mtrack unit is best for asset recovery purposes?
Our MtrackVII device is best suited for asset recovery. Our proven track record of a 17 year rolling average recovery rate of 95% speaks for itself.
Do you have a smaller wireless tracking device?
MtrackVII combines three technologies (GSM, GPS and RF) into one agile and practical unit. MtrackVII is the smallest wireless asset tracking and recovery device currently on the market with the battery performance it offers (12 months on a standard configuration). With all other products that claim to be wireless the devices might be smaller, but battery life is measured in hours and not months as is the case with the MtrackVII. We also pride ourselves in being solution providers and as such we can customise our products and devices to fit almost any application. Please contact us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
How long does the battery last on the wireless MtrackVII device?
If the unit is configured for a standard 60 minute sleep cycle, reporting at least one health check a day the MtrackVII’ s battery will last 12 months. The sleep cycle configuration is directly linked to the battery life of the unit, so if a unit is configured for a 120 minute sleep cycle the battery will last 24 months. MtrackVII has patented battery management technology which allows it to achieve these world first and only battery life figures.
Is there an MtrackVII unit with a rechargeable battery?
Yes, we do offer the MtrackVII with a 7800mAh rechargeable battery option. The unit can operate wirelessly if not connected to an external power source or it will trickle charge the battery if connected to an external power source (5V ~ 32V). Please contact us for more detailed information on the power options available: email@example.com
Does Mtrack offer onsite installation and maintenance services?
How long does an installation take?
Depending on the product and accessories purchased, an installation can take anything from 30min for MtrackVII devices or up to 4hours for MtrackFleet with accessories. MtrackScout is a plug & play device and as such installation takes seconds, you can install it yourself. With our other products that do require a technician to install, once a product has been ordered and prepared, a technical representative will contact you to arrange and schedule the installation. At this point we will be able to give you a more accurate estimate as to the time required per installation.
