Heavy Duty GPS Tracking Devices: How They Withstand Harsh Conditions

Can you afford to lose visibility of this cargo’s location? For an hour? For a day? For a week? Of course, we all know the answer already: losing visibility into critical assets can mean losing even more: money, time, productivity, safety, sanity…

Geoforce’s heavy duty GPS trackers are built to stand up against even the harshest of conditions. As the most durable GPS trackers on the market, our GT2 trackers are an excellent choice for GPS tracking for government vehicles, including:

  • Shipping Containers
  • Trailer Chassis
  • Reefer Trailers
  • Storage Containers
  • Liquid Storage Tanks
  • Tankers
  • Trucks
  • Disaster Response Equipment

In addition to government GPS tracking, Geoforce’s heavy duty GPS trackers can stand up to the harsh conditions found in mines, oil rigs, and any other harsh environment. 

What makes Geoforce’s devices the best GPS for harsh conditions? Read on to find out.

Long Battery Life

Since GPS trackers for harsh weather and environmental conditions are often in the field for long periods of time, it is crucial for them to have a long battery life. 

In the past, solar-powered devices had reliability issues in industrial settings. Panels became dirty or obstructed, packaging failed, and operating temperatures were limited. Until now, this has made using solar power for government asset tracking limited to extremely selective commercial applications.

Now, you can rely on the long battery life of Geoforce’s heavy duty GPS tracking devices. For example, our GT2 tracker operates reliably and provides data consistently, no matter the lighting conditions. For up to 10 years, the GT2 communicates valuable location data for your assets. With the use of an innovative dual-power system, the device’s solar rechargeable batteries work together with a high-capacity backup battery to produce a long lasting, reliable battery life.

Harsh Conditions

Simply put, heavy duty GPS trackers need to be durable. Every day, Geoforce trackers travel to hazardous remote oil and gas offshore operations and defense sites across the globe. With over 100,000 of our GPS trackers deployed, they have been proven to be the most rugged battery-powered tracking devices ever produced. 

All of our tracking devices are built to last, so you can count on them to transmit the data you need to be successful. Our GT2 products are constructed to be safe, even in challenging explosive environments. GT2 products are pending IECEx/ATEX ia IIC (Zone 0) intrinsically safe certification.

Geoforce’s GT1 trackers are durable as well, using satellite technology to track assets wherever they go, no matter how hazardous. This durability helps you extend equipment lifespans, offer shorter lead times, and increase safety. Overall, our durable asset trackers provide an overall operational efficiency that can’t be matched. 

Quality & Reliability

You need a GPS tracking device you can rely on to transmit critical data from anywhere on the globe, in near-real time. Quality and reliability are critical for tracking assets that go into hazardous environments.

Geoforce GT2 asset trackers are engineered with built-in Bluetooth technology. This means the GT2 can support future capabilities, including wireless sensors and other remote functionality without replacing the device.

Every GT2 tracker is designed and manufactured to meet stringent ISO 9001:2015 standards. Each unit is fully sealed for maintenance-free operation and engineered for long-lasting performance. This performance is consistent and reliable in all climates and environments.

GT2 trackers also include a message assurance feature. The unit makes multiple attempts to transmit a message if it does not receive confirmation of receipt. This way, if data is not received due to network outages or other errors, you can still receive the data you need to run your operation.
