Shelton, CT. OEM Data Delivery, a leading developer of data management systems for users of high-value (and remote) equipment, has introduced a new addition to its RFID line of robust Service Trackers. The new product, the ST-570-HZ, is a powered active RFID tracking device that wirelessly identifies individual equipment, allowing worksite managers to track the location and activity of all capital assets, automatically.
The ST-570-HZ works seamlessly with any OEM GoPod data capture hub to record machine transactions of all types; for example, vehicle identification, and the distribution of fuel and other service consumables. It also generates data that is critical for inventory allocation and management, and for maintenance and repair scheduling. Finally, it is one of the most powerful and versatile tools available for estimating job costs, and tracking those costs as they are incurred.
The ST-570-HZ also incorporates two unique, new features that many customers said would be “most valuable” – the freedom from battery change-outs, and true, “drive-by” data capture convenience. The ST-570-HZ is a powered RFID device that draws its energy from the individual machine it interfaces with (bulldozer or loader, etc.) so it’s battery-free. “Drive-by” data capture means the ST-570-HZ automatically identifies itself to nearby superintendent, Fuel and/or Service vehicles equipped with any type of GoPOD System.
Like the original OEM “Cube,” the ST-570-HZ was engineered as part of the Service Tracker and GoPOD system, to manage an entire fleet of construction, mining, rental or other equipment without ever interrupting normal equipment operation. It is fully scalable, and compatible with all equipment brands and models.
The ST-570-HZ was engineered for rugged, extended, outdoor service, and has a working range of -40oC to +70oC. It is sealed and tested for dust and water resistance to IP67.
The ST-570-HZ has 8 K of program memory, and LED communications diagnostics. Information from the ST-570-HZ is immediately available; data uploads into any major back-office system and integrates seamlessly with accounting software. Reports are generated nightly and delivered via email and secure web reports. It is covered by a comprehensive 2-year warranty.
Installation of ST-570-HZ units averages just 15 minutes per equipment unit; training is equally simple.
