Project Description


mecSOLAR® plus is the world’s most versatile telematics unit for tracking of non-powered logistics objects. Its compact design, modular architecture, small space requirement, and field-proven maintenance-free motion detection for more than 10 years, enable it to solve all object detection challenges. MECOMO invented the solar telematics product category in 2008 – more than 120,000 units based on MECOMO design are currently in active operation in the field. mecSOLAR® was specially developed for hauled logistics objects (e.g. swap bodies, sea containers, trailers, load carriers, freight cars, etc.). It is designed for flexibility, durability and extreme robustness for all object modalities. mecSOLAR® supports the latest mobile communication networks. Built-in wired and wireless sensors can monitor all logistics-related conditions. The optional latest generation Bluetooth interface also offers freely scalable IoT swarm technology
