4G LTE CAT-M1/NB-IOT REMOTE SENSOR IN A RUGGED HOUSING
The Falcon Cellular is a super-smart, battery-powered tracking device in a rugged IP67 housing - in particular designed for asset location with temperature monitoring.
Super-long battery life is possible with LTC (Lithium Thionyl Chloride) batteries, or connect to a power source for a permanent solution. The Falcon comes in a 2G version, or a 4G LTE CAT-M1 / NB-IoT combo module. The 4G version is especially designed for low-power operation - resulting in the longest battery life around.
Multiple input interfaces and a digital output allow for monitoring and control for many years. The Falcon Cellular uses a combination of GPS and Wi-Fi to track assets both outdoors and inside buildings, warehouses, depots etc.
The I2C interface supports a range of sensors, in particular the Digital Matter temperature probe. This is a great solution for cold-chain applications, where the Falcon device can be used to track items as small as pallets or coolbox containers, providing accurate position data and very accurate and responsive temperature monitoring.
