Connectors and cable assemblies from Switchcraft and Conxall are powering robust tracking and data collection devices that assist with acquisition of information.  

Since many of these collection devices are subject to extreme conditions, the applications require connectors and cable assemblies that can withstand harsh environments. Switchcraft and Conxall’s full line of watertight standard and custom electrical components meets all data acquisition needs.

Products from the Con-X line are being used with GPS tracking devices to help companies better track and monitor their fleets of trucks, containers and trailers. Installed on the exterior of the vehicle, these tracking devices use the GPS constellation to calculate the exact coordinates of the asset.  

External sensors can be added for the GPS tracking devices to notify fleet owners or operators when the trailer/container is empty or full, when cargo doors are opened and closed and whether temperatures inside the trailer are at the right level for transporting food products. This information is sent via satellite so that location and sensor information can be received anywhere.  

Con-X products are ideal for asset tracking devices, thanks to their rugged and water-resistant construction. Additionally, custom cable assemblies from Conxall can be designed to mate with the tracking units and meet additional tracking and monitoring requirements of the application.  

Switchcraft and Conxall products are available in Australia from Clarke & Severn Electronics .
