Emerson Rolls Out GO Real-Time 4G/5G Global Trackers for Cold Chain; Amy Childress Discusses
BERLIN, GERMANY - Giving supply-chain connectivity an extra boost, Emerson recently launched its newest real-time trackers, the GO real-time 4G/5G global and global plus. Using Cat-M, Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology, the company will be able to provide users with real-time data when shipping high-value products worldwide.
“Emerson provides real-time data and insights that allow our customers to take meaningful action,” said Amy Childress, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Cargo for Emerson’s cold chain business. “With the phase-out of older cellular networks and the growth of IoT technologies, it is imperative that we leverage these new networks for our customers. Whether they are transporting food, healthcare items, or other valuable cargo, our technology and insights enable our customers’ shipments to be delivered with the highest possible quality.”
Through its latest innovation, Emerson is providing reliable connectivity through Cat-M and NBIoT technology, each derived from 4G LTE, a press release explained. Major carriers have already begun rolling out extensive infrastructure to accommodate these new 4G and 5G networks, enabling expansive growth of IoT applications. Therefore, Emerson has aligned with these network carriers and is working with its providers and customers to create a smooth transition.
Emerson’s new GO real-time 4G/5G global and global plus trackers are able to monitor in-transit conditions including temperature, location, light, and humidity for up to 90 days of continuous operation. Ultra-low temperatures, down to -80 degrees C, can be monitored with optional and detachable temperature probes as well.
To help ensure optimal connectivity across the globe, the trackers are equipped with two SIM cards, both of which can connect using multiple modes. Additionally, the GO real-time 4G/5G global plus comes with added battery capacity and the option to be configured with additional sensors for added benefit, such as CO2 monitoring.
