Eco Trailer

Plantcom Eco Trailer

The industry’s most advanced & most versatile dual mode GPS unit for Trailer Tracking.


Packaged in a robust IP67 waterproof enclosure with a large 7800 mA rechargeable lithium back up battery that enables the unit to send up to 5000 GPS locations on a single charge.

The Eco Trailer will automatically switch from regular vehicle tracking mode to asset tracking mode when the external power is disconnected.

For example, when the trailer is disconnected from the cabin, the unit will automatically be powered by the backup battery and will switch to “asset tracking mode.” In this mode, instead of sending GPS in the normal predetermined interval of
1-2 minutes, the unit will send GPS data in longer intervals to preserve battery life. For example the unit will send once a day when parked, and will wake up automatically and send an alarm on vibration then switch to send data every XX minutes for as long as the movements.
