HCSS Telematics has different devices to fit any type of equipment in your fleet, from yellow iron and heavy equipment to light-duty trucks and tractor-trailers to non-powered equipment. Each device comes with all you need for easy installation, to get you tracking efficiently in no time.
3G OBD2 Unit
Our 3G OBD2 units feature a 30-second, plug-and-play installation that makes them perfect for pickup trucks and fleet vehicles, with an innovative antenna design and alerts when disconnected. This unit supports all five vehicle engine OBD-II protocols—the signaling designs used by all major vehicle manufacturers—while still providing customizable features including GPS location, ignition, geofencing, trip reporting, and events.
The OBD2 device allows you to capture information that is critical to effective fleet and insurance monitoring and notifies you of how your employees are driving, with notifications for excessive speed, rapid acceleration, harsh braking, speed violations, and excessive idling. It also reports check engine light status and notifies you of engine issues.
OBD2 units feature an internal backup battery that notifies you if the device is disconnected from the vehicle, as well as a store-and-forward data function that maintains data when traveling out of cellular coverage and reports it once coverage has resumed.
3G Wired Unit
Designed for heavy equipment, such as yellow iron, and large trucks like tractor trailers and heavy-duty pickups, our 3G wired units are designed with a weather-resistant case and external antennas to remotely monitor meter readings, mileage, driver behavior, peripherals, and more.
Wired units feature a backup battery and the same store-and-forward function as the OBD2 units, with two additional digital inputs for monitoring peripherals. Track equipment hours and mileage, create geofences on fixed locations, and get alerts to abnormal engine startup times to prevent theft or misuse. Wired units work on either 12- or 24-volt systems.
Satellite Asset Tracker
For equipment that can be turned on but not driven, and for all non-powered assets, HCSS offers battery-powered satellite asset trackers that will track location, movement, and engine runtime hours and report back to your HCSS Telematics system using satellite communication.
The fully self-contained devices use standard AAA Lithium Ion batteries and install quickly using a simple screw-mounted bracket, and are perfect for challenging environments due to their NEMA 4X/IP68-rated enclosure.
Satellite asset trackers are also perfect for any powered equipment being used in a remote location in which cellular service is not available. These devices send location updates twice daily and provide hour meter readings once per day with an optional interface cable.
Heavy Equipment Unit
Designed specifically for heavy construction equipment, our HE (Heavy Equipment) telematics devices are completely enclosed in a weather-resistant shell to stand up to the daily abuse they receive in the field.
HE units feature an internal antenna and standard 9-pin connector for quick plug-and-play installation for most heavy equipment. Track equipment hours, create geofences on fixed locations, see equipment fault codes in real time, and get alerts to abnormal engine startup times to prevent theft or misuse.
HE units feature an internal backup battery that notifies you if the device is disconnected from the equipment, as well as a store-and-forward data function that maintains data when traveling out of cellular coverage and reports it once coverage has resumed.
