iMETOS Tracker

Who knows the current location of all your farm assets? Metos knows.

iMETOS Tracker

iMETOS brings you two automatic tracking devices: iMETOS Object Tracker for tracking non-powered objects and iMETOS Active Tracker for tracking self-propelled vehicles and farm machinery.

VERSATILE TRACKING DEVICES FOR FARM EQUIPMENT AND OTHER IMPORTANT ASSETS.

There are a lot of moving parts on a farm operation, and iMETOS Tracker makes keeping track of your assets easy and economical. Chose from two devices – or put both to work – to make sure you have a handle on the whereabouts of your farm vehicles, equipment and more.

iMETOS Object Tracker is an automatic tracking system used on non-powered objects like important farm implements, livestock waterers and other rarely used or moved farm assets. It doesn’t need a permanent power supply, can be mounted on any object and the battery allows for at least 2000 position transmissions. The Object Tracker continuously checks the GPS position only while it’s moving to optimize power consumption. When movement stops for more than a minute plus two consequent GPS readings log the same position, Object Tracker detects a ‘permanent’ location and sends the location data to the FieldClimate platform.

iMETOS Active Tracker is an automatic tracking system used on self-propelled vehicles and farm equipment like trucks, tractors or combines. The Active Tracker must be connected to the machine’s power supply to operate. Logging a GPS position every 5 seconds and transferring the data to FieldClimate every 30 seconds, you get a detailed activity report that lets you know exactly where, when and how much your equipment has been running. You can also set ‘invisible geo-fences’ and alerts to protect against theft of your assets.

KEY BENEFITS

With an iMETOS Tracker, you receive important and actionable information when it happens, so delays and challenges are managed more efficiently. It’s low entry cost means you’ll quickly realize your return on investment with immediate access to valuable information.
