Aercept PLUS Assures Continued Operation Even if the Vehicle’s Battery has been Disabled or
CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has introduced the Aercept PLUS tamper-resistant vehicle tracking product offering for the vehicle finance market.
The Aercept PLUS line includes a tamper-resistant, internal back-up battery, along with low-battery warning and power interrupt notification features. This combination lets the customer know when the vehicle’s battery has been disabled or the CalAmp tracker has been disconnected.
The PLUS offering incorporates CalAmp’s super-sensitive, 50-channel GPS satellite tracking technology and a robust GSM cellular modem for wireless data communications. The compact tracker features a 700 mAh internal battery for extended field life and eliminates the need for a separate, external back-up battery. With internal GPS and GSM antennas, the PLUS hardware is both quick to install and easy to conceal. All hardware is built to US Military standards for shock and vibration.
Aercept PLUS is a total-solution package that includes online vehicle tracking and account management via a secure, password-protected Web site. Special software allows users to monitor and control the status of their vehicles, issue payment reminders, track the vehicle’s location on digital street maps and disable the starter to initiate recovery. Customers include vehicle finance companies, buy-here-pay-here automobile dealers, vehicle rental companies and fleet owner/operators.
“This high-value tracking solution expands the capability of our Aercept offering for auto lenders and dealers, providing them an even more secure option for safe-guarding their mobile assets. Aercept PLUS is the tamper-resistant answer to knowing where your vehicles are at all times,” notes Kevin Christensen, CalAmp Telemetric Systems senior director of business development and marketing.
