SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif.— Phillips Connect Technologies (PCT) has released EZTrac and EZTrac Plus, which the company calls “no-hassle asset tracking solutions” give 24/7 visibility of a trailer or chassis fleet while only requiring minimal install time.
EZTrac is a real-time, high-performance asset tracker and concealed theft recovery device that plugs into an industry-standard ABS harness, according to Bill Ellis, PCT president.
It can be powered by either the AUX (ABS) or brake circuit and activates in two easy steps. With its IP67 sealed weatherproof enclosure and embedded STA-DRY harness, EZTrac can stand up to heavy duty transportation abuse.
Ellis said for more capability, carriers can choose the EZTrac Plus, which can transmit the location of a trailer or chassis with or without power due to its 6-month rechargeable internal battery. EZTrac Plus also offers multiple sensor connectivity through Bluetooth or a PCT branded “smart harness,” sold separately.
With EZTrac and EZTrac Plus, pinpointing the location of your trailers and chassis is instantaneous via nationwide 4G cellular LTE networks, Ellis said.
“The EZTrac family of asset tracking solutions are designed specifically for any trailer or chassis fleet by streamlining the most useful tracking information and displaying it directly on a driver’s phone, tablet or operator’s office computer. The solutions are offered at a very low cost, outperform the competition, and install in minutes,” he said. “These solutions bring the power of connected trailers within an affordable reach for the entire truck-trailer transportation market.”
EZTrac and EZTrac Plus are exclusively available in the aftermarket through Aurora Parts & Accessories, New Life Transport Parts Center, and Utility Trailer Dealers.
