The new GPS Series includes the BlueTree 5200 CDMA and the BlueTree 5400 GPRS for use over the cellular CDMA/1xRTT (800/1900Mhz) and GSM/GPRS (850/1900Mhz) data networks respectively.
One feature allows the modem to send the GPS position of the modem over the wireless network to a host server and as well as to a mobile computer that is attached to the modem with off-the-shelf or custom mapping software.
Another interesting feature is providing standalone GPS capability, which leverages the embedded intelligence and programming capabilities of the modem to collect, store and forward GPS position data, without the need to attach a computing device. The modems can also manage the reporting of GPS data when in and out of wireless coverage to ensure customers have accurate tracking data.
BlueTree's rugged GPS Series wireless modems are designed to provide simple and reliable communications and contain an embedded, energy efficient Trimble' Lassen SQ Module receiver that supports TAIP and NMEA 0183 message protocols. This feature makes the BlueTree 5200 and BlueTree 5400 ideal for deployment in AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location), ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) as well as public safety and field service applications. Used to track the geographic location of vehicles, assets are better managed and personal safety of personnel is increased.
For use in extreme conditions, the 5000 GPS Series modems are designed to meet the special operating requirements for mobile vehicle installations in harsh environments. These rugged modems are tested by an independent laboratory to meet the MIL-STD-810F military specifications and the SAE J1455 (Society of Automotive Engineers) specifications for vibration, temperature, shock and humidity.
