Iridium AssetPack-3 (AP3)
The AssetPack-3 (AP3) global satellite tracker is a highly versatile, low cost of ownership two-way asset tracking and sensor monitoring solution, designed for frequent two-way communication with unpowered assets. Using the Iridium satellite network, the AP3 is a completely enclosed, self-contained, waterproof, dustproof, fully-ruggedized solution that enables pinpoint monitoring of any fixed or mobile asset anywhere on the ground, at sea, or in the air. Available in solar/line power or hard-line only options, the battery lasts the lifetime of most industrial equipment. For applications beyond GPS, it can be rapidly configured to monitor a wide range of analog and digital sensors and inputs. Its fully two-way communication capability supports over-the-air commands to change reporting behavior or manage machinery.
Solar Powered Benefits
7 to 10 years no-touch operation.
Low Battery/Device Maintenance
• Solar panel harvests solar energy to avoid costly battery maintenance
• Lithium Ion battery with option of being line powered (10-33VDC)
• Lifetime of 7-10 years before battery capacity starts to drop (but still operates) (5-7 years in Arctic climates)
• No battery change or other maintenance needed during device lifetime
Built to Withstand Extreme Climates
• Solar panel encased in hardened industrial plastic –robust to heavy impacts
• Lithium-Ion battery contained –air transport (no dangerous goods declaration)
• Power budget designed to survive Arctic nights and provide up to 15 minute mailbox checks for messages with only 3 hours of daily direct sunlight

The AssetPack™ (AP) is a durable, multi-functional device designed to provide low cost of ownership with long 10 year service life and easy installation and maintenance features.
The device is a self-contained, low profile, environmentally sealed asset gateway, powered by an energy efficient solar-rechargeable battery engineered to survive long low sun conditions and provide up to 10 years of data with zero maintenance. The AP can be mounted on almost any type of asset used in the world’s harshest conditions. Because it is intrinsically safe, it can be used in hazardous locations (HAZLOC) to track hazardous material shipments (HAZMAT) or monitor hazardous operations.
The AP features advanced memory-rich, on-board processing capabilities supporting highly configurable modes of operations, business logic, reporting rates, alert thresholds, on-board geofences and configurable IO interfaces for various sensor-based applications. Everything is configurable over the air.
The AP leverages the 100% reliable global two-way coverage of the Iridium satellite network and/or next generation cellular technology providing seamless uninterrupted connectivity and access to fixed and mobile assets anywhere.
The AP delivers actionable information that helps businesses optimize operational efficiencies and reduce cost making this device an ideal solution for tracking and managing of almost any unpowered asset such as trailers, containers, vessels.
The AP can be remotely managed through the AssetLink DeviceManager user interface or via API so that actionable information can be visualized through any AssetLink Value Added Reseller or customer data system.
