ATLAS C500-lite

pTrac-Lite is a battery-operated asset tracking product designed for reliable, multi-year deployments. It is an ideal solution for managing assets that will be deployed for long periods without maintenance needs.

Competitive Price, Competitive Technology, Competitive Edge

The sealed pTrac-Lite high-value tracking unit features a small size, superior GPS performance and replaceable AA Alkaline batteries. The pTrac-Lite is a complete asset tracking and communications device incorporating next-generation, super-sensitive GPS technology on GSM/GPRS, CDMA 1xRTT and HSPA cellular networks for installation inside any mobile asset. Superior internal antennas for both cellular and GPS eliminate the need for wired antennas and make the pTracLite mountable virtually anywhere for easy, inexpensive installations. Messages are transported across the cellular network using enhanced SMS or UDP messaging providing a reliable communications link between the device and your application servers. The pTrac-Lite is designed to dramatically reduce cost and size while significantly improving field reliability.



The pTrac-Lite employs an industry leading on-board alert engine, PEG (Programmable Event Generator). This advanced engine monitors external conditions and supports customer-defined exception-based rules to help meet the needs of your application. PEG continuously monitors the vehicle environment and responds instantaneously to pre-defined threshold conditions related to time, date, motion, location, geo-zone, input and other event combinations. With PEG, your unique application will meet demanding customer requirements. This behavior can be programmed by CalAmp before shipment, at a customer’s facility, or over-the-air once the unit has been fielded.



The pTrac-Lite also leverages an industry leading over-the-air device management and maintenance system, PULS (Programming, Updates, and Logistics System). Configuration parameters, PEG rules and firmware can all be updated over the air. PULS offers out-of-the-box, hands-free configuration and automatic post-installation upgrades. You can also monitor unit health status across your customers’ fleets to quickly identify issues before they become expensive problems
