Spireon Rolls Out New Solar Powered Telematics Product

Irvine-based vehicle telematics and tracking systems provider Spireon said today that it has launched a new product, a solar-powered product specifically being used for tracking trailers. According to Spireon, the new product is compatible with both dry vans and containers, and helps companies better track their operations. Spireon said the trailer-mounted, solar panel and telematics unit installs in under twenty minutes, and helps provide increased reliability and decreased hassle of maintenance for its customers. The system also works on trailers which have been idled and are not connected to a truck's power source, for example. Pricing on the new product was not announced.
