E.J. Brooks Company of Livingston, a provider of mechanical, tamper evident security seals, and System Planning, a high technology firm, have announced their plans to jointly offer satellite, GPS and cellular tracking and monitoring products to provide improved security and 24×7 visibility for cargo and other assets in transit worldwide.
The jointly offered Brooks GlobalTrak product family will include a range of asset monitoring devices equipped with a suite of sensors that communicates location, condition, and security status through variety of cell, satellite, or wireless LAN to a network communications center called the information management bureau (IMB).
Brooks GlobalTrak has been designed for rail, trucking and ocean carrier use. The system can be applied in a covert or overt manner, and will allow Brooks’ GPS ready e-seals such the ISO 17712 compliant bolt or the indicative Hyperion electronic strap seal, to be monitored electronically through the ZigBee wireless protocol. The readings will be reported through Brooks GlobalTrak to the IMB communication center where stakeholders will have real-time access to the location, security status, and condition of their shipments. The e-seal products have been cost consciously designed to utilize reusable electronics with replaceable bolts and straps.
