|SPIDERTRACKS KEYPAD (753-8000)
The spider tracking device is a compact, self-contained unit,
integrating a GPS receiver and transmitter in one small unit without
the need for external antenna. It sits on the dashboard of your vehicle
or aircraft in its own mount, with a view of the sky, and requires only
a 10-32V DC power supply to operate. The spider is supplied with a
cigarette lighter plug for easy connection or it can be hard wired into
the vehicle or aircraft if you prefer.
The simple spidertracks keypad enables pilots or drivers to take more
control of their tracking during flight. The keypad has three buttons –
Monitor, Radius and Mark.
travelling in difficult or adverse conditions pilots or drivers can
tell the system to actively monitor the flight or journey.
the system does not receive three position updates in a row, and the
monitoring of the flight has not been discontinued, it automatically
assumes the aircraft or vehicle needs assistance and will send TXT and
email messages to a nominated group of receivers, that could include
- Messages include location coordinates,
time, flight speed and altitude details that can be referenced with
Electronic Locator Transmitter information.
- Up to four pre-programmed messages.
click could notify the operations base that the aircraft has landed
safely, two clicks could send a message that a fuel supply is required,
- The Mark is also beneficial to hunters who are required to log the location of animals culled for traceability purposes.
- Suspends reporting of coordinates while the aircraft or vehicle is operating in a known work zone.
for pilots who work safely over the same known area for long periods of
time, such as agricultural, spraying or forestry workers.
the Radius button tells the system to automatically calculate the area
of the work zone, based on a preprogrammed radius.
system automatically recognises when the aircraft or vehicle leaves the
geo-fenced work area and resumes transmission of coordinates.
- This function reduces the cost of transmission for operators working safely in the same area.
the Radius and Mark buttons at the same time acts as a panic button,
automatically changing transmission intervals to update location as
fast as possible - approximately every 30 seconds.
- At the
same time, TXT and email messages are sent to designated receivers,
which could include rescue services - so if something does go wrong the
vehicle or aircraft can be found as quickly as possible.
