Basing on the results of testing, the Assetlink ARZ tracker, which is an Iridium/GPS device based on the Iridium 9602 modem for transmission of the service equipment coordinates and telematics data via SBD.
The ARZ will be used for tracking of various types of the oil field equipment, which is used for production, maintenance, repair and other purposes. The tracker ensures the following:
