All Set Tracking Launches New Electronic Seal
In order to meet upcoming requirements for container security, All Set Tracking has developed the ALLTrack e- Seal that will make electronic sealing easy and flexible. The completely new design takes into account the needs of ocean carriers, port operators and shippers both in terms of technical performance and cost efficiency.
The new e-Seal is permanently installed on the container and does not use the traditional door locking mechanism at all, which can continue to be sealed using a simple, wire seal in wide use today. The e-Seal uses the same ultra-low power radio "Bluetooth Lite" transmitter used in the ALLTrack Tag and Reader.
As opposed to traditional electronic seals the ALLTrack e-Seal will use a single globally available radio frequency band, which is license-free. Since the ALLTrack system uses low cost Readers, at a fraction of traditional RFID Readers, the reading infrastructure will be cost efficient to roll out. Due to its small size and high flexibility, the ALLTrack Reader could easily be connected to a standard mobile phone and thus become a "mobile" reader.
The new ALLTrack e-Seal will be installed permanently in the container, and by the door hinge a small sensor registers door-opening events.
