OEM Data Delivery Adds RFID Tracking Device to Product Offerings


OEM Data Delivery, Shelton, Conn., has introduced a new addition to its RFID line of Service Trackers. The new ST-570-HZ is a powered active RFID tracking device that wirelessly identifies individual equipment, allowing site managers to track the location and activity of all capital assets automatically. 


The ST-570-HZ works seamlessly with any OEM GoPod data capture hub to record machine transactions of all types, such as vehicle identification, and the distribution of fuel and other service consumables. It also generates data that is critical for inventory allocation and management, and for maintenance and repair scheduling. Finally, it is one of the most powerful and versatile tools available for estimating job costs, and tracking those costs as they are incurred.  


The ST-570-HZ also incorporates two new, unique features that add value to customers: the freedom from battery change-outs, and true, "drive-by" data capture convenience. The ST-570-HZ is a powered RFID device that draws its energy from the individual machine it interfaces with, making it battery-free. "Drive-by" data capture means the ST-570-HZ automatically identifies itself to nearby superintendent, fuel, and/or service vehicles equipped with any type of GoPOD System.


Like the original OEM "Cube," the ST-570-HZ was engineered as part of the Service Tracker and GoPOD system to manage an entire fleet of construction, mining, rental, or other equipment without interrupting normal equipment operation. It is fully scalable, and compatible with all equipment brands and models. The ST-570-HZ was engineered for rugged, extended, outdoor service, and has a working range of -40°C to +70°C.  It is sealed and tested for dust and water resistance to IP67.


The ST-570-HZ has 8 K of program memory, and LED communications diagnostics. Information from the ST-570-HZ is immediately available; data uploads into any major back-office system and integrates seamlessly with accounting software. Reports are generated nightly and delivered via email and secure web reports.  It is covered by a two-year warranty. 


Installation of ST-570-HZ units averages just 15 minutes per equipment unit; training is equally simple.
