The CommTracker-605 (CT605) is a rugged, low-cost computer and communication device for tracking the location and condition of cargo and fleets. With a sealed case and small footprint, it can provide distance and speed traveled, alarm conditions, and J1708 vehicle information.

The CT605 open architecture platform makes it easy to program using industry standard tools (Microcross GNU X-Tools). It incorporates a powerful ARM-based processor with multiple communication ports and digital inputs and outputs. It's capable of taking data, making decisions and communicating with external devices such as: driver terminals, satellite transceivers, and radio modems.

An integrated UPS (optional) will sustain operation during short power interruptions. A power supply sensing input provides time for the application to store critical for a clean shut down.

The CT605 is configurable to your individual needs. It can include GPS and GSM/GPRS or CDMA 1xRTT. Contact Dyacon so we can configure a CommTracker-605 for you.
