Global Positioning System for Construction Fleet Managers

Navman Wireless' new Qtanium 300 Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking device enables construction fleet managers to monitor all vehicles–both on-road and off-road–in one interface.

The Qtanium 300 is a military-grade GPS tracking device for all makes and models of off-road construction equipment that is designed for use with the company's OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking and management system. Engineered and built from the ground up to operate in extreme off-road conditions, the unit's integration with OnlineAVL2 is cited to make Navman Wireless the largest global provider to offer on- and off-road vehicle tracking from a single interface.

With the Qtanium 300, users can not only see the real-time location of both on- and off-road fleet vehicles merged on the same map to provide a complete picture of fleet deployment, but also utilize new OnlineAVL2 capabilities to simplify and strengthen fleet oversight and management.

Thermal Imaging Cameras are Lightweight

Ergonomically lightweight by design, the rugged FLIR i5 and i7 infrared cameras offer high infrared image quality with 2 percent thermal accuracy, a large 2.8-inch color display, and 80x80 pixel resolution on the FLIR i5 or a RESNET-compliant 120x120 pixel resolution on the FLIR i7.

The FLIR i5 offers a center-spot measurement mode and, for extensive analysis of job sites, the FLIR i7 adds two measurement modes: area (minimum/maximum), and isotherm (above/below).

Both cameras capture infrared images in FLIR's patented radiometric JPEG format, which permits users to rely on only one image file for both temperature analysis and reporting–as well as for easy sharing in emails, MSWord documents, etc.

Utility Cable and Pipe Locators

Radiodetection's RD7000 and RD8000 cable and pipe locators are used by utility companies to help install, protect and maintain infrastructure networks. The ergonomic features of the RD7000 and RD8000 provide operators with lightweight, energy efficient and well-balanced tools.

The RD7000 and RD8000 are 28 percent lighter than the RD4000, which encourages extended use. The receiver and transmitter feature a large, high contrast, backlit LCD screen that provides the users with clear information in any light conditions. The intuitive and responsive interface is designed so the operator can assess any feature with ease. A self-explanatory icon set on the keypad is consistent on both the transmitter and receiver.

In addition to their light weight and form, the RD7000 and RD8000 retain the environmental durability associated with an IP54 rating, which ensures it can be used in many demanding environments.

MAG Docking Station Line Expanded

Gamber-Johnson, an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting, announces the expansion of its MAG docking station line to include a new docking station for the Panasonic Toughbook 31 computer.

The new MAG 31 Dock is constructed from a magnesium shell, which enhances its overall look and performance. Similar to the MAG 30 docking station, the MAG 31 Dock includes the simplified front-facing docking mechanism, which allows easy one-handed docking and undocking of the computer; insert the computer into the docking station and pull the front handle to the left to dock the computer. To undock, simply push the key lock button to release and undock the computer. All Gamber-Johnson docking stations come with a standard key lock for added security.

The MAG 31 Dock has passed vibration testing standard MIL-STD-810G and has undergone extensive cycle testing on the latch and docking mechanisms.


Transportable Fuel Tanks are DOT Approved

Offering a high level of environmental compliance, Transcube's line of transportable fuel tanks are DOT approved for road transportation and UL 142 Certified for safe diesel fuel storage. The double-walled tanks provide 110 percent secondary containment of the inner container's total capacity to eliminate the risk of spills and contamination, making them very useful for equipment and power rental fleets, fuel suppliers and end users.

Internally baffled to prevent the surge of fuel during transport, Transcube tanks have DOT approval for transportation of diesel fuel, unlike traditional fuel tanks that are not designed for traveling on the road. This allows the units to be deployed to remote locations while full of fuel, as well as the ability to be removed from a site with fuel still inside.

Models include the 05TCG, 10TCG, 20TCG and 30TCG, offering capacities of 132, 264, 528 and 792 gallons, respectively. To eliminate the risk of accidental spillage, the tanks have no bottom or side exterior outlets.
