Watch a CNN news report
about Directed Electronics’ new stolen vehicle recovery
system, marketed across North America, which features
a customized version of CSI Wireless' Asset-Link
200 product as its core hardware!
provides the most cost-effective and feature-rich hardware
solution available today for the worldâ€™s rapidly
growing Asset Tracking, Fleet Management and Stolen
Vehicle Recovery markets.
Asset-Link™ 100 features a rugged housing,
compact design, a wide operating temperature range,
eight inputs and outputs, and proprietary configurable
technology for use with the Microburst® Control
Channel wireless network throughout North America and
parts of Central and South America.
Customers equipped with Asset-Link™ 100 can perform
many important asset-tracking and management functions
- tracking vehiclesâ€™ locations and speed;
- monitoring vehiclesâ€™ performance including
engine temperature, oil and tire pressure, brake wear,
plus other factors such as engine running hours;
- logging and analyzing performance data, including
- performing important security and stolen vehicle
recovery functions such as “geo-fencing”
(sending alerts if vehicles venture outside specified
geographic boundaries) plus door-lock and ignition
- employing potentially life-saving automatic safety
features including crash-notification, airbag deployment
notification and emergency dispatch.
Asset-Link™ 200 has all the same features
and capabilities as the Asset-Link 100, while also offering
Circuit Switched analog or Advanced Mobile Phone Services
(AMPS) capability. Whereas the Asset-Link™ 100
and its low-cost Control Channel capability are ideal
for customers needing to communicate only “exceptions,”
or small pieces of infrequent data, the Asset-Link™
200, by combining Control Channel and Circuit Switched
analog capabilities, represents an ideal solution for
customers requiring more flexibility.
They can use Control Channel for basic
control and position-reporting services, while using
Circuit Switched analog to transfer files of vehicle
history data, and to perform over-the-air maintenance
to in-vehicle hardware, without the time and expense
of returning the vehicle to the shop or sending maintenance
staff into the field.
CSI Wireless also offers a GSM-compatible version,
called the Asset-Link
