General Track NaBi

Monitoring without Maintenance

From Budapest, Hungary comes the NaBi. A tracking beacon that allows monitoring of assets of any kind without the need for maintenance over a long period of time. The tracker is developed by General Mechatronics, a young company specialised in IoT product development with close ties to the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. Initially, its field of activity was focusing on CNC machines and robotic control, which then gradually shifted towards IoT devices and the development of serial-produced electronic devices.

1. Background

With General Track NaBi, customers can transform their logistics into a controlled, highly efficient operation. The NaBi allows real-time information on location, temperature and motion. Its sensors enable different applications such as geolocation for automated real-time equipment tracking and security. The temperature sensor allows cold chain transportation monitoring while the built-in motion sensor detects any movements and vibration that can be used as an hour meter as well as maintenance prediction.

2. Challenge

NaBi is designed for longevity and needs to operate independently from external power sources. That is why it uses the low-power communication technology based on NB-IoT. For most applications NaBi’s lithium battery lasts for up to 5 years before it needs to be replaced. The device itself is designed to last much longer, at least for 10 years and even more. Only with these characteristics it allows the inexpensive and maintenance-free observation of inventory and logistics.

3. 1NCE Solution

With the 1NCE IoT Flat Rate that supports various cellular communication standards like 2G, 3G, 4G and NB-IoT combined in the 1NCE IoT Flex SIM card General Mechatronics has found the perfect IoT connectivity solution for their needs. For only 10 Euros General Track NaBi communicates over a period of 10 years, including 500 MB of data volume and 250 SMS. In case data usage has exceeded its limits before the time window closes, it can be easily renewed anytime for only another 10 Euros. A simple and transparent pricing model fitting perfectly into their offering.

“The General Track NaBi is designed to need as less maintenance as possible. Once attached, the NaBi is destined to function over years. We expect the same for its connectivity solution and with 1NCE we found just the right one.”
