Lustenau, Austria - IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, a pioneer in cutting-edge wireless solutions, has introduced upgraded hardware to their Terminal Tracker system, boasting an advanced Shock Sensor VSM 400. This upgraded sensor not only detects shocks and bumps (learn about unreported container damage) but also doubles as a compass.


The refreshed hardware is a leap forward in the industry, meeting the latest design standards and optimizing data capture in the field. The revamped system, customizable to meet global terminal operators' requirements, will be included in all future Terminal Tracker installations. The new VSM400 Shock Sensor is compatible with its predecessor, allowing for seamless retrofitting or expansion of existing systems.

"Our newly enhanced Shock Sensor VSM400 features more durable components and industry-standard connectors," says Marcus Pereira, Product Manager of Terminal Tracker at IDENTEC SOLUTIONS. "This positions us well for success in the coming years."

The VSM400's sensitivity can be adjusted to capture a wider or narrower range of shock events caused by collisions, bumps, or general vehicle operation. Its new compass functionality can provide essential data for vehicle monitoring services when used within a Terminal Tracker environment.

IDENTEC SOLUTIONS collaborated closely with global crane manufacturer Konecranes, a significant customer of the Shock Sensor, to develop the VSM400 for port terminal operations.
