Telit and WH Electronics Unveil Cost-Effective Tracking Solution

By Carolyn J Dawson March 16, 2012

WH Electronics Inc.’s AirLoom personal tracker has been incorporated with Telit Wireless Solutions’ HE910 to create the tiniest pentaband HSPA+ M2M unit available in the world. Users of M2M applications will now be able to implement AirLoom, a small, flexible tracking tool, incorporated with cellular and GPS, as a cost-effective offering for tracking people, pets, personal belongings and commercial possessions. WH Electronics will be offering AirLoom as a pay-as-you-go data service plan, thereby eliminating any service contracts.

In a release, Waldek Hupa, President of WH Electronics said, "We faced the design challenge of selecting hardware that offered high functionality and minimal battery drain. By embedding the Telit HE910 module in our AirLoom, we are able to deliver a power-efficient, reliable and accurate tracking device that consumers and commercial adopters can leverage for a wide range of remote monitoring solutions."

The HE910, which measures seven centimeters by four centimeters by one centimeter, allows AirLoom to be rapidly attached to any person or possession in a simplified manner. The settings of AirLoom, which features a USB plug for charging, can be custom designed by the users. The users can define alerts and other parameters like the geofencing radius. AirLoom also features a website, where users can define broadcast periods and track wireless credit usage.

Mike Ueland, Senior VP and General Manager for Telit Wireless North America, said, "Often, the most expensive element of an M2M application over time is the data transmission service, which can present an obstacle for widespread adoption of the technology. The AirLoom tracker is a prime example of an affordable hardware solution coupled with an equally cost-effective service model, allowing anyone to watch over and protect their loved ones and belongings."

A 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.2mm LGA package is featured by all of the regional and network versions of Telit’s xE910 family, including the HE910. The incorporated solutions can therefore gain on space and weight, resulting in decreased expenses for high-volume applications and transportable devices.
