(QUAKE), a leading provider of IoT and M2M solutions to global markets, announced the launch of a Locator product family for Caterpillar, a leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, natural gas engines, and industrial gas turbines. This self-contained product is designed to remotely monitor non-powered assets worldwide while operating in extreme conditions.
Designed to have a multi-year battery life in a compact package, the Locator device enables wide usage and broad installation options. The Locator’s two-way communication over satellite or terrestrial networks increases the accuracy of GPS asset location and utilization in industrial, construction, and military environments. The “slap and track” technology is an ideal and flexible solution for oil and gas, mining, and construction asset detection. With the ability to connect assets including non-powered tools and equipment, control inventory of remote sites, and improve return of investments, the Locator product is the perfect addition to the IoT world.

Quake Global is very proud to work with Caterpillar on this product. It is rewarding to be able to bring something this powerful to the M2M market,” stated Polina Braunstein, President and CEO of Quake Global.
