InnoTrans 2018: SAVVY® digitises rail, overseas, and hazardous goods transports with high tech ATEX-Portfolio
SAVVY® presents innovations for connecting and optimising logistics processes
Schaffhausen, Switzerland, 06th June 2018 +++ SAVVY® Telematic Systems AG (www.savvy-telematics.com), a leading specialist for highly developed telematics system solutions and granddaughter company of SDAX-listed INDUS Holding AG, will present several innovations for a modern and digitised logistics at InnoTrans 2018. At the SAVVY® booth (Hall 4.1, Booth 211; 18-21 September, Berlin), visitors can inform themselves, among other things, about the new developments surrounding the SAVVY® Synergy Enterprise Portal. The award-winning SAVVY® Synergy Portal combines management, collaboration, and business intelligence functions for managing logistics requirements company-wide.
SAVVY is presenting three innovative ATEX-certified telematics devices: the solar-powered, energy harvesting SAVVY® CargoTrac-SOL, the SAVVY® CargoTrac-ExR, equipped with an IEEE802.15.4 wireless transceiver, and the SAVVY® Sense Gateway-ExR, which provides four connection options regardless of ATEX sensor manufacturer. SAVVY® Sense Gateway communicates wirelessly with the telematics devices.
SAVVY ATEX-certified telematics units offer performance and lifecycles that exceed industry standards by a wide margin and make it possible for hazardous goods logistics companies to take advantage of all of the possibilities offered by digital process optimisation. SAVVY’s cutting-edge telematics devices are guaranteed to be autonomous and absolutely maintenance-free throughout their entire lifecycle of up to 15 years – even under the harshest possible conditions.
By using SAVVY technology, transport logistics companies have access to optimum transport means and unit traceability, can automate administrative processes, increase transport process productivity and develop new, value-added services for customers or related business areas.
SAVVY® Synergy Enterprise – Transparency and Connection The cloud-based SAVVY® Synergy Enterprise Portal not only makes logistics processes transparent, it also offers comprehensive opportunities for collaborating to quickly exchange information and facilitates coordination and agreement with all stakeholders. In addition, there are high-performance business intelligence tools that enable fast business process analyses and actionable forecasts. Based on this, transport logistics processes and related business areas can be digitally connected and optimised with precision.
SAVVY® CargoTrac-ExR – data-driven process optimisation for hazardous goods logistics SAVVY CargoTrac-ExR is approved for Zone 1 (gas, dust) hazardous areas and is suited for a wide range of transport units: containers, IBCs, freight wagons of all types, and rail tank wagons. An internal acceleration sensor reliably detects shocks, blows, vibrations, and accelerations within a range of ±8g. In addition, an integrated GNSS receiver ensures that positioning is accurate by up to 2m. All current satellite systems such as GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, OZSS, and SBAS, are supported. No external antenna connections are necessary because all antennas are integrated into the device.
CargoTrac-ExR also offers another innovative feature: external sensors can also be connected via a 2.4GHz ZigBee wireless interface. There is also a sensor gateway with encrypted data transmission.
SAVVY® Sense Gateway-ExR, designed for hazardous Zone 0 and Zone 20, offers four connection options regardless of ATEX sensor manufacturer to monitor temperature, pressure, fill levels or locking mechanisms. Two internal temperature sensors detect the environment and operating temperature; in addition a reed switch can detect external changes (e.g. door opening, gateway removal, lever position etc.) via a magnet. The SAVVY CargoTrac-ExR offers a scalable system solution, enabling hazardous goods logistics companies to connect, monitor, and agilely manage their business processes in a digital form, not only to achieve highest possible transport, circulation and storage productivity but also to increase added value with new, customer-oriented services.
Manufacturer-independent data exchange
SAVVY® supports both the ITSS standard interface between server-side telematics applications (regardless of provider) and the end customer’s IT environment. SAVVY® devices communicate wirelessly and are “ITSS2-ready”for the future manufacturer interoperable TIS/ITSS wireless standard. This ensures manufacturer-independent data exchange at all times. Special software that consolidates different telematics manufacturers and brings them together in a separate portal is therefore a thing of the past – say hello to independence, say hello to digitalisation 4.0!
