Operating the device

This section explains how to operate the device safely.

Safety measures

  • Do not place the device inside magnetic fields or within interference from nearby electric machines. Doing so can inhibit wireless connectivity or damage the device.

  • Do not place the device in metal-containing enclosures. Doing so may inhibit or completely suppress wireless connectivity.

  • Follow the recommendations of the IEC 60215:2016 standard, “Safety requirements for radio-transmitting equipment”.

At departure

  1. Register the device with the Moeco online platform. You can also do this in advance.

  2. Switch the tracker to the active mode. To do this, press and hold the button for a few seconds.

    The light will blink green twice, stay green for a few seconds, and start indicating the battery percentage after a while. If the indication is different, e.g., red, see Troubleshooting for possible reasons.

    Once in the active mode, the tracker will connect to the Moeco platform.

  3. Fasten the tracker with rivets or bolts to a container side wall, in a channel, as you would attach a standard container vent.

    It is recommended to use 4.8 x 16 mm pop rivets.

On arrival

When the cargo arrives to destination, detach the tracker from the cargo, switch it to the storage mode using the Moeco platform, and put it into storage. Or you can leave it in the active mode and reuse it for another shipment.

Charging

You can charge the tracker using a standard USB Type-C cable. The charging port is on the back of the tracker.

After you connect the charging cable, the light on the tracker will come on. It will be indicating the current battery percentage throughout the charge:

  • Red: less than 30%

  • Yellow: 30% to 60%

  • Green: more than 60%

The tracker cannot be used while charging. All its peripherals are powered off in this mode.

Let the tracker charge for 8 to 10 hours to make sure the battery is full.
