Convergence Systems Limited (CSL) today launched a novel plug-in module that provides the Quad Band EGSM connectivity as well as GPS location data with its CS501 GSM/GPS module.
“We are excited to offer this additional functionality to our customers. It helps users scan and sync inventory at remote sites having minimal IT infrastructure. This module fits well in our outdoor asset tracking solution set,” said Sujatha Bodapati, CEO / Founder assetpulse www.assetpulse.com.
“We have been working on cross-over accessories that will extend the utility of our award winning CS101 hand held reader. Now, we can provide users truly real time data capture and global asset location at an affordable cost”, said Jerry Garrett, Managing Director of CSL.
The CS501 module is IP65 rated and has a Quad Band EGSM/GPRS with integrated GPS. CSL’s suggested manufacturer’s end user price for the CS501 module is $495.00USDs.
“CSL has made real time asset visibility in remote locations easy and affordable. The CS101/CS501 combination captures the GPS location where RFID tag reads, bar code scans, keyboard, or touch-screen operations occur and then instantly communicates that information using the same technology as a mobile phone – all for around $2,800” said Lou Sirico, Founder & Host of The RFID Network www.rfid.net.
