Mesh Technology


Mesh technology allows customers to receive a complete view of their equipment at a lower cost, all while increasing productivity and visibility of assets.

MeshRF sensors are installed on equipment and pass data along, similar to a bucket brigade, to a solar-powered access point unit (AP), which contains a modem.

The access point then uploads data to secure servers and on-screen where you can view moving sensors in real-time on a satellite image or stationary sensors on a map. With MeshRF sensor technology, you can monitor:

  • Any non-powered or powered, moving or stationary object
  • Crew members
  • Locomotives
  • Rail cars
  • Trucks
  • Containers

Mesh Technology creates a network with hundreds of reporting points at a lower operating expense. This self-governing communication automatically maintains the best reporting route for each sensor. If a mesh sensor is removed or destroyed, the units will automatically re-route to maintain data flow.

Mesh RF sensors don’t require battery replacement thanks to the integrated solar panel on each unit. With our self-charging patented power system, sensors can report day or night and deliver more messages, enhancing product longevity.

Easy to install or transfer, the Lat-Lon Mesh RF Sensors are self-contained units and require no special tools.
