CalAmp LMU 1200The CalAmp LMU-1200 is a full-featured vehicle tracking device with built-in battery and is an economical location messaging unit using GPRS/CDMA/HSPA technology for basic fleet, stolen vehicle, automotive insurance, vehicle finance, auto rental and other vehicle tracking applications. The LMU-1200 dramatically reduces cost, power and size yet still provides high-value tracking features in a small package using superior GPS performance with a 3-axis accelerometer for motion, tilt sense, ultra-sleep modes for installation in any 12 or 24 volt vehicle with antennas for both cellular and GPS to eliminate the need for wired antennas to be mounted virtually anywhere on the vehicle.

Employing CalAmp?s industry leading on-board alert engine, PEG? (Programmable Event Generator) monitors external conditions, supports customer-defined exception based rules to meet the needs of your specific application which monitors the vehicle environment and relates to time, date, motion, location, geo-zone, input and other even combinations. This behavior can be programmed by CalAmp before shipment, at a customer?s facility, or over-the-air once the unit has been fielded.

The CalAmp LMU-1200 also leverages CalAmp’s industry leading over-the-air device management and maintenance system, PULS? (Programming, Updates, and Logistics System). Configuration parameters, PEG rules, and firmware can all be updated over the air. PULS offers out-of-the-box hands free configuration and automatic post-installation upgrades. You can also monitor unit health status across your customers’ fleets to quickly identify issues before they become expensive problems.
