(Programmable Event Generator) the CalAmp LMU-3000 tracking unit is continually monitored by PEG and instantaneously responds to thresholds rules by application such as time, date, motion, location, geo-zone, input and other even combinations allowing you to meet demanding customer requirements. This behavior can be programmed before shipment or over-the-air once the unit has been fielded.

The CalAmp LMU-3000 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.
