The Cellocator Team
Cellocator has recently issued a beta release to the new Cello HW gen3 platform. K-Line interface was added to the CANBUS interface and now both work in parallel.
Cello-CANiQ HW variants can now extract the supported (standard) PIDs from the currently connected vehicle, through the Cello-CANiQ device to the programmer via OTA or serial. This functionality enables defining trigger logics via the CAN Editor, using proven existing parameters.
New formula calculating fuel consumption per trip (for Gasoline engine) was added. This formula was added to the existing formulas based on other vehicles' parameters.
This release encapsulates all features that were developed upon customers' requirements.
This HW variant is accompanied with a new FW version (36v - beta).
Some of the new features:
- Real-time idling based on RPM and speed
- PointerCept logic
- Enlarged CAN identifiers
- Roll over

CelloTrack Nano Quick Settings
The Cellocator programmer is the unit's Configuration Memory (CM), which is used to store different parameters that can affect the behavior of the unit, as well as communication parameters, which are necessary for proper operation of the Cellocator unit.
In order to simplify the initial setup of the CelloTrack Nano and MultiSense devices, Cellocator has created a unique programmer setup interface for rapid evaluation via a serial port. This way, within a few minutes, the customer can start communicating with the CelloTrack Nano unit and MultiSenses.
This quick programmer setup leads to the full programmer (an advanced option) for settings additional parameters upon customer requirements.

CelloTrack Container Lock for Cargo Monitoring
About our Partner
) is a Colombian-based company providing services within the logistics, supply chain information, security electronics, surveillance and telematics. Satlock was founded in 2011 and is a joint venture between two companies with over 50 years of experience in electronic security systems development, port security and surveillance services. The company is operating in more than eight countries in South and Central America through Franchises. Satlock combines in-house software platform and application development, tracking and monitoring seals in addition to trained personnel, in order to deliver turnkey container & cargo tracking with monitoring solutions. Among Satlock's customers are Falabella, Damco, Kuehne + Nagel, Panalpina and Nestlé.
When Satlock started offering their cargo monitoring services, they were looking for a reliable portable tracking unit that could withstand the harsh environment and long hours of operation that this business demands.
An electronic portable unit attached to a container, traveling for weeks through very harsh weather, vibration, blows, etc. requires an extremely robust solution.
In addition, Satlock was looking for a device with long battery life, as they needed to guarantee their customers that the devise would keep reporting at a quite high transmission rate throughout the whole trip, even for weeks in international operations, in order to ensure security to enable operational efficiency.
Satlock tested several devises for long periods of time, but most of them simply broke down after some weeks in normal operating conditions.
After many failures and lots of resources spent, the CelloTrack Container Lock proved to be the best solution available in the market. CelloTrack's IP67 standard, huge battery capacity and robust specifications made it a unique alternative for our application needs.
The CelloTrack Container Lock is an electronic robust solution based on the CelloTrack Power, offering an agile tracking and cargo monitoring for containers with almost instant installation and removal, eliminating the need to open the container and interfering with logistics operations such as authority inspections, transport, loading and unloading. It provides information on where the goods are at any given point, if there are any bottlenecks along the way and most importantly if the container doors are being opened, thanks to the advanced tampering reporting capabilities of the CelloTrack Container Lock.
The company's personnel install the CelloTrack Container Lock on the container doors and Satlock's specialized 24X7 monitoring station together with their state of the art cloud solution tools enable effective cargo tracking and monitoring to improve risk management KPI´s. The company has motorized personnel along the roads to verify and confirm any detected event. Satlock provides their customers with real-time reports regarding the cargo and gives them access to a web-based software platform where they can access statistical information about their logistics operations.
