LITTLETON, Colorado—May 6, 2022—PassTime®, a leading provider of GPS Solutions, announced today the launch of Encore 3, the third generation of the Encore platform which has revolutionized the asset tracking market since its debut.
This third generation of Encore builds upon the revolutionary device platform that was first introduced in 2019 with the first version of Encore. The platform is renowned for its cutting-edge technologies: delivering performance, features and extensive battery life in a small form factor not previously seen in the market.
In addition to the enhancements and improvements achieved through previous Encore generations, Encore 3 features technology advancements with new, improved GNSS (GPS plus others) for better satellite location accuracy and performance, giving customers even better ability to locate mobile assets. Encore’s components are specifically selected and designed to achieve extremely low power-consumption, resulting in the ability to attain several years of battery life, in a compact design. With the ability to select and switch between four different power modes, customers can choose the features and reporting frequency they desire while balancing the battery life options that meet their business objectives.
While the Encore platform is completely self-powered, offering customers the ability to place an Encore device on an endless number of mobile assets within seconds, if asset power is available, Encore has an optional, external power cable that enhance the device’s functionality even further. Encore 3 features an updated, modern USB-C connector design for this optional external cable, for improved ease of use and connectivity.
