The Main Device

The X-Rayl Solar Pointer S3 is a solar powered, patented tracking device that was developed for use in rail freight applications.

With its integrated global LTE- and GNSS-modules the Pointer S3 can collect and transmit positional and sensor data worldwide. Thanks to the sophisticated power saving concept, the large solar panel and the integrated energy storage the Pointer S3 can operate self-sustained and maintenance-free even in areas where no ordinary power supply is available.

The Pointer S3 can be connected to wireless sensors via the integrated Bluetooth module (ITSS IF2 BLE) which allows for easy extension of the device capabilities through a multitude of sensors. All data gathered by the Pointer S3 is encrypted and transmitted to the high-availability back-end, where it can be monitored and analysed through the X-Rayl DOT-Link platform or sent to external systems through a multitude of interfaces.

Since the Pointer S3 is certified according to the highest ATEX and IECEx standards available on the market today, it is possible to use the device even under sensitive conditions such as the transport of chemicals.

The Pointer S3 is available in two designs Cast (dark colour) and Milled (silver colour). The specification for both designs are identical except for weight and dimensions which vary insignificantly.
