Frequently asked questions on the modules

  • Install the box with magnet or tape, depending on the model
  • Determine the position of the vehicle or machine.
  • Secure data transmission with the fastest network.
  • Registration on the Web portal

The GPS receiver uses EGNOS correction signals, and can achieve a precision of 1 to 3 meters with sufficient satellite reception. Since the receiver works with even a minimal number of satellites, which is necessary in machine shops, for instance, deviations may increase to approx. 100 meters. This is not a system error, but rather reflects the poor reception of the satellite signal.

The SIM card installed in the Ceres Protect Box is designed to work on a specific mobile network, e.g. the box automatically selects the right national network. In general, it can be used in Europe, the USA and Turkey. This allows you to track and secure your vehicle even from abroad.

  • Depending on the module: 306 € or 406 € (one time)
  • Wireless contract: from 5.90 € (per month)
  • Text message function optional: from 3.90 € (per month)

Purchase a CERES Protect Box for a one-time fee, depending on model, or 339 EUR or 406 EUR.

To use the tracking device with the SIM module, you will need a wireless contract, regulated by the Ilgenfritz Mechatronics GmbH. This allows you to transfer location data to an Ilgenfritz Mechatronics server from third party providers via mobile networks. You can use your location data on this server through the Web portal set up for this purpose under customer login.

 

Reference to the GTCs

The wireless contract has a minimum term of 12 months (cf. 9 GTC). A monthly base fee of 5.90 EUR is charged for use of the services (cf. 7.1 GTC). If you do not need a device for a certain period, you can pause the contract term for a maximum of 6 months per device, per contractual year. A reduced fee of just 1.99 EUR will be charged (cf. 7.6 GTC).

 

You can change your options free of charge at the end of the month any time during the term of your wireless contract (cf. 7.4 and 7.6 GTC).

 

Determine the best transmission interval and the right rate for you by answering the following questions:

(A) Do you need lane-specific tracking? If so, then you will need a higher transmission interval frequency.

(B) Do you need theft protection? If so, lower transmission interval frequencies may be sufficient for your tracking needs.

Alarm notification

As a standard feature, you will receive the alarm notifications you configure from your device via e-mail. Example alarm notifications:

  • Vehicle is moving outside of the defined geographic region (geozone)
  • Device reports shocks, low battery level, power outage, motor ignition

Text message function optional

In addition, you have the option of receiving alarm notifications on your cell phone or smartphone by text message. The advantage of this feature is that you can receive a text message anywhere and any time, as long as you have reception, in contrast to e-mail, which requires a stable internet connection. In addition, you do not need a smartphone to receive text messages. Instead, any mobile phone can receive text alarm messages. This is why we offer the text message option with attractive conditions.
