Before you begin
Read this entire guide before starting to remove a non-powered asset tracker to ensure a smooth process.
Gather your tools
Depending on the asset type, you may need the following tools:
- Work light
- Driver bits and socket set
- Diagonal wire cutters (no scissors)
Prepare the asset
Non-powered asset trackers rely exclusively on their own power and do not have any external wiring. They are used on mobile assets that either don't have accessible power or have an unreliable power source. In general, non-powered assets are more stationary in use than powered assets. They include generators, compressors, light towers, boom lifts, large storage containers, skip bins, sand bins, pumps, portable toilets, specialty tanks, frac tanks, and parked trailers.
- Move the asset to a suitable location for the removal.
- Note any obvious signs of damage and report it to the contact person.
Step 1: Locate and access the non-powered asset tracker
- Locate the non-powered asset tracker on the asset.
A non-powered asset tracker is usually on the outside of the asset, with a direct line of sight to the sky.
On parked trailers, the non-powered asset tracker is usually on the trailer tongue, the hitch rail, the side rails, or the front bulkhead.
- Remove all screws that secure the powered asset tracker in place.
- If present, remove the mounting bead of silicone from between the non-powered asset tracker and the mounting surface.
Step 2: Restore the asset
Restore the asset back to its original condition as follows:
- Replace all panels that were removed, and ensure they are seated properly.
- Ensure all excess silicone is removed.
- Check the general area for screws, wire scraps and tools.
Step 3: Record the device and asset information
The non-powered asset tracker can later be identified by the serial number.
- Record the non-powered asset tracker serial number within Reveal.
The serial number is on the back of the device (see image below).
- Record the details of the from which you removed the non-powered asset tracker.
- Contact Support if necessary to register removal of the non-powered asset tracker.
Step 4: Return equipment
- Return any keys to the customer.
Identify equipment to be returned to the customer if applicable.
- Professional installers: inform the customer of equipment to be returned.
