Oyster LoRaWAN

Oyster using LoRaWAN™ Technology

Battery-Powered GPS LPWAN tracking on LoRaWAN Networks

The Oyster is a rugged, waterproof, GPS tracking device designed for tracking non-powered, exposed assets where super-long battery lif e is required on LoRaWAN networks.


  • Up to 5 years once daily location
  • Up to 2 years detailed tracking
  • IP67 water and dust proof
  • Rugged, robust and low profile
  • No install required, simply “place ‘n trace”
  • Off-the-shelf, user replaceable AA batteries
  • Switch from “locate” to “track” over-the-air
  • Battery status and low battery alert
  • Integrated accelerometer
  • Unauthorised movement alert


Mechanical Features

Low-profile IP67 rugged housing

The IP67 rated housing is made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic to survive bumps and knocks and is UV stabilised to survive many years in the sun and weather. Its low-profile makes it easier to mount in the corrugation on containers or to conceal on the underside of a trailer.

Operating temperature

-20°C to +60°C

For operation in extreme temperatures the device must be fitted with 1.5V Lithium batteries

Dimensions (mm) L 115 x W 65 x H 20
Weight 250 grams including batteries




Configuration Setup by USB Cable and OTA
LoRaWAN Regions All 868MHz and 915MHz regions supported

GPS Tracking

GPS Module

High sensitivity assisted GPS receiver, 72 channel

Antenna with LNA Boosted by low-noise amplifier (LNA) allows operation in “urban canyons” and container stacks


Sleep Current

5µA (micro-amps)


3 x AA Size 1.5V batteries – alkaline or lithium.

Alkaline – industrial type recommended. 

1.5V Lithium – longer life and wider temperature range

Recovery Mode Switch from Daily Locate to Live Tracking over-the-air
3D Accelerometer The 3 axis accelerometer allows the Oyster to “sleep” in an ultra-low power state yet still wake up when movement occurs
Adaptive Tracking Adaptive-Tracking technology enables the accelerometer and GPS data to be used intelligently to work out if it is moving and to send frequent updates, as well as to scale the update rate down to once per day if the asset is stationary in order to preserve battery life
Autonomous Aiding Data

Predicts satellite locations

Reduces the time to first fix

Improves performance in “urban canyons”

LoRaWANTM  is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated Things in a regional, national or global network.

LoRaWAN targets key requirements of Internet of Things such as secure bi-directional communication, mobility and localization services.

The LoRaWAN specification provides seamless interoperability among smart Things without the need of complex local installations and gives back the freedom to the user, developer, businesses enabling the roll out of Internet of Things.
