|GNSS almanac and ephemeris data for greater sensitivity and position accuracy
|Low Noise Amplifier
|GPS signals are filtered and boosted by a SAW filter and low-noise amplifier (LNA) allowing operation where other units fail
|Cell Tower Location
|Cell tower location fallback for positioning when GPS can’t get a fix
*Average current in lowest power configuration
MECHANICS / DESIGN
|Standard – 84 x 63 x 24 mm (3.31 x 2.48 x 0.94”)
Livestock Collar – 109 x 60 x 30 (4.29 x 2.36 x 1.18”)
Snap Housing (Smallest Size, not IP67 rated) – 75 x 45 x 25 mm (2.95 x 1.77 x 0.98”)
|Non-branded housing for optional white-labeling
|Ultra-rugged and waterproof IP68 and IK06-rated housing ensures the Yabby3 can withstand impact, fine dust, and brief submersion
|Compact and concealable. Multiple installation options for covertly and easily securing the device to assets with screws, bolts, cable ties, rivets, and more. Stainless steel screws provided.
|-30°C to +60°C
|3-Axis Accelerometer to detect movement, high G-force events, and more
|Diagnostic LED indicates operation status
|Store weeks of records if device is out of cellular coverage. Storage capacity for over 2 weeks of 2-minute logging.
|On-Board Speed and Heading
|Current speed and heading is reported with each position update
|The device reports internal temperature which provides an indication of ambient temperature but may not always be precise
|Auto-APN allows the device to analyze the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware
|Battery Life Monitoring
|‘Battery Low’ and ‘Battery Critical’ alert levels
|The server can use device location to create geofences and alerts if an asset enters or leaves designated locations
|Geofence Download to Device
|Geofences can be downloaded directly to the device from Telematics Guru for enhanced location-based actions and alerts. Maximum of 100 Geofences with up to 100 points per geofence.
|Configure impact-detection alerts when G-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold
|Intelligent Power Management
|Early registration abort and location scan throttling options
|Periodic or Movement-Based Tracking
|Configure parameters to send updates based on set time intervals or when movement occurs. Adaptive tracking technology detects when the device is on the move and increases the update rate, providing detail when you need it while conserving battery when stationary.
|Set reminders based on distance traveled and run hours to reduce maintenance and repair costs
|Run Hour Monitoring
|Capture run hours based on movement to understand and optimize asset utilization
|Stationary devices enter sleep mode until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage
|Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate real-time tracking for asset retrieval
|Tip Detection & Rotation Counting
|Axis angle reporting, tip detection and rotation counting (planned)
|Configure device parameters such as position update rate, movement and accelerometer settings, and more to fit any tracking application
|Device Management Platform
|Manage, monitor, configure, debug, update, and restart devices remotely from our cloud-based device management system
|Configurable with DM-Link provisioning tool
|TCP Direct or HTTPS Webhook
|Military-level AES-256 Encryption from device to OEM Server to protect the integrity and confidentiality of telematics data. Data forwarded to third-party systems is sent via HTTPS for end-to-end security.
|Two-year manufacturer’s warranty. Exclusions apply.
|LTE-M / NB-IoT – FCC, ISED, UKCA, CE, ACMA RCM, EMC, RoHS
