Long-life and ultra-rugged battery-powered GPS device for global asset tracking applications
- Track Anywhere – Cellular 4G Cat 1bis with 2G fallback enables seamless global asset tracking and management
- Deploy-Once Battery Life – 8+ years on 3 x AA user-replaceable batteries with ‘battery low’ and ‘battery critical’ alerts
- Adaptive Tracking Technology – Tracks assets when they’re on the move and enters sleep mode when stationary to conserve energy
- Ultra-Rugged – Waterproof and rugged IP68 Housing
Ublox LENA R8 Modem operates on all major global 4G Cat 1bis and 2G bands
Supported 4G Cat 1bis bands:
|SIM Size & Access
|Internal Nano 4FF SIM
|Concurrent GPS/QZSS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou
|-148 dBm cold start / -159 dBm hot start
|~1m CEP, GPS, -130 dBm
|GNSS 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
*Positioning accuracy specifications are provided by the GNSS supplier and reflect ideal conditions. Device configuration, installation, environmental conditions, augmentation services, and many other factors may lead to variations in positioning accuracy.
|4 – 16 V DC
*Average current in lowest power configuration
|Reverse Polarity Protection
|3 x AA. Batteries not included.
|Supported Battery Types
|Lithium (LiFeS2) or Lithium Thionyl Chloride (LTC)
*Please dispose of Lithium batteries in a safe and responsible manner
|*Battery Life Estimates
|Once Daily location updates – 8+ years
Movement-Based location updates – 4 years
Hourly location updates – 1.5 years
*Pending full energy profiling. Battery life estimates are influenced by several factors including temperature, installation and orientation of the device, the frequency of location updates, network coverage, sensor integrations, peripherals, accelerometer settings, and more.
MECHANICS / DESIGN
|108 x 86 x 30 mm (4.25 x 3.39 x 1.18″)
|Non-branded housing for optional white-labeling
|Ultra-rugged and waterproof IP68 housing ensures the device 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 – For operation in extreme temperatures use LTC Batteries
|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 29 days of continuous 30-second 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
|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.
|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 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
|Keeps a count of the number of rotations of the device about the Z axis
|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
|Define a range of angles that constitutes a ‘tipped’ state and configure alerts
|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 Device Manager 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.
