IP67 rated housing, UV resistant nylon glass composite.
Dimensions: 126 mm x 80 mm x 33 mm
Weight: 160 grams (complete unit)
Approximately 50mA peak, depending on battery voltage
10µA (micro-amps) with accelerometer on and other sensors off.
Absolute maximum of 45V DC, but it is not recommended to exceed 24V for thermal reasons
Trickle charge at <100mA
High temperature Lithium Polymer 800mAh battery
Battery operating time depends on operating mode
-20°C to +60°C battery discharge only
0°C to +60°C battery charge
Below 0°C the standard internal backup battery’s ability to deliver sufficient power to operate the cellular modem is reduced.
Below 0°C and above +60°C the internal backup battery will not be charged as a safety precaution due to dangers associated with charging batteries at extreme temperatures.
For battery powered tracking in extreme temperatures enquire about our Remora tracker with extended temperature range battery options.
9 pin IP67 rated connector

Low Noise GPS Amplifier
GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA). This allows the G52S to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal.
The G52S can be manufactured for specific markets around the world depending on their modem requirements

Internal GPS and cellular antennas tuned by the RF laboratories to ensure optimal performance. Having the primary antennae inside the housing makes for simple and quick installation
2 x Digital Inputs
1 x ignition line with configurable pull-up / pull-down
1 x digital input permanently pulled down (SDI-12 compatible)
1 x Digital Output
1 x switched ground digital output, easily wired up to switch external lights, relays, buzzers, sirens, motors and other devices.
The 5V output and digital input can be used as an SDI-12 interface, allowing the use of a variety of sensors. Commonly used sensors include: soil moisture probes, flow meters, humidity sensors.
3 axis accelerometer
The 3 axis accelerometer allows the G52S to detect movement and impacts. It allows the G52S to go to ‘sleep’ when not moving, resulting in extremely low standby current.
Switched 5V Output
The G52S can provide power to external peripherals via this 5V power line, allowing sensors and peripheral devices to be powered.
Maximum current: 300mA
The G52S has sufficient memory to store over 25,000 records in its flash memory. Normally the data will be sent to the server immediately but if the device is out of range then there is sufficient space to ensure that no data is lost – for many weeks of recording.
The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, firmware updates and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
