The Guppy is a compact, rugged Bluetooth Tag perfect for low-cost monitoring of assets. The Guppy Bluetooth integrates with other Digital Matter devices that support Bluetooth, or they can be used with your own Bluetooth mobile applications.

The Guppy runs off just 2 x AAA batteries for up to 5 years, and does not require a SIM or data plan. It can be readily attached to almost anything to provide low cost asset location. It is particularly useful for low value or smaller assets where it may not make commercial sense to attach a more robust (and expensive) device.



The Guppy will transmit a beacon signal every few seconds, broadcasting: 
  • Device Serial Number
  • Digital Matter Manufactuer Code
  • Battery Voltage
  • Transmit Power (to be used with RSSI for range estimates)
  • Temperature

BLUETOOTH 5.0

  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is an affordable solution for tracking both high and low-value assets
  • Bluetooth Tags are perfect for tracking tools, smaller equipment, or any mid-sized non-powered asset where a larger (and expensive) device does not make commercial sense
  • Track inventory as you sell, manufacture and restock across multiple warehouse locations
  • Cold Chain Management / Other Sensor Monitoring
  • Bin Location Tracking
  • Smart Farming / Agtech Applications

 

Estimating range and battery life of Guppy

The range between our Guppy Bluetooth tag and a Bluetooth gateway is anywhere from over 450m down to less than 200m.

The range of the Guppy tag can be adjusted by configuring the device’s Receiver Sensitivity and Transmit Power.

Several important factors such as Radio Spectrum, PHY, Receiver Sensitivity, Transmit Power and more influence Bluetooth range and subsequently, device battery life.
 

WEATHERPROOF & RUGGED HOUSING

  • Waterproof and dust resistant IP67 rated housing ensures device can withstand fine dust, high pressure spray, submersion for 30 mins in 1 metre of water, and extreme temperatures.
  • Engineered with UV resistant polycarbonate and new ultra-rugged nylon glass available for superior strength.

TRACK & monitor remotely

Device management is simple with our OTA Device Management Server and Telematics Guru Tracking Software.

Remotely monitor all of your assets in one place, on desktop or via our mobile app. The Remora2's Coulomb Counter also enables Accurate Battery Life Predictions and Alerts.

Already have tracking software or an ERP? Our devices also integrate with existing platforms.
 
  • Hardware Features


    Low-profile IP67 rugged housing

    The IP67 rated housing is made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic to survive bumps and knocks and to survive many years in the sun and weather. UV stable and rugged

    Dimensions:

    L 80 x W 40 x H 18mm


    Batteries

    Up to 5 years on 2 x AAs!

    2 x standard “AAA” size batteries which provide a balance between size and capacity. Low-cost off-the-shelf alkaline batteries can be used or for applications that require extreme temperature or extra long-life we recommend that off-the-shelf 1.5V lithium batteries are used. These are readily available from retail outlets, for example Energizer Ulitmate Lithium.


    Operating Temperature

    -20°C to +60°C
    For operation in extreme temperatures, the device must be fitted with lithium batteries.

    BLE

    BLE 4.2 as standard
    BLE 5 Optional (subject to MOQ)

    Range

    BLE 4.2 - up to 100m
    Option for BLE 5 - Up to 500m (+19dBm option) - subject to MOQ


    3 axis accelerometer

    Optional 3D accelerometer for movement detection and alerting (special factory run required) Not fitted as standard.
