The next generation Remora is here - supercharged and more powerful than ever.

The Remora2 is an IP67 rated, rugged 4G Cat-M1/Nb-IoT GPS device designed for tracking non-powered assets where super-long battery life is required without sacrificing the frequency of updates and accuracy performance.

Convenient mounting holes make it easy to mount the Remora in the corrugation for container tracking, or conceal on the underside of a trailer.

The Remora2 is powered by 2 x D Cell Lithium Thionyl Chloride (LTC) batteries for super long battery life. LTC batteries also offer continued operation in extreme temperatures.

The Remora 2 is PACKED with technology and features to provide superior tracking performance.
 
  • Up to 10 years of battery life at once daily GPS location and 5 years once hourly
  • IP67 Rugged weather-proof housing
  • Bluetooth v5
  • Battery Meter
  • Magnetic Tamper detect
  • Easy installation

4G Cat-M1/Nb-IoT Modem

The Remora 2's 4G modem is compatible with both Cat-M1 and Nb-IoT networks - enabling great new benefits. Traditional cellular network specifications (like 4G LTE Cat 9/12) are designed to provide high speeds and bandwith - to enable smartphone users to stream videos and facilitate other data-intensive activities.

IoT devices don't need this type of bandwidth and are typically trying to solve other problems. These IoT devices require
  • Small data messages typically at low data rates
  • Long Range
  • Low power to allow for long battery life
  • Low cost - to facilitate the deployment of many millions of them
The LTE Cat-M1 and NB1 specifications allow the cellular modem (uBlox SARA R4) to be simpler and smaller. In our testing we have measured that our new Cat-M1 devices use anywhere from 1/2 to 1/3 of the power of our 3G devices to perform a data upload. The combination of this technology and the LTC Batteries yields SUPER-LONG battery life. Up to 90 000 uploads, or 10 years once hourly updates!

LTC Batteries

The Remora 2 is powered by Lithium Thionyl Chloride (LTC) batteries. These batteries help achieve the optimum performance due to the following reasons:
  • Higher quality out of the box, meaning less chance of early failures compared to Alkalines
  • Extended temperature tolerance, operating temperatures of -40°C to +85°C are typical
  • High Capacity - meaning many years of operation
  • Extremely low self discharge - typically around 1%

Battery Meter

The Remora 2 is fitted with a Coulomb Counter which tracks the devices energy consumption. It is hard to predict the battery life of LTC batteries due to their flat discharge curve, so the Battery Meter enables an accurate battery level to be determined, enabling the following:
  • Accurate Low Battery Alerts - Alerts can be set at any level which provides enough time for new batteries to be fitted.
  • Battery Life Predictions - The Remora 2 can simply be deployed in the application with the desired settings for a short time (a week or so). The energy usage over this time can be determined, and from there battery life can predicted accurately - no more guesswork!

Bluetooth Gateway

The Remora 2 is equipped with a Bluetooth v5 module, enabling it to act as a Bluetooth Gateway. Low-cost Bluetooth tags can be fitted to low value assets. This opens up many low-cost tracking solutions.

For example a business with 2 work sites could place a Remora 2 at each, and Bluetooth tags on their pallets/stock/tools. The site the assets are located can be determined by which Remora the Bluetooth tags report to.

Tamper Detect


The Remora 2 housing is built with a recess on it's underside. This enables a magnet to be attached to the asset, and the Remora 2 place over this magnet. When the Remora 2 is removed from the asset - the change in magnetic field is detected and an alert is sent to the server. Giving you peace of mind that your asset is protected.
