Low-profile IP67 rugged housing
The housing screws together for easy assembly, and has 2 convenient mounting tabs. It is low-profile and light making it suitable for mounting on a collar, or placing in packages.
Dimensions: 85 mm x 63 mm x 24 mm (including mounting tabs)
Weight: 160 grams with batteries
The Yabby uses 3 x “AAA” size 1.5V alkaline or lithium batteries
Off-the-shelf 1.5V Lithium:
The Yabby should be fitted with off-the-shelf 1.5V Lithium batteries for operation in cold temperature conditions, or to offer the maximum battery life. These are readily available from retail outlets, for example Energizer Ultimate Lithium.
Battery Life with Adaptive-Tracking
The Yabby can be set to use Adaptive-Tracking technology where the accelerometer and GPS or WiFi data are used to intelligently work out if it is moving and to send frequent updates, and to scale the update rate down to once per day if the asset is stationary - to preserve battery life.
3 years @ one position per day (at 25°C).
-20°C to +60°C
For operation in extreme temperatures, the Yabby must be fitted with Lithium batteries. Batteries are affected by temperature extremes and typical performance is dependent on temperature.
(4G/GPS Version) High sensitivity GPS
- Supports concurrent GPS and GLONASS and other GNSS systems
- 72 channel high sensitivity receiver
- -167dBm industry leading tracking performance
- Optimal hot-start performance.
(4G/GPS Version) GLONASS
The Yabby uses both the GPS and GLONASS positioning systems simultaneously. This allows the device to use twice the number of satellites to get a position fix – making it faster and more accurate.
(4G/GPS Version) Low Noise GPS Amplifier (LNA)
GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA). This allows the Yabby to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal – like in a container stack!
Internal GPS and Cellular antennas tuned by the RF laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
3 Axis Accelerometer
The 3-axis accelerometer allows the Yabby to ‘sleep’ in an ultra-low power state yet still wakeup when movement occurs.
