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: 100 mm x 65 mm x 19 mm (excl. 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.
10uA (micro amps)
Battery Life with Adaptive-Tracking
The Yabby can be set to use Adaptive-Tracking technology where the accelerometer and GPS 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.
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.
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.
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!
The Yabby uses a high power radio transmitter / receiver that operates on LoRaWAN networks, and is available in for the various LoRaWAN frequencies around the world.
Internal GPS and LoRaWAN RF 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.
The Yabby caters for a USB configuration adapter and cable, which is used to program firmware updates and configuration information on the device. The most common configuration parameters are also able to be updated OTA via LoRaWAN downlink messages.
