BIN TRACKING

tHe most common requirements

Much like containers, most commercial bins don't move very often, 1 or 2 position updates per day is more than enough allowing incredibly long battery life of up to 7 years or more.   
So what are the typical use cases?
 
  • Skip bins
  • Waste bins
  • Commercial bins
  • Large residential bins
  • Medical bins
  • Transport bins
In fact, most bins are not powered, and are either valuable themselves, easily subject to theft, or have valuable contents.

key challenges with bin tracking

Digital Matter's innovative battery powered trackers solve many of the traditional challenges around un-powered asset tracking such as:
  • Achieving useful battery life
  • Installation difficulties
  • Accurate reporting
  • Harsh environmental conditions
  • Rough handling
  • Tampering

Our unique techonology has addressed these challenges and provided the following:
 

BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

  • Alkaline batteries, low cost and offering accurate usage status for punctual low battery alerts as used in the Remora

  • Lithium batteries providing extra energy in small packs like AA and AAA such as in the Oyster
  • Lithium-Thionyl-Chloride batteries (LTC) yielding 100% more energy than Alkaline and extreme temperature tolerance optional in the Remora
  • All field-replaceable for user convenience, no unneccessary "return to vendor" battery replacement requirement
 

STREAM-LINE DESIGN

  • The housings are professionally designed to achieve minimum footprint capability without compromising antenna performance
  • Traditional structurally engineering principles applied to the mesh structure of the housing for maximum strength and tolerance
  • UV protected polycarbonate case with multiple fastening options for screws, bolts, cable ties, or rivets
  • Compact form factor to easily fit within the recesses of the runner rails or lid overhang down the sides of most bins
  • IP67 rating ensures the devices can withstand fine dust, high pressure spray, submersion for 30 mins in 1 metre of water, and abnormal temperatures
 

SMART TRACKING

  • Exponentially configurable device parameters such as Jostle Mode support a wide spectrum of applications to optimise reporting
  • Intuitive firmware libraries anticipate and eradicate many of the known challenges around asset tracking
  • Low Noise Amplifiers filter out the noise to enhance reporting accuracy even when tracker does not face the sky
  • Smart Power Management settings with Offline GPS Assist ensure quick "wake-up" and GPS fixes  extending battery life
