|LTE-M / NB-IoT
(supports roaming between networks – roaming SIM required)
Nordic nRF9160 Modem operates on all major global LTE-M and NB-IoT bands
Supported LTE bands:
|SIM Size & Access
|Internal Nano 4FF SIM
eSIM Ready (MOQs apply)
|Wi-Fi Location Scanning
|Indoor asset location using Wi-Fi access point scanning
|Cell Tower Location
|Cell tower fallback for positioning when there is no GNSS or Wi-Fi signal
|Asset location is calculated in Digital Matter’s Location Engine
|~5m-80m with GNSS scanning in open areas
~10m-100m with Wi-Fi in urban areas
~250m-1km Cell Tower Geolocation – dependent on number of nearby towers
|Low Noise Amplifier
|GPS signals are filtered and boosted by a SAW filter and low-noise amplifier (LNA) allowing operation where other units fail
|GNSS almanac data for greater sensitivity and position accuracy
*Results vary based on real-world conditions. Device configuration, installation, environmental conditions, augmentation services, and many other factors may lead to variations in positioning accuracy.
|2.2 – 3.6V
*Average current in lowest power configuration
|2 x AA. Batteries not included.
|Supported Battery Types
Lithium (LiFeS2) – recommended for best performance
*Please dispose of Lithium batteries in a safe and responsible manner
|*Battery Life Estimates
|Once Daily location updates – 10+ years
Movement-Based location updates – 5+ years
Hourly location updates – 3+ years
*Battery life estimates are influenced by several factors including temperature, installation and orientation of the device, the frequency of location updates, network coverage, sensor integrations, peripherals, accelerometer settings, and more.
MECHANICS / DESIGN
|149 x 51 x 21 mm (5.9 x 2.0 x 0.8 in)
|Non-branded housing for optional white-labeling
|Ultra-rugged and waterproof IP68 and IK07-rated housing ensures the Barra Edge can withstand impact, fine dust, and brief submersion
|Compact and concealable. Multiple installation options for covertly and easily securing the device to assets with screws, bolts, cable ties, rivets, and more. Stainless steel screws supplied.
|Magnetic switch enables quick activation and tamper detection
|-30°C to +60°C
|3-Axis Accelerometer to detect movement and high G-force events
|Diagnostic LED indicates operation status
|Internal flash memory stores approximately 1400 records if device is out of cellular coverage
|Speed and Heading
|Scanning technology used on the Barra Edge does not return speed and heading
|The device reports internal temperature which provides an indication of ambient temperature
|Configure parameters to send updates based on set time intervals or when movement occurs. Adaptive tracking technology detects when the device is on the move and increases the update rate, providing detail when you need it while conserving battery when stationary.
|Battery Life Monitoring
|“Battery Low” and “Battery Critical” alert levels
|The server can use device location to create geofences and alerts if an asset enters or leaves designated locations
|Configure impact-detection alerts when G-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold
|Magnetic switch can be used to activate the unit – meaning SIM cards and batteries can be pre-installed, simplifying deployment
|Keeps a count of the number of rotations of the device about the Z axis
|Run Hour Monitoring
|Capture run hours based on movement to understand and optimize asset utilization
|Stationary devices enter sleep mode until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage
|Magnetic switch provides an alert if the device is removed from your asset
|Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate real-time tracking for asset retrieval
|Define a range of angles that constitutes a ‘tipped’ state and configure alerts
|Configure device parameters such as position update rate, movement and accelerometer settings, and more to fit any tracking application
|Device Management Platform
|Manage, monitor, configure, debug, update, and restart devices remotely from our cloud-based device management system
|Configurable with DM-Link provisioning tool
|Military-level AES-256 Encryption from device to Device Management Platform to protect the integrity and confidentiality of telematics data. Data forwarded to third-party systems is sent via HTTPS for end-to-end security.
|Two-year manufacturer’s warranty. Exclusions apply.
|Please see our knowledge base for device certifications
