LOCATION

Chipset Semtech LR1110
Constellation Concurrent GPS / BeiDou
Cloud-Based Solver Asset location is calculated in Digital Matter’s Location Engine
Tracking Sensitivity -134 dBm autonomous / -141 dBm aided
GNSS Assistance GNSS almanac data for greater sensitivity and position accuracy
Low Noise Amplifier GPS signals are filtered and boosted by a SAW filter and low-noise amplifier (LNA) allowing operation where other units fail
Cell Tower Location Cell tower fallback for positioning when there is no GNSS or Wi-Fi signal
Wi-Fi Positioning Indoor asset location using Wi-Fi access point scanning (device does not connect to Wi-Fi)

 

POWER

Input Voltage 3-5.5V DC
Sleep Current <10uA*
*Average current in lowest power configuration

 

MECHANICS / DESIGN

Dimensions 108 x 86 x 31 mm (4.25 x 3.39 x 1.22″)
Weight 157 g (5.5 oz)
Housing Ultra-Rugged IP67 Housing
IP Rating IP67 rated housing ensures device can withstand fine dust, high-pressure spray, submersion for 30 mins in 1m of water, and extreme temperatures
Installation 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.
Operating Temperature -30°C to +60°C
For operation in extreme temperatures use Lithium Batteries
Cellular Antenna Internal
GPS Antenna Internal
Wi-Fi Antenna Internal
3-Axis Accelerometer 3-Axis Accelerometer to detect movement, high G-force events, and more
Diagnostic LED Diagnostic LED indicates operation status
Flash Memory Stores records if device is out of cellular coverage. Storage capacity for over 10 days of 2-minute logging.
Speed and Heading Scanning technology used on the Oyster Edge does not return speed and heading
On-Board Temperature The device reports internal temperature which provides an indication of ambient temperature but may not always be precise

 

SMARTS

Auto-APN Auto-APN allows the device to analyze the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware
Battery Life Monitoring “Battery Low” and “Battery Critical” alert levels
Geofence Alerts The server can use device location to create geofences and alerts if an asset enters or leaves designated locations
Impact Detection Configure impact-detection alerts when G-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold
Intelligent Power Management Early registration abort and location scan throttling options
Periodic or Movement-Based Tracking 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.
Preventative Maintenance Set reminders based on distance traveled and run hours to reduce maintenance and repair costs
Run Hour Monitoring Capture run hours based on movement to understand and optimize asset utilization
Sleep Mode Stationary devices enter sleep mode until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage
Theft Recovery Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate real-time tracking for asset retrieval
Tip Detection & Rotation Counting Axis angle reporting, tip detection and rotation counting (planned)

 

DEVICE MANAGEMENT

Flexible Configuration 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
Configuration App Configurable with DMLink provisioning tool

 

INTEGRATION

Third-Party Integration HTTPS Webhook
Cloud-Based Solver Digital Matter’s Location Engine makes it easy to perform cloud-based position solving and integrate data into any system

 

SECURITY

Data Security Military-level AES-256 Encryption from device to OEM Server to protect the integrity and confidentiality of telematics data. Data forwarded to third-party systems is sent via HTTPS for end-to-end security.

 

WARRANTY

Manufacturer’s Warranty Two-year manufacturer’s warranty
