Low-profile IP67 rugged housing
The UV stabilised housing screws together for easy assembly, and has 2 convenient mounting tabs. It also has ‘strap slots’ allowing the Remora to be cable tied or metal strapped to an asset. The Remora's low-profile makes it easy to mount in the corrugation on containers or concealed on the underside of a trailer, for example.
Dimensions: 225 mm x 65 mm x 30 mm (excl. mounting tabs)
Weight: 500 grams with batteries
The Remora uses 4 x “C” size batteries, which provide a perfect balance between size and capacity. Low cost off-the-shelf alkaline batteries can be used in the Remora.
For applications that require extreme temperature or extra long-life, Lithium-Thionyl-Chloride (LTC) batteries can be used.

Battery Life with Adaptive-Tracking
The Remora 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.
5 years @ one position per day (at 25°C).
-20°C to +60°C
For operation in extreme temperatures, the Oyster must be fitted with LTC (Lithium Thionyl Chloride) batteries. Batteries are affected by temperature extremes and typical performance is dependent on temperature.
High sensitivity GPS
- Supports concurrent GPS and GLONASS
- 72 channel high sensitivity receiver
- -167dBm industry leading tracking performance
- Optimal hot-start performance
- AssistNow Offline aiding data for fast time-to-first-fix and performance in urban canyon environments
The Oyster 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 Remora to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal – like in a container stack!
The Remora can be manufactured for specific markets around the world with cellular modem modules approved by all the major networks, and can roam across networks

Internal GPS and cellular antennae tuned by the RF laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
3 axis accelerometer
The 3 axis accelerometer allows the Remora to ‘sleep’ in an ultra-low power state yet still wakeup when movement occurs.
The accelerometer can also be used to detect extreme G-Force events such as an accident or abuse of the asset, for example dropping a container.
Magnetic Tamper Detect
Optional magnetic wireless tamper switch detects when the device has been removed from the asset
The Remora has sufficient memory to store over 50,000 records in its flash memory. Normally the data will be sent to the server immediately but if the device is out of range then there is sufficient space to ensure that no data is lost – for many months!
The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, geo-fences and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
