Oyster2 Receives PTCRB Approval + AT&T Certification

Digital Matter

Digital Matter’s Oyster2 is now PTCRB approved and certified for use on the AT&T Network in the United States.

PTCRB “defines the test requirements to verify compliance with global industry standards for wireless cellular devices. Member operators are committed to ensuring device quality through a rigorous certification process.”

Designed for tracking non-powered assets for extended periods of time, common applications of the Oyster2 include tracking trailers, containers, bins, hire and rental equipment, boats, bikes, scooters, and more.

The Oyster2’s uBlox SARA-R410M Modem operates on all major global LTE-Cat-M1 and NB-IoT bands. The device uses concurrent GPS and GLONASS tracking with a 72 channel high sensitivity receiver and also features a 3-Axis Accelerometer for G-force detection.

Configurable “movement-based tracking” parameters allow the device to “sleep” when stationary, resulting in industry-leading battery life: up to seven years of life at once-daily updates; one year of life at once hourly updates. The versatile asset tracker can be powered by 3 off-the-shelf AA Lithium batteries or Lithium Thionyl Chloride (LTC) Batteries for enhanced performance and temperature tolerance.

Prior to the Network Certification, the Oyster2 used International SIM cards.

The Oyster2 is now also available in redesigned Ultra-Rugged Housing. Compact and concealable, the new housing is designed to achieve minimum footprint with maximum strength and tolerance, without compromising antenna performance.

Engineered with Nylon Glass, the IP67 housing is considerably tougher and thicker in key areas, providing increased durability, thermal resistance (the device can reach temperatures up to 185F, 85C without compromising performance), and chemical resistance.

The device’s mounting tabs and screw holes have also been fortified and repositioned, improving the device’s resistance to cracking.
