LOW-PROFILE BATTERY POWERED TRACKER

The Remora is a low-profile, rugged 2G or 3G (NextG) GPS tracking device that has been designed for tracking containers, trailers, skip bins, and other assets where super-long battery life is required without sacrificing the frequency of updates and performance.

The Remora is able to roam onto cellular networks across the globe giving you global coverage of your assets movements at a low SIM card data cost. Communications with the device are two-way, allowing the Remora’s behaviour and update rates to be changed Over-The-Air (OTA) including being able to be switched into “Recovery Mode”.

By utilising the latest technology the Remora is able to operate in ultra-low power modes. With an incredible battery life of up to 5 years the Remora can be attached to assets and tracked without needing to change batteries.

The option of using extended temperature range batteries allows the Remora to be used in extreme climates that other tracking devices simply cannot operate in.

Hardware Features

Low-profile IP67 rugged housing

The IP67 rated housing is made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic to survive bumps and knocks and to survive many years in the sun and weather.

It is low-profile making it easier to mount in the corrugation on containers or concealed on the underside of a trailer – for example.

The 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.

Dimensions: 225mm x 65mm x 30mm
Weight: 500 grams with batteries

Batteries

C-Cell size

The Remora uses standard “C-Cell” size batteries which provide a perfect balance between size and capacity

Alkaline

Low cost off-the-shelf alkaline batteries can be used in the Remora

Extended

LTC

For applications that require extreme temperature or extra long-life Lithium-Thionyl-Chloride (LTC) batteries can be used

Sleep Current

5uA (yes, that is micro-amps)

 

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 / live updates, and to scale the update rate down to once per day if the asset is stationary - in order to preserve battery life.

5 years @ one position per day

Typically 2 to 5 years with Adaptive-Tracking

 

Operating Temperature

-40°C to +85°C 1

For extreme low temperatures the Remora must be fitted with LTC batteries.

High sensitivity GPS

UBLOX MAX8 GPS module

Supports concurrent GPS and GLONASS
72 channel high sensitivity receiver
-167dBm industry leading tracking performance
Optimal hot-start performance
AssistNow Offline aiding data for extremely fast time-to-first-fix and performance in urban canyon environments

GLONASS

The Remora 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

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!

2G or 3G (NextG) with roaming

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

2G Modem

Quad Band GSM/GPRS Class 10
850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz

3G Modem – EU

850 / 900 / 2100

Internal Antennae

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

 

Flash memory

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.
