The Oyster is a compact, rugged 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 IP-67 rated housing is rugged and UV stable, so the Oyster can be mounted on assets that are exposed to rain, dust and marine conditions.
By utilising the latest technology, the Oyster can operate in ultra-low-power modes, and with an incredible battery life of up to 4 years the Oyster can be attached to assets and tracked without needing to change batteries. The Oyster has built-in antennas for GPS reception and for LoRaWan communication, a 3D accelerometer, and a high-performance GPS that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously and flash memory for storing non-volatile information.
The Oyster Cellular uses 3 x AA 1.5V “off the shelf ” Lithium batteries. These are generally available at retail outlets from manufacturers like Duracell and Energizer. Industrial 1.5V Lithium AA batteries are also available at bulk pricing.
The Lithium batteries have excellent performance and capacity, and allow the Oyster Cellular to be used in extreme temperatures and climatic conditions that other tracking devices simply cannot operate in.

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’s low profile together with mounting tabs and ‘strap slots’ allow for easy mounting.
Dimensions (mm) L 137 x W 72 x H 30mm
Operating Temperature: -20°C to +60°C1 For operation in extreme temperatures, the Oyster must be fitted with Lithium batteries. Batteries are affected by temperature extremes and typical performance is dependent on temperature
3 x AA Batteries: The Oyster uses 3 x “AA” size 1.5V Lithium Batteries. These are readily available from retail outlets, for example Energizer Ultimate Lithium.
Sleep Current: 10uA (micro amps)
Maximum Input Voltage: 6V Max, no reverse input protection
GPS and Cellular Antenna: Internal GPS and cellular antennas tuned by RF laboratories for optimal performance.
GPS/GLONASS: UBLOX MAX-M8Q GPS Module Concurrent GPS and GLONASS tracking 72 channel high sensitivity receiver -167dBM industry leading tracking performance
Assistnow Offline: Assist Now Offline aiding data for extremely fast time-to-first-fix and performance in urban canyon environments
Low Noise GPS Amplifier (LNA): GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA). This allows operation where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal – like in a container stack!
SIM Size: Micro (3FF) size cellular SIM card
3G Modem – EU: 850/900/2100
