BATTERY POWERED OR HARDWIRED GPS TRACKER & SENSOR


The Falcon Cellular is a super-smart, battery-powered tracking device in a rugged IP67 housing - in particular designed for asset location with temperature monitoring.

Super-long battery life is possible with LTC (Lithium Thionyl Chloride) batteries, or connect to a power source for a permanent solution. The Falcon comes in a 2G version, or a 4G LTE CAT-M1 / NB-IoT combo module. The 4G version is especially designed for low-power operation - resulting in the longest battery life around.

Multiple input interfaces and a digital output allow for monitoring and control for many years. The Falcon Cellular uses a combination of GPS and Wi-Fi to track assets both outdoors and inside buildings, warehouses, depots etc.

The I2C interface supports a range of sensors, in particular the Digital Matter temperature probe. This is a great solution for cold-chain applications, where the Falcon device can be used to track items as small as pallets or coolbox containers, providing accurate position data and very accurate and responsive temperature monitoring. 

  • Run from battery (3 x AA - LTC or "off-the-shelf" Lithium) or line power (5-16V)
  • Rugged, waterproof IP67 Housing
  • On board GPS with LNA for location
  • Wi-Fi Sniffing for indoor localization
  • 2 x Digital Inputs with pulse counting
  • 1 x Analog Input (0-30V)
  • I2C interface for a wide range of sensors - especially temp probes
  • also supports temp & humidity
  • 1 x Digital Output

LOW-COST, IP67 RATED BATTERY POWERED BLUETOOTH(R) TAG

 

The Guppy is a compact, rugged Bluetooth tag perfect for low-cost monitoring of assets. The Guppy Bluetooth integrates with other Digital Matter devices that support Bluetooth, or they can be used with your own Bluetooth mobile applications.


WHY BLUETOOTH?

We have added Bluetooth to the Remora, upcoming G120 and Eagle models. These devices can serve as Bluetooth 'gateways', and pass Guppy Bluetooth Tag data to the server.
The Guppy will transmit a beacon signal every few seconds, broadcasting: 

  • Device Serial Number
  • Digital Matter Manufacturer Code
  • Battery Voltage
  • Transmit Power (to be used with RSSI for range estimates)
  • Temperature

Given these are GPS devices, and their location is known, the location of each Guppy can be approximated. 
The Guppy Bluetooth is low cost, compact, runs off just 2 x AAA batteries for up to 5 years, and won't require a SIM or data plan.
 

JUST SOME OF THE POTENTIAL USE CASES

Automatic Inventory Management - If a Guppy Bluetooth is attached to each item of stock, the number of tags that report to a gateway device can be used to count the number at a location.
Monitoring equipment across multiple sites - With a gateway located at each site, the gateway which a Guppy is reporting to will indicate which site the tagged asset is located
Hire Equipment - Monitoring equipment entering/leaving the yard based upon whether it is in range of a gateway or not.
Bin Location Tracking - Knowing where the bins were dropped of and by which truck. The truck will contain a gateway device, and when a Guppy attached to the bin is 'lost' (out of range of the gateway) - the bin has been dropped off at this location. 
Trailer Tracking - with automatic scanning of which pallets are on the trailer. A gateway device would be attached to the trailer and a Guppy Bluetooth on each pallet.

BATTERY POWERED BLUETOOTH(R) SENSOR DEVICE IN AN IP67 HOUSING

 

The SensorNode Bluetooth® is a battery powered, Bluetooth enabled sensor device that interfaces to a range of sensors and inputs.

Check out our Tracking with Bluetooth Guide to quickly get up to speed on how Digital Matter devices leverage their Bluetooth functionality to open up new possibilities!

The SensorNode Bluetooth wirelessly transmits its data to other Bluetooth enabled devices.
It is designed to be paired with other Bluetooth enabled devices in the Digital Matter range such as the Remora2, as well as the upcoming G120 and Eagle. 

A pending app update will allow mobile phones installed with the Telematics Guru App to receive data from the SensorNode and report it to the server. 

The ubiquitousness of Bluetooth leads to an array of exciting potential applications. The SensorNode is able to be integrated into 3rd platforms or apps if desired. 


HOW DOES IT OPERATE?

The SensorNode Bluetooth can be easily attached to whatever you would like to monitor. It can be hardwired to permanent power, or powered by 3 x AA batteries if power is not available. It will last for up to 4 years on just a single set of batteries!

The SensorNode will send a beacon with its data every few seconds, and 'Bluetooth Gateway' devices like the Remora2, or even a moblie phone will receive data when they are within range. 

The SensorNode is low cost and many can be placed around an area, with a single, relatively more expensive Bluetooth Gateway device acting as the conduit to pass their data to the server. This enables a low cost monitoring solution.
