Vehicle, Fleet & Asset Tracking
The ideal asset and fleet tracker especially in exposed conditions or where multiple inputs and outputs are required.
Marine & Nautical
Rugged IP67 weather and water resistant housing makes the endure the ideal GPS tracker for yachts, boats, ships and jet-skis.
Exposed Mobile Assets
Easily install on trailers, mobile generators and pumps and other exposed work equipment for usage tracking and service reminders and alerts.
|Compact rugged IP67 rated housing||Made of sturdy Nylon/Glass composite plastic the housing is extremely tough and UV resistant, is resistant to oils and can easily handle high temperatures
The housing is sealed using 4 screw and has 2 convenient mounting tabs.
Dimensions: 125mm x 80mm x 25mm
|Harness Options||The GPSLiVEtrack Rugged is manufactured with various harness options. Because of the nature of the housing the wire harness is soldered to the PCB at production
3 wire (power, ground, ignition)
12 wire harness
The GPSLiVEtrack Rugged passes stringent automotive power “load dump” tests to ensure that it will continue to operate in the harshest electrical systems. A built-in self-resetting fuse makes installation easy and safe.
|Operating Temperature||-20°C to +75°C 1
1) On external power.
Below 0°C the standard internal backup battery’s ability to deliver sufficient power to operate the cellular modem is reduced. Below 0°C and above +45°C the internal backup battery will not be charged as a safety precaution due to dangers associated with charging batteries at extreme temperatures.
For battery powered tracking in extreme temperatures enquire about our Remora tracker with extended temperature range battery options.
|High sensitivity GPS||UBLOX MAX7 GPS module
Supports GLONASS and other GNSS systems
|Low noise GPS amplifier||GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA)
This allows the Rugged to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal
|2G or 3G (NextG)||The Rugged can be manufactured for specific markets around the world with cellular modem modules approved by all the major networks
2G and 4G options
|Certifications||CE, C-TICK, ICASA, ACMA, ISO 7637-2|
|Internal Antennae||Internal GPS and cellular antennae
Having the antennae inside the housing makes for very simple and quick installation. The Rugged has had its antennae tuned by the top laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
|Backup battery||The standard 850mAh LiPo backup battery allows the Rugged to operate when external power is removed for up to 7 days, depending on the amount of movement|
|4 x Digital Inputs||1 x Ignition line
3 x digital inputs with configurable pull-up / pull-down
Numerous configuration options including switches, duress/panic alerts, pulse counting
|3 x Digital Outputs||3 x switched ground digital outputs, easily wired up to switch external lights, relays, buzzers, sirens, motors and other devices
Can be used to immobilise a vehicle
|Sensor Interface||The Rugged has an I2C interface which can be used to power and communicate with external sensors including temperature probes, humidity sensors and other sensors.|
|3 axis accelerometer||The 3 axis accelerometer allows the Rugged to detect harsh driving events (harsh acceleration, braking and cornering) and this information can be used to monitor driver behaviour and unsafe driving.
It also allows the Rugged to go to ‘sleep’ when not moving, resulting in extremely low standby current.
|iButton||Communicate with common one-wire iButton devices|
|RS232||RS232 receive and transmit allow the Rugged to communicate with external RS232 devices. These can include fuel monitoring, Garmin FMI, tyre pressure monitoring
The RS232 interface can also be used to configure the device and to test and debug.
|Switched 3.3V out||The Rugged can provide power to external sensors via this 3.3V power line, allowing for easy installation and doing away with the need for additional external power supplies.
Maximum current: 200mA
|Switched 5V out||The Rugged can provide power to external peripherals via this 5V power line, allowing for easy installation and doing away with the need for additional external power supplies.
Maximum current: 300mA
|DMCAN peripheral port||Digital Matter has a range of peripherals that connect to the Rugged via the DMCAN peripheral port. Peripherals such as the RFID Driver ID reader, 5 digit keypad, data console and RF gateway use the DMCAN port.|
|Flash memory||The Rugged 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 weeks of driving!
The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, accident data, driver lists and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
|Garmin FMI||Coming soon|
|Warranty||One year manufacturer’s warranty|
