The New Sting

July 6, 2017

The Sting is an ultra-compact, rechargeable GPS tracking device. The light, temperature and humidity sensors set it apart from other battery powered trackers. It has been designed to track high value parcels, cargo, cash in transit, personnel, and other assets where super-long battery life is required without sacrificing the frequency of updates and performance.

The rechargeable, high capacity Lithium Polymer battery pack allows it to be recharged and redeployed, extending the product life.

Utilising the latest technology, the Sting can operate in ultra-low power modes. With an incredible battery life of up to 18 months on a charge, the Sting can be attached to assets and tracked without needing to charge the battery regularly. The Sting has built-in antennas for GPS reception and cellular communication, a 3D accelerometer, a high-performance GPS that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously and flash memory for storing non-volatile information. 

The light sensor is designed to work as a tamper detector for cargo applications. If a parcel or container is opened, the Sting can detect the light change, wake up and report the tamper.

The temperature and humidity sensor allows spoilable cargo to be tracked.


Compact housing
The compact housing is made of sturdy ABS plastic. It clips together, requiring no screws.Dimensions: 97 mm x 52 mm x 18 mm Weight:110 grams with battery pack



Li-Po Pack

2500mAh 3.7V, temperature controlled charging.


USB Micro 5V input, 500mA. USB cable included.

Sleep Current

10uA (micro amps) with accelerometer on and other sensors off


Battery Life with Adaptive-Tracking

The Sting 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 updates, and to scale the update rate down to once per day if the asset is stationary - to preserve battery life.

18 months @ one position per day (at 25°C)


Operating Temperature


-20°C to +60°C (discharge only)


0°C to +45°C (temperature controlled)


Temperature/Humidity Sensor




Precision Relative Humidity Sensor. ± 3% RH (max), 0–80% RH.


High Accuracy Temperature Sensor. ±0.4 °C (max), -10 to 85 °C.


Sting housing may need modifications for responsive measurements.


Light Sensor


On PCB with a light pipe through the housing.


0.045 – 188’000 Lux.


Configurable anti-tamper can report on light change.


Flash memory

The Sting has enough flash to store over 25,000 data records, and will record information even when out of cellular coverage.

The flash memory is also used to store firmware updates, GPS aiding data, parameters and other important information.

A future firmware version will allow for geo-fences to be loaded into the flash memory of the device and used for geo-fence alerting on the device.
