Mounting and Installation [Yabby Edge Cellular]

The Yabby Edge can be mounted onto an asset to be tracked using screws, bolts, cable ties, magnets, or industrial adhesives. 

Additionally the multiple housing options (standard, collar and snap-together) offer many mounting alternatives. 

When choosing a mounting point, you have two competing goals

  • To minimise the chances of the device being accidentally crushed, dislodged or discovered by a thief
  • To maximise the GNSS and mobile reception and provide adequate ventilation.

Key mounting notes:

  • Avoid installing the box completely enclosed in a metal box
  • Avoid installing in a location that will result in elevated temperatures. For instance, mounting the device in direct sunlight on the dash of an non-ventilated cabin may cook the batteries, leading to abnormally short service life. 
  • Try to orient the GNSS antenna towards the sky where possible (screw heads facing down)
    • This is particularly important for a device like the Yabby Edge - where the GNSS sensitivity is slightly less than that of a 'full' GNSS device like the Yabby3
    • The best possible mounting location for optimal GPS reception is one that gives a clear, 180 degree view of the sky and free from obstructions.
