Introduction
Key characteristics of the Picotrack Endurance devices are the extremely long duration battery
lifetime and low maintenance requirements. The Picotrack Endurance is suited for a wide range of
asset tracking applications, which includes the following types of assets (this list is not exhaustive!):
 Containers

Freight Wagons

Trailers and swap bodies

Construction machines

Boats

Large, long-life and mobile industrial equipment
As different applications may have similar but slightly different requirements for long-term low
maintenance tracking, Telic offers two variants of the Picotrack Endurance, the Endurance Primary
and the Endurance Rechargeable. While software features of both units are nearly identical, they
do differ in the shape of the enclosure as well as in internal hardware components.
1.1
Picotrack Endurance Primary
The Picotrack Endurance Primary (non-rechargeable battery) is the ideal choice for all applications
with medium to low tracking frequencies and the requirement for an ultra-long battery stand-by
time. Picotrack Endurance Primary provides the following advantages:
 Ultra long stand-by time (more than 8 years with 1 transmission per day)
 Higher temperature range for operation
 Extremely low battery self-depletion
 IP69k housing

1.2
Picotrack Endurance Rechargeable
This version is best suited for applications with higher tracking frequencies and the ability to
occasionally recharge the battery. Picotrack Endurance Rechargeable provides the following
advantages:
 More appropriate for higher tracking frequencies
 IP67 grade housing; IP67 connector is used for configuration and charging (USB-power supply)
 No effort to replace batteries

Operation Set up
The operation set-up of the Asset Tracking device can be realized in few quick steps.
Please take proper measures for ESD protection (e.g. electrical connection
of the body to ground) to make sure you do not destroy internal
electronics! Repair of ESD damages caused by user’s negligence will not be
covered by Telic’s warranty.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the sudden and momentary electric current that
flows between two objects at different electrical potentials normally caused by
static electricity.
3.1
Schematics of the device
The following figure shows the physical dimensions of the housing and should assist in mounting
the device:
Figure 3: Physical Dimensions of the housing
3.2
Opening the device
Open the Picotrack Endurance housing by removing the screws on the outside edge of the housing
(see Figure below). When the screws are removed lift the top of the device in order to reveal the
circuit board underneath.
3.3
Inserting the SIM Card
A working SIM card from a suitable network provider must be properly inserted in order for the
device to operate correctly.
9
The messages of the Picotrack are transmitted via the mobile GSM network.
Therefore you need a standard 3 Volts or 1.8 Volts SIM card. Please give
preference to post-paid SIM cards!
To insert the SIM card first open the SIM card holder by gently sliding the top of the holder back
and then swinging it into the upright position. Then slide the SIM downwards (direction of arrow)
into the top of the SIM card holder as shown in the figure below (equally applicable for Picotrack
Endurance Primary & Rechargeable).
Figure 4: Where to insert the SIM Card (Example: Endurance Rechargeable)
With the SIM inserted close the top of the holder and gently slide it forward (direction of arrow
below) until it snaps into place.
Figure 5: Plugged-in SIM Card (Example: Endurance Rechargeable)
Before the Picotrack logs into the mobile GSM network, it checks whether the used SIM card is PIN
free. If it is PIN free, it will start normal operation.
If the SIM card is not PIN free, please ensure that the PIN is set to “0000” before it has been
inserted. The PIN can be changed e.g. with a normal GSM mobile phone to “0000”.
To speed up the log-in into the GSM network, the SIM card should not contain any phone book
entries.
10
Do not touch the GPS antenna in order to avoid contamination of the
receiver which may lead to a reduction of receiving quality (should you be
forced to clean the pad sometime, please do so using pure alcohol).
3.4
Connecting the Battery
The device is delivered by Telic GmbH with the internal battery disconnected from the electronic
PCB. Plug the battery inside the PCB connector as shown in Figure 6 and check that the LEDs starts
blinking.
Figure 6: Connecting the Battery cable

3.6
Closing the device
Please take care that the housing covers fit together tightly and properly, and that the rubber
gasket is still in place.
With the cover in place re-insert and tighten down all the screws. Be careful not to over tighten the
screws as it will damage the casing and could lead to a reduction in the effectiveness of the
environmental protection of the housing.
Please close the housing by screwing the Phillips screws down back into its original position. The
clear plastic light guides must be located above the LEDs. Please ensure that the cover locks
properly into position.

Status indicators
Internally the device has three status indicators; each indicator has 2 or 3 different coloured LEDs
grouped close together.
Components
Right indicator (GPS)
Picotrack Endurance Primary / Rechargeable
This indicator includes 3 LEDs under its glass (yellow, green and
red) and reflects the status of the GPS reception as well as the
device reset.

GPS is not switched on
1 time blinking yellow
position acquisition not possible
2 times blinking green
2D-Fix (no valid height and the
position may be imprecise)
3 times blinking green
3D-Fix (GPS data are complete)
About 5 seconds red during device reset (in this case also the red
LED of the middle indicator is on at the same time).
Middle indicator
The middle indicator consists of two LEDs (yellow and red).
Yellow LED is permanently on: this indicates that the device has
external power supply and the battery is currently charging (only
applicable for Picotrack Endurance Rechargeable). If the device is in
sleep mode, the middle indicator works identically; just the left and
the right indicator are off.
Remark: If the middle LED is off, this does NOT mean, that the Telic
Picotrack tracking and tracing module is switched off. In fact it only
indicates that the device is not connected to external power
supply.
The red LED indicates the following:
This one and the red right indicator are permanently on during the

whole DOTA (Software-Update Over-The-Air) procedure.
During download of data when the DOTA is running, the green LED
on the left indicator is also on.
It is blinking red when the battery is “Low”, indicating that the
battery needs to get recharged soon, otherwise the Picotrack will
switch off automatically.
In case of an internal device reset this LED will be on for about 5
seconds and then return to its initial status. At the same time the
red LED of the right indicator will be also switched on.
Left indicator
Also whenever the internal button is pushed the middle LED will
illuminate red in order to indicate the button is being pushed.
The left indicator consists of both a green LED and a red LED.
The green LED reflects the GSM status and also, whether the device
is switched on.
When the LED is off, the device is switched off.
Permanently on means, GSM is switched on, but no GSM network
is available.
Blinking once means the device is logged into the GSM network.
Blinking twice indicates an established TCP/IP connection to the
server.
Slow double blinking of the red LED means that the SIM card is not
readable (e.g. not correctly inserted into the SIM cardholder). After
a certain period of time the Picotrack Endurance will switch-off
completely (as it would be after pushing twice the red on/off
button).

Basic Features
The device can be configured via serial cable by using the Telic Configuration tool otherwise
remotely via SMS and GPRS. Please contact Telic GmbH to have more details about the
configuration procedure.
6.1
Event Types
The Picotrack Endurance’s primarily task is to transmit GPS position data, including additional
status information via a TCP/IP connection to the tracking server. If a message can’t be
transmitted, it will be stored in the device to be transmitted later. There is a storage capacity of
about 1.000 position messages. The following events will generate a position message which
always contains the GPS position:
6.2

Time Event: The end of a time period of x seconds (x being configurable).

Distance Event: After a distance of x meters (straight line distance to the previous event) in any
direction (x being configurable) has been travelled.

Angular Change Event: A direction change of a configurable minimum angle in x degrees (x
being configured) at a configurable minimum speed of y km/h (y being configurable).
Connection Establishment Procedure
The GSM and GPS modules will power up after switching on the Picotrack device. After logging in
into the GSM network the Picotrack will attempt to establish a GPRS communication link. Finally a
TCP/IP connection to the tracking server will be established to transmit the event messages.
The selection of the GSM network operator will take about 1 minute, plus the time to build up the
GPRS- and TCP/IP-connections to the tracking server. Therefore, after switching on the device, it
will take approximately 2-3 minutes until the first status message can be transmitted. Independent
of this procedure, GPS positions and status information will be generated and stored in the internal
memory for later transmission. Here follows the message structure:
6.3
Event Message Structure
The first identified and valid GPS position will be taken as the reference position for the distance
interval calculations. The next distance interval event will be generated if the configured distance
has been reached. If another event (e.g. time interval event) has been generated before, the
distance interval measurement starts again at the position of this new event. That means that any
position message with an actual GPS position sets a new reference for the distance interval
calculations. This reduces the number of messages sent while still keeping the desired resolution of
the track.
A position message will also be generated in the case of a direction change being greater than the
configured angle while travelling at the configured minimum speed.
In situations where no new valid GPS position is available, the last valid position will be
transmitted.

Advanced Features
In this paragraph are described some advanced features supported by the device, which might be
requirement for different use cases.
7.1
Geofencing
Geofencing (an electronic safety fence) provides the opportunity to set a geographic square
around a defined location. Here you can set different scenarios like “leaving the area” or “entering
the area” and transmit an event to the control centre. With the Picotrack Endurance you can
monitor 50 geofence areas which can also be combined to create larger areas and build up a
complex protection zone. Every geofence area is given an Area ID, a centre (defined by its
longitude and latitude) and a height and width (from the centre not completely across) in meters.
Figure 11: Geofencing
7.2
Roaming alternative configuration
The device is able to detect a GSM roaming status and swap automatically to an alternative setup
for roaming (this alternative setup has to be previously configured). This allows optimizing the data
traffic and reducing the communication costs.
7.3
Device Watchdogs
The Picotrack has different integrated watchdogs. They automatically check the functions of the
device and generate resets as soon as they recognize any malfunction. Malfunction could occur
due to internal problems of the device, problems related to the GSM connection, problems with
the GPS reception and many more.
This watchdog concept ensures that the Picotrack can automatically return to stable operation if
necessary. Control of the watchdogs by the user is not necessary.
If the watchdog has to restart the device it may happen that some of the position messages and
respectively events are not logged and as a result they are not transmitted to the tracking server.
7.4
Device based wireless positioning (GSM Tracking)
The device can be configured in order to get a localization obtained by the GSM module, in case
that the GPS has some difficulties on providing a valid fix. Of course this position will be less
accurate and take a bit longer than the standard way by GPS module, therefore this functionality
has to be considered as emergency backup for the GPS.
20
Note that this feature is only available with the Picotrack Endurance Primary.
A lot of other features are available on Picotrack Endurance but they are kept
as “confidential”, therefore not disclosed on this document. Please contact
the Telic Technical Pre-Sales support in case that your specific use case
requires something which you don´t find described in this document.

Device Installation on Board
The device should be installed in a location where it is well-hidden in order to protect your asset
from theft and vandalism. Please install the device in a suitable, dry location, not in contact to
generators of radio and audio frequency interference. Be aware to observe ESD (Electro Static
Discharge) protection measures. When installing the device consider that antennas are integrated,
this means the device should be installed in a place with a minimum distance of 7 cm to metallic
components of the asset in each direction. The surface of the internal GPS antenna should be
pointing skywards in order to optimize the quality of the received signal.
Figure 12: Installation on board (Example: Endurance Primary)
The unit can also be placed on the lateral side of the Asset or even below it if the optimal
installation described above is not possible. Consider, though, that this might have the following
effects:



Reduction of the device’s battery life time due to the GPS module requiring more time and
higher power consumption to get a fix.
Less precise fix. The accuracy of the fix might be affected by reflections of the GPS signals. It is
advisable to configure in such cases the unit to perform 2D fixes.
No fix possible. In this case, it is possible to get a rough position by device-based GSM tracking
(Picotrack Endurance Primary only), but the battery lifetime of the unit will also be adversely
affected.

Safety
The following guidelines must be followed in order to ensure the safety of users. If these rules are
ignored Telic will not assume responsibility for any damages that are incurred.
9.1
General battery handling
Because the Picotrack Endurance main power source is a battery with high energy content. They
are designed to represent the highest possible degree of safety. They may, however, present a
potential hazard if they are abused electrically or mechanically. This is in most circumstances
associated with the generation of excessive heat. In this case the internal pressure may cause the
cell case to rupture.
As a result the following general guidelines should be followed when handling the Picotrack
Endurance Battery:
 Do not short-circuit
 Do not over discharge
 Do not incinerate
 Do not expose to temperatures beyond the specified temperature range
 Do not crush or puncture
 Do not open cells, do not disassemble battery packs
 Do not expose contents to water
 Do not connect with false polarity
 Do not weld or solder to the battery’s body
It is very important that only authorized official Telic replacement batteries be used in the
Picotrack Endurance Rechargeable or Primary. Also the batteries included with the devices are only
tested or authorized for use in the Picotrack Endurance. The batteries should never be used in any
other devices unless specifically authorized by Telic, including but not limited to other Telic
products or devices.
No attempt should ever be made to recharge the Picotrack Endurance Primary battery. This
Primary cell is specifically not rechargeable and attempting to do so would be very dangerous.
9.2
Battery storage
Batteries should be stored in rooms with generally low temperature and low humidity levels. While
it is not essential that these storage areas be temperature and humidity controlled, temperatures
should generally be kept below 35 °C and storage areas should be well ventilated. Storage
temperatures above 75 °C should be avoided.
Your Picotrack Endurance batteries should be stored in their original packaging materials or in the
Picotrack Endurance itself. This will eliminate unintentional shorting. Do not store batteries in
conductive anti-static bags or foam unless the resistivity of the material exceeds 1 MΩ. Batteries
should not be placed on or covered with metallic or otherwise conductive material.
Batteries should be stored away from any flammable material in the storage area. Fire
extinguishers for metal fire (class D) are preferred. Do not attempt to extinguish fires with small
amounts of water, sand, or with carbon dioxide extinguishers.
9.3
Battery disposal
The disposal or recycling of batteries is regulated by each European country. In each country, the
manufacturers, importers and users are responsible for the proper disposal. The European
Community (EC) has issued two directives, 91/157/EEC and 93/86/EEC. These directives are
implemented by each member country of the EC independently and in a different way. In
23
accordance with these directives, The Picotrack Endurance Batteries do not contain dangerous
substances. The reaction products are inorganic and do not represent environmental risks once the
decomposition process has terminated.
