The Quasar-100 is a tracker with a 1 year battery life, when reporting its position 1 or 2 times per day in Battery Save mode, inside a flanged ABS box that can attached to an asset. There is a required complementary subscription plan for this product - the EcoSub_12m subscription option. The Quasar-100 is only available with this subscription, which includes 20 SMS credits, of whihc more can be separately purchased.

The Quasar-100 is shipped already in Battery Save mode reporting every 12 hrs. Customers are asked to read the self-training material in the HowTo/BatterySaveMode section on this website.

The Quasar-100 is designed for long term isolated stand-alone use where it is permanently attached to something like a trailer, a horse box or a skip. The fact that it only reports up to 1 or 2 times per day in Battery Save mode gives its a battery life or approximately 1 year before it sends a text or email message to the contact number/address when only 20% of the battery power remains. It will obviously be necessary for its owner to charge and replace it after receiving this alert.

Recharging is achieved by removing the tracker from its installed location, opening its case by rotating its casing baseplate by 180degrees, then connecting the USB Micro lead inside the casing to the supplied mains charger. The tracker circuit board and battery are inside a sealed Zip-Lock polythene bag inside the case. Re-charging its 10Ah Lithium Polymer battery from flat takes about 6-8 hours.

It is suited to long term asset protection. It comes with a fitted SIM that roams in all developed countries worldwide. There is a map of counties in which the SIM roams on the left edge of this webpage. It works from when it's dispatched. We offer a low cost reminder service for when customers want to be reminded about a battery dropping below 20% or a subscription's expiry.

The tracker must be in Battery Save mode. Its technical properties are similar to those of the Prime-ME tracker. Its ABS plastic box is pop-rivetted to make allow it to swivel open when removed. It is dust and water-tight to IP65. Its GPS and GPRS antenae are located behind its top surface, i.e. the side opposite the flanged base. The top surface must therefore be oriented towards the outside world (road, window, etc.) so as to receive the weak satellite radio signals from space. It must not be surrounded on this side by additional metal.

As with any of our trackers, there are multiple user interfaces, of which at least two will suit any internet access equipment type or operating system. The recommended user interfaces are the Tracking Apps forsmall screens (mobiles) and large screens (computers).These largely supercede the Tracking panel for Windows (using IE browser only). The free iOS app for iPhone or iPad users, the Android app and finally the Device Management Consul (HTML) also works on anything for summary info from a large number of trackers.

The available alert options when in BatterySave Mode, by email or SMS text message, are:
   Battery low - when it goes below 20%;
   Zone alerts - if it leaves or enters defined zones;
