GPS Repeaters for Tracking Systems
A GPS repeater can help tracking systems in two ways
Ensures tracking devices receive a live GPS signal when indoors; valuable cargo is visible throughout its journey
Enables operating/testing of GPS tracking devices inside workshops; no need to take equipment outside to get sky view
Ensure tracking devices receive a live GPS signal when indoors
Keep track of valuable cargo as it makes its way across the globe – even when indoors.
While under cover, for example in a warehouse, transport depot or hangar, a tracking device may not receive a live GPS signal due to the blocking effect of the building structure.
While indoors the tracking device will continue to transmit status updates but the GPS location will be stale; the location information would be from the last time the tracker received a live signal – just before it entered the building. This can take several minutes, especially in an “urban canyon” situation where the cargo is surrounded by tall buildings that block GPS signal.
Additionally, when exiting the building, the tracker may have to download the entire ephemeris database from scratch because the satellites orbiting above will have moved on to a new location.

Enable operating/testing of GPS tracking devices inside workshops
Operating and testing GPS tracking devices indoors is often impossible because of the lack of live signal.
GPS signals from the satellites simply can’t penetrate the structure of the building.
Testing may have to be carried out by physically moving the equipment outside the building to get a clear view of the sky.
Or, if the weather is bad, it has to be placed close to a window that may have a reflective coating on it that also keeps signals out.
A GPS repeater system provides live satellite signals inside your manufacturing or test facility.
- No need to take equipment outdoors to receive signals from satellites
- Rapid Return on Investment (ROI) thanks to improved workflow
- Coverage radius up to 50 metres from one repeater
- Easy to install
- Avalable in standard (IP51) or waterproof (IP67) casing
A GPS repeater kit comes with all you need to get GPS signal in your test or manufacturing facility.
For larger areas where one single repeater is not enough we can offer you a custom-designed system to meet your exact requirement.
