MC60E is a quad-band full-featured GSM/GPRS/GNSS module using LCC castellation package. It is fully pin-to-pin compatible with Quectel MC60 module, and supports both BT4.0 and BT3.0 specifications. BT4.0 supports BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology, which features ultra-low peak, average and idle mode power consumption, thus making MC60E especially ideal for applications requiring energy-efficient Bluetooth wireless connectivity. The module also supports Dual SIM Single Standby.
MC60E integrates both GPRS and GNSS engines in one compact and low profile SMT package. It supports EPOTMtechnology which provides predicted Extended Prediction Orbit to speed up TTFF without need of extra server. Based on EPO data, QuecFastFix Online function further reduces TTFF in cold start. EASYTM technology enables a very fast first fix when there is no enough satellite information. AlwaysLocate™ and GLP (GNSS Low Power) power saving modes ensure great positioning accuracy while with ultra-low power consumption. The built-in LNA provides the module with improved RF sensitivity and exceptional acquisition/tracking performances even in weak signal areas.
The compact form factor, great positioning performance, low power consumption and dual (U)SIM card interfaces make MC60E a best choice for a wide range of M2M applications, such as bicycle-sharing system, vehicle tracker, wearable device (smartwatch), pet tracker, asset tracker, driving recorder, etc.
