ORBCOMM has launched its next generation solar-powered GT 1200 series. The solution is part of a comprehensive telematics solution that includes multiple sensor options, user-friendly applications and reliable cellular and optional satellite connectivity for hassle-free trailer and container tracking.
According to the company, the GT 1200 series is an evolution of company’s GT 1100 product line and includes an enhanced, high-sensitivity solar panel that charges up to 20 times faster than its predecessor even without direct sunlight, resulting in up to three times more messages per day for increased asset utilization. The compact devices are ruggedized to withstand extreme conditions, require no battery changes for up to 10 years and include built-in tamper and impact detection.
The company also claims that GT 1200 series can easily be configured with ORBCOMM’s integrated cargo sensor and other wireless sensors. With a new streamlined design, the devices can be installed externally on all cargo asset types in about 10 minutes, even when the asset is full, making customer deployments quick and efficient with minimal disruption to their operations.
