ORBCOMM launches self-powered M2M tracking and monitoring device

GT 1100 targeted for transportation, logistics, heavy equipment and oil and gas marketsrn

ORBCOMM, a global provider of satellite and cellular-based machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, has announced the availability of the ORBCOMM GT 1100, a self-powered M2M asset tracking and monitoring device targeted for markets such as transportation and logistics, heavy equipment and oil and gas.

ORBCOMM’s device is designed to fit in between the indented spacing on intermodal containers. Its low, one-inch height profile and small form factor are also ideal for tracking and monitoring trailers and other types of cargo assets. The GT 1100 is sensor-compatible and self-powered with solar recharging technology for low power consumption, which works well for tracking and monitoring other remote unpowered assets such as construction and mining equipment.

The ORBCOMM GT 1100 can support three modes of communication – cellular, satellite and dual-mode, which blends cellular and satellite capability.
