Orbcomm ST-2100

The ORBCOMM® ST-2100 provides reliable, global satellite connectivity to the most remote areas of the world. The versatile, environmentally sealed ST-2100 can be installed on mobile assets like light-and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, railcars, heavy equipment and more. It is also well-suited to monitoring fixed assets like pipelines, pumps, generators and tanks used in industrial and utilities environments.

The ST-2100 delivers a simplified architecture for off-the-shelf, low-cost satellite messaging. Unlike the ST-6100, it is not programmable and does not support ORBCOMM applications or Lua scripting. An intuitive AT Command set is available for quick integration with external PLCs and general-purpose controllers. The ST-2100 can be installed with side or bottom cable access.

Description Fleet managers get the best of both worlds:
lower cost data transmission in areas with cellular coverage, and reliable, always-on satellite communications over the two-way IsatData Pro satellite network in remote locations—all from a single-source provider.As part of a comprehensive fleet management solution, the IDP-782 can be used in security applications to track vehicle location, driver behavior, for text messaging, e-forms and more. This device can also be used in SCADA applications to monitor and control fixed oil and gas equipment.Flexible Programming
IDP-782 supports the development of custom applications for more complex solutions as well as configurable software applications for simpler deployments and quicker time to market.Airtime savings
Use cellular or automatically switch between cellular and satellite connectivity for significant cost savings.Continuous operation
The IDP-782 features a backup battery option that enables reporting for up to 12 hours when no vehicle power is available.
IDP-800 is the first low-profile satellite communications terminal with an integrated battery compartment that uses the two-way IsatData Pro satellite data service for remotely tracking and managing fixed and mobile assets anytime, anywhere.

This slim profile terminal is ideal for tracking trailers, containers, vehicles, and vessels, and can either be powered by non-rechargeable or rechargeable batteries, or by vehicle power.

The IDP-800 can also be purchased with optional remote antenna.

Fully customizable and environmentally sealed, IsatData Pro terminals are specifically designed to provide visibility and communications with people and equipment even in the world’s harshest environments.

IsatData Pro offers enhanced reliability and the ability to deliver up to 37 times more data in seconds – more than other satellite-based machine-to-machine (M2M) services in the market.

The ST 6100 satellite terminal delivers complete visibility and control of industrial assets operating in remote areas. The versatile, environmentally sealed ST 6100 can be installed on mobile assets such as light-and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, railcars, fishing vessels, heavy equipment, and more.

And with two-way satellite connectivity, the ST 6100 is ideal for remotely monitoring and controlling fixed and portable assets used in SCADA applications such as those in the energy sector, where access may be restricted, including pipelines, flow meters, pumps, generators and tanks.
