ORBCOMM Inc. has launched the ST 9100, a dual-mode telematics device targeted for monitoring and controlling assets in the most remote geographies around the world. It can be utilized for a variety of IoT applications such as vehicle security, vessel monitoring, fleet management as well as the remote monitoring of equipment in the oil & gas, utilities and construction sectors.
ST 9100 enables multi-network connectivity over cellular networks using LTE capabilities with 3G and 2G fallback and reliable low-latency satellite communications as needed to provide ubiquitous coverage. An embedded ORBCOMM global SIM enables cellular connectivity on over 565 cellular networks, facilitating deployment in nearly any region of the world regardless of the connectivity option.
The new device features a larger backup battery, which allows for uninterrupted operation when an external power failure has occurred for a minimum of 48 hours for improved reliability and performance. ORBCOMM enhanced its next-generation device with additional inputs and outputs and serial interfaces, greater memory as well as a dual CANbus that allows users to monitor and control different electronic control units over various protocols.
The ruggedized, environmentally sealed device is also built to withstand extreme temperatures, shock and vibration and is rated to IP67 for ingress protection
