ORBCOMM‘s new, state-of-the-art, ST 2100 is a satellite communications device that enables IoT solution providers to deliver ubiquitous and affordable connectivity to customers, along with enhanced reliability, improved asset visibility and access to new markets and geographies — this versatile device features a built-in antenna that enables solution providers to extend their IoT and M2M applications beyond cellular coverage.
The ST 2100 is designed for quick integration into IoT applications with minimal development. Integrating this device into your solution enables two-way satellite communications and reliable global coverage, including areas with limited cellular connectivity. As a sole communications device or as a reliable backup, the ST 2100 provides low-cost satellite connectivity for your solution. The ST 2100 boasts a smaller footprint and more flexible installation configuration compared to previous devices, such as the IDP-280.
An optional, internal, super capacitor maximizes reliability by allowing “last-gasp” messages to be sent, allowing continued operation during a temporary power loss. A built-in GNSS module allows global location tracking and reporting.
Over the air satellite updates allow the ST 2100 to receive new firmware versions without having to send a technician on site. Other over the air capabilities include the option to use the ST 2100 to remotely reset devices and equipment. Additionally, the device features an M12 connector for easy integration into new and existing solutions, while retaining the command set from its predecessor for a seamless upgrade.
The rugged and environmentally sealed ST 2100 is designed for use in fixed and mobile asset applications across various industries such as fleet management, maritime and utilities. The ST 2100 can be configured to support a wide range of applications and customer requirements.
