An optional internal super capacitor maximizes reliability by allowing “last-gasp” messages to be sent, allowing continued operation during temporary power loss.
ORBCOMM’s new ST 2100 is a satellite communications device enabling IoT solution providers to deliver full coverage and affordable connectivity to customers, along with enhanced reliability, improved asset visibility and access to new markets and geographies. The 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 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.
The ST 2100 offers 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 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 to the 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 ST 2100 is rugged and environmentally sealed, and is designed for use in fixed and mobile asset applications across various industries such as fleet management, maritime and utilities.
The ST 2100 offers a broad set of integration tools, and the Starter Kit provides tools for a complete solution development cycle — from development to testing and production — and includes the device, a simulation environment, an interface development board and more. The ST 2100 can be configured to support a wide range of applications and customer requirements.
