ORBCOMM Offers IoT Apps Durability and Versatility with SATCOM Terminals

ORBCOMM's ST 6100 is quickly becoming the IoT device of choice for solution providers.

ORBCOMM's ST 6100 terminal.

With a built-in antenna, the ST 6100 is suitable for use in land and marine applications and features a built-in accelerometer, expanded memory, enhanced GPS plus all the features the firm's partners have come to expect from terminals delivering connectivity over the IsatData Pro satellite network.

The ST 6100 supports a wide range of industrial asset tracking applications across the transportation, energy, heavy equipment, mining and maritime sectors, where conditions are tough and connectivity is scarce. The environmentally-sealed ST 6100 can be installed on mobile assets operating under extreme conditions such as vehicles, railcars and marine vessels. It can also be used in SCADA applications across the oil and gas and utilities sectors to remotely monitor and control equipment, including reclosers, pipelines, flow meters, generators and tanks.

With a broad set of integration tools, the firm's Starter Kit provides tools for the complete solution development cycle — from development to testing and production — and includes a terminal, a simulation environment, an interface development board and more. The ST 6100 can be programmed to support a wide range of applications and customer requirements. Use it in tandem with ORBCOMM configurable applications for more basic deployments, or loaded with custom scripts for more complex installations.

The ST 6100 builds upon the foundation of the company's soon to be retired IDP-600 series terminals and the IDP-200 series modems.
