Cargo Sensor
ORBCOMM’s durable CS 100 cargo sensor can be integrated with the solar-powered GT 1100 asset tracking solution to detect the presence or absence of cargo inside standard trailers of up to 20 feet, providing greater asset visibility and security. Using ultrasonic technology, the CS 100 monitors the trailer and can immediately send an alert if there is a change in load status or if the sensor is damaged or removed. With the CS 100, fleet owners no longer have to worry about arriving at a customer site to pick up an empty trailer only to find that it is still loaded.

SC 200 Full Length Cargo Sensor
ORBCOMM’s full length SC 200 cargo sensor can be integrated with our award-winning GT 1100 asset tracking device to detect the presence or absence of cargo inside standard full-length trailers, providing greater asset visibility and security. The SC 200 has a sensing range of up to 53 feet and sends alerts if a change in load status occurs or if the sensor is damaged or removed. As part of a comprehensive trailer tracking solution, the SC 200 enables fleet operators to quickly identify empty and loaded trailers, optimize turn time, detect cargo theft and more.

Door Sensor
ORBCOMM's reliable door sensor can detect if the trailer or container door is open or closed beyond set parameters or while in route, providing enhanced security and operational efficiency. The Door Sensor can report a rapid number of open and close events or if the asset is outside a pre-determined geofence, helping fleet owners improve asset safety and security. A door sensor combined with a cargo sensor can also allow a fleet owner to manage effective detention billing with clients who choose to keep a trailer for additional storage use.

Fuel Level Sensor
ORBCOMM's advanced fuel sensor can monitor fuel volume and multiple chamber tank levels through valuable operations data and reporting. The fuel sensor can immediately detect the rapid loss of fuel to provide a significant deterrent against fuel theft and pilferage. The sensor is mounted in the tanker and is easily installed in just a few hours. The continuous and reliable monitoring of fuel levels maximizes the mission efficiency, security and accountability of fuel transport.


Temperature Sensor
ORBCOMM's proven temperature sensors help to ensure the integrity of perishable and temperature-sensitive products throughout the cold chain. This technology enables the collection and analysis of in-transit cargo temperature data for the entire trip to maximize compliance, help prevent loss of loads and improve customer satisfaction. Specific temperatures or ranges can be set and verified for the duration of the trip. It can also send near-real-time alerts if the temperature deviates from the set range, enabling immediate response.
