ORBCOMM’s solar-powered GT 1200 series delivers the latest in dry trailer and container telematics technology at unprecedented value to customers. Gain complete visibility of assets virtually anywhere in the world, improve asset utilization and driver productivity, streamline operations and protect cargo to maximize ROI.
A new solar panel leverages the latest technology to deliver longer-lasting battery life and charging capabilities, making recharging possible even in indirect light, on overcast days and in high Northern latitudes. Shipped fully charged, the GT 1200 holds its charge for at least 6 months, allowing for storage before installment. Once installed, the device can deliver multiple messages per day with limited sun exposure.
The GT 1200 is available as a comprehensive trailer mointoring solution that includes connectivity and a customizable application with powerful reports, dynamic dashboards, advanced analytics, two-way commands and more. Customers may also integrate ORBCOMM’s data feed into third-party Transportation Management Systems and proprietary enterprise applications. Also available is an optional satellite accessory that integrates seamlessly with the GT 1200 for increased reliability and improved asset visibility.
The GT 1200 series is available in two variants:
ORBCOMM offers a variety of high-performance IoT sensors that provide detailed reports to help you better manage your assets, improve operational efficiency and reduce unauthorized usage and theft.
TS 300 Wireless Temperature Sensor
ORBCOMM’s TS 300 wireless temperature sensor helps ensure the integrity of temperature-sensitive cargoes, such as refrigerated or frozen foods and pharmaceuticals, as they move along the supply chain. Used with the ORBCOMM® AG 400, the sensor provides both general cargo area temperature and multi-zone monitoring in refrigerated trailers and trucks independent of the refrigeration unit.
Euroscan Temperature Sensors
The Euroscan temperature sensors seamlessly integrate into ORBCOMM’s cold chain monitoring solutions to help ensure the integrity of temperature-sensitive cargoes such as refrigerated or frozen foods and pharmaceuticals as they move along the supply chain. The IP68-rated sensors operate in extreme temperatures and environments.
GT 1210 with Integrated Cargo Sensors
ORBCOMM’s solar-powered GT 1210 is available as an all-in-one trailer and container tracking solution that integrates cargo sensors for quick and easy installation. Ideally suited for large-scale deployments, the GT 1200 series can be installed in about 10 minutes to minimize operational disruption. Use on any trailer or container asset type and in any orientation. This state-of-the-art, feature-rich tracking solution delivers powerful remote asset management and cargo status detection capabilities with minimum wiring.
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.
DS 300 Wireless Door Sensor
ORBCOMM’s wireless door sensor delivers enhanced visibility of trailer and container operations and improved cargo security. The DS 300 detects when doors open or close, enabling fleet operators to know if the cargo area is being accessed as scheduled and react quickly to unexpected openings.
DS 100 Door Sensor
ORBCOMM's reliable DS 100 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.
Euroscan Side Door Sensor
ORBCOMM’s Euroscan Side Door Sensor seamlessly integrates into our asset tracking solutions, detecting when a side door is opened or closed outside set parameters, such as location or temperature, in order to help operators protect cargo against temperature deviations and theft.
The IS 400 seamlessly integrates with our GT 1200 series trailer tracking devices, to allow dispatch to identify the truck that is connected to a trailer. The IS 400 uses Bluetooth technology to allow fleets to ensure that the right truck is connected to the right trailer, saving time and money. The Tractor ID sensor makes life easier for drivers by taking a menial task off their hands, improving driver retention for fleets, while giving the back office the peace of mind that the right cargo is on its way to the right destination.
The ORBCOMM platform is a single, unified, next-generation analytics and reporting platform that unlocks data-rich insights from your assets so that you can make faster, more accurate, better informed decisions. Manage all your assets in one place with a single, user-friendly fleet management solution.
Smart trailer management solutions from ORBCOMM provide the total visibility needed for fleet managers to optimize utilization, reduce costs, protect cargo, and more. Reduce idle and dwell times, improve turns, automate yard management and more.
“We’re able to track trailers, the temperatures in the trailers all the time, the trucks, everything. Everything is faster—response time in the truck with drivers, the visibility for drivers—the reports are so much clearer. Overall, I’d say across the fleet it has boosted efficiency— it’s an easy system to work with. The drivers like it.”
