BT 120 (Cellular)
The BT 120 is a reliable, accurate trailer tracking device with robust external door sensors, real-time alerts and proactive maintenance management. Flexible communications take advantage of the higher performance and reliability of 4G LTE networks.
GT 1200 Series
Designed specifically for trailer and intermodal container tracking, the GT 1200 Series features highly improved solar charging capabilities, cargo sensor, global LTE, a global sim card, support for a wireless BLE door sensor and for wired door sensors, TPMS alert light and temperature probes. Its small form factor makes it easy to install on trailers and intermodal containers to provide complete asset visibility, improve operations and lower the cost of doing business—all without the hassle of frequent battery changes. Also available is an optional satellite accessory that integrates seamlessly with the GT 1200 for increased reliability and improved asset visibility.
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.
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.
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.
