SAT-401 series

Next-Generation Satellite Terminal
The SAT-401 satellite terminal is a next-generation multi-purpose satellite terminal for tracking and monitoring high-value assets like vehicles, vessels, and cargo containers.

Once an asset has been equipped with a SAT-401 terminal and deployed in the field, the device automatically selects the most appropriate satellite and transmits its location and any additional message data via secure systems to the OTP.

The SAT-401 terminal is powered by the asset and can be used in virtually all environments. It is favored in remote regions where terrestrial communication cannot be relied upon. Even more compact in size than its predecessor, the SAT-401 provides global coverage and can be programmed to send and receive customized data from internal and external sensors - including temperature, humidity, vibration and shock.

The SAT-401 uses the Inmarsat constellation of satellites and the IsatM2M standard. This connectivity method delivers an affordable and reliable direct to the OTP information service with fast and easy-to-use message handling dirctly from & to OTP.

The SAT-401 terminal has three fully configurable inputs/outputs for sensor monitoring, and one open drain output suitable for driving relays and other indicators. The data-logging function includes GPS positions, transmissions and data for up to 20,000 entries which are accessible locally via the serial port. All transmissions are logged with a record of the time the message was created and if applicable, when it was transmitted, fully featured and interoperable at OTP.
  • Global Coverage: Offers secure satellite connectivity worldwide
  • Inmarsat and GPS Connectivity: Tracks, monitors and communicates with mobile assets anywhere in the world with OTP
  • Affordable and Reliable: Field-proven and cost-effective tracking solution for a wide range of applications
  • Multiple I/O Ports: Allows connected external sensors to report additional data, e.g., speed, tire pressure, and fuel consumption; ideal for fleet management applications
  • Optional Alert Button: Convenient in-vehicle button allows drivers to immediately warn others of danger
