ORBCOMM, a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, has announced that it has launched its next-generation solar-powered GT 1200 series of devices as part of a comprehensive telematics solution to increase container visibility.

According to a statement, the GT 1200 series is an evolution of ORBCOMM’s industry-leading GT 1100 product line and includes an enhanced, high-sensitivity solar panel that charges up to 20 times faster than its predecessor even without direct sunlight.

The GT 1200 series can also be easily configured with ORBCOMM’s integrated cargo sensor and other wireless sensors.

A recent Port Technology technical paper looked at the future of IoT innovation 

Due to its streamlined design, the devices can be installed on all cargo asset types in about 10 minutes, even when the asset is full, which makes customer deployments quick and efficient with minimal operational disruption.

Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s CEO, said this: “ORBCOMM’s new GT 1200 series is part of our comprehensive innovation plan to enhance nearly all our products to expand our existing capabilities and provide customers with advanced technology and unmatched value.

“With expanded support for wireless sensors, an improved solar panel and safer, faster field installation, the GT 1200 product line features the latest in asset tracking technology and offers incremental benefits to our transportation customers looking to streamline their fleet operations and gain efficiencies.”
