Orbcomm launched its next generation solar-powered GT 1200 series of devices as part of a telematics solution that includes multiple sensor options, and cellular and optional satellite connectivity for trailer and container tracking.

The GT 1200 series is an evolution of the GT 1100 product line and includes a high-sensitivity solar panel. Additionally, the GT 1200 series can be configured with Orbcomm’s integrated cargo sensor and other wireless sensors. With a new design, the devices can be installed externally on all cargo asset types in about 10 minutes, even when the asset is full.

“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,” said Orbcomm Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Marc Eisenberg.“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.”
