Orbcomm introduceses self-powered M2M tracking and monitoring device

Orbcomm Inc. (NASDAQ: ORBC) has announced the availability of the Orbcomm GT 1100, a self-powered M2M asset tracking and monitoring device targeted for a variety of global markets including transportation and logistics, heavy equipment and oil and gas.

Orbcomm´s ruggedized, easy-to-install device is designed to fit seamlessly in between the indented spacing on intermodal containers. Its low, one-inch height profile and small form factor are also ideal for tracking and monitoring trailers and other types of cargo assets. The GT 1100 is sensor-compatible and self-powered with solar recharging technology for low power consumption, which works well for tracking and monitoring other remote unpowered assets such as construction and mining equipment.

Orbcomm is a global provider of satellite and cellular-based Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions. For more information, visit www.orbcomm.com.
