Support: GSatMicro Series
It operates on the Iridium Satellite Network – a truly global coverage.
The device does not make any noise but it does have lights informing you: if the device is powered on, the battery level, GPS connections, 'Alert Mode' status, satellite connections and if you have an incoming message.
Yes, the GSatMicro integrates exceptionally well with our tracking platform: GSatTrack. Go to www.gsattrack.com/SignUp for a one month free demo account.
On average, about 800 reports before the device needs to be recharged.
Standard editions come in black, however, other solid colors may be requested for a small fee. If further customization is required; custom "skins" such as camouflage or carbon fibre patterns may be requested for an additional cost.
Yes, it was designed to not only integrate with our tracking platform but it can be used on other tracking platforms as well. When considering this option though, know that GSatTrack has been optimized to fully control the GSatMicro and is the better option.
Yes, the GSatMicro case is weatherproof and dust tight. It has an 'Intrusion Protection' rating of IP67.
The GSatMicro has a single, integrated, omni-directional, high gain helical antenna. Our antenna provides 180 degrees of coverage allowing it to connect from any angle.
The GSatMicro OEM is the base product line, which includes a satellite modem, satellite antenna, microcontroller, battery, basic buttons (power on/off, check-in, config) and leds (power, GPS, satellite and data transmission status) with optional Bluetooth 4.0
The GSatMicro is a handheld version of the OEM with an integrated Bluetooth 4.0 module. There is no difference between the two despite the form factor.
The GSatMicro X Series provides dual-mode functionality without Bluetooth 4.0, allowing communication via both satellite and GSM.
Control/configuration of the device - Allows you to view/set/change current configuration and status of the device
Extracting data from the device - Allows you to exchange data with the device, e.g. submit/retrieve messages over satellite and/or GSM (model dependent)
Interfacing with other hardware - Integration with most BLE 4.0 compatible sensors/accessories is potentially supported, but disables the device from communicating with a mobile phone at the same time. E.g. ibeacons, wearables that perform monitoring of heart rate / level of oxygen in blood, etc.
Currently available is the 3G chipset. In the near future, 4G will be possible in one of the following chipsets:
- B4 and B13
- B2, B4 and B12
- B3 and B8
- B1 and B8
7.5V to 36V (protected to 40V DC)
