IDP-782 (GSM + SAT Hybrid)
Cellular and satellitecellular terminals for fleet management applications


The fully programmable, feature-rich IDP-782 delivers connectivity to assets over cellular and satellite networks.

Fleet managers get the best of both worlds: lower cost data transmission in areas with cellular coverage, and reliable, always-on satellite communications over the two-way IsatData Pro satellite network in remote locations—all from a single-source provider.

As part of a comprehensive fleet management solution, the IDP-782 can be used in security applications to track vehicle location, driver behavior, for text messaging, e-forms and more. This device can also be used in SCADA applications to monitor and control fixed oil and gas equipment.

Flexible Programming
IDP-782 supports the development of custom applications for more complex solutions as well as configurable software applications for simpler deployments and quicker time to market.

Airtime savings
Use cellular or automatically switch between cellular and satellite connectivity for significant cost savings.

Continuous operation 

The IDP-782 features a backup battery option that enables reporting for up to 12 hours when no vehicle power is available.

Standard features include built-in 1-Wire, CANbus, accelerometer, dual SIM and sensor ports. The device also supports HSPA/GPRS.

Vehicle and driver safety
Improve driver, vehicle and cargo security with reliable, always-on backup satellite communications.
