Rugged satellite terminals for reliably tracking vehicles, vessels and industrial fixed equipment

Track fixed and mobile assets over land and sea, no matter how remote

IDP 600 series terminals enable remote management of fixed and mobile industrial assets anywhere in the world. Whether managing trucks, fishing vessels, oil and gas and mining equipment, or remote installations and personnel, the IDP 600 series increases productivity, lowers operating costs and enables compliance with government regulations.

Fleet managers and systems integrators choose the IDP 600 terminals as a cost-effective global tracking solution for managing equipment, vehicles, vessels and protecting cargo over land and sea.

Fully programmable and environmentally sealed, IDP 600 series terminals use the global, two-way Inmarsat IsatData Pro satellite service to provide visibility and communications with people and equipment even in the world’s harshest environments.

IDP 600 series terminals include device-level applications, tools and unparalleled customer support designed to quicken time to market and reduce implementation costs. With ORBCOMM’s competitive hardware and airtime pricing packages, businesses can accurately budget communication costs without roaming charges, and equip fleet and asset management groups regardless of location.
