The TAM-242 satellite terminal from Honeywell Global Tracking allows users to track and monitor fixed and mobile assets such astrailers, containers, tanks and railcars, anywhere in the world. This slimline solution requires no external power source, as the standard internal battery will provide at least one month of maintenance-free operation (depending on reporting intervals). The flexible TAM-242 generates highly accurate GPS position reports, sends secure position logs and offers configurable reporting intervals and remote polling.
Like many of Honeywell Global Tracking’s terminals, the TAM-242 uses the Inmarsat constellation of satellites and the IsatM2M standard. This connectivity method offers an affordable and reliable direct-to-desktop information service with fast and easy-to-use message handling. In addition to using fixed mounting points, the TAM-242 incorporates strong magnetic feet, making it possible for users to quickly install and de-install the device, without damaging any asset surfaces.
The TAM-242 satellite terminal can be connected to a number of optional sensors, collecting a wide range of data for applications like cargo container intrusion detection (e.g., temperature, humidity, vibration, and shock) and vehicle fleet usage patterns (e.g. speed, braking, fuel consumption, and tire pressure). When the TAM-242 is delivered with external sensors and cables, the solution is referred to as the TAM-252.
