Skipper FX 150 FBB

The FX 150 FleetBroadband is the latest-generation maritime communication systems operating on the Inmarsat FleetBroadband Satellite System. It is compactly designed and easy to install.

Using Inmarsat’s most advanced commercial communication satellites, the FX 150 FleetBroadband provides simultaneous access to clear digital voice, fax and high-speed data with email and SMS. It makes it easier for the Captain to download the latest weather and navigational charts while the crew members can call, talk, send and receive text messages and email around the world.

The FX 150 includes a primary handset with a large colour LCD display and mobile phone type keys for making phone calls, sending and receiving SMS messages, including larger SMS content of greater than 160 characters as multipart or segmented messages. This feature is popular for the Captain and the crew members who are used to texting from their GSM mobiles while on shore.

For internet service, the FX 150 can simply be connected to an onboard computer network using RJ45 Ethernet connection. With MAC address filtering and user control of NAT, DHCP functions and PPPoE, the FX 150 offers both Single User and Multi-User Router modes.

The FleetBroadband terminal has a continuous GPS output feature which allows GPS data to be sent out via the RS232 port in standard NMEA 0183 format. With the built-in GPS module, the FX 150 is able to provide accurate position information to onboard systems such as plotters and depth sounders, with configurable baud-rating setting. In addition, the FleetBroadband terminal supports taking external GNSS input in NMEA 0183 format via the RS232 port.
