GSM (Global system for mobile communications) connectivity is available on a large range of Sealite devices and marine lanterns. It is suitable for areas where 2G/3G GSM coverage is available. It utilises a complete integrated module, designed to allow monitoring and control by using existing cellular networks. Each Sealite device is fitted with its own SIM card which provides a designated cell-phone contact number for each individual asset. Any network operator can be used if they offer coverage in the nominated Asset location.
Data can be sent from the enabled device to our Star2M asset management and maintenance platform or to a nominated cell phone. This data includes:
- > Electrical characteristics
- > Battery condition
- > GPS positioning
Marine lanterns available with GSM as an option include the SL-75 Series, SL-C310 Series, SL-155 Series, SL-300 Series, the SL-ODSL Omni-directional sector light and our range of Port Entry Light Solutions.
For areas where GSM coverage is unreliable, satellite connectivity (Satcom) is recommended for uninterrupted pole-to-pole coverage.
