TAM-242 Satellite Terminal
TAM-242 Satellite Terminal The TAM-242 satellite terminal from Honeywell Global Tracking allows users to track and monitor fixed and mobile assets such as trailers, 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 uses a rechargeable battery and 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. Features • Global Coverage: Offers secure satellite connectivity worldwide • Easy Installation: Can be installed permanently using screws, or temporarily using built-in magnetic feet • Always Connected: Tracks and monitors mobile assets anywhere • I/O Port: A connected external sensor can report additional data, e.g., speed, tire pressure or fuel consumption; ideal for fleet management applications • Affordable and Reliable: Field-proven and cost-effective tracking solution for a wide range of applications • Flexible Mapping: Facilitates viewing of assets using Google and Bing maps in a standard browser, or integrates data feeds into custom enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions • Optional Alert Button: Convenient in-vehicle button allows drivers to immediately warn others of dangers • Optional Sensors (TAM-252): Enables advanced intrusion detection solutions for cargo containers; sensors include temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, and light TAM-242 Technical Specifications Physical Dimensions 247 mm x 178 mm x 48 mm (9.7˝ x 7.0˝ x 1.9˝) Weight 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs) Mounting Screws, magnetic feet Environmental Operating Temperature -35°C to +55°C (-31°F to +131°F) Charging temp: 0°C to +45°C (32°F to +113°F) Humidity ≤95% @ +40°C (+104°F) non-condensing IP Rating IP66 Interfaces Serial Interface Asynchronous serial RS232 Baud Rate 9600 bps Parity/Data Bits/Stop Bits N, 8, 1 Battery Life Available Reporting Rates (With Corresponding Script) Typical battery life in weeks at 20° C.
