XTracker BR: Satellite Broadband GPS Vessel Tracking

RedPort XTracker BR VSAT TrackerXTracker BR (Broadband) is a robust, dependable and extremely compact tracking device that sends out GPS position reports at pre-programmed intervals. It is particularly well-suited for use with VSAT satellite broadband terminals.
Position reports contain date, time, latitude, longitude, and average course and speed over the ground. GPS position reports are recorded, transmitted, and posted on the web in 20 seconds, on average. XTracker’s modest power requirements make it ideal for remote locations where solar panels or batteries are the only source of electricity.

Unlimited Tracking

Because the XTracker BR routes the position reports through your satellite broadband device, the frequency of the position reports can be set to whichever frequency you want. There is no additional charge for XTracker services for increased frequency, although you may incur additional charges on your satellite airtime bill for the airtime required to send the GPS pings.

Easy Installation for Secure Vessel GPS Position Tracking

The XTracker BR is installed quickly and easily on a standard 1″ threaded antenna mount. Everything is controlled from ship or shore, including position reporting and polling intervals. There are no buttons or switches on the XTracker IR unit.

Compatible With:

Iridium, Inmarsat, Thuraya, VSAT

Up To 10 Year Battery Life

The XTracker BR can be powered in one of two ways: either by connecting the unit directly to a powering bank on board, or by wiring the unit to a standalone long-life battery (purchased separately).
Depending on the type of battery being used, the XTracker BR can last as long as 10 years without changing the battery or needing any kind of upkeep.
