Module Overview
The M12t+Sat is a micro-miniature electronic module that integrates communications, cybersecurity and sensors into a single IoT device. The M12t+Sat maintains all the capabilities of other devices in the M12 range, including extensive processing and memory storage, in addition, the ability to transmit data via satellite. As a result, the module can be used outside the mobile phone network.

There is a full suite of hardware-hardened security features for cyber security, including Trust Anchor, Secure Boot, Authentication and Encryption. It has the full features of the M12t module with an additional satellite modem, for world-wide coverage.

To ensure cost saving the M12t+Sat primarily uses its GPRS interface where there is Mobile Phone coverage, but reverts to satellite where the phone coverage is lost enabling consistent connectivity.

The module also integrates sensors for GPS POSITION, MOVEMENT, VIBRATION, AUDIO and AMBIENT TEMPERATURE with GSM, GPRS, BLUETOOTH and SATELLITE communications.

Due to it’s additional satellite connection the M12t+Sat has a number of unique potential use cases. This includes automotive and industrial HUMS systems that require world-wide connectivity, global tracking, and the remote control of devices without access to mains power.

Examples of specific consumer products which could use the M12t+Sat technology include:

  • On-board diagnostics (OBDII) and telematics
  • tracking of autonomous personal vehicles
  • smart sensors
  • marine applications
  • industrial monitoring and general tracking
  • monitoring and control applications.
