SX1 Tracking Tag is One of the World's Smallest Battery-Operated Satellite-Based Tracking Tag Available Today
Woodbridge,IL, February 5, 2008 - The Morey Corporation, one of America's leading electronics manufacturers, announced today that it will manufacture Numerex's Orbit One SX1, one of the world's smallest and longest-lasting global satellite-based tracking tags. Recently introduced by Numerex, the Orbit One SX1 is the first in a planned series of self-contained, long duration, battery-operated satellite-based tracking tags that can accurately and cost effectively monitor and track assets all over the world. The tag will be bundled with Numerex proprietary software to enable remote asset management, GPS tracking, mapping, display, reporting and data forwarding as part of its Total Asset Visibility (TAV) solution.
Measuring only 7.25"x 3.25"x " (184x83x25mm) and weighing just 13 ounces (369g), the SX1 can be attached in seconds to high value assets such as intermodal shipping containers, trailers, buoys, barges, and mobile generators. The SX1 offers several "peel and stick" mounting options enabling simple implementation on virtually any surface. The SX1 is part of a complete, turn-key, global satellite tracking and monitoring solution offered by Numerex as part of its All Terrain M2M(TM) services and solutions.
"We selected Morey Corporation based on their track record of manufacturing excellence and their ability to add enhanced durability to our product," said David Ronsen, President of Orbit One, Numerex Satellite Solutions Division. "As a result, we have developed a world-class solution that can be immediately put to use by a variety of customers and industries."
Morey's expertise in manufacturing hardened electronics is a key step in the Orbit One SX1's development. Bundled within a small, economical and versatile package that incorporates a field replaceable battery, the Orbit One SX1 is extremely rugged and can withstand real-world conditions such as high levels of vibration, heat, shock and moisture. Manufactured in the U.S. and certified to exceed MIL STD 810, IP68 and NEMA 6P ratings, the Orbit One SX1 has the highest environmental integrity of any RFID, satellite or cellular tracking device, and is capable of delivering up to seven years of uninterrupted service on a single battery pack.
In addition to providing global GPS visibility, the Orbit One SX1 helps alleviate security concerns, reduce costs associated with shipping delays and fleet downtime, and increase operational and logistical efficiencies for military and commercial shippers, forwarders, steamship lines, port operators, customs clearance, trucking, and air and rail users.
"We're pleased that Numerex chose to leverage Morey's expertise in hardened, high-reliability electronics to build this remarkable new product," said Keith Gelinas, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at The Morey Corporation. "Numerex is a global M2M industry leader and the groundbreaking Orbit One SX1 product is poised for substantial growth."
