Hughes Broadband Terminal Passes Hazardous Locations Test

HughesLogoHughes Network Systems LLC’s broadband global area network machine-to-machine terminal has garnered a hazardous locations accreditation from MET Laboratories Inc.

The Hughes 9502 global-use M2M terminal operates over Inmarsat‘s BGAN service and passed recent tests in environments with potential traces of explosive gases, Hughes said Wednesday.

The Class 1, Division 2 BGAN M2M terminal supports energy customers that operate supervisory control and data acquisition networks in hazardous environments, said Gerbrand Schalkwijk, vice president for enterprise energy at Inmarsat.

Inmarsat partner Zedi Inc. has already ordered terminal, which connects Internet Protocol data to weather and tsunami warning systems, seismic data collectors, smart grid applications, pipeline monitors and surveillance cameras.

“Over the last two years, our team engaged Inmarsat and industry customers to outline requirements for a new M2M BGAN terminal and we’re pleased to see this terminal available for commercial delivery to Zedi this quarter,” said James Freeman, Zedi chief technology officer.
