SKU: EXP-540

Product Description

The EXPLORER 540 by Cobham is the world’s first M2M (machine-to-machine) BGAN terminal that is designed for dual use on the Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) and on available cellular networks (2G/3G/LTE).  This allows the EXPLORER 540 to deliver reliable connectivity for monitoring and controlling critical applications in the field.  Engineered to connect and control monitoring applications in remote and/or unmanned sites, it allows for both visibility and management of those assets.

As the only BGAN M2M terminal to offer dual mode operation, the EXPLORER 540 provides unique flexibility and M2M data transfer cost controls, because it allows you to select the most cost-effective option depending on your location.

The EXPLORER 540 is rugged, small, and light allowing it to be adapted to even the harshest environments while still measuring in at less than 8 x 8 in and lighter than 4 lbs.  Additionally, the durable casing is dust- and water-proof up to IP66, so it is an excellent choice for any fixed installation, whether outside or inside.


  • EXPLORER 540 is BGAN M2M certified and BGAN Class 2 Type approved for services such as BGAN Link
  • Lightweight and rugged IP66 design ensures durability for outside mounting – no enclosure needed

  • The optional cellular 2G/3G/LTE Modem is an integrated part of the design
  • Automatic failover between BGAN and the cellular network ensures continuous connectivity.
