EXPLORER 510 is focused on wireless connectivity. It harnesses the power of the EXPLORER Connect App, which turns your Android and IOS smartphones and tablets into powerful satellite communications tools.
When it comes to setting up you can be online in minutes using your own wireless devices. The USB host allows wired connections to the terminal and the optional EXPLORER LTE dongle, so you can use local cellular if available and switch to BGAN when needed.
Whether you’re reporting the news, exploring for natural resources, doing commercial or government business or helping people in emergencies, EXPLORER 510’s high quality voice and broadband up to 464 kbps offer the performance you need to carry out your work in the field.
Regardless of location or environment, with EXPLORER 510 you can make and receive calls, use email, access the web, connect to your corporate network, stream video & audio, and harness the power of work specific IP applications to make sure you get the job done.
At 200mm x 200mm x 50mm, EXPLORER 510 is smaller than a standard laptop and weighs less than 1.4 kg. It is the smallest EXPLORER BGAN terminal ever but despite its compact size it delivers reliable communication in any conditions.
Your ability to communicate and do your job will not weigh you down with EXPLORER 510. Its unique design makes it an ideal tool for field communication on its own, or as a companion alongside EXPLORER 710 or a semi-permanent EXPLORER VSAT terminal.
EXPLORER 510 draws from the established EXPLORER legacy, offering the same high-quality materials and manufacturing, but featuring a whole new design direction for this leading series of satellite terminals.
Media, government, humanitarian and utility users know that EXPLORER terminals are designed and built to last. So whether you are helping people on the fault line, creating news on the frontline or measuring flow on a pipeline, you know you can rely on EXPLORER 510 to connect every time.
