Trafmate™ Satellite
(Transceiver for Monitoring and Telemetry)

Trafmate-Satellite is a unique integration of microprocessor and a satellite modem to provide a 100% coverage of the entire United States and the world.  It operates on 12V DC.  With a built-in power manager, the Trafmate consumes very little power.  The RS-232 serial port with custom cable provides for interfacing with most traffic counter and detectors.  Trafmate uses a flex mast type of antenna.  It contains a type-accepted transmitter approved by the FCC.
