Hughes Receives 'Hazardous Locations Accreditation' For The 9502 Integrated Antenna BGAN M2M Terminal





GERMANTOWN, Md., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   Inmarsat (LSE: ISAT), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, and Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, today announced that the Hughes 9502 integrated antenna BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) M2M (machine-to-machine) terminal has received Hazardous Locations Accreditation.

The Hughes 9502 integrated antenna BGAN terminal, which features the modem positioned behind the antenna, is now approved for use in hazardous environments, such as in the Oil & Gas sector, where explosive gaseous atmospheres may potentially be present. The device has been certified for environments classified as Class 1, Division 2, Groups A-D, and ATEX Zone 2, Group IIC, Category 3. Testing was conducted by Met Laboratories, Inc., an accredited laboratory.

The all-weather IP66 rated terminal is sealed to provide a high degree of intrusion protection by dust or moisture from any direction, and is identical in operation to the Hughes 9502 BGAN terminal with external antenna, but without the need for cables or enclosure.

Gerbrand Schalkwijk, vice president, Enterprise Energy, Inmarsat, said, "Being able to deliver an additional terminal form factor to M2M customers in the energy sector is an important step forward. It strengthens Inmarsat's portfolio offer, particularly in the O&G market, and demonstrates our commitment to delivering solutions that meet the specific requirements of our energy customers."   

"This important certification represents the fourth BGAN M2M terminal offered by Hughes, which underscores our commitment to the overall machine-to-machine market and the upstream energy segment in particular," said Graham Avis, general manager of Hughes San Diego. "Requiring only DC power and Ethernet connections, this integrated product provides our customers with a flexible and easily installed solution at remote sites, virtually anywhere."
