WideEye FX 500 FleetBroadband Satellite Terminal

The FX 500 FleetBroadband is the latest-generation maritime communication systems operating on the Inmarsat FleetBroadband Satellite System. It is compactly designed and easy to install.

Using Inmarsat?s most advanced commercial communication satellites, the FX 500 FleetBroadband provides simultaneous access to clear digital voice, fax and high-speed data with email and SMS. It makes it easier for the Captain to download the latest weather and navigational charts while the crew members can call, talk, send and receive text messages and email around the world. Moreover there will be no noticeable degradation of data bandwidth when the terminal is at the edge of satellite coverage unlike other classes of FleetBroadband terminals.

The FX 500 includes a primary handset with a large colour LCD display and mobile phone type keys for making phone calls, sending and receiving SMS messages, including larger SMS content of greater than 160 characters as multipart or segmented messages. This feature is popular for the Captain and the crew members who are used to texting from their GSM mobiles while on shore.

For internet service, the FX 500 can simply be connected to an onboard computer network using RJ45 Ethernet connection. With MAC address filtering and user control of NAT, DHCP functions and PPPoE, the FX 500 offers both Single User and Multi-User Router modes.

The FleetBroadband terminal has a continuous GPS output feature which allows GPS data to be sent out via the RS232 port in standard NMEA 0183 format. With the built-in GPS module, the FX 500 is able to provide accurate position information to onboard systems such as plotters and depth sounders, with configurable baud-rating setting. In addition, the FleetBroadband terminal supports taking external GNSS input in NMEA 0183 format via the RS232 port.

With the standard built-in Wi-Fi feature, the web-based user interface can be accessed via any web browser including Wi-Fi-enabled Smartphones such as BlackBerrys, iPhones, iPads, and PDAs via the FX 500?s secure Wi-Fi (WLAN). The Wi-Fi connection also offers wireless Push-to-Talk (PTT) service to Smartphone users using free PTT applications such as Zello, without having to add any additional hardware to the terminal, unlike other PTT solutions that require expensive add-on hardware.
