One-way satellite based OH&S device
SPOT Gen 4 Overview
The SPOT Gen4 replaced the SPOT Gen3 in November 2020. As it has all the same communication abilities as the SPOT Gen3 and functions exactly the same, it's an easy migration for SPOT Gen3 users to the SPOT Gen4.
The primary difference between the SPOT Gen4 and the SPOT Gen3 is the SPOT Gen4's usb port is concealed within its battery compartment, making it unsuitable to be line powered. This design change does, however, increase the IP rating of the device, improving its dust and water protection rating.
The SPOT Gen4 is a cost effective solution for meeting OH&S Safety regulations for remote and lone operators who do not required two-way communications. The following tables provide an overview of pricing & plans, characteristics, functions and alarms.
For instructions on how to use SPOT devices, please refer to the SPOT Device Usage Guide.
