Hughes 9502 Range

BGAN M2M Satellite Terminal

The Hughes 9502 IP satellite terminal provides reliable connectivity over the Inmarsat BGAN network for IP SCADA and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.

The device is offered in one-piece or two-piece form factors as well as a variant compliant for operation in Hazardous environments.

The 9502 terminal delivers affordable, global, end-to-end IP data connectivity enabling applications in industry sectors such as environmental monitoring, SmartGrid, pipeline monitoring, compressor monitoring, well site automation, video surveillance, and out-of-band management to primary site communications.

The exceptional low power consumption (1W idle) of the Hughes 9502 makes it possible to provide end-to-end IP connectivity to sites that are off the grid. This breakthrough provides end-to-end IP connectivity to power-challenged locations that rely upon solar- battery arrays involving sensitive power budgets.

Antenna Positioning Flexibility

The Hughes 9502 includes 10 meters of RF cabling, granting the user freedom to position the antenna remotely and away from the transceiver in complex installations while securing the SIM card inside a premise or enclosure to better protect against unauthorized use, theft, and vandalism.

The One-Piece 9502 is also identical in service performance to the two-piece 9502, even though it has a smaller antenna. Both systems are class 2 BGAN terminals. Only a 12-volt power cable and an Ethernet cable are needed for the cable run to this device. Exterior-rated Ethernet cables are rated for 328 foot (100 meter) cable runs.

The Hughes 9502 includes the One-Piece terminal, a padlockable security bar that keeps the enclosure caps from being removed, and four mounting bolts. We recommend the mounting bracket when purchasing the One-Piece 9502.

No Enclosure Needed for One Piece

The Hughes 9502 One-Piece BGAN Terminal is excellent for locations that may not have an enclosure for remote equipment. (The Hughes 9502 standard system requires an enclosure).

Sealed, NEMA Rated Enclosure for Two Piece

Ground Control also offers a sealed enclosure specifically designed for the 9502. This enclosure is all weather NEMA rated.

Enables Solar Solutions

Since the 9502 can use less than .1 watt of power (in hibernation mode, 4 watts in 24 x 7 mode), small solar solution like the one above can be designed and used.

Type N Connection

The Type N connection on the back of the 9502 antenna. Note the 4 bolts on the back of the antenna are identical. In the picture above, are 2 black rubber caps over 2 of the protruding bolts.

Antenna Dimensions

You may purchase our mounting bracket, or customizes your own to secure the antenna. There are 4 identical bolts protruding 17mm from the back of the antenna with 4 securing locking nuts. Dimensions of the 4 bolts are 70mm W x 90mm H on center. Bolt hole size in custom bracket should be 3/8th" or 1cm.

Connector for 9502

A Type-N to TNC adapter is included for the 9502 antenna port. The 10m cable has Type N connectors at both ends.

Installing BGAN M2M SIM Card

Installing the BGAN M2M Sim Card into the 9502. The 9502 terminal uses specialized BGAN M2M service (via BGAN M2M Sim Card), that will NOT work when installed in other BGAN terminals.

Four Component Parts

The four components that make up the 9502 BGAN solution... The L-band antenna, 10 meters of RF cable (Type N connection at both ends) the 9502 BGAN terminal, and a TNC to Type N connector.

Side View of Terminal

The 9502 uses special M2M BGAN service that charges between 1 to 2 cents per Kilobyte! Excellent for small packet communication. And BGAN M2M service does NOT bill for overhead data related to establishing (or reestablishing) a connection to the High-Speed satellite network. This is a great deal for remote device control.

Milled Aluminum Case

The One-Piece places the Hughes 9502 terminal inside of a milled aluminum case two caps on both ends. Removing the caps requires only a screwdriver with the four screw-bolts. (These caps are lockable using the locking bar/plate (shown on top).
