SAILOR 6140 mini-C Maritime System provides the reliability and functionality to meet all vessel monitoring requirements including: Data Reporting, Vessel Monitoring System, GeoFencing and Two-Way Messaging.


SAILOR® 6140 mini-C Maritime System

The SAILOR 6140 mini-C Maritime is a sophisticated, dedicated Vessel Management System (VMS) and tracking terminal. It supersedes the well established SAILOR 3026M/S, which is used aboard thousands of professional fishing vessels worldwide, to meet mandatory requirements for the carriage of satellite tracking equipment.

Designed for Extreme Conditions

The system is a single, self-contained and sealed terminal, housing both antenna and transceiver. This design approach has proven to be rugged and reliable, especially for use aboard the harsh environment of a professional fishing vessel. With the terminal’s 50 channel GPS module and omni-directional antenna, satellite fix and position are ensured even under the most adverse conditions.

Today, it is mandatory for fishing vessels in more than 40 countries around the world to carry satellite tracking equipment. Since the mid-90’s Thrane & Thrane has delivered more than 25,000 Inmarsat-C and mini-C terminals for monitoring solutions all over the world and the next generation SAILOR 6140 mini-C Maritime is based on the unmatched experience Thrane & Thrane has in developing innovative satellite tracking systems.

Ensure you meet requirements

With the SAILOR 6140 mini-C Maritime you can be sure that you are meeting requirements through a wide range of functionality.

Data Reporting

A standard data report contains information about latitude, longitude, speed, course, time, date as well as the SAILOR mini-C identity number. However, the data report package can be tailored to suit specific needs.

Vessel Monitoring System (VMS)

SAILOR 6140 mini-C Maritime provides a number of advanced tracking functions. With GeoFencing you can divide relevant sea areas into a range of geographical zones meaning you can define special areas of interest where specific reporting intervals come into effect and also be alerted when your vessel is out of its designated zone. With increased memory capacity the terminal is now able to hold a multitude of different zones and programs.

Two-Way Messaging

With the SAILOR 6140 mini-C Maritime it is easy to send various types of text messages. Simply connect a PC to the terminal and you are ready to receive Enhanced Group Calls or send catch reports at all times. You can also exchange e-mails, fax, SMS, and special messages to other Inmarsat-C users.

Event Reporting

With the optional TCU programming for advanced monitoring is available with up to 14 I/O pins or 7 output pins, depending on configuration. Power events, antenna blockage and other events can trigger event reports.


ThraneLINK is a sophisticated communication protocol that connects the SAILOR products in a network, offering important new opportunities to vessels. It provides facility for remote diagnostics and enables access to all the SAILOR products from a single point for service. This results in optimized maintenance and lower cost of ownership because less time is needed for troubleshooting and service. Installation is made easier as ThraneLINK automatically identifies new products in the system. The uniform protocol is an open standard which provides a future proof solution for all vessels.
