Iridium SBD

Utilizing the Iridium SBD network, the only truly global satellite system, with 66 current satellites and compatible with the upcoming Iridium NEXT constellation. If you have a clear view of the sky, you can transmit data. Hardware interface includes power control, RS232 serial communications, and dedicated hardware alerts for Network Availability, and Ring Alert (incoming message notification)

Low Power
0mA standby, 100mA (avg) when transmitting
Suitable for the most exposed locations
Color Coded
6 core color coded cable, field replaceable
Digital Outputs
Digital output for Network Availability and Ring Alert


CRBasic Simplified

Included with every system is access to the Iridium library that simplifies the steps in hardware interfacing, power control, message transmission and incoming configuration messages. Use the library to integrate satellite communications into any new or existing Campbell Scientific Pakbus Datalogger program while maintaining control on all the other requirements of the station (measure sensors, store data, control outputs, etc). Programming is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Include Library
Include "CPU:Iridium.DLD"
2. Initialize
Call SetupIridium
3. Send Data
Call SendIridium(IMEI, FloatValues, BinaryValues, Hourly, EventThreshold)
