Product Description

Through powerful Java programming, the Iridium Edge Pro collects and processes data based on operational requirements, including exception-only reporting that can minimize operational costs from anywhere on the planet.

The combination of CANbus and traditional Modbus powers newfound flexibility from a satellite IoT device. Iridium partners can also take advantage of Iridium Edge Pro’s BLE connectivity, by creating more sophisticated solutions that incorporate wireless sensors that collect vital information and delivers it in real-time.

The Iridium Edge Pro is a standalone satellite device with a Micro EJ Java application-programming environment. The device consists of a power supply, dedicated Iridium antenna, dedicated GPS antenna, BLE, four configurable inputs/outputs, RS232, RS485, and CAN bus in an environmentally sealed enclosure. It contains an Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) modem which allows remote devices to send and receive satellite messages from anywhere in the world.

Like Iridium’s SBD transceivers, the Iridium Edge Pro is ready for integration in a solution for a specific application. Using an SBD transceiver, users can design and manufacture their own customized hardware. However, with the Iridium Edge Pro, Iridium provides its users a generic finished device such that they do not need to design, build, and in many cases certify to add satellite capabilities to their existing terrestrial solutions. The Iridium Edge Pro is a stand-alone satellite device. It can be integrated into an application or solution in a remote location and communicate through the Iridium gateway to a backend application.

With Iridium Edge Pro, create customizable end-to-end monitoring solutions for vessels, vehicles, and remote equipment using Iridium’s best in the class two-way network and truly global coverage. The ruggedized packaging makes it an ideal solution for:
