Halytech introduces new microSpider Satellite data-logger
Sydney, NSW 20th August 2012
Halytech is pleased to announce its new low-cost, low-power solution for remote monitoring and data logging which uses the Iridium satellite network Short Burst Data (SBD) service for automated data delivery.
The microSpider satellite is ideal for applications such as environmental, industrial or infrastructure monitoring where other forms of communication are just not possible. To reduce the cost of remote site data acquisition to an affordable level, Halytech has developed a highly compressed data format which enhances the performance of data delivery using the Iridium SBD service. With data plans starting from as little as $8 per month*, remote data via satellite now costs about as much as that offered by mobile phone networks.
As with all Halytech products, microSpider Satellite’s configurable I/O combined with Modbus and SDI-12 compatibility provide great flexibility for use with a broad range of instruments. All products include an on-board web server which allows the user to view and configure all parameters without special software or licences.
