The Spider Satellite:

  • monitors inputs
  • controls outputs
  • sends data via low cost Short Burst Data (SBD)
  • generates SMS and e-mail alarms
  • offers 2-way voice communications
  • logs (records) data
  • communicate via integrated LAN/Iridium interfaces
  • displays system/channel information on LCD
  • requires no system integration or custom software
  • is set up through user friendly "Internet surfing" approach
  • is a complete system: Spider, satellite modem, antenna, lightning arrestor and all cables

The Spider Satellite is designed for long term remote monitoring and control and provides powerful remote access and alarming. It interfaces with a wide range of digital, analog and smart sensor and meters. With integrated battery charger the Spider can control and power the satellite modem, sensors and other devices.

Once installed the Spider will log data and automatically send Short Burst Data (SBD) reports . Any alarm can activate outputs, send SMS, and alarm messages and trigger reports.
