The RockBLOCK+ is ideal for use outdoors. The same features as the RockBLOCK Naked, but in a strong IP68 enclosure. It has a 3m 7-core cable for connectivity via UART/RS-232, with 8-32v power input.
The RockBLOCK+ allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of WiFi and GSM networks. It works on the top of Mount Everest. It works in the middle of the Sahara Dessert. It works at the North Pole. And the South Pole too. It works in the middle of any Ocean.
Maybe you want to transmit weather information from mid-ocean? Or use it to control your robot in the middle of the dessert? Perhaps you need to communicate in an emergency, when other networks might not be available? RockBLOCK+ can help you.
The RockBLOCK+ consists of a rugged enclosure 'dome' which includes all of the power conditioning, Iridium antenna, and Iridium modem. From the unit comes a 2m 7-core cable which provides power input (8-32v), RS-232/UART data connection, plus other signal lines such as RingAlert and Sleep.
