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.

Line Rental and Credits are purchased via our online management system once you receive the unit and your login.

Line rental is paid in blocks of 1 month, and allows the RockBLOCK to exchange information with the Iridium satellite network. You only pay for months in which you wish to use the RockBLOCK. No annual contract is required. Line rental costs £10.00 per month

Credits are used each time you transmit. 1 credit is used per 50 characters sent or received. 1 credit is also used if you check your mailbox and there are no messages waiting (A mailbox check). Credits do not expire, even if you are paying no line rental.
