The Iridium Edge allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky

The Iridium Edge 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. Maybe you want to transmit weather information from mid-ocean? Or use it to get telemetry back from an oil well? Perhaps you need to communicate in an emergency, when other networks might not be available? We can help you.

The EDGE consists of a weatherproof enclosure which includes all of the power conditioning, Iridium antenna, and Iridium 9603 SBD modem. From the unit comes a 20cm tail with M12 8-pin male connector to provide power input (8-32v), RS-232 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 £12.00 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 unless you do not use your account at all for 12 months.
