Product description

The Astronode S+ is a ready to install satellite communication device, based on an Astronode S and an Astronode Patch Antenna. It connects to your application via the full Astronode S digital interface or via RS232, both available on the industrial grade board-to-cable connector.

Bidirectional

The Astronode S+ sends your data messages, gets them acknowledged by the network and receives your data commands.

Cost-efficient

Ready to connect. No resources required in electronic and RF design, enabling short time to market.

Small form factor

Integration of our optimized L-Band patch antenna allows for a compact overall size and robust data connection.

Applications

  • Environment monitoring
  • Asset monitoring
  • System health monitoring
  • Backup solution for logistics tracking

The Astronode S+ integrates both new applications as well as retrofits existing or in the field applications. It comes in a small form factor enabling discrete installations. Minimum environmental protection against humidity and extreme temperatures must be provided for operation.
