ASE SBDpro Short Burst Data® Terminal


The SBDpro terminal is an extremely versatile and efficient solution for gathering remote data and transmitting it using the Iridium Short Burst Data® (SBD®) service. The SBDpro monitors and records user-connected switches and voltage inputs, combines this data with built-in GPS data, temperature readings, UTC time, and custom text messages, and securely transmits to your desktop or server application. Status of practically any type of sensor can be transmitted or used as a transmission trigger. You configure the SBDpro to transmit only the data you want at times you want—minimizing airtime costs. The SBDpro is easily configured via a standard e-mail SBD message or through a direct RS232C connection.

Suggested Applications:

  • Distress messaging with GPS coordinates
  • Asset tracking Sensor-event notification
