Beam - DataMODEM RST600B


The Beam DataMODEM RST600B utilizes the latest Iridium 9522B L-Band Transceiver module that provides global access to all of the Iridium data services through a single compact device.

RST600 is supplied with specific brackets and cables that allow the terminal to be mounted in a variety of installations. There is a robust mounting plate, or alternatively the transceiver module can be installed without the bracket for a more compact installation.

The terminal has an inbuilt power supply that supports a 5 – 32 VDC input and has a cable assembly that provides access to a standard RS232 D9 serial interface for ease of connection.
