IridiumLink 2-Way Logging Transmitter

Overview

Sutron’s IridiumLink Datalogger and transceiver provides simple telemetry anywhere. IridiumLink has two primary purposes:

  • To Collect and Store Data from Meteorological and Hydrological Sensors
  • To Transmit that Data Wirelessly to a Central System, Website, or Other Receiving Station

IridiumLink products are designed to operate in a wide range of applications including:

  • Surface Water Level, Flow and Quality Monitoring
  • Groundwater Level and Quality Networks
  • Geotechnical Sensing
  • Weather Observation
  • Flood Warning
  • Oceanic Monitoring
  • Oil and Gas Production
  • Any Low-power, Remote Environmental Data Acquisition Project
