Rock Seven - RockBLOCK+
The RockBLOCK+ 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 control your robot in the middle of the desert? Perhaps you need to communicate in an emergency, when other networks might not be available? RockBLOCK+ can help you.
How it Works
The RockBLOCK+ has a built-in power regulator and can accept between 9-30v DC. At the heart of RockBLOCK is an Iridium 9602 modem. The RockBLOCK+ hosts the 9602 and provides it with an antenna, and its power supply requirements. It exposes the modem’s serial interface via RS-232.
