The arrangement gives customers in Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom access to engineers Astrocast’s Satellite IoT (SatIoT) technology.
A provider of nanosatellite Internet of Things networks, Astrocast, and Mouser have announced a new distribution relationship. The business runs a global nanosatellite Internet of Things network that offers services for smart infrastructure, agriculture, maritime, the environment, and utilities. Using their Astronode S module, businesses may use the Astrocast network to track, monitor, and communicate with remote assets via satellite. The surface mount satellite communication module features a small form factor and a serial interface. The device is great for highly integrated, battery-powered IoT systems since it is optimised for low-energy operation. For up to ten years on a single battery, the module enables the monitoring and control of gadgets with bidirectional satellite connection.
The Astronode Patch antenna, a miniature antenna created for communication with its IoT satellites in LEO, is additionally offered. The antenna is produced on a high-permittivity ceramic substrate, which reduces the antenna’s footprint while maintaining good RF performance at the network’s L band operating frequencies. Due to the antenna’s incredibly low profile, installation and device integration are seamless.
A authorised, ready-to-install industrial satellite communication system called the Astronode S+, based on the Astronode S and an Astronode Patch antenna, will also be offered by the business. The entire Astronode S digital interface or RS232, both of which are accessible on the industrial-grade board-to-cable connector, can be used by the Astronode S+ to rapidly and easily connect to applications. Electronic and RF design requires no resources, which speeds up time to market. The tiny physical size of this gadget makes discrete deployments possible.
