Campbell Scientific supports satellite telemetry through the Iridium, GOES, Argos, and Meteosat systems. Satellite telemetry may also be possible using other satellite systems; contact the factory for details.
Satellite telemetry offers an alternative for remote locations where phone lines or RF systems are impractical. Communication is achieved by interfacing a datalogger to a satellite transmitter, which transmits the data from the field site to a receiving station.
Transmitters, antennas, interface cables and software, as well as system considerations (e.g., coverage available, transmit windows, fees, and restrictions) vary between satellite systems. Contact the governing body for further details, limitations, or restrictions:
