ASE docking stations enhance and protect the Iridium 9555 satellite phone through intelligent software and hardware management. The DK050 provides local usage using the 9555 speaker phone or a corded intelligent handset (purchased separately).
Intelligent features include advanced tone management to provide the operator with system status and “smart dialing”, which eliminates confusion when country code variations are involved. Other intelligent hardware and software features include power on and power down management and USB connection for data transfers.
ASE docking stations also support live docking and undocking with bright illuminated status icons to show calling progress, satellites in view, and data transmissions. There is even a status icon to indicate when the Iridium 9555 is not properly docked. ASE docking stations provide a secure locking mechanism and protect the Iridium 9555, yet the phone can be removed almost instantly for situations that require “grab-and-go” scenarios.
How it Works
Bring your satellite communications indoors with the ASE docking station. Once connected to an Iridium antenna with line-of-sight to the satellite constellation, you are ready to send and receive voice and data using your docked Iridium 9555.
The ASE DK050 Docking Station can be used with the 9555 speaker-phone – or with the corded intelligent handset (purchased separately).
Installation is simple because the ASE docking station has all the advanced circuitry integrated into the single-piece docking cradle. Mount the dock, connect the antenna, dock your 9555, and you are done.
For marine vessels, a common installation involves installing the docking station near the bridge with the corded intelligent handset in close proximity to the captain. The corded handset can be cabled up to 6 meters away from the docking station to minimize the equipment footprint on valuable bridge space (contact ASE for cabling diagrams).
