Iridium 9602

The Iridium 9602 provides global data communications for M2M applications. The small size, low-cost and ease of integration make the Iridium 9602 ideal for solutions such as equipment monitoring, automatic vehicle location, and asset tracking applications.

The 9602 can be purchased as a core module for integration into turn-key M2M systems or as a packaged unit with it’s own enclosure for ease of connectivity.

The Iridium 9602 operates on Iridium’s Short Burst Data Service and provides:

    • Global coverage
    • Small form factor
    • Low power consumption
    • Mobile Originated messages: up to 340 bytes
    • Mobile Terminated messages: up to 270 bytes
    • Low latency: less than 1 minute
    • Integration with omni-directional Iridium and GPS antennas

How It Works

The Iridium 9602 is a single-board core transceiver provided as a ‘black box,’ with all device interfaces provided by a single multi-pin interface connector and antenna connectors. The product only provides the core transceiver. All other end user Field Application functions such as GPS, microprocessor-based logic control, digital and analog inputs, digital and analog input/output, power supply and antenna must be provided by the solution developer. The device interface across the user connector consists of a serial-data interface, DC power input, network available output and a power on/off control line.
