The SAILOR SC4000 Iridium system works through the Iridium satellite system, which consists of 66 cross-linked low earth orbit satellites with truly global coverage. The SAILOR SC4000 Iridium system is convenient for all types of vessels needing voice and small amount of data communication.
Ship to office communication
The key to low cost communication between vessels and office is to have a direct Iridium-Iridium connection. The home based Iridium System is connected to the company PABX, making it possible to connect the Iridium system to standard telephones.
With one single SIM card and a SAILOR SC4000 Iridium system, vessels can have both a traditional subscription service and a prepaid service on Iridium. The traditional subscription can be used for business matters, while the crew can benefit from the prepaid service with no administration cost for personal calls.
The basic system
The compact SAILOR SC4000 Iridium system consists of only three units: the SA4110 antenna, the ST4120 transceiver and the SC4150 intelligent handset. The intelligent handset is a combined handset and control unit. The system can be operated with up to four handset making it possible to use anywhere on board.
