Iridium Edge Solar™

Track Your Tender Or Boat With Iridium Edge Solar

  • Iridium Edge Solar™ Battery-Powered Tracker -  Long-Lasting, Solar-Powered GPS Tracker

    The new Iridium Edge Solar is designed to be a simple, low-cost, solar-based tracking device. Connectivity is delivered through the fully secure global Iridium Satellite Network and features 2-way communication and Bluetooth low-energy connectivity. You can attach the Solar Edge GPS tracker to a boat, tender, vehicle or other asset and then forget. Regular GPS tracking reports would then be sent from the unit, with the built-in solar panel recharging the internal battery even when there is not much sunlight by combining the long-life solar power delivered with the dependability of a battery backup.

    The Iridium Edge® Solar is a standalone, programmable, solar-powered Short Burst Data (SBD®) device that offers real-time GPS tracking, local wireless sensors, and communication capabilities over Bluetooth. The product's self-charging requires minimal maintenance, and it is designed to be used in tough environments for mobile or fixed asset monitoring. It supports real-time GPS tracking, local wireless sensors, and communication capabilities over Bluetooth.

    Its backup battery will support reporting up to twice daily for five years. The Iridium Edge Solar is for customers who need a simple tracking device that they can set and forget. Therefore, if you need a simple autonomous tracker with global coverage and transmitting every few hours, this could be exactly what you need.

    Benefits Of Tracking Mining Assets With GPS Trackers

    Highly Mobile: The Iridium satellite network provides communications and connectivity for mobile applications like oil and gas, transportation, agriculture, and surface mining anywhere on the planet, allowing tracking and monitoring of vehicles and assets operating in remote areas.

    Reliable Coverage: Devices using the Iridium satellite network connect to a constellation of 66 Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) mobile satellites that provide service anywhere on the planet.

    Low Latency: The Iridium satellites in low-Earth orbit (~800 km) enable signals to travel in 1/40 the time compared to geostationary satellites (36,000 km), resulting in low-latency, always-on connections ideal for Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.

    Staff Tip: Iridium Edge Solar Global Satellite Asset Tracker requires a paid subscription.
