The 9602 SBD Voyager was developed to control the 9602 SBD transceiver, and incorporates several useful peripherals and interfaces to meet a wide range of applications. These peripherals include an industry-leading GPS, a 3-axis accelerometer, analog-to-digital inputs, digital I/O, an RS232 serial interface and on-board storage memory, all controlled by a powerful microprocessor preloaded with a highly configurable application that meets many application requirements, the simplest being a GPS tracking application, which allows track data to be viewed on a web interface with maps overlay. Weight as shown: 56g/2oz. Weight with antennas: 75g/2.6oz. Full tracking solution weight, with battery for 2200 transmitted positions: 170g/6oz*9602 SBD Transceiver Not Included.
What is the CPU type/speed?
8/16-bit RISC running at up to 32 MIPS (million instructions per second). It is the Atmel AVR XMega CPU.
What is the Type, dimensions of the GPS antenna recommended to be used with 9602?
We normally use an off-the-shelf active GPS antenna with dimensions of 25mm x 25mm x 8mm.
What is the length of the text message that can be sent by Iridium?
We can send up to 340 bytes per message, but we can burst multiple messages to support a much larger payload.
Are there any tricks to send binary data as a text message? If not, does 9602 support emailing a binary file (in addition to text messaging)?
The Voyager natively sends binary messages.
What is the Timer capability to wake up an external system and to correct the CPU clock using the GPS signals?
There is an onboard real-time clock on Voyager so it will wake up at specific intervals and correct its own clock using the GPS as a reference.
Are there any necessary contracts to use this device for Iridium communication?
Please download the Iridium SBD Service Agreement and return it when you want to activate your 9602 terminal.
How does Iridium route the SBD traffic? Do you have any guides on setting up our own Server application?
Please refer to the white paper from NAL Research that goes into details regarding the different options for SBD traffic management.
