The Symphonie iPackGPS | LTE-VZW is an internet-enabled communications and autonomous power module for Symphonie series data loggers. Utilizing a specialized cellular modem that connects your data logger to the internet through Verizon's 4G LTE cellular network (USA only), iPackGPS delivers measurement data from the field to your desktop.

SYMPHONIEPRO

When used with the SymphoniePRO® Data Logger, iPackGPS enables remote bi-directional communication with the SymphoniePRO Desktop Application using our MetLink protocol in addition to the traditional SMTP email data delivery path. MetLink connections can be initiated either by the logger or the SymphoniePRO Desktop Application, allowing you to connect remotely as needed.

Flexible scheduling options and support for multiple data delivery methods provide redundant paths for the transfer of critical resource data. Once established, remote MetLink connection sessions provide full access to the data logger and iPack, including:

  • Automated or manual download of data files (alternative to SMTP email)
  • Live data viewing for site health checks
  • Configuration settings changes in the data logger or iPack
  • Firmware upgrades to the data logger or iPack

See the SymphoniePRO Data Logger product page and user manual for more details. Note: iPackGPS units require a firmware upgrade for compatibility with the SymphoniePRO Data Logger.

DATA LOGGER CONNECTION

iPackGPS attaches to a port located on the back of your Symphonie series data logger. The iPackGPS and the data logger are then secured to a Symphonie shelter box using four screws.

POWER SUPPLY

The iPackGPS | LTE-VZW contains one rechargeable 12 V sealed lead-acid battery and a recharging circuit. The battery recharging circuit is designed for use with an external 15W PV panel that connects to terminals on the side of the iPackGPS. Terminals for an external power system are also available. This configuration keeps the internal batteries continuously charged—ensuring reliable data logging and transfer operations.

CELLULAR ANTENNA

Each iPackGPS | LTE-VZW ships with an omnidirectional antenna appropriate for sites where a cellular tower is nearby. If a different antenna solution is required, please contact us.

ACCOUNTS AND PROGRAMMING

The iPackGPS | LTE-VZW requires Verizon Wireless's 4G LTE data service and an Internet Service Provider (ISP) account to function properly. GSM and ISP accounts need to be obtained from the provider of your choice, and the required settings for the accounts should be programmed into the Symphonie iPackGPS prior to use.
