Windcube® Communications | BGAN M2M Satellite
Count on worldwide, worry-free remote communications for your Windcube Vertical Profiler with the Windcube Communications | BGAN M2M Satellite.
The Windcube Communications | BGAN M2M Satellite is an internet-enabled communications system for the Windcube Vertical Profiler. Utilizing a BGAN M2M satellite module, this accessory connects your Windcube to the internet through Inmarsat’s global satellite network and delivers measurement data to your desktop. The Windcube Communications | BGAN M2M Satellite enables remote data delivery at sites without traditional cellular coverage, putting your Windcube data right at your fingertips, no matter where you are in the world.
All Windcube Communications | BGAN M2M Satellite systems are activated, configured, and tested before shipping from our facility to make installation as easy as possible once it reaches your site.
The BGAN antenna and a shelter box containing the other system components will be installed on a separate structure alongside the Windcube. The NRG 2.2m Tower provides the ideal mounting platform and is included in the standard kit. Galvanized steel tower components made to withstand the elements provide a strong foundation to support long-term, professional-grade resource assessment campaigns. The 2.2m Tower and other components are shippable via UPS, maintaining Windcube’s exceptional portability.
The Windcube Communications | BGAN M2M Satellite is compatible with all Windcubes after serial number WLS7-94. It is not compatible with older Windcube units.
Use of the Windcube Communication | BGAN M2M Satellite will not significantly affect total power use of a Windcube remote sensing system. A standard Windcube power supply that would be used with a cellular communications module will be sufficient.
