View Glossary Index

In telecommunications, RS-232 is a standard for serial communication transmission of data. It formally defines the signals connecting between a DTE (data terminal equipment) such as a computer terminal, and a DCE (data circuit-terminating equipment, originally defined as data communication equipment), such as a modem. The RS-232 standard is commonly used in computer serial ports. The standard defines the electrical characteristics and timing of signals, the meaning of signals, and the physical size and pinout of connectors. The current version of the standard is TIA-232-F Interface Between Data Terminal Equipment and Data Circuit-Terminating Equipment Employing Serial Binary Data Interchange, issued in 1997.

GSatMicro OEM

The GSatMicro OEM terminal gives you full control of a telemetry and fleet platform, anywhere on the globe via the Iridium network.

Absolutely everything you need is built in and very simple to interface to with a multitude of connectivity options. Choose the building blocks you need from a fully independent solution with custom behaviors (think of remote command/control of drones), or a subcomponent of another computer system for expanding capabilities of your existing product line (remote data collection systems).

Starting with an engineering challenge to design the smallest possible satellite tracking device, the GSatMicro OEM not only delivers, it includes extremely advanced functionality in an astonishingly small package. Every component of the GSatMicro was designed to fit into a dense vertical stack. Satellite enable your projects that you never thought could be. We also included the latest antenna technology to utilize a single antenna for Iridium and GPS so you have a single antenna to install for telemetry and satellite connectivity.

Sensors are simple, why are they so complicated to connect?

Sensors all have a basic function of measuring something, and they have to output that data in some computer readable format. This is the point where there are so many options and limitations but I will call them "interfaces". The most popular interfaces are digital, analog voltage, analog current, 1-Wire, RS232, RS485, CAN bus, and Bluetooth/ANT. Some of these interfaces can support multiple sensors per connector by daisy chaining or unique...

MCG-101

An intelligent PBX solution using Iridium to operate as a telephone, Internet portal, GPS device and SMS terminal.

The MCG-101 was designed to provide the most powerful and versatile Iridium communications system to offices, remote locations, aircraft, and maritime. The system provides an intelligent solution using the Iridium satellite network to operate as a telephone, internet gateway, intelligent GPS device, send/receive SMS, and attach to other devices through RS232 and ethernet.

The MCG-101 was designed using 100% digital technology. This enables the system to provide clear, true to life audio, and eliminates any internal echo problems. For external interface portions of the system, such an analog POTS telephone, echo cancellation is performed by a hardware echo canceler.

Overall, the MCG-101 is the ultimate Iridium telecommunications system available to fulfill the needs and demands of today’s business, marine, and military needs.
