Setup Iridium Logger Through CONNECT

Satellite/Iridium transmission is more expensive than other traditional forms of communication (e.g., cellular, radio, Wi-Fi). Therefore, it is imperative that the end-user only transmit the most useful diagnostic and sensor parameters. The CONNECT software can set these parameters and their log/transmission interval before the data logger transfers data to the web. Thus, outlining the proper […]

X2 Selective Data Upload

The X2 is capable of logging data to its internal memory at a certain log interval but transmitting it at a different interval. This feature is useful for reducing the system’s data usage and telemetry on-time (thereby reducing the power consumption) but still monitoring system status remotely. During site visits, users can then periodically access […]

Iridium Transmission Delay

Compared to data loggers utilizing cellular, radio, or Wi-Fi telemetry, Iridium transmission systems have an additional step in the data upload process which may cause a delay in the time it takes from the logger recording a measurement to data being posted on WQData LIVE. Data messages transmitted from the logger’s satellite modem are first […]
