RockBLOCK Plus Satellite Communication Device: Stay Connected, No Matter Where Life Takes You!
🌍 Unparalleled Connectivity: Ever imagined sending messages from the middle of the ocean or controlling your robot in the most remote locations? With the RockBLOCK+PLUS Satellite IoT Device, you're not just thinking, you're achieving. Enjoy the freedom to send and receive messages from any spot on Earth with a clear view of the sky.
📡 Beyond Conventional Networks: Say goodbye to the constraints of WiFi and GSM. Whether it's an urgent call for help or you're transmitting crucial weather data, RockBLOCK+ is your unwavering ally, especially when other networks let you down.
🔌 Optimized Power Features: Powered by a robust built-in regulator, the RockBLOCK Plus efficiently operates on 9-30v DC, ensuring longer communication sessions without the constant need for recharging.
💡 Driven by the Best: At the core of this remarkable device is the Iridium 9602 modem, known for its stellar performance. And the best part? The RockBLOCK+PLUS not only houses the modem but doubles as its antenna and power supply. Plus, with the RS-232 interface, integration is seamless and straightforward.
Forget about the limitations of WiFi and GSM networks; this innovative gadget leverages the powerful Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) service. This ensures:
Low Latency: Swift data transmission, making sure your messages reach their destination quickly.
Energy Efficient: Designed to conserve power, it ensures longevity even in remote environments.
Cost-effective Ownership: Benefit from a device that prioritizes your pocket with its affordable maintenance.
Perfect for sending sensor data in concise bursts, the RockBLOCK Plus is your reliable partner for off-the-grid communication.

How to control the sleep pin? The sleep signal is internally pulled high on the RockBLOCK and RocKBLOCK+ products, so you can leave it disconnected if you want to leave the modem 'awake' all of the time. To turn 'off' the modem, pull the line to ground.
Unit refuses to give me data using the SBDRT command? If you are using the SBDRT command, and the modem appears to 'hang' when you issue the command, it is probably due to flow control configuration. The default state for the RockBLOCK and RockBLOCK+ units has flow control turned ON in the modem. When running in 3-wire serial mode, flow control should be turned OFF, which will ensure you get responses to your requests. Use the command AT&K0 at the start of your command sequence. This turns flow control off, and should solve the problem.
Added this to my setup on my boat, very nice piece of equipment. Apollo's service and support has really been the best, I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else.
