SEA 9705 GSM / GPS Communication Module

for Compact RIO or R-Series Expansion 

Order Number 60000067

SEA cRIO 9705 Mobile modules offer solutions for measurement and supervision applications, which can not be connected to data networks otherwise. The modules allow to control and monitor not accessible and mobile measurement systems remotely by mobile telephone networks.

For exact position determination or time information additionally a high sense 50 channel GPS receiver is available. Distributed systems can be precisely time synchronized by absolute timing information or relative PPS sync pulses.

Please note:
(2G) module must not be operated in the U.S. American network AT & T. Instead, a 3G module must be used.
This module can not be used with National Instruments CompactDAQ. The module does not support (W)-CDMA)


cRIO Combo module with combined GPS and GSM functionality. Supports worldwide data transfer with multi-band technology via GPRS and EDGE protocol with the following frequencies: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz. SMA antenna connector for GSM. SIM card reader with lock mechanism. Module supplies accurate time and position data via the build in 50-channel GPS receiver with a programmable update rate of up to 4Hz. The module supplies a PPS pulse output (TTL) via a front panel connector, but can also route the PPS signal to the backplane.
