MF 400 IoT Satellite Bridge

The MF 400 IoT Satellite Bridge provides network server connectivity for 100 remote LoRaWAN sensors via Inmarsat IsatData Pro (IDP) satellite terminal. The system runs from a single 80W solar panel and the battery backup capacity up to 2-3 days (depends on usage). The system runs an optimized protocol to ensure that airtime satellite costs per sensor are kept to a minimum. This makes the MF 400 IoT Satellite Bridge a stand-alone, low power & low-cost solution for adding satellite connectivity to your existing COTS LoRaWAN sensor devices.

Ease of installation

The system contains a helpful display that shows all important & operational metrics (incl. voltage, current, and battery capacity).
This allows the installer in the field to see in realtime that the solar panel is working and correctly charging the battery.

Innovative cabling design for the IDP terminal

An integrated power and data cable is securely attached to the MF 400 and allows the IDP to be connected up to 5m from the MF 400 to achieve optimal satellite reception.
No extra cabling or power components are required
MF 400 communicates with the terminal using AT commands
