How to Use SolSat 5 Satellite Telemetry

SolSat 5 batteries are charged by the built-in solar panel or by using the 2-pin Bulgin power connection. An additional solar panel can be connected to prolong the battery life.

Interfacing with the SolSat 5 is simple and intuitive using the built-in Wi-Fi App on any smart device or laptop. The app allows you to view, schedule and configure your remote monitoring system wirelessly from your browser.

Data is transmitted using the TextAnywhere two-way global satellite messaging service. TextAnywhere also allows you to text or email through the Wi-Fi App, providing convenience and safety when at remote sites.

The SolSat 5 is set up with a data plan based on your needs – sampling rate to collect data from the connected datalogger, and a report rate to send data via satellite transmission. You can also get daily max/min reports. High or low level alarms can be set for the datalogger.

Data logs are sent to a secure website portal for storage, viewing or export; the website can also be used for project and alarm management. You can also download data logs from a SolSat 5 using the Wi-Fi App.

If more detailed data is desired, the Solinst datalogger can be programmed to record independently in its internal memory.
