Incorporating the Artemis Module, Iridium 9603N Short Burst Data modem, u-blox ZOE-M8Q GNSS receiver, and a TE MS8607 PHT sensor, this compact tracker will allow you to do an incredible number of things that used to be very difficult.With a clear view of the sky, the Artemis Global Tracker (AGT) allows you to send and receive short data messages. It works anywhere in the world, including the polar regions, far beyond the reach of WiFi and GSM networks. Maybe you want to transmit pressure, temperature or humidity readings from the top of a mountain? Or use it to send data from a travelling balloon sat? Or use it to control your remote equipment out in the field.
At the heart of our product is the Arduino-compatible Artemis Module. With 1M flash and 384k RAM you'll have plenty of room for your code. The Artemis module runs at 48MHz with a 96MHz turbo mode available and with Bluetooth to boot! Of course we have included a Qwiic I2C connector so you can easily attach external sensors. You can also connect and control external devices like our Qwiic Relays remotely via Iridium messages. We have broken out the I2C and SPI pins too so you could add your own display and keypad should you want to.
The ZOE-M8Q allows the AGT to determine its location quickly and accurately with minimal current draw. We’ve connected the ZOE’s geofence pin to the Artemis so it can generate alerts automatically if the tracker is moved into or out of up to four geofenced areas. To save weight, the ZOE and Iridium modem share a single antenna.
The on-board MS8607 pressure, humidity and temperature sensor works down to -40C and 10mbar and so is ideally suited for use in challenging environments, including airborne applications. The Artemis can be configured to read the sensor frequently and send an alert message if any of the readings go above or below preset alarm limits.
