The Telemetry Hub is housed in a rugged IP67 enclosure designed for direct field deployment. Complete communications, control and instrumentation or media solutions are packaged in a single unit. Powered by an internal Lithium Ion battery, with a built in solar charge regulator. The Telemetry Hub has a multiprocessor architecture, where the main CPU is a 32 bit, three stage, pipelined ARM Cortex M3 processor with a nested vectored interrupt controller and a high performance DMA controller.
The Telemetry Hub is designed to conserve power when not active and manage activity based on battery charge level. The Telemetry Hub can be fitted with a smart phone sized graphical LCD touchscreen to provide custom user interfaces. It is designed to be easy to open up and service at a basic level, (eg: changing a battery, SD or SIM card or replacing a circuit board.) External connections are made to the Telemetry Hub via IP67 waterproof connectors.
