The iBCN is the next-generation of MetOcean Telematics’ NOVATECH™ satellite beacons, designed for tracking and locating your assets up to full ocean depth (12,000m). The self-contained submersible beacons use the bi-directional capabilities of the Iridium® satellite telemetry system, allowing the end user to receive real-time GPS location of their asset and also change and send various reporting parameters to the beacon.
The real advantage of the iBCN technology is that if your asset surfaces unexpectedly, and it is outside of typical RF range, the Iridium® beacon (upon surfacing) will immediately capture a GPS position and transmit these coordinates, in near real-time, to a destination of your choice. Giving you peace of mind no matter where you are in the world.
Designed to meet unique deployment needs, the iBCN product line offers five battery housing options: self-contained, remote head, OEM, and extended battery life with the option of lithium or alkaline batteries. The complete product portfolio includes: iBCN-OEM, iBCN, iBCN-3, iBCN-7, iBCN-RH, and iBCN-RH2.
