Sutron SatLink 3 XMTR
The SL3-XMTR-1 Transmitter offers a reliable and low-cost method of adding Meteosat / GOES satellite transmission capability to almost any Data Logger. SL3-XMTR transmits the buffer contents of a data logger to one of many Environmental Satellites for which it is certified.
Different operating modes are available ranging from logger control of transmitter setup to scheduling the logger to send a buffer to the transmitter using RS-232 or USB connections.
The Transmitter automatically selects the proper RF output power based on antenna selection made by the user. This Transmitter supports the
NESDIS GOES 300 and 1200 bps formats, METEOSAT (MSG 2nd Gen) 100 bps and HRDCP 1200 bps, as well as formats of other Environmental Satellites orbiting the globe. The Transmitter itself is built upon Sutron’s 35-year legacy of rugged and reliable Satellite Transmitters. The XMTR provides the user with the highest reliability and leading performance metrics coupled with very flexible programming including scheduled and alarm transmissions.

Sutron SatLink XMTR with OTT netDL Datalogger
Pairing the Sutron SatLink3 (SL3) XMTR Transmitter with an OTT netDL 500 / 1000 enables transmission of the OTT netDL datalogger buffer to Meteosat. Different operating modes are available ranging from logger control of transmitter setup to scheduling the logger to send a buffer to the transmitter using RS-232 or USB connections. The transmitter automatically selects the proper RF output power based on antenna selection made by the user. The SL3 XMTR Transmitter supports the Meteosat 100 and 1200 bps format and formats of other Environmental Satellites orbiting the globe, including GOES.
Sutron SatLink Logger Transmitter
The SatLink3 multi-communication logging transmitter is an integrated solution providing a cost-effective way to measure, log, calculate and transmit data from remote locations around the world. SL3 has built-in support for nearly all meteorological satellites including GOES, METEOSAT, INSAT and MTSAT for operation anywhere. Most often the SL3 is connected to sensors and transmits data on a user-set schedule, the Satlink3 has options for redundant and two-way communication using cellular and Iridium communications. Satlink3 builds upon Sutron’s 35 years’ experience providing reliable satellite communications.
