How does it work?
YB3i uses the Iridium Satellite network. Specifically, it uses an Iridium service called ‘Short Burst Data’ (SBD). At the heart of YB3i is an Iridium 9602 modem.
How can I mount the YB3i?
The YB3i can be mounted in a variety of ways. The simplest way is to purchase our optional Rail Mount (available in the shop), which allows the unit to be easily mounted to a rail or pole. The unit can also be stuck down flat, in ceiling voids for example, using high-strength velcro on the flat base. Lastly, it has a set of 4 recessed M5 bolt holes on the base. You can use these to secure the unit using your own mounting solution, by bolting through a plate or hull.
