A Jubilee-clip, also known as a hose clamp, is used in conjunction with the supplied brackets when pole mounting the ORB-X1.


A certificate authority (CA) is a trusted entity that issues digital certificates, which are data files used to cryptographically link an entity with a public key. Certificate authorities are a critical part of the internet’s public key infrastructure (PKI) because they issue the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates that web browsers use to authenticate content sent from web servers.


American standard code for information interchange. Developed by American National Standards Institute (ANSI), it is the most common code used by computers to translate text (letters, numbers, and symbols) into a form that can be sent to, and understood by, other computers and devices such as modems and printers.


LTE Cat M1 is a low-power wide-area (LPWA) air interface that lets you connect IoT and M2M devices with medium data rate requirements (375 kb/s upload and download speeds in half duplex mode). It enables longer battery lifecycles and greater in-building range, as compared to standard cellular technologies such as 2G, 3G, or LTE Cat 1

3G & 4G

3G was the first “high speed” cellular network, and is a name that refers to a number of technologies that meet IMT-2000 standards. 4G is the generation of cellular standards that followed 3G, and is what most people use today for mobile cellular data. You can use 3G and 4G for IoT devices, but the application needs a constant power source or must be able to be recharged regularly.


Modbus RTU is an open, serial (RS-232 or RS-485) protocol derived from the Master/Slave architecture. It is a widely accepted protocol due to its ease of use and reliability. Modbus RTU is widely used within Building Management Systems (BMS) and Industrial Automation Systems (IAS). This wide acceptance is due in large part to MODBUS RTU’s ease of use.


JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a standard text-based format for representing structured data based on JavaScript object syntax. It is commonly used for transmitting data in web applications (e.g., sending some data from the server to the client, so it can be displayed on a web page, or vice versa).


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a physical sciences laboratory, and a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce. Its mission is to promote innovation and industrial competitiveness. NIST’s activities are organized into laboratory programs that include nanoscale science and technology, engineering, information technology, neutron research, material measurement, and physical measurement.


A lithium polymer battery, or more correctly lithium-ion polymer battery (abbreviated as LiPo), is a rechargeable battery of lithium-ion technology using a polymer electrolyte instead of a liquid electrolyte.
