The Ultimate BEAM Docking Station for the Iridium Extreme 9575 Satellite Phone

The Iridium PotsDOCK Extreme (made by BEAM Communications), is a fully-loaded docking station for the Iridium Extreme 9575 satellite phone.

Boasting an array of extra features, this docking station can be used in various maritime, transportation or fixed-site applications and considerably extends the functionality of the 9575 handset.
Connect a Regular Telephone

The PotsDOCK Extreme allows the Iridium Extreme handset to be connected with a standard corded, cordless or DECT telephone handset, or a PABX system, to present standard ring, busy and dial tones like a normal phone network.

This is ideal when installing an Iridium satellite phone in a building/office environment because users can make and receive satellite phone calls on the standard desktop telephone—a more familiar user-interface than the Iridium Extreme handset.

The telephone cable can be run up to 2000ft (600m) from the docking station—perfect when installed in large office buildings and other facilities.
Bluetooth and Tracking

The PotsDOCK Extreme also has an inbuilt Bluetooth module so the user can have a complete hands-free telephone conversation over the Iridium satellite network. Having Bluetooth connectivity with the PotsDOCK Extreme also gives users the freedom to roam up to 33 feet (10 meters) from the dock.

The built-in Bluetooth module also offers intelligent tracking and alert reporting functionality. The alert and tracking module can be configured to support periodic polling or emergency alert reporting. These features are especially useful in vehicular applications.

The PotsDOCK Extreme has a built-in GPS for pinpoint accuracy and tracking worldwide. Tracking and Alert Messages can be sent via SMS or Short Burst Data, if provisioned on the Iridium Extreme 9575 handset.
Use with a Privacy Handset

This Iridium Extreme docking station also supports the use of an optional compact BEAM Privacy Handset, which is a simple slim handset (no keypad) that can be attached next to the PotsDOCK and used for having private conversations when required.

The privacy handset is most suitable when this docking station is installed in your vehicle. You would conduct all dialing on the Iridium handset’s keypad (when inserted in the PotsDOCK) and then hold the privacy handset (like a normal telephone) to have a private conversation.

We recommend adding a privacy handset if you don’t plan to connect a standard corded/cordless telephone to this Iridium docking station.
Mounting Options

The Iridium Extreme PotsDOCK comes with a universal RAM mount.

Screw one of the included RAM ball-mounts to the back of the docking station. A short post connects the RAM ball-mount on docking station to another RAM ball-mount, which can be screwed onto virtually any flat surface.

This mount is adjustable to through a wide range of angles to accommodate different installation requirements.
Compatible With Many Iridium Products

The BEAM Iridium Extreme PotsDOCK is compatible with the Iridium 9575 Extreme satellite phone only. It is fitted with an TNC female antenna connector that will work with all “BEAM” and “Aero” branded Iridium passive and active external antennas.
