First UseBefore applying power to the router, connect all the components that you need for your applications.Do not run the router without an antenna connected to the main antenna connector as the energy from the transmission is effectively reflected by the open end and can damage the equipment.


Use an SMA connector to connect the antennas to the router, see the figure below. Connect the main antenna to the ANT connector. The second diversity antenna can be connected to the DIV connector to improve the quality and reliability of a wireless link.

SIM Card

The SIM card reader for one or two, depending on the product type, Micro SIM cards (3FF with size of 15.0 x 12.0 x 0.76 mm) is located on the right panel of the router under a metal cover. If you intend to use this device to communicate over a cellular network, please place an activated data-provisioned SIM card into the SIM card reader. Push your SIM card into the SIM slot until it clicks into place.Disconnect the router from the power supply before handling the SIM card.


The router requires an external DC power supply. The DC voltage required is between +9 and +48 V DC. The router has built-in protection against reverse polarity without signaling. Connect the power supply cable to the PWR connector on the left panel of the router (see the figure below) and tighten the locking screws.
