Variants

Product Name Variant Description
Q100 2011-01 0x01 Q100 (deprecated)
MT MeshConnect 2011-02 0x02 Q150

Antennas

2,4 GHz Bluetooth antenna is used for all variants. All antennas have the same SMA connector on gateway. The positions of LTE and Bluetooth antenna should not be swapped as both LTE and Bluetooth performance will be severely reduced.

BLE antenna

A long BLE antenna.

LTE antenna

A short LTE antenna.

GPS/GNSS antenna

A GPS/GNSS antenna with a cable.

MT MeshConnect 2011-A

Variant 0x02 uses two long antennas - Bluetooth and NA (not applicable). RJ45 port, which is located closer to the USB ports, needs to be used for LAN/DHCP.

MT MeshConnect 2011-B

Variant 0x03 has two antennas - one short LTE and one long Bluetooth.

MT MeshConnect 2011-C

Variant 0x04 has three antennas - one short LTE, one long Bluetooth and GPS/GNSS with a cable.

LTE

Device variants with LTE will report cellular network information using 91.10 - Cellular Network Information. This information can be used to approximately position the device, for example.

The modem status is sampled every 60 seconds.

GPS

Device variants with GPS will report position using property 91.20 - Geographic Point Location. If it is impossible to get a position/lock, a NULL value is reported.

The values for latitude and longitude have a precision of 4 decimal places (~11 meters).

Static IP

For devices with Ethernet it is possible to set static IP address etc. for the ethernet interface using property 91.30. Be careful when setting this, since you may not be able to reach the device if not set correctly.

We strongly recommend not changing this property. The device will use DHCP by default.

To disable static IP and use DHCP (default), write NULL (empty dictionary/array) to property 91.30.

Note

The gateway will reboot after writing to 91.30.
