Compulab IOT-GATE-IMX8PLUS 2031


Compulab IOT-GATE-IMX8PLUS 2031 is a gateway host. To work as a gateway for the Meshtech BLE network it needs to be paired with a USB BLE adapter, for example a Raytac MDBT50Q-RX 0040. Both Ethernet- and LTE-variants are available. Both variants can be powered by PoE or included 12V adapter.

This hardware is sourced from Compulab. See Compulab IOT-GATE-IMX8PLUS for hardware details.

  • Firmware Model Number: 0x2031
  • Downlinks: Up to 18

Normal Operation Procedure

Start by inserting a Raytac MDBT50Q-RX 0040 into the USB port. Make sure Raytac MDBT50Q-RX 0040 is not already configured. If you are unsure, you can always perform a factory reset of Raytac MDBT50Q-RX 0040 first. Apply power (PoE support in ETH2) by PoE or 12V power plug. Ethernet variant need to get IP/network settings by DHCP on the ethernet port. If it is LTE variant, or receives a valid setting where it can reach internet (and allowed out on port 8883) it will provision itself towards There you can log in, claim and activate it from your browser. Use Raytac MDBT50Q-RX 0040 MAC address when claiming it.

Product Name Variant Description
Compulab IOT-GATE-IMX8PLUS 2031-01 0x01 Ethernet
Compulab IOT-GATE-IMX8PLUS 2031-02 0x02 LTE


Device variants with LTE will report cellular network information using 0x9110 - Cellular Network Information. This information can be used to approximately position the device, for example.

The modem status is sampled every 60 seconds.


Device variants with GPS will report position using property 0x9120 - 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 0x9130. 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 0x9130.


The gateway will reboot after writing to 0x9130.
