Swap to an outdoor enclosure with this quick and simple setup guide.

Every gateway ships with an array of accessories needed for your helium deployment, but most importantly, an outdoor enclosure.

These outdoor enclosures are tightly sealed with rubber gaskets to protect them from all that the elements may throw at them. The cable pass-throughs are designed with rubber knobs that can be custom fit to your cables, ensuring you’re covered for any setup. We’ve even gone the extra step of coating the PCB to protect against any moisture, just in case.

IMPORTANT: When mounting gateways outdoors, always ensure the ports/cable pass-throughs are pointed down toward the ground.


DO IT ONCE: The Indoor to Outdoor enclosure transfer is generally easier than Outdoor to Indoor, so ensure you only make this transfer if you intend on using the Outdoor Enclosure.



Tools

  • Small Phillips/cross screwdriver
  • Pliers
  • Scissors
  • Plastic Pry Bary (recommended)


Installation Tips

  • A plastic pry bar common with electrical repair kits can be very helpful in the transfer process

  • When handling, pushing, or pulling the board, always do so by touching the green PCB directly. Avoid touching or applying pressure to components unless the video directs you to do so

  • DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE BOARD! Use caution, but our electronic boards are built strong, and some of the steps require firm pressure/force



Operating Temperatures


COLD: The SyncroBit HNT Gateway can operate at temperatures as low as -40C.

Due to the heat produced by the gateway while operating, it is unlikely that cold would ever be a limiting factor.


HEAT: The SyncroBit HNT Gateway can operate at temperatures up to +85C. 

Due to the heat produced by the gateway while operating, care should be taken in warm climates to ensure the gateway does not overheat. Ensuring the gateway is in shade is generally recommended. The gateway's temperature can be monitored in real-time through the local dashboard, DashBit.
