Sierra Airlink LS300 User guide

Due to the nature of wireless communications, transmission and reception of data
can never be guaranteed. Data may be delayed, corrupted (i.e., have errors) or be
totally lost. Although significant delays or losses of data are rare when wireless
devices such as the Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300 are used in a normal manner
with a well-constructed network, the Sierra Wireless LS300 should not be used in
situations where failure to transmit or receive data could result in damage of any
kind to the user or any other party, including but not limited to personal injury,
death, or loss of property. Sierra Wireless accepts no responsibility for damages
of any kind resulting from delays or errors in data transmitted or received using
the Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300, or for failure of the Sierra Wireless AirLink
LS300 to transmit or receive such data.
Do not operate the Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300 in areas where blasting is in
progress, where explosive atmospheres may be present, near medical
equipment, near life support equipment, or any equipment which may be
susceptible to any form of radio interference. In such areas, the Sierra Wireless
LS300 MUST BE POWERED OFF. The Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300 can
transmit signals that could interfere with this equipment.
Do not operate the Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300 in any aircraft, whether the
aircraft is on the ground or in flight. In aircraft, the Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300
MUST BE POWERED OFF. When operating, the Sierra Wireless AirLink LS300
can transmit signals that could interfere with various onboard systems.

There are several typical connection options for this pin:
Option 1 – If you want the device turned on and off when the engine is
turned on and off:
· Connect pin 3 to the ignition.
· In ALEOS, disable the Low Power Mode. (Default setting is disabled.)
Option 2 – If you power the device from the engine’s battery and you do not
want the device to drain it when the engine is turned off:
· Connect pin 3 to the ignition.
· In ALEOS, enable the Low Power Mode and set a time delay.
When the ignition is turned off, the device operates at full power for the programmed time delay. When it expires, the device switches to Low Power Mode
(consumes 35mA or less). The device resumes normal operation when the
ignition is turned on.
Option 3 – If you want the device to switch into low power mode when the
engine battery voltage drops below a certain value:
· Connect pin 3 to pin 1.
· In ALEOS, configure the Low Power Mode with a voltage level threshold.
The device operates normally until the battery voltage drops below the threshold value, triggering the Low Power Mode. The device resumes normal operation when the battery voltage rises above the threshold value.
Option 4 – If you use a separate battery other than the engine’s for device
power, (such as in an ambulance or other application that has a stand-alone
battery power system) but it isn't connected to an ignition or an on/off
switch, and you do not want the battery drained:
· Connect pin 3 to pin 1.
· In ALEOS, configure the Low Power Mode with a voltage level threshold.
The device operates normally until the battery voltage drops below the threshold value, triggering the Low Power Mode. The device resumes normal operation when the battery voltage rises above the threshold value.
Option 5 – If you have an installation where the device uses line power such
as in a store or a remote site where power saving isn’t needed:
· Use the Sierra Wireless AC adapter or connect pin 3 to pin 1.

This pin is a digital input/output or an analog voltage input (green wire on DC
cable).
Pin 4:
•
Monitors inputs and outputs
•
Drives a relay
It has a maximum rating of 30V and 150mA sink current. The pin is user
programmed. Configuration instructions along with other information on how to
use it are given in the ALEOS Configuration User Guide.
One way to use pin 4 is with events reporting. In ALEOS you:
1. Create an Event. This triggers the device to act when it sees a specific input.
For example, you can tell the device to do something when the pin (called
digital input 1 in ALEOS) sees a digital 1. This could be when a door is
opened, activating a switch attached to it.
2. Specify an Action. These are instructions the device performs when it sees
an event. For example, an email could be sent to security, saying the door is
open, giving the time, location and other information.
There are several typical uses for Pin 4:
As a digital input it monitors a switch, using its opening or closing to record
events or monitoring external voltages up to 30VDC. For example, you could
use it to measure the voltage on a 24VDC light bulb and have the device
react when it turns on
•
Ö
When the switch, or input voltage is:
· Open (or at 3.3VDC to 30VDC) – It is read as a digital input=1.
· Closed (or lower than 3.3VDC) – it is read as a digital input=0.

As a digital output, it can trigger an alarm, siren, door lock or opens a valve
or a switch. Pin 4 is an open collector transistor output normally at 3.3VDC.
When triggered, it is pulled to ground. The initial state of the digital output
when the device is rebooted is configurable in ALEOS.

As an analog voltage input, it detects inputs of 0–30VDC across this pin to
ground. When used with a converter to transform values into voltages, it
monitors measurements like temperatures, pressures or the volume of liquid
in a container. ALEOS can transform these voltages into meaningful values.
In ALEOS, events reporting tells the device to perform an action when a
specified voltage is detected.

We recommend that the bracket should be connected to ground, which can be
the battery or power source negative terminal. This provides protection from
electrostatic discharges. Do this by connecting a grounding strap under one of the
mounting bracket screws.
Upon receiving power, the device automatically starts as shown by the flashing
LEDs. If it does not turn on, see that the:
•
Power connector is plugged in
•
Power cable is connected to power (line or battery power)
•
Power is turned on or that the battery is fully charged
•
Ignition Sense (pin 3) is connected to the battery or power source (see Power
Connector Description on page 15 for details)
After the initial power up, to see if the device is properly connected and operating
correctly:
1. In the laptop connected to the device, open a web browser.
2. In the browser’s address bar, enter the IP address:
http://192.168.13.31:9191.
