Product Description The Multi‐Tech MultiModem® Cell cellular modems are ready‐to‐deploy, standalone modems that provide wireless data communication and integrate seamlessly with virtually any application. The MultiModem Cell cellular modem is based on industry‐standard open interface and uses Multi‐Tech’s Universal Socket design. The Cell modem is designed with a quad‐band GSM/GPRS/HSPA network. The modems include a USB interface. If desired, you can mount the modem on a flat surface, such as a desktop or panel. Model MTCBA‐H3‐U1 Description The MTCBA‐H3‐U1 wireless modem offers fast cellular data speeds by using HSPA technology. The modem is equipped with quad‐band technology and can be used on all existing GSM networks, and most HSPA networks. Related Documentation MultiModem MTCBA­H3­U1 Use the HSPA‐H3 AT commands to configure the MTCBA‐H3‐U1 modem. These commands are documented in the HSPA‐H3 AT Commands Reference Guide part number S000505x. Safety General Safety The modem is designed for and intended to be used in fixed and mobile applications. “Fixed” means that the device is physically secured at one location and is not able to be easily moved to another location. “Mobile” means that the device is designed to be used in other than fixed locations. Caution: Maintain a separation distance of at least 20 cm (8 inches) between the transmitter’s antenna and the body of the user or nearby persons. The Modem is not designed for or intended to be used in portable applications within 20 cm (8 inches) of the body of the user. RF Interference Issues It is important to follow any special regulations regarding the use of radio equipment due in particular to the possibility of radio frequency, RF, interference. Please follow the safety advice given below carefully. ●
Switch OFF your MultiModem when in an aircraft. The use of cellular telephones in an aircraft may endanger the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the cellular network and is illegal. Failure to observe this instruction may lead to suspension or denial of cellular telephone services to the offender, or legal action or both. Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. MultiModem Cell User Guide 5 Chapter 1 – Product Description and Specifications ●
Switch OFF your MultiModem when around gasoline or diesel‐fuel pumps and before filling your vehicle with fuel. ●
Switch OFF your MultiModem in hospitals and any other place where medical equipment may be in use. ●
Respect restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, chemical plants or where blasting operations are in progress. ●
There may be a hazard associated with the operation of your MultiModem close to inadequately protected personal medical devices such as hearing aids and pacemakers. Consult the manufacturers of the medical device to determine if it is adequately protected. ●
Operation of your MultiModem close to other electronic equipment may also cause interference if the equipment is inadequately protected. Observe any warning signs and manufacturers’ recommendations. Vehicle Safety ●
Do not use your MultiModem while driving. ●
Respect national regulations on the use of cellular telephones in vehicles. Road safety always comes first. ●
If incorrectly installed in a vehicle, the operation of MultiModem telephone could interfere with the correct functioning of vehicle electronics. To avoid such problems, be sure that qualified personnel have performed the installation. Verification of the protection of vehicle electronics should be part of the installation. ●
The use of an alert device to operate a vehicle’s lights or horn on public roads is not permitted. Maintenance of the Wireless MultiModem Your wireless MultiModem is the product of advanced engineering, design, and craftsmanship. Treat it with care. The suggestions that follow help ensure you can enjoy this product for many years. ●

Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. MultiModem Cell User Guide Appendix C – Environmental
Information
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Statement WEEE Directive The WEEE Directive places an obligation on EU‐based manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and importers to take‐back electronics products at the end of their useful life. A sister directive, ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) complements the WEEE Directive by banning the presence of specific hazardous substances in the products at the design phase. The WEEE Directive covers all Multi‐Tech products imported into the EU as of August 13, 2005. EU‐based manufacturers, distributors, retailers and importers are obliged to finance the costs of recovery from municipal collection points, reuse, and recycling of specified percentages per the WEEE requirements. Instructions for Disposal of WEEE by Users in the European Union The symbol shown below is on the product or on its packaging, which indicates that this product must not be disposed of with other waste. Instead, it is the user’s responsibility to dispose of their waste equipment by handing it over to a designated collection point for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The separate collection and recycling of your waste equipment at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that it is recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For more information about where you can drop off your waste equipment for recycling, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or where you purchased the product.

MultiModem Cell User Guide 23 Appendix C – Environmental Information REACH Statement Registration of Substances: After careful review of the legislation and specifically the definition of an “article” as defined in EC Regulation 1907/2006, Title II, Chapter 1, Article 7.1(a)(b), it is our current view Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. products would be considered as “articles”. In light of the definition in § 7.1(b) which requires registration of an article only if it contains a regulated substance that “is intended to be released under normal or reasonable foreseeable conditions of use,” our analysis is that Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. products constitute nonregisterable articles for their intended and anticipated use. Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Per the candidate list of Substances of Very high Concern (SVHC) published October 28, 2008 we have reviewed these substances and certify the Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. products are compliant per the EU “REACH” requirements of less than 0.1% (w/w) for each substance. If new SVHC candidates are published by the European Chemicals Agency, and relevant substances have been confirmed, that exceeds greater than 0.1% (w/w), Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. will provide updated compliance status. Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. also declares it has been duly diligent in ensuring that the products supplied are compliant through a formalized process which includes collection and validation of materials declarations and selective materials analysis where appropriate. This data is controlled as a part of a formal quality system and will be made available upon request. Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc. Certificate of Compliance 2011/65/EU Multi‐Tech Systems confirms that its embedded products comply with the chemical concentration limitations set forth in the directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment ‐ RoHS) These Multi‐Tech products do not contain the following banned chemicals1: ●
Lead, [Pb] < 1000 PPM ●
Mercury, [Hg] < 1000 PPM ●
Hexavalent Chromium, [Cr+6] < 1000 PPM ●
Cadmium, [Cd] < 100 PPM ●
Polybrominated Biphenyl, [PBB] < 1000 PPM ●
Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether, [PBDE] < 1000 PPM Environmental considerations: ●
Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) =1 Maximum Soldering temperature = 260C (in SMT reflow oven) 1Lead usage in some components is exempted by the following RoHS annex, therefore higher lead concentration would be found in some modules (>1000 PPM); –Resistors containing lead in a glass or ceramic matrix compound. 24 Multi‐Tech Systems, Inc.
