Chapter 2: To get started
To detach the antenna (optional)
You have two options for using the EXPLORER 710 antenna:
•
Attached. You can go through the pointing process with the antenna and transceiver
attached as one unit. This means you have to move the entire terminal in order to point
the antenna towards the BGAN satellite. If you choose this option, make sure you connect
all cables including the short antenna cable, and enter the PIN, before pointing the
antenna. If not, you may accidently move the antenna when you connect cables or enter
the PIN.
•
Detached. You can detach the antenna
module and use it as a separate antenna.
With the antenna separated from the
transceiver, it is easier to use the transceiver
without accidently moving the antenna.
Also, you can choose the optimum location
for the antenna while keeping the
transceiver in a more comfortable location.
Important
Antenna
Transceiver

Chapter 3: To use the EXPLORER 710
Standard or Streaming data
The BGAN network supports different classes of data connection to the Internet. The main
classes are Standard data and Streaming data.
•
Using a Standard data connection, several users can share the data connection
simultaneously. This type of connection is ideal for TCP/IP traffic such as e-mail, file
transfer, and Internet and intranet access.
The user pays for the amount of data sent and received.
•
Using a Streaming data connection, you get an exclusive, high-priority connection,
ensuring seamless transfer of data. This type of connection is ideal for time critical
applications like live video over IP.
The user pays for the duration of the connection (per minute charge).
To start or stop a data connection
By default, you must manually start data connections. However, you can enable automatic
activation in the web interface. See To set up the connection mode on page 63.

To set up the connection mode of the EXPLORER 710, do as follows:
1. From the Terminal settings page, locate Connection.
2. At Internet connection mode, select Modem mode or Router mode. Router mode
is the default setting and is recommended for most purposes.
• Select Router mode if one or more computers are connected and the EXPLORER 710
should act as a router. When Router mode is selected, the EXPLORER 710 uses the builtin NAT module for making the necessary address translations.
• Select Modem mode if only one computer is connected, and the EXPLORER 710
should act as a modem, or more than one computer is connected using an external
router. 1
Note
Do not connect more than one computer in Modem mode, unless you have an
external router.
1. Note that in modem mode the local IP address is assigned by the external network (see drawing
in the beginning of this section), so when the terminal is connected to the external network you
cannot access the web interface with the usual local IP address. When the external network
is disconnected, the local IP address falls back to the address mentioned in step 3. (next step).

3. Under Local IP address, type in a new IP address if you want to change the Local IP
address of the terminal. This is the address used to access the web interface. The default IP
address is 192.168.0.1.
Note
If the EXPLORER 710 is in modem mode and connected to the BGAN network
(see previous step), you cannot use this address to access the web
interface, because the network dynamically assigns the IP address for the
EXPLORER 710.
So to access the web interface in modem mode, you must do one of the
following:
•
Access the web interface when there is no data connection on the BGAN
network
•
Check the IP address of your connected equipment and add 1 to the last
number. This is the IP address to access the web interface. (See the drawing
in the previous page).
4. To enable automatic activation of your data connection, select Automatic activation.
• When you select automatic activation and connect to the LAN or WLAN interface, the
data connection is automatically established as soon as the EXPLORER 710 and its BGAN
connection are ready.
Note
You are charged for the data transferred. You may want to disable automatic
updates in your LAN or WLAN device to avoid unnecessary charges.
• When you disable automatic activation (default), you can control the data connection
manually from the startup page  .
5. Under DHCP, select DHCP Enabled (recommended for most purposes).
• If you select DHCP Enabled, the terminal assigns dynamic IP addresses to devices
connected to the terminal.
• If disable DHCP, you need to set up a static IP address in the connected device.
6. If you want to change the Network mask for the local network of the terminal, type in
the new network mask. The default network mask is 255.255.255.0.

The filters are applied in the order they are added. This means that if you
want to have a connection with no filter, it must be the last connection you
add to your connection package. If not, the next filters are ignored, because
“No filter” means all data passes through without filtering.

Chapter 4: To use the web interface
5. Select a predefined filter for your new connection.
The predefined filters are:
• UDP: Filters traffic using UDP protocol (such as video streaming or Voice over IP).
• TCP: Filters Traffic using TCP protocol (such as web browsing)
• No filter: All data pass through. Use only for the last connection you add to your
package.
The filters are applied in the order in which they were defined. This means that if you have
a connection with no filter as the last connection, all traffic that does not match the first
filters in the list will be passed through on this last connection. For this reason we
recommend a Standard data connection for the “No filter” connection.

One battery is charged to 80%. Then the other battery is charged to 80%, and finally they are
both charged the last bit up to 100%. This way both batteries are charged in the shortest
possible time.
The display and the web interface of the EXPLORER 710 show battery status such as which
battery is currently charging and the battery level.
Deeply discharged batteries (precharge mode)
Never leave the battery fully discharged for a longer period of time. If the battery is not to be
used for a shorter period of time (1 month), charge the battery to minimum 20 to 30% and
remove it from the EXPLORER 710. If the Battery is stored for more than a month, see Storage
at the end of this section.
If a battery has not been used for a long time and has been discharged below its normal
operation range the EXPLORER 710 will not be able to apply the normal battery charging mode.
In this case an Alert is generated ("Internal/External battery low voltage") and the
EXPLORER 710 will use a precharging mode to recover the battery. The battery status in the
local display and the web interface will show "Precharging". No time estimate or battery
capacity will be indicated. Depending on how deeply discharged the battery is, the precharging
might process for up to 6 hours. After precharging, the EXPORER 710 will proceed with the
normal battery charging.

Chapter 5: Maintenance and troubleshooting
To connect an extra, external EXPLORER 710 battery
If you are not close to a power source, you may want to use an extra EXPLORER 710 battery as
backup. Do as follows:
1. Acquire an extra EXPLORER 710 battery with a dedicated EXPLORER 710 Hot Swap Cable
(part number 403720B-010).
2. Connect the dedicated cable between the external
EXPLORER 710 battery and the Ext. Battery
connector on the EXPLORER 710.
The EXPLORER 710 continues normal operation on
the inserted battery until it runs out of power.
3. When the inserted battery runs out of power, the EXPLORER 710 switches to the external
battery and continues normal operation.
Important
Before removing the empty battery, click/select the battery symbol in the
web interface or the display and make sure that the EXPLORER 710 is
actually running on the external battery.
4. If you have a third charged battery ready, you can now take out the inserted battery and
replace it with the new one, without interrupting the operation of the EXPLORER 710.
Accurate display of the battery capacity
To ensure accurate display of the battery capacity, it is recommended to run a “learning cycle”
at first time use and then at regular intervals (approximately for every 100 recharge/discharge
cycles). The learning cycle must be performed at 20°C-30°C.
A learning cycle is performed as follows:
1. Fully charge the battery.
2. Remove external power and fully discharge the battery:
Use the EXPLORER 710 and/or leave it on until it turns off automatically. This way the
EXPLORER 710 “learns” the complete capacity of the battery. Note that it may take several
hours to discharge the battery if it is not in use.
3. Recharge the battery.

Chapter 5: Maintenance and troubleshooting
Storage
Do not leave the battery inserted in the EXPLORER 710 during storage. If the battery is not to
be used for a longer period of time, do as follows:
1. Fully charge the battery.
2. Remove external power. Then use the EXPLORER 710 or leave it on until the display shows
a battery capacity of approximately 50%.
3. Switch off the EXPLORER 710.
Important
Switch off the EXPLORER 710 before removing the battery!
4. Remove the battery and store it.
In this condition the battery can be stored for approximately 1 year at 20°C to 30°C. After 1
year you must recharge the battery. For further information on storage temperature, see
Battery specifications on page 108.
