1 INTRODUCTION
This product manual is only addressed to qualified personnel which are well skilled in
electronical/electrical installation and not addressed to private consumers/end users. The installation,
implementing or setting into operation of the product can only be performed by qualified personnel.
1.1
General
The DR864 is a Quad-Band GSM/GPRS engine that allows communication on any GSM network in
the world. It works on four frequencies GSM 850/900 MHz, DCS 1800 MHz and PCS 1900 MHz. The
product is built inside a single DIN rail housing for easy mounting. To cover the need of high speed
data transfers and the use of real time TCP/IP orientated applications it has an embedded TCP/IP
enabled GSM/GPRS modem. The configuration can be done through the RS232 interface (Rx, Tx)
using AT-commands. To monitor the status of the GSM/GPRS engine there is a LED status indicator
on the top panel of the device housing. The GSM/GPRS engine inside the product is a Telit GE-864PY Quad module with embedded GE-864-PY (Python) Script Interpreter allowing self controlled
operation of the modem. This allows system integrators or end users to run own python script
codes, for example: send SMS notifications, set the provided GPIO to a specific level and set up a
permanent TCP connection to a remote server socket, for example, when connecting to a fuse
panel for controlling automatically or remotely the light of the house, or something of user
interest. The DIN Rail housing, embedded GE-864-PY Script Interpreter, wide range DC power
supply from 10.8 ... 31.2 VDC and wide operating temperature from -30 to + 80 °C make the DR864
product suitable for the most demanding industrial applications. The product provides 1 GPIO pin,
a RS232 interface and power supply lines. The product features GPRS class B, class 10 (making
download at speeds up to 85 kbps) and supports GPRS coding schemes CS-1, CS-2, CS-3 and CS-4.
To control the functions of the GSM module there is an advanced set of the AT commands
according to GSM ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) 07.07 and 07.05
implemented. Additionally the "AT Command Set" manual for this modem is also available for free
download from the FALCOM's product page at: www.falcom.de.
About GPRS:
GPRS is standard for General Packet Radio Service that is an add-on to the GSM (Global System for
Mobile Communications) cellular network - a type of network used to provide cellular phone service. In
regions where GPRS is not available, users can still access their important information with GSM 14.4
kbps data connections.
Users are advised to quickly proceed to the “Security” chapter and read the hints carefully.

2 SECURITY
IMPORTANT FOR THE EFFICIENT AND SAFE OPERATION OF YOUR GSM-MODEM, READ THIS
INFORMATION BEFORE USE!
Your cellular engine DR864 is one of the most exciting and innovative electronic products ever
developed. With it, you can stay in contact with your office, your home, emergency services and
others, wherever service is provided.
This chapter contains important information for the safe and reliable use of the DR864 device.
Please read this chapter carefully before starting to use the cellular engine DR864.
2.1
General information
Your DR864 device utilizes the GSM standard for cellular technology. GSM is a newer radio
frequency („RF“) technology than the current FM technology that has been used for radio
communications for decades. The GSM standard has been established for use in the European
community and elsewhere. Your DR864 is actually a low power radio transmitter and receiver. It
sends out and receives radio frequency energy. When you use your modem, the cellular system
handling your calls controls both the radio frequency and the power level of your cellular modem.
SIM cards are needed for the use of the acquired devices, which are not included in the scope of
delivery of the device. The SIM cards can be acquired e.g. by specific providers. Additional costs can
result from the use of the SIM cards which are to be borne by the purchaser (client) of the devices.
The seller does not cover the extra costs for the use of the devices. The seller gives no
recommendation for the use of specific SIM cards and is not liable for the fact that the devices are
usable with all available SIM cards. The seller is also not liable for any other costs that are needed
for the application of the customer in connection with this device.
2.2
Exposure to RF energy
There has been some public concern about possible health effects of using GSM modems. Although
research on health effects from RF energy has focused for many years on the current RF
technology, scientists have begun research regarding newer radio technologies, such as GSM. After
existing research had been reviewed, and after compliance to all applicable safety standards had
been tested, it has been concluded that the product is fit for use.
If you are concerned about exposure to RF energy, there are things you can do to minimize
exposure. Obviously, limiting the duration of your calls will reduce your exposure to RF energy. In
addition, you can reduce RF exposure by operating your cellular modem efficiently by following the
guidelines below.
2.3
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of cellular devices in the area where you drive. Always
obey them. Also, when using your DR864 while driving, please pay full attention to driving, pull off
the road and park before making or answering a call if driving conditions so require. When
applications are prepared for mobile use, they should fulfil road-safety instructions of the current
law!

VERSION 1.0.2
Electronic devices
Most electronic equipment, for example in hospitals and motor vehicles is shielded from RF
energy. However, RF energy may affect some malfunctioning or improperly shielded electronic
equipment.
2.5
Vehicle electronic equipment
Check your vehicle manufacturer’s representative to determine if any on board electronic
equipment is adequately shielded from RF energy.
2.6
Medical electronic equipment
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices (such as pacemakers, hearing aids, etc.)
to determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF energy.
Turn your DR864 device OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted in the area
instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using RF monitoring equipment.
2.7
Aircraft
Turn your DR864 OFF before boarding any aircraft. Use it on the ground only with crew permission.
Do not use it in the air.
To prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
regulations require you to have permission from a crew-member to use your modem while the
plane is on the ground. To prevent interference with cellular systems, local RF regulations prohibit
using your modem whilst airborne.
2.8
Children
Do not allow children to play with your DR864 device. It is not a toy. Children could hurt
themselves or others (by poking themselves or others in the eye with the antenna, for example).
Children could damage the modem or make calls that increase your modem bills.
2.9
Blasting areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your device OFF when in a “blasting area” or in
areas posted: „turn off two-way radio“. Construction crew often uses remote control RF devices to
set off explosives.
2.10 Potentially explosive atmospheres
Turn your DR864 device OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. It is rare, but
your modems or their accessories could generate sparks. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion
or fire resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly marked. They
include fuelling areas such as petrol stations; below decks on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities; and areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust or
metal powders.
Do not transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives, in the compartment of your vehicle,
which contains your modem or accessories.

Before using your modem in a vehicle powered by liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or
butane) ensure that the vehicle complies with the relevant fire and safety regulations of the
country in which the vehicle is to be used.
2.11 Safety standards
Your GSM/GPRS device complies with all applicable RF safety standards.
DR864 meets the safety standards for RF receivers and the standards and recommendations for
the protection of public exposure to RF electromagnetic energy established by government bodies
and professional organizations, such as directives of the European Community, Directorate General
V in matters of radio frequency electromagnetic energy.
