3.0 ROUTER DESCRIPTION
3.1
DESCRIPTION
The SPECTRE Cellular industrial router is used to wirelessly connect Ethernet equipment and other
devices to the Internet or intranet. Thanks to the high data transfer speed of up to 100 Mbit/s
download (LTE models) and 50 Mbit/s upload (LTE models), it is an ideal wireless solution for traffic
and security camera systems, individual computers, LAN networks, automatic teller machines (ATM)
and other self-service terminals.
The standard configuration includes one 10/100 Ethernet port, one USB Host port, one binary
Input/output (I/O) port and dual SIM card holders. Network redundancy is provided by the second
SIM card holder. It also contains 2 auxiliary ports for connecting to other types of networks such as
RS-232, RS-485/422, Digital/Analog I/O, or they can be configured to provide additional switched
Ethernet ports. The function of each port is dependent upon the specific router model.
Configuration of the router may be done via a password-protected Web interface. The router
supports the creation of VPN tunnels using IPsec, OpenVPN and L2TP to ensure safe communication.
The Web interface provides detailed statistics about the router’s activities, signal strength, etc. The
router supports DHCP, NAT, NAT-T, DynDNS, NTP, VRRP, control by SMS, and many other functions.
The router provides diagnostic functions which include automatically monitoring the PPP connection,
automatic restart in case of connection losses, and a hardware watchdog that monitors the router
status. The user may insert Linux scripts to control various router functions and create up to four
different configurations for the same router. These configuration files can include different SMS
functionality and binary input configurations. You may switch between different configurations
whenever necessary. The router can automatically upgrade its configuration and firmware from your
central server. This allows for mass reconfiguration of numerous routers at the same time.

4.0 MOUNTING RECOMMENDATIONS
• The router may be placed on a work surface.
• Clips are included for mounting the router on a standard DIN rail.
The router may be installed in an industrial instrument panel.
For best performance, please consider the following guidelines:
 When using the supplied whip antennas, maintain a distance of 6 cm from cables and metal
surfaces on every side. When using an external antenna, unless in a switch-board, it is
necessary to fit a lightning conductor
 When mounting a router on sheet steel we recommend using an external antenna.
 If the router is installed in a metal instrument enclosure, an external antenna must be used
and it must be mounted outside of the metal enclosure.
Fig. 3: Space around antenna
17
We recommend binding the cables together to avoid coupling noise onto the cables.
1. Length: The combination of power supply and data cables can be a maximum of 1.5 meters.
2. If the length of the data cables exceeds 1.5 meters or if the cable leads towards the switch
panel, we recommend installing overvoltage protectors (surge suppressors).
3. Do not bundle the data cables with 120/230V power cables.
4. All wiring to sensors should use shielded twisted pairs.
Fig. 4: Cable routing
Leave enough space around the connectors for the handling of cables.
18
Fig. 5: Space in front of connectors
We recommend using the switch panel’s earth-bonding distribution frame for grounding the router’s
power supply, data cables and antenna.
Removing from DIN rail
Fig. 6: DIN rail clip
This is the default position of the DIN rail clip. To remove the router from the DIN rail, push the
router up slightly, so that the top part of the clip disengages, and then gently slide the router off the
DUIN rail.

The router requires a +10 V to +30 V DC supply. Protection against reversed polarity is built into the
router.
The power consumption during receiving is 2.3W. The peak power consumption during data sending is
5.5W. For correct operation, the power source must be able to supply a peak current of 1A.
The power cable connects to the router via locking screws. (See Fig. 21)

ANTENNA CONNECTOR
The two large cellular antennas are connected to the router using the standard SMA antenna
connectors on the front panel. The main cellular antenna connection is labeled ANT. The router
cannot operate without a main antenna. The receive diversity antenna connection is labeled DIV.
This antenna improves the receive sensitivity of the router and should be used in areas with weak
signal strength.
On SPECTRE Cellular routers with Wi-Fi, a third antenna is connected to the AUX antenna connector
on the front panel.
The AUX connector on the Wi-Fi units is a reverse-polarity SMA connector and should only be used
with the smaller Wi-Fi antenna. Do not attempt to connect the cellular antennas to this connector
as it can damage the connector and the antennas.
Example of antenna:
Fig. 13: External antenna
Connect the antenna’s SMA connector to the router’s SMA connector. (See figure below).

RS-485/422 PORTS
The RS-485/422 ports can be powered using the internal 3.3V supply or by connecting an external
power supply to the port connector. External or internal power is selected by jumpers J2 and J3 on
the RS-485 module daughter board. To use internal power, place jumpers J2 and J3 across pins 2 and
3. To select external power, jumpers J2 and J3 must be on pins 1 and 2.
Interface behavior of module Expansion port RS485/RS422 can be made by wiring Jumpers J4, J5 and
J6 on the RS-485 module select the mode of the port – either RS-485 or RS-422 mode. If RS485 is
required, jumpers J4 and J5 must be connected and jumper J6 disconnected. If RS422 is required,
jumpers J4 and J5 must be disconnected and jumper J6 connected.
Jumper placement can be seen in the picture below (RS-485 module is viewed from the top).
Internal power supply should only be used in the event that it is not possible to provide an external
power supply.

5.7.3
I/O PORT
The I/O port user interface (CNT) is used to monitor analog and binary input signals and to control
binary output signals. The interface has 6 inputs and 1 output. Two of the inputs can be configured as
binary counter inputs or general purpose binary inputs. There are also 2 dedicated binary inputs, 2
analog current inputs, and 1 open-collector output. The options for the I/O port are configured by
writing to register values on the I/O board using the MODBUS ASCII protocol.
The unit can periodically store the values of the inputs in memory. These log entries can be read by
reading the individual memory locations. Up to 224 log entries may be stored. The logging interval
can range from 1-65535 minutes.
5.7.3.1
ANALOG INPUTS
The analog current inputs have a range from 0 to 20mA. The input impedance is 100 Ω and the ADC
resolution is 12 bits. The averaging and sampling period may be adjusted by the user. Also, alarms
thresholds may be set for each input.
The ADC value stored in memory is calculated using the following equation:
ADC Value = ((12b value + addit. constant) * multiplic. constant)/1000
where the constants are programmed into memory by the user.
5.7.3.2
BINARY INPUT
The binary input is sampled 8x per second with a sampling period of 1/64 seconds. The active level
for each binary input may be set to either a logic 0 or logic 1. The inputs may be configured to
generate an alarm when they become active. The input threshold for detecting a logic 1 can be set at
either 8uA or 20mA using a jumper on the module board.
5.7.3.3
COUNTER INPUT
The counter inputs have a maximum input frequency of 100 Hz. The minimum input pulse width is
1ms. The counter input may be configured to generate an alarm when a threshold is reached.
5.7.3.4
BINARY OUTPUT
The binary output is a transistor with an open collector output. In the inactive state (logic 0) the
transistor is off. In the active state (log. 1), the transistor is on and will connect the output signal to
ground (GND). The output transistor is rated at 100 mA and 30V.
The output may be configured to generate a pulse from 125 to 8000ms in length. It is also possible to
configure the unit so that the output will become active when counter 1 (CNT1) reaches a threshold.
37
5.7.3.5
SELECTING THE BINARY INPUT CURRENT
The input threshold for detecting a logic 1 can be set at either 8uA or 20mA using a jumper on the
module board. When jumper J4 is shorted, the threshold current level is 20 mA. When jumper J4 is
not shorted, the threshold current level is 8μA. A threshold current value of 20mA has a higher
resistance to noise on the input but also dissipates more power.

The I/O Port registers are read and written using MODBUS ASCII slave protocol over serial port 1.
Using this protocol, it is possible to configure the I/O board, read the input status, and control the
output. The I/O port communicates at 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit (8N1).

Table 22: Ways to reset or restart the router
After the green LED starts to blink you may restore the router’s initial settings by pressing button RST
on front panel. The router will restore its factory default configuration and reboot (The green LED will
be on).
To reset, use a narrow screwdriver. (See Fig. 37)

FIRST USE
Before you can set up the router you will need to make all of the necessary connections. The router
cannot operate without a connected antenna, SIM card (for UMTS networks), and a power supply.
Operating the router without an antenna can damage the router.
7.1
STARTING THE ROUTER
Connect power to the router. In the default setting the router will start to login automatically to the
preset APN. The Ethernet port DHCP server will assign device addresses. The behavior of the router
can be modified by means of the Web or Telnet interface, as described in the configuration manual.
The power consumption during receiving is 2.3W. The peak power consumption during data
transmission is 5.5 W. For correct operation the power source must be able to supply a peak current
of 1A.
7.2
CONFIGURING THE ROUTER
Attention! The cellular carrier and network must be configured in the router prior to use. For UMTS
and LTE networks, the router will not operate without a SIM card. The SIM card must be provisioned
for the necessary network (LTE/HSPA+/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS). For 3G CDMA networks, the router is
provisioned over-the-air. Refer to the Configuration manual for details on configuring the router
based on the cellular carrier and network.
Configuration over Web browser
Monitoring of the status, configuration and administration of the router can be done via the Web
interface. The default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. The username is "root". The password
is "root".
A detailed description of configuring the router via the Web interface can be found
in the configuration manual
Configuration over Telnet
Monitoring of status, configuration and administration of the router can be performed by means of the Telnet
interface. The default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. The username is "root". The password is "root".

FAQ
Q. I have NAT enabled. My equipment is not connecting to the network
 The device's gateway has to be configured as the router.
Q. The router resets itself and the Ethernet connection fails.
 The router will not function without an antenna. Keep the antenna as far as possible from
the power supply.
Q. I can’t access the Web server over NAT.
 The remote http access of the router has to be disabled, the default server address has to be
your web server and the gateway of the web server has to be the IP of the router.
Q. PPP connection fails. (DAT LED off)
 Check signal power. If signal power is weak you will need a better antenna. If the neighboring
cells have a similar signal strength, you will need to use a directional antenna. For proper
operation, the signal levels have to be in the range from -50dBm to -90dBm. It is necessary to
set ping, which will check the connection and, in the case of failed ping, restart the
connection.
Q. PPP connection cannot be established. (DAT LED off)
 Recheck GPRS settings - APN, name, password and IP address.
 Try to enter PIN – verify if the SIM card has the PIN code set.
 In a private APN, switch the DNS server send off.
 Switch the system log on and observe where the error occurs.
Q. FTP doesn’t function.
 Router doesn’t support active FTP mode. It supports passive mode only.
Q. RS-232 doesn’t function.
 Verify that the router supports RS-232 communications. Also verify the RS-232
communication settings. To do so, open the router’s configuration menu via the web browser,
select the appropriate expansion port and verify the settings in the configuration menu.
Q. L2TP or IPSec isn’t establishing.
 Check the system log for error messages.
Q. I switched the router to offline mode by SMS message, but the router is in online mode after
restart.

SMS messages do not change the router configuration. They remain in effect only until the
router is restarted.
