Installing your device
Step 1: Insert the SIM card
| Wireless M2M
Press the SIM Eject button to eject the SIM card tray. Place the SIM card in the
tray and then insert the loaded tray into the SIM slot with the gold side facing up,
as shown below.
11
NetCommWireless
Step 2: Fix the SIM tray cover to the device (optional)
If you wish to protect the SIM card from tampering, use a Torx screwdriver to fix
the SIM tray cover to the router with the supplied Torx screw.
Step 3: Attach the antennas
| Wireless M2M
The NTC-6200 Series router is shipped with caps on the Main, Auxiliary and on
the GPS antenna sockets for those models equipped with GPS. To attach the
supplied antennas, first remove the socket caps from the Main and Auxiliary
antenna sockets then screw the antennas onto the sockets by turning them
in a clockwise direction. Please refer to the Device overview section for the
antenna socket layout. If you have an NTC-6200 Series router with GPS and have
purchased a GPS antenna, remove the socket cap from the GPS antenna socket
and attach the antenna to the socket in the same manner.
12
NTC-6200 Series - 3G M2M Router / Plus
Step 4: Mount the router
Mount your router in a suitable location using the options listed in the Mounting
options section.
When selecting a location to mount the NTC-6200 Series router, keep in mind that
it features two high performance antennas designed to provide optimum signal
strength in a wide range of environments. If you find the signal strength is weak,
try moving the router to a different place, mounting it differently or changing the
orientation of the antennas.
| Wireless M2M
The signal strength LEDs update within a few seconds with a rolling average signal
strength reading. When selecting a location for the router, please allow up to 20
seconds for the signal strength LEDs to update before repositioning.
13

Step 5: Connect the power and Ethernet cables
Connect power to your router using one of the following options.
Power over Ethernet (802.3af PoE) (NTC-6200-01 & NTC-6200-11 only)
Connect your router to a PoE injector or PoE network switch using the bundled
yellow Ethernet cable 8P8C. This method uses the Ethernet connection to power
and transfer data to and from the router.
DC power via the six-way / two-way connector
Remove the attached green terminal block from your router and connect to the
router’s power socket using a DC power supply, sold separately.
DC power via field terminated power source
If an 8-40V DC power supply is available, you can insert the wires into the
supplied terminal block to power your router. Use a flathead screwdriver to tighten
the terminal block screws and secure the power wires, making sure that you have
correctly wired the terminal block as illustrated below.

Safety and product care
RF exposure
Your device contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is on, it receives and transmits RF
energy. When you communicate with your device, the system handling your connection controls
the power level at which your device transmits.
This device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio waves.
This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure
to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the
U.S. Government.
This device complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment. To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the device must be used with a
minimum of 20cm separation from the body. Failure to observe these instructions could result in
your RF exposure exceeding the relevant guideline limits.
External antenna
Any optional external antenna used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a separation
distance of at least 20 cm from all persons and must not be co-located or operated in
conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. Please consult the health and safety guide of
the chosen antenna for specific body separation guidelines as a greater distance of separation
may be required for high-gain antennas.
Any external antenna gain must meet RF exposure and maximum radiated output power limits
of the applicable rule section. The maximum antenna gain for this device as reported to the FCC
is: 0.2 dBi (850MHz) and 2.7 dBi (1900MHz).

device is installed in an area where the temperature is within the supported operating
temperature range (-20°C to 70°C)
Do not use your device in an enclosed environment or where heat dissipation is
poor. Prolonged use in such space may cause excessive heat and raise ambient
temperature, which will lead to automatic shutdown of your device or the disconnection
of the mobile network connection for your safety. To use your device normally again
after such shutdown, cool it in a well-ventilated place before turning it on.
Please check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.
Do not operate the device where ventilation is restricted

25
NetCommWireless
Children
Do not leave your device and its accessories within the reach of small children or allow them to
play with it. They could hurt themselves or others, or could accidentally damage the device.
Your device contains small parts with sharp edges that may cause an injury or which could
become detached and create a choking hazard.
Emergency situations
This device, like any wireless device, operates using radio signals, which cannot guarantee
connection in all conditions. Therefore, you must never rely solely on any wireless device for
emergency communications.
Device heating
Your device may become warm during normal use.
Faulty and damaged products
Do not attempt to disassemble the device or its accessories.
Only qualified personnel must service or repair the device or its accessories.
If your device or its accessories have been submerged in water punctured or subjected to a
severe fall, do not use until they have been checked at an authorised service centre.
Interference
Care must be taken when using the device in close proximity to personal medical devices, such
as pacemakers and hearing aids.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of 15cm be maintained
between a device and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker.
Hearing aids
| Wireless M2M
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may experience interfering noises when
using wireless devices or when one is nearby.
26
The level of interference will depend on the type of hearing device and the distance from the
interference source, increasing the separation between them may reduce the interference. You
may also consult your hearing aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Medical devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to determine if operation of your device
may interfere with the operation of your medical device.
NTC-6200 Series - 3G M2M Router / Plus
Hospitals
Switch off your wireless device when requested to do so in hospitals, clinics or health care facilities.
These requests are designed to prevent possible interference with sensitive medical equipment.
Interference in cars
Please note that because of possible interference to electronic equipment, some vehicle
manufacturers forbid the use of devices in their vehicles unless an external antenna is included
in the installation.
Explosive environments
Petrol stations and explosive atmospheres
In locations with potentially explosive atmospheres, obey all posted signs to turn off wireless
devices such as your device or other radio equipment. Areas with potentially explosive
atmospheres include fuelling areas, below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such as grain, dust, or metal powders.
Blasting caps and areas
| Wireless M2M
Turn off your device or wireless device when in a blasting area or in areas posted turn off “twoway radios” or “electronic devices” to avoid interfering with blasting operations.
