Notes:

  1. It is suggested to use waterproof tape for the Ethernet and Power connector for better protection.
  2. Please do not connect to the router or power up the hotspot before connecting the antenna, otherwise, it may cause damage to the device.
  3. For antenna longer than 40cm, please use the extended cable to connect, in order to prevent accidental damage caused by excessive force (e.g. in windy weather, or accidental hit by the birds).

Attention

The working temperature of the outdoor enclosure is -40~85°C, and it provides IP66-rated waterproof and basic protection of the hotspots in general weather conditions outdoor area. Users should always keep in mind that it is important to make sure the inner temperature does not exceed the specified working temperature range of each component assembled inside, such as the hotspot, PoE, and battery management controller.

If your placement is in a high-temperature weather area and has a long period of direct sunlight, it is highly suggested to add an additional cover or put the enclosure under the solar panel to prevent overheating damage to the internal device.

Please note that SenseCAP will not be responsible for the damage to the inside devices due to users’ misuse in inappropriate extreme weather conditions.
