1. EasyGate purpose

1.1. Basic Functions

The primary purpose of EasyGate is to transmit voice between a GSM network and an attached FXO-interface terminal (PBX, telephone, answering machine, etc.).

You can establish data connections (GPRS, CSD), fax connections (PC-FAX) and send/receive SMS using EasyGate in combination with a PC and appropriate software.

You can send an SMS to a pre-programmed number using the SMS sending input.

Analogue fax transmition on some models.

1.2. Advantages of EasyGate Use

Call cost cutting – by forwarding GSM calls to EasyGate you save a lot on PSTN – GSM calls.

Easy installation – EasyGate is designed for immediate use without programming.

You get all you need in the delivery – your EasyGate delivery contains all you need to operate the system (the power supply adapter, telephone cable, PC serial cable,

SMS input connector, CD-ROM with software).

Solution for sites without telephone lines – such as mountain chalets, exhibitions, conferences, etc.

CLIP - EasyGate is equipped with the FSK-based CLIP feature, so if a terminal capable of receiving the CLIP is used you know the caller‘s number.

Quick data connection – EasyGate transmits data using the high-speed GPRS connection (GPRS class 10, max. 85.6 kbps).

SMS sending input – simply send an SMS to a pre-programmed number by closing the contact. Recommended for easy supervision, simple securing, etc.

Radiation hazard minimization – you are not exposed to a direct effect of the antenna RF electromagnetic field while telephoning as opposed to mobile telephones.

Full GSM coverage - EasyGate is available in the following versions: dual-band (900 and 1800MHz), tri-band for European markets (900, 1800 and 1900MHz), and tri-band for the American market (850, 1800 and 1900MHz).

2. Installation

2.1. Proper Location

EasyGate is designed for vertical mounting on suspension holes (use the mounting pattern). This position is the best for signal reception because a vertical antenna is used. EasyGate can be operated in the horizontal position too where the GSM signal is good.

Install EasyGate with respect to the GSM signal strength – check the signal strength using the PCManager.

Place EasyGate out of range of sensitive devices and human bodies for electromagnetic interference reasons.

For the allowed range of operating temperatures refer to the “Technical Parameters”.

It is impossible to operate EasyGate on sites exposed to direct solar radiation or near heat sources.

EasyGate is designed for indoor use. It may not be exposed to rain, flowing water, condensed moisture, fog, etc.

EasyGate may not be exposed to aggressive gas, acid vapours, solvents, etc.

EasyGate is not designed for environments with high vibrations such as means of transport, machine rooms, etc.

2.2. External Antenna Connection

Screw the antenna enclosed into the SMA antenna connector. Tighten the antenna connector gently with your hand - never use wrenches!

The antenna enclosed has a sufficient gain for trouble-free operation in normal conditions. If the GSM signal is poor or you want to place your antenna separately from EasyGate, you can use an antenna with an SMA-connector terminated cable. The antenna should be mounted vertically.

The Antenna shall be located within the same building as the main equipment.

For antenna and cable parameters see the “Technical Parameters“.

2.3. SIM Card Installation

Make sure that the GSM provider’s SIM card is compatible with the GSM network supported by your EasyGate version.

Open the SIM card holder on EasyGate’s backside, insert the SIM card and close it. Select the required GSM provider and SIM card services, such as call forwarding, call barring, preferred networks, SMS service centre, etc. in your mobile phone before inserting your SIM card in EasyGate.

2.5. Telephone Line Connection

2.5.1. PBX Connection

Connect EasyGate to a free CO line of your PBX. Configure your PBX in such a manner that GSM outgoing calls are routed to EasyGate.

EasyGate is equipped with the FSK-based CLIP function. If your PBX is able to process the caller’s ID, you are advised to enable this function.

2.5.2. Telephone Set (Answering Machine, Coin Telephone Station) Connection

You can connect a standard telephone, answering machine or any other FXO-interface terminal to EasyGate. Optionally you can connect analogue fax (special model of EasyGate).

EasyGate is equipped wit the FSK-based CLIP and so it is advantageous to connect a terminal that is able to display the CLI.

2.6. Power Supply Connection

EasyGate is fed with 10-16V DC. Where a source other than the included power supply adapter is used, the voltage range and polarity shown on the EasyGate power supply connector have to be maintained.

Do not activate the power supply until the antenna is connected to EasyGate to avoid the GSM module damage.

2.7. SMS Sending Input Connection

You have got a special connector for easy connection to EasyGate. The connector is equipped with screwing clamps to connect wires leading to a switching contact (device to be monitored). The other connector end can be connected to the respective EasyGate panel connector.

The input is designed for the switching contact connected between the input pins.

The input is activated by contact closing (pin interconnection).

4

A transistor switch or logic signal can be used too. The pin near the telephone line connector is connected to GND of the device the second one is active. Please, respect the loop current polarity. The input is over-voltage protected (up to +12V DC).

2.8. PC Connection

You have got a serial cable for PC connection. It is a modem cable where all of the 9 pins are 1:1 interconnected – in case you wanted to use another, longer cable. Make sure that a longer cable works properly to avoid errors at high transmission rates.

3. EasyGate Status Indication

3.1. Indication LEDs

Name

Meaning

 

 

 

 

Power supply

Light = EasyGate is powered.

Flashes once in 2s = HW error, contact the manufacturer.

 

 

 

 

Light = logged-in to GSM

 

Flashes once in 1s = logged-out, SIM card inserted

 

Flashes once in 3s = logged-out, SIM card not inserted

GSM network

Flashes 4 times quickly = enter your PIN

 

Flashes 8 times quickly = enter your PUK

 

Flashes quickly continuously = all functions are blocked.

 

Your SIM doesn’t correspond to the GSM operator lock

 

 

 

No light = standby

Telephone line

Flashes quickly = seized line or ringing

Light = call

 

Flashes once in 3s = data connection in progress

On FAX models:

Flashes 2 times then pause = fax connection in progress; after power on signalize need of FW upgrade.

Flashes 3 times then pause = fax connection in progress

3.2.Telephone Line Tones

3.2.1. Operational Tones

The GSM gateway sends tones to the telephone line to indicate the line status. The tone frequency is 425 Hz.

Dial tone: continuous or morse A :

EasyGate is registered to GSM network and ready to receive dialing.

Ringing tone:

The called subscriber's telephone is ringing.

The GSM network transmits this tone.

Busy tone:

The busy tone is transmitted in any of the following cases:

§The SIM card has not been installed.

§EasyGate is logged-out.

§EasyGate is logged-in to a foreign network but roaming is disabled.
