Basic Functions

2N® SmartCOM is designed for bidirectional data transmission between serial ports and their opponents based on GPRS data transmission

via the GSM network.

Installation Conditions

Install the GSM antenna with respect to the signal quality in the location.

Keep 2N® SmartCOM off sensitive devices and human bodies to avoid EM interference.

External Antenna Connection

Screw the enclosed antenna into the SMA antenna connector. Tighten the antenna connector gently with your hand, never use a tool!

SIM Card Installation

Insert the SIM card in the hole in the upper part of 2N® SmartCOM making sure that the bevelled edge of the SIM card faces the green connector (see the figure on the front side of the product). Remember to set the relevant provider’s services (PIN request, e.g.) on your mobile phone before inserting the SIM card in 2N® SmartCOM. Make

sure that the provider’s SIM card is intended for the GSM network supported by your 2N® SmartCOM version and that the GPRS data transmission is activated with an IP address enabling incoming connection (unless you use the 2N® SmartCOM server).

Power Supply

2N® SmartCOM is DC supplied from a 12V/0.5A power adapter included in the delivery. The use

of any other

adapter may
