  4. Several places for external antennas are provided on the case, use an appropriate size drill, to make them available. Be careful and measure the chosen antenna, so that it does not touch the internal PCB board when installed.

The device can be used both indoors and outdoors. The IP rating scale of IP54.

If you intend to mount outdoors, please ensure that any cable openings are directed downwards. The Mounting direction is indicated on the device with an arrow pointing up. Use POE injector and proper grounding. Recommended using Cat6 shielded cable.
Warning! This equipment should be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 30 cm between the device and your body. Operation of this equipment in the residential environment could cause radio interference.
The device enclosure has places where you can drill openings for external LTE and GPS antennas. Use a drill to make holes that are appropriate for the antenna cable used.

Configuration

We recommend clicking the "Check for updates" button and updating your RouterOS software to the latest version to ensure the best performance and stability. RouterOS includes many configuration options in addition to what is described in this document. We suggest starting here to get yourself accustomed to the possibilities: https://mt.lv/help. In case IP connection is not available, the Winbox tool (https://mt.lv/winbox) can be used to connect to the MAC address of the device from the LAN side (all access is blocked from the internet port by default). For recovery purposes, it is possible to boot the device from a network, see the section LtAP kit-series#Reset button.

GPS

The built-in GPS module requires an external antenna to be used (SMA connector is already mounted behind the unit door). Please see the LtAP kit-series#Mounting section on how to remove the door.
Attention the GPS uses an active antenna, only connect and disconnect the antenna, when the device is turned off!

Supports - GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo).
Make sure that the GPS package is installed on your device. Check by following command /system package print. If not installed please download extra packages at our download page accordingly to your RouterOS version and install the GPS package by dragging it to the Files menu. Enable GPS and start working:

  • Enabling - /system gps set enable=yes;
  • Setting antenna to external - /system gps set gps-antenna-select=external;
  • Checking configuration - /system gps print.

When using an LR card the USB port power will be switched off by the CPU. It cannot be used together with an LR card.  

Automotive connector usage

Powering

  • Direct-input power jack (5.5 mm outside and 2 mm inside, female, pin positive plug) accepts 12-30 V DC ⎓ with provided 24 V, 1.2 A adapter.
  • Ethernet port accepts passive Power over Ethernet 12-30 V DC ⎓ (compensate for the loss on cable, so more than 12 V recommended).
  • The automotive connector can be used to power the device from regular 12/24 V ⎓ connections in automobiles and buses. The plug has four pins: bottom left (black) is the ground, bottom right is power in (red). The upper two (AUX) are reserved for future use.

The power consumption under maximum load can reach 12 W without attachments. Please attach ground (earth) wire to the screw under the door.
Connecting to a POE Adapter: (Not included)

  1. Connect the Ethernet cable from the device to the POE out port of the POE adapter.
  2. Connect an Ethernet cable from your LAN to the POE adapter.
  3. Connect the power cord to the adapter, and then plug the power cord into a power outlet.

Front status LED behavior

  1. Solid Blue – the device is powered on.
  2. Solid Green – user-defined LED, can be configured in system settings.
  3. Solid Green – state of GPS module.
  4. Solid Green– the set of five green LED, shows the signal strength of the cellular network.

miniPCIe slot

SIM card connectivity

  • MiniPCIe 1 LR (top slot) supports PCIe and USB 2.0 cards but is shared with the USB 2.0 type A port (can use either the USB port or miniPCIe slot at the same time). It can be used only for SIM slot #1.
  • MiniPCIe 2 LTE (bottom slot) supports only USB (2.0 and 3.0) miniPCIe modems (no PCIe support). Uses SIM slot #2 and SIM slot #3. By default uses SIM slot #2. The sim cards can be switched in ROS.
  • USB 2.0 type A port (can only be used if miniPCIe 1 is not used). If using LR, the USB will be turned off.
  • To use the top miniPCIe slot with a USB type miniPCIe card, switch the USB connections to the miniPCIe slot: /system routerboard usb set type=mini-PCIe This will disable the USB 2.0 port on the front of the unit.

Insert the SIM card into the top slot by a chip on the SIM card facing down. Bottom slots – with the chip facing up.

By default the LR card is connected with SIM slot #1, the slot cannot be used for a different purpose.

Please check if you are using the correct SIM slot. For the modem inserted in the bottom mini-pcie slot, you need to use either sim slot 2 or sim slot 3. And the used sim slot needs to be selected in RouterOS.
CLI command to select the sim slot: /system routerboard modem set sim-slot=2

Modem installation

This LtAP version is with the modem installed in the bottom slot. When installing an additional modem please use the upper slot. In this case, an internal antenna is connected to the bottom modem.
Installing a miniPCIe module should be done by a qualified person, please follow safety precautions when handling electrical equipment:

  1. Use a wrist grounding strap when unpacking and working with electrical components to avoid electrical discharge (ESD) damage;
  2. Remove six screws on the bottom of the case and lift off the top part of the case. Note that antenna cables are connected to the bottom modem;
  3. Locate the miniPCIe slot and remove two factory attached screws;
  4. Attach provided a thick thermal pad to the card, and install the card into miniPCIe slot so that thermal pad is between PCB and card;
  5. The secure card in place using previously removed two screws;
  6. Guide your antenna cables through openings near the GPS connector and connect to your modem. Recommended using silicone rubber to secure connectors in place.
  7. Attach a thinner thermal pad to the top of the card;
  8. When using external antennas, connectors can be attached on the case sides, to make openings use a 6.5 mm drill bit, please see LtAP kit-series#Mounting section part 4;
  9. Please see the picture below for reference on how to place rubber seals for best water protection;
  10. Reassembly in backorder. Tightening torque for PCB screws 0.3 Nm, case cover/enclosure screws 0.5 Nm.

After you have reinserted the device into the case and secured it with the screws that were removed earlier, slide in the SIM cards from your mobile operator into the SIM slots, with the chips facing as shown on the port label. The slot accepts miniSIM (2FF). SIM slots 2 and 3 apply to the bottom miniPCIe slot and can be switched in RouterOS "/system routerboard sim" menu.

Reset button

  • Hold this button during boot time until LED light starts flashing, release the button to reset RouterOS configuration (total 5 seconds).
  • Keep holding for 5 more seconds, LED turns solid, release now to turn on CAP mode. The device will now look for a CAPsMAN server (total 10 seconds).
  • Or keep holding the button for 5 more seconds until LED turns off, then release it to make the RouterBOARD look for Netinstall servers (total 15 seconds).
