2 Installation instructions In the following chapter provided the instructions of module installation and initial bring up.

2.1 Mini PCI Express module 2.1.1 Opening the service door

a. Unscrew marked Philips screw at the bottom to release service-door. b. Slide out service-door until it stops – about 10 mm. c. Service-door is now detached. Lift edge of service-door to completely remove.

2.1.2 Service bay The service-bay provides easy access to hard-disk, RAM, and mini-PCIe sockets including WLAN, cellular and other modules.

2.1.3 Mini PCI Express sockets The full-size mini PCIe is available for any use, like cellular modem. The half-size mini-PCIe normally used for WLAN cards. If you remove the WLAN module make sure to isolate the ends of antenna cables with some tape to avoid short-circuit.

2.1.4 Antenna a. Both WLAN module and Cellular modem use two antennas for Rx diversity to improve RF signal reception and sensitivity, especially in RF inconvenient environments like urban and indoor spaces. b. RF coaxial cables in the system (U.FL IPEX MHF to SMA) serve both WLAN and Cellular carriers frequencies and match in terms of characteristics impedance and V.S.W.R. (voltage standing wave ratio). c. WLAN and Cellular coexistence – Cellular antenna connection based on the existing RF cables (models with Wifi) so users will use one cable connected to the WLAN module and the other to the Cellular modem. WLAN and Cellular antennas are different therefore must be connected to the correct SMA connector on the back panel after reassembly.

2.1.5 Reassembly Re-assemble in reverse order. Storage disk connects by sliding-in the service-door.
