Q35 Locator Mounting Instruction

Read these instructions carefully before installing the Quuppa Q35 Locator. We also recommend familiarising yourself with the full Q35 Installation Guide, which provides further details about the procedure.

Installing the Q35

  1. Connect the Ethernet cable (and Micro USB if used) to the Locator. As the Q35 can be used with either shielded or unshielded Ethernet (e.g. Cat5e/6), you can choose the type of cable that best suits your deployment environment. For example, for demanding environments (e.g. industrial or outdoor), we recommend that you select shielded cables for better protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electrostatic discharges.
    Note: If you are installing the device in an outdoor environment (or an indoor environment with high levels moisture or dust), use cables and connectors designed for outdoor use to protect the device from water, moisture and dust. In such cases, to ensure that the installation is really waterproof, we recommend that you:
    • Use ready made cables, where the waterproof connector has been attached by the cable manufacturer. If ready made cables are not available, you can also use a compatible connector housing part over the RJ45 connector.
    • Do not remove the protective cap from the USB port unless you are using the USB port to power the Locator, in which case, make sure to also use a waterproof USB cable connector.
  2. Check the cables using an Ethernet cable tester and ensure that all of the connectors are securely fastened. Avoid any sharp turns, bends or pulling on the cable when routing it to the PoE switch. You can also use the device's indicator light to troubleshoot connectivity issues. For more information, please see the Connect to Network section in the Installation Guide.
  3. Attach the device to a suitable VESA 200x200 mounting bracket. Use M6 bolts and assembly torque of 2 Nm (max allowed torque is 2.5 Nm).
    Warning: Make sure to use appropriate bolts when attaching the device. The maximum length is 10mm + the thickness of the VESA mount used. Using the wrong size bolt may damage the device.
  4. Attach the mounting bracket to the ceiling, wall or mast, making sure that the installation surface can carry the weight of the device. Please follow local safety regulations and use a safety wire if needed. Position the Locator as needed and tighten all fasteners.

    If the Locator is tilted, make sure that the device is installed the right way up with the cables attached from below to allow rainwater to run off the device.

Additional Tips

Tip: Carry out a test installation before ordering all of the installation parts for a larger project.
Important: Please check the local authorities’ safety requirements and if necessary, use a safety wire to ensure a safe installation.
Warning: Opening the Ventilation plug or the retaining nut for the Ethernet connector and/or the Micro USB connector will void the warranty.
