Step 1 – Record Your IMEI Number
Before installation, the Iridium Edge’s IMEI number must be recorded along with the installation location. The Iridium Edge’s IMEI number is the network address for the Iridium Edge and it is used for provisioning, billing, and to send or receive messages to and from the device. It is located on the bottom of the Iridium Edge.
Step 2 – Select a Mounting Location
The mounting location is critical to ensure a safe installation and reliable operation. The installer should consider the following guidelines:
Step 3.1 – Mounting Iridium Edge
Iridium Edge can be mounted in three methods as shown:
Note: The Accessory Bag that comes with Iridium Edge is only required for the Bottom Mount installation.
Step 3.2 – Screw Mount Installation
Iridium Edge is designed to be mounted with four M4 screws. Hardware must be provided by the Installer.
Step 3.3 – Bottom Mount Installation
In the bottom mount configuration, Iridium Edge is held in place with a single screw. The items in the Accessory Bag are required for this type of installation.
Step 3.4 – Tape Mount Installation
The tape mount is for a permanent installation. Do not use it for evaluation or application testing.
Step 4 – Mating Cable Installation
Once a mounting location is determined, follow the guidelines below when installing the cable:
Warnings – Read All Warnings
Prior to using the Iridium Edge, you must ensure that you read and understand the User Manual including the safety warnings and information. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death.
Installation – Warning
Always secure power cables. Failure to secure cables could result in fraying or failure of the power cable, resulting in fire and or failure of the device. These hazards could cause serious injury or death.
Installation – Caution
Install the Iridium Edge safely and securely. Failure to do so could result in dislodging of the Iridium Edge, especially when operating in areas of high winds or when mounted on moving vehicles, which could result in injury or damage.
Ground – Warning
Properly ground the Iridium Edge. Failure to ground the Iridium Edge could result in unexpected currents, which could cause serious injury or death.
Use proper cables that have been supplied by a Service Provider. Use of improper cables can result in damages to equipment, property, or persons.
Warning – Use power and ground conductors of proper gauge. Use of improper gauge power cables could result in exposing cables to excessive heat which could cause fire, resulting in serious injury or death.
Caution – Use only molded back shell IP67 connector with Iridium Edge. Failure to do so could create an improper seal, allowing moisture and water vapor to enter the Iridium Edge’s pigtail which in turn could lead to corrosion and damage to the device, resulting in injury or damage.
Explosive Atmosphere/Blasting Areas Warning – Power down or turn off the Iridium Edge when in a “blasting area” or in areas marked as: “Turn off two-way radio.” Obey all signs and instructions. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death.
Explosive Atmosphere/Blasting Areas Warning – Turn your device OFF when you are in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. Obey all signs and instructions. Sparks from your device in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in serious injury or death.
External Fuse Warning
The Iridium Edge must be powered through a fuse or current limited power supply. Failure to do so could cause large current draws if unexpected or inadvertent shorts occur in either Iridium Edge device or in its mating cable. Any large sustained current could result in damage to equipment or in persons.
Regulatory – Aircraft
The Iridium Edge has not been qualified or tested for operation in aircraft. In the United States, use of the device is subject to regulation including 47 C.F.R. 25.285(a) governing use of the device only by the pilot or with pilot consent.
