TeamViewer IoT Documentation

The following guidelines help ensure your safety and protect the device from damage. The list of guidelines might not address all potentially hazardous situations in your working environment, so be alert and exercise good judgment at all times.

  • Perform only the procedures explicitly described in the documentation for this device. Make sure that only authorized service personnel perform other system services.
  • Do not perform any actions that create a potential hazard to people or make the equipment unsafe.
  • Keep the area around the device clear and free from dust before, during, and after installation.

Edge Gateway (Starter Kit)

  • The Edge Gateway must be installed by knowledgeable, skilled persons familiar with local and/or international electrical codes and regulations.
  • The Edge Gateway is not designed for use in wet environments. If the Edge Gateway is to be installed in a wet environment, depending on the location and environment, it must be installed in a panel box or enclosure with an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP54, IP65, or higher.
  • To reduce the risk of electric shock, power to the DC+ and DC- terminals must be provided by a power supply or transformer/rectifier circuit that is designed with double-insulation. The power supply or power circuit source must comply with local codes and regulations; for example, in the USA, NEC Class 2 (SELV/limited energy circuit, or LPS circuitry). If powered by a battery, double-insulation is not required.
  • When installing the Edge Gateway, the responsible party or integrator shall use the 12-57 VDC or Power over Ethernet (PoE) power source 37-57 VDC, with a minimum of 13 W power already present as part of the client’s installation.
  • Ensure that the power source providing power to the Edge Gateway is reliably grounded and filtered such that the peak-to-peak ripple component is less than 10 percent of the input DC voltage.
  • When installing the Edge Gateway 3001 and 3002, use a cable appropriate for the load currents: 3-core cable rated 5 A at 90°C (194°F) minimum, which conform to either IEC 60227 or IEC 60245. The system accepts cables from 0.8 mm to 2 mm. The maximum operating temperature of the Edge Gateway is 70⁰C (158°F). Do not exceed this maximum temperature while operating the Edge Gateway inside an enclosure. Internal heating of the Edge Gateway electronics, other electronics, and the lack of ventilation inside an enclosure can cause the operating temperature of the Edge Gateway to be greater than the outside ambient temperature. Continuous operation of the Edge Gateway at temperatures greater than 70⁰C (158°F) may result in an increased failure rate and a reduction of the product life. Ensure that the maximum operating temperature of the Edge Gateway when placed inside an enclosure is 70⁰C (158°F) or less.
  • When installing the Edge Gateway 3003, use a cable appropriate for the load currents: 3-core cable rated 5 A at 90°C (194°F) minimum, which conform to either IEC 60227 or IEC 60245. The system accepts cables from 0.8 mm to 2 mm. The maximum operating temperature of the Edge Gateway is 60⁰C (140°F). Do not exceed this maximum temperature while operating the Edge Gateway inside an enclosure. Internal heating of the Edge Gateway electronics, other electronics, and the lack of ventilation inside an enclosure can cause the operating temperature of the Edge Gateway to be greater than the outside ambient temperature. Continuous operation of the Edge Gateway at temperatures greater than 60⁰C (140°F) may result in an increased failure rate and a reduction of the product life. Ensure that the maximum operating temperature of the Edge Gateway when placed inside an enclosure is 60⁰C (140°F) or less.
  • Always ensure that the available power source matches the required input power of the Edge Gateway. Check the input power markings next to power connector(s) before making connections. The 12-57 VDC (1.08-0.23 A) or the PoE power source must be compliant with local Electrical Codes and Regulations.
  • To ensure the protection provided by the Edge Gateway is not impaired, do not use or install the system in any manner other than what is specified in this manual.
  • If a battery is included as part of the system or network, the battery must be installed within an appropriate enclosure in accordance with local fire and electrical codes and laws.
  • The system is for installation in a suitable industrial enclosure (provides electrical, mechanical, and fire hazard protection).
  • The core module only can be wall-mounted (without the need for an additional enclosure).

Electrical

  • Inspect portable cord-and-plug connected equipment, extension cords, power bars, and electrical fittings for damage or wear before each use. Repair or replace damaged equipment immediately.
  • Use extension cords or equipment that is rated for the level of amperage or wattage that you are using.
  • Be aware that unusually warm or hot outlets or cords may be a sign that unsafe wiring conditions exists. Unplug any cords or extension cords from these outlets and do not use until a qualified electrician has checked the wiring.
  • Switch all products OFF before connecting them to a power supply.

Cleaning

  • Do not clean tools or products with flammable or toxic solvents.
