Step 2: Installing the gateway

For the installation of the gateway the following products are needed:

  • Gateway 
  • Ethernet Cable
  • 12V Adapter


The gateway can be mounted using different methods. There are two methods:

  • Tie wraps
  • Screws and plugs


Please follow the steps below to install/mount the gateway and connect it to RmoniWeb:

Connect Gateway (C10 - Internet enabled network) 

  1. Insert the Ethernet Cable into the network connector on the Gateway. Connect the opposite end of the Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port in a dry and clean place near the cooling units (E.g. chef’s office)
  2. Take the 12V adapter and plug it into the power input on the Gateway. Make sure there is a secure connection to a power outlet.


Activation & Setup:

The orange LED at the network connector should remain lit when the Gateway is plugged into a power source and to a patched network outlet.

The green LED (‘’SERVER’’) on the front lid must be lit continuously to indicate that there is a connection to the server. This can take up to 2 minutes.
