Power Specification

Power

+12VDC (20W Max); 100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz (AC/DC Power Supply Included)

Initialization

  1. Connect DC Power to the Edge appliance. Use a battery backup Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) for deployments with intermittent or unreliable power.

  2. The system will power up and be online in a few minutes.

Web Portal Configuration for Management

  • Connect Laptop Ethernet interface to the LAN Ethernet Port, configure laptop interface to “obtain IP address automatically” (DHCP).

    • Laptop IP address should be assigned from the 192.168.230.0/24 network space.

  • Open Web Browser on Laptop. Enter in the URL: http://10.0.254.1 (or the gateway [GW] IP address) and return.

  • The EdgeOS Web Portal login page appears. A valid IAM account and password combination may be used if the Network Appliance is online. With a new system, use the temporary login credentials: edge/edge.

  • Portal Dashboard will appear on the “Configuration Wizard” home page. Click on the Menu “3 dots” Icon Upper Right.

    • Internet link status - “Internet (WAN) Status”

    • Internet Performance - “Performance Charts”

    • Device Usage – “Usage Status”

    • Update Configuration - “Configuration Wizard”

Figure 4 Edge Fit Menu

Note: By default, the EdgeFit 4 menu will not show ‘Cellular Controller’ option. It will be shown in the menu only when an external 5G modem is configured as a WAN source. The same is true for VSAT Controller, but currently EdgeFit 4 has the main WAN port configured for Starlink. Therefore, the menu shows VSAT Controller option.

Troubleshooting

  1. DC Power to EdgeFit 4 must be stable, a battery backup Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) required for on vessel operation. Power cycle the unit for at least 5 seconds before powering back on.
