Tools needed:

  • Phillips Head #2 screwdriver

  • Voltage detector

  • Permanent marker

  • Optional: tape

  • Optional: zip-tie or clamp

1) Turn off the breaker/s powering the Gateway. Use a voltage detector on the Gateway cover plate to confirm there is no power to the system.

2) Remove the top screw to remove the cover plate. When the voltage taps are exposed, use your voltage detector again to confirm there is no current on the voltage tap wires.

3) Make note of the voltage tap wire order. You will need to wire the new system the same way.

* Note which color goes to which phase, e.g. white/brown/orange/yellow = phase N/A/B/C.

4) Make note of the chain numbers,

* There are two chains, "1" and "2", each with two cables = 4 chain cables total.

* Using a permanent marker or tape, make an obvious visible mark to indicate the cables for Chain 1. (Chain 2 will be identifiable by not having any such mark. If only using a single chain, use the same chain on the new Gateway.)

* TIP: Two of the cables (one for each chain) are permanently attached to the Gateway and the attachment clip is a few inches up the cable. Make sure you mark the cable above this clip since the cable below the clip will be removed with the Gateway. (See below).

Mark the cables

5) Disconnect all voltage tap wires and chain cables.

* TIP: you may want to use a zip-tie, tape, or clamp to ensure the cables do not fall back inside the panel.

6) Remove the two screws on the front of the Gateway to remove the body from the mounting bracket. Leave the mounting bracket attached to the panel.

7) If the new Gateway still has the mounting bracket attached, remove it. If it came with an external 4G antenna, screw it onto the "EXT ANT" port on the bottom of the Gateway.

8) Attach the new Gateway body to the existing mounting bracket. Replace the two screws on the front.

9) Reconnect the chain cables and voltage taps according to your notes and markings.

10) Replace the cover plate and top screw.

11) Verify that the Gateway power switch is in the On(1) position.

12) Turn on the breaker/s powering the unit.

13) The Gateway will automatically begin an installation verification program and the diagnostic lights will eventually illuminate green if the installation was successful. If not, see the Error Codes section on p22 of the Installation Manual.

* Note: if you are using 4G/LTE the Wireless light should turn green. If you are not using 4G/LTE, the Wireless light will remain red until you configure the wifi internet connection. See next.

14) If using wifi: Once the Gateway has finished booting up and completed the diagnostic program, proceed to p21 of the install manual to set up the network connection.

* Note: You only need to complete the Wifi internet connection. You do not need to complete any other system configuration. The commissioning settings will be transferred over from the old Gateway.

15) Notify when you're finished completing the system configuration.

Please refer to company policies and local building codes before beginning work on an electrical panel.
