Update: The new R3000-Lite has a different power connector to that used on the R3000 Router. A suitable CONNECTOR is supplied with each unit in the box. ACTE will also supply PSUs with the appropriate connector pre-attached to the PSU cable for each Router. Two part numbers exist for PSUs which look identical except for the different size power connector.

Services Update - Valuable cloud services support Router deployment
Web-Page - An introduction to Cloud services which can greatly ease the managment of routers and access to data from connected devices. These valuable, scalable solutions help keep costs down while speeding up the roll-out from the very first device to the complete 'fleet'.
Possibly not for the faint hearted, and possibly with better results after turning down the techno-pop pumping away in the background. This video does show that prototypes can be successfully built on the bench using these simple techniques. Volume production is also simplified by virtue of the devices' simplicity, pad layout, flexibility with solder types and no x-ray inspection requirement.
A very detailed guide to SMD technology manufacturing with these devices is also available.
