I have a Rak 7249 DIY Gateway and I have been having some issue setting it up outside at a roof of 7 floor building. The equipment work fine in the lab at room temperature 21° to 24° C. However when I install the set-up outside the gateway is not working properly and the temperature varies from -4° to 8° C. The gateway works on two times but just for a few minutes (2-5 minutes).I have the POE set-up outside as well may this be the issue?I don’t have anyway to set it up inside. I am only running power through the POE and connecting the gateway using WiFi.
Some things I have tried
- use the POE devices while it is inside my fridge (works fine at -2°c)
- asked maintenance guy from my university to change the power outlet (issue still persist)
- move one floor down from the roof where I am trying to jsntall the gateway (works fine)
- test it ouside ( not at high altitudev- without wind) and works fine.
What the PoE working temperature? I know the gateway should work on temperatures as low as -30 °c.
Any suggestions, recommendation? I have to have this gateway running by the end of the month to be able to make progress on my Thesis.
Thank for the help. If more details are needed just let me know.
