FAQ

What is IP rating

IP stands for Ingress Protection. Its a standard we use to check the sealability of a product once it is installed.

It is composed as IP## , where first digit is for dust/solid objects and the 2nd digit, is for liquids.
Here is the meaning for each numerical code:

First Digit Description
0 No protection
1 Ingress of solid object diameter 50 mm is protected
2 Ingress of solid object diameter 12.5 mm is protected
3 Ingress of solid object diameter 2.5 mm is totally protected
4 Ingress of solid object diameter 1.0 mm is totally protected
5 Protected against harmful dust
6 Totally protected against dust

2nd Digit Description
0 No protection no protection against liquid object No test
1 Protection against water drop vertically
2 Protection against water drop 15° Tilt from its normal position
3 Protection against water spray 60° from the vertical direction
4 Protection from water splash from all direction
5 Protection from water jets from all direction
6 Protection from strong water jets from all direction
7 Protection from water dip 1 m depth water for 30 min
8 Protection from water sink should be decided between customer and manufacturer

How do I find out which clients are connected to the soft AP I created using my Laird Wifi module with Linux

Once you have created the soft AP on your Linux system and have successfully connected clients to the soft AP you can issue the command

# iw wlan0 station dump

to get a list of connected clients.

Note: the interface name (here: wlan0) might be different in your system.

How do I set up an open hotspot using Network Manager?

You can use the Network Manager command line interface to create an open hotspot using this command:

nmcli con add con-name open_hotspot ifname wlan0 type wifi ssid yourSSID mode ap wifi.band bg wifi.channel 6 ipv4.method shared

 

Is there an external IO pin on the IG60 Laird Linux I can use for my purposes?

Yes, there is one pin (4) on the power supply connector that can either be configured as an input or output.

The same pin can be connected to the AD converter of the IG60s host processor by software.

Consult Lairds application note "Configuring external I/O pin of the IG60 Laird Linux variant as input or output" to configure pin4 and this tutorial to use the AD converter on the host processor:

https://lairdcp.github.io/guides/60-som-dvk-docs/1.0/ad-converter-tutor…

How do I disable the changing of the MAC address after each reboot for the IG60 and 60-SOM DVK running off an SD card with Laird Linux

You need to boot into Linux and after Login log in issue the command

fw_setenv ethaddr <desired MAC address> 

for example:

fw_setenv ethaddr AABBCCDDEEFF

and reboot

You can read out the address previously set with:

fw_printenv ethaddr

How do I connect my IG60 with LairdLinux to a console on a PC without serial port?

On the LairdLinux versions of the IG60 (455-00006, 455-00076, 455-00084 or 455-00088) you can access the console port by either attaching a USB to Serial adapter to the IG60 USB port and a null modem cable to your computer or by attaching a USB to serial cable to the IG60 USB port and a null modem adapter to your computer.

Also on the IG60-Serial (455-00006) or the IG60-Serial+LTE (455-00084), you can connect a null modem cable to the serial port on the IG60 and your computer.  

Note: You are not able to access the console on a GreenGrass version of the IG60 (455-00008, 455-00081, 455-00085 or 455-00089).
