Wireless Internet Modem – Category 6 – Quectel EM060K-GL (New Platform LTE-A)

More Details

The EM060K-GL is an LTE-A Cat 6 module with an M.2 form factor measuring 42.0mm × 30.0mm × 2.3mm, developed in accordance with the 3GPP Release 12 specification, which supports a theoretical downlink peak data rate of 300Mbps and a theoretical uplink peak data rate of 50Mbps. The module is compatible with Quectel’s LTE-A Cat 6 module EM06, Cat 12 modules EM12-G/EM121R-GL/EM120R-GL,Cat 16 module EM160R-GL and 5G modules RM500Q/RM502Q Series, which enables migration between different modules.

The EM060K-GL is designed for the global market and covers nearly all mainstream carriers worldwide. The module supports Qualcomm IZat location technology gpsOne 9HT (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou/Compass and Galileo). The integrated GNSS greatly simplifies product design, and provides quicker, more accurate and more dependable positioning capability.

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows, Linux, Android/optional built-in eSIM) allow the module to serve a wide range of applications such as industrial routers, home gateways, STB, industrial laptops, consumer laptops, industrial PDAs, rugged tablet PCs, and digital signage.

NOTE:  It is strongly recommended to invest in a quality power strip surge protector (i.e., APC, Belkin,…) to use behind a router and/or electronic equipment.  This will help protect against Transients (momentary spikes/surges in voltage or current) that can be detrimental to expensive equipment.  Transient damage to modems are not covered under warranty.  Protect your equipment.

IMPORTANT Exercise extreme caution while installing MHF4 connectors to the modem antenna ports.  The ports are delicate and easily damaged.  Assure that the MHF4 connector is perfectly centered, level and aligned with the modem port.  The MFH4 connector will then snap into place using minimum pressure.  Do not apply excessive force.  A damaged modem connector port is not covered under warranty.
