MultiTech Conduit

This guide will help you set up the gateway to communicate over The Things Network.


  • MultiTech Conduit AEP or mLinux model.

    Update the Conduit to 5.30 firmware or later to use LoRa Basics Station, which supports channel plan configuration from the Network Server.

  • MultiTech MTAC-LoRa LoRa accessory card, installed as instructed.

    Do not forget to mount the antenna to the mCard after fitting it in the conduit.

  • Computer with USB port and terminal software. Mac OS and Linux come with terminal software. For Windows you can use something like Putty.
  • For the mLinux version you’ll need a USB stick.
