Ensure that the device is placed firmly on the cross beam of the container so the vertical hook plates are flush against the beam. The device will be kept at place by strong magnets and mounting automatically detected.


Close the left door first and then the right door. The shipment is ready to be transported and monitoring starts.

Do not place the device at the inner side of nudges. This is incorrect mounting.
