What power sources and how much power does Crux LX require?
Crux LX is shipped with a Universal Power Supply 2.5A, 5.1V, Micro USB B, with a non-detachable 1.5m Cable.
Power banks and android mobile phone chargers that support output of 2A / 2.5A (fast charging) can power up Crux LX unit too. At Crux Labs, we use a battery bank with a 2A port option for demo purposes all the time. A 5,000 mAh battery bank keeps Crux LX unit powered up for 6-8 hours, depending upon number of devices (GSM dongles, USB drives, etc) connected to it.
What trunk lines does Crux LX support?
- Does Crux LX support PSTN trunk (landlines)?
Crux LX works in conjunction with various other devices and technologies. At this time, PSTN/POTS (Landline) interface with Crux LX is supported but not offered since the interfacing dongle we are currently dependent on is not cost effective. And, given that PSTN is an old technology soon to be overtaken by SIP, we have prioritized having SIP support along with GSM, that benefits more number of customers. Please get in touch with us if you have a pressing need for PSTN/POTS support and are willing to shell out a few hundred bucks to get this support.
- Does Crux LX support GSM trunks?
Crux LX can support multiple GSM trunks via a 3G to USB modem dongle. We have standardized on Huawei E1750/E1752 dongle as it supports simultaneous use of voice and data, and has undergone multi-tude of tests in the lab with Crux LX. You may directly procure the 3G modem or procure it from Crux Labs at a nominal. If you wish to use the dongle for data only (not voice calling), then theoretically, any 3G dongle should work with Crux LX, though we do not have the means and access to test different dongles. We recommend use of Huawei E1750/E1752.

Crux LX can support multiple SIP trunks, from across the globe. We support SIP trunks over public internet, VPN or even loopback configurations, like Singtel in Singapore.
