The RCloud™ module is able to query, via wireless connection, the RStone™ devices installed nearby and send measurement data to a web portal. By logging into the web portal you can view, in real time, all the parameters of the current measure and previous ones. Data are collected every hour and updated on the web site, that is constantly available anywhere, via web browser or mobile application, available on AppStore (RCloud-Remote Radon Sensing). 4 2 Product Description 3 1 2 1. Ethernet Plug 2. Power Supply Jack (10 Vdc) 3. Ventilation Holes WARNING: Do not cover ventilation holes during operation of RCloud™. The heat generated during operation may damage the device. RCloud™ has an Ethernet plug for the internet network connection and a power supply jack for the power grid connection. To ensure a good connection it is recommended to use a standard category-5 Ethernet cable. In order to avoid possible device damages it is recommended to use only the adapter provided in the box. ATTENTION: The device needs to be connected to the power grid in order to operate. In case of power failure RCloud™ stops its operations. To restore RCloud™ operation is necessary to restore the connection between the module and the RStone™ with the appropriate procedure described below. ATTENTION: If RCloud™ is purchased together with RStone™ you will be provided with two equals power adapters foundable in the box. It’s possible to use both the power adapter, for both the devices without any difference. 5 Account Information Information about your own RCloud™ and personal account webpage are provided with RCloud™ purchasing. You can find all information inside the box, at the end of this Quick Start Guide. The information are described here below. 1 2 3 \ 4 \ 5 1. Feed ID: Unique account number where data are sent. 2. Personal web page: Link to your personal web page. Measurement data are sent and visible here. 3. RCloud™ Product Number: Your RCloud™ unique product number. 4. MAC Address: Physical network identifier of your device. 5. Api-Key: Personal cryptographic key to save/write data on your account. (Not necessary for basic user) 6 3 Using RCloud™ Placing RCloud™ RCloud™ should be placed near the RStone™ device that you want to collect measurement data from. The communications between RStone™ and RCloud™ is provided by a wireless module integrated within the device, so you do not need any physical connection (cable or similar). WARNING: To avoid connection errors between RStone™ and RCloud™, due to possible interferences and/or noise, it is recommended to place RCloud™ at a distance of up to 1-2 meters from RStone™. Connecting RCloud™ Before using RCloud ™ you must have a standard category-5 Ethernet cable. Once you have the cable, connect the device to an Ethernet network socket then connect the device to the grid using the power adapter provided. Starting RCloud™ After grid connection, RCloud™ starts automatically. There is no power button or similar. If the device starts up correctly, and the network cable is properly connected the LEDs under the Ethernet connector will blink. If both LEDs flash asynchronously in order to confirm the proper functioning of the device. If only one or none of the LEDs blink, a malfunction occurred. See the table below for more information. WARNING: RCloud™ needs that the network automatic assignment of IP addresses is enabled (DHCP enabled). If this function is disabled, you must enable it in your router / bridge settings or contact your network administrator. 7 ORANGE LED GREEN LED STATUS • Ethernet cable is not correctly plugged into one or both sockets. • Wrong or damaged Ethernet cable OFF OFF • No network enabled on the socket • Power adapter jack is not properly plugged • Power supply missing • DHCP problem ON OFF OFF ON ON ON • DHCP disabled • Not assigned • The RCloud™ works well 8 Connecting RCloud™ to the web portal Once the RCloud™ device has been connected to the grid and to the network, it is able to communicate with the web portal and send the collected measurement data without any further operation. However, especially at first use or when you connect your device to a new network, you should verify that the connection is active. This can be easily done by accessing your personal area of the web portal. In order to access into your personal area just open your web browser and type the link shown on the RCloud™ technical sheet provided in the box. 9 Each device is programmed to send a packet of test data after 12 seconds to the power-up as a connection test. The test data consist of a transmission of zeroes. Basic users will read Concentration equal to zero, Pro users will read also Temperature, Humidity and Pressure equal to zero. Therefore, by accessing your personal area it is possible to verify that the test data has been received a few moments after connecting RCloud™ to the grid and the network. In order to verify that, the screen needs to be similar to the example below and the “Last updated” indicator must be “a few seconds ago” or few minutes ago. WARNING: Carefully check the indication in the upper right part of the web page. “Last updated” indicator tells you when the last RCloud™ data packet has been received. If the last packet has been received in the last few seconds or minutes the connection was successful. 10 Connecting RCloud™ to RStone™ Once that RCloud™ is powered on and the connection has been checked (recommended in case of first connection ever or new network) it is possible to turn on the RStone™ device and establish a connection with the RCloud™ module. To establish a connection with a RCloud™ device, simply use the same procedure used to connect the RStone™ to the RKey™ in order to use it with the control software. You just need to activate the wireless network on the RStone™ through the device settings menu. Once you have done this the RStone™ automatically recognizes the connection with the RCloud™ and set itself up in measuring mode, sending periodically the data to the web portal. WARNING: Data sending occurs with one-hour frequency, therefore, it is necessary to wait at least one hour after the two devices connection in order to see the first data appearing on the web portal. To enable wireless connectivity on RStone™, simply enter the Settings menu of the device and then confirm on “WIRELESS ON” (press the MENU button 3 times, press ENTER, press ENTER two times again). The wireless activation procedure is described in the RStone™ user manual available at www.rsens.it. WARNING: The RCloud™ device and the RKey™ communicate on the same wireless frequency. It’s not possible to simultaneously use RKey™ and RCloud™ within the same range. Before turning on RCloud ™ and proceed to the connection with RStone™ make sure that within the range there are no RKey™ powered and connected to any USB ports. ATTENTION: Simultaneous starting of a RCloud™ module and a RKey™ device in the same area causes a not-valid working status that may make RStone™ to not work properly. 11 4 Summary Using RCloud™ 1. Place the RCloud™ nearby RStone™ device. (1-2 meter max). 2. Connect the RCloud™ at the power grid with the power adapter provided and to the internet network with a common category-5 Ethernet cable. (If it is the first power-up or you are using a new network ensure that the test packet -see page 15- is received) 3. Turn on RStone™. 4. Activate connection between RStone™ and RCloud™ by activating wireless network on the RStone™ (enter SETTINGS ->WIRELESS -> WIRELESS ON) 5. RStone™ automatically matches with the RCloud™ module (if it is within the range) and starts measuring. It sends measurement data to the web page each hour. 12 13 RSens srl disclaims any responsibility for any typographical errors included in this manual, and reserves the right to make changes to their products in order to improve their functional performance.
