then use the LCD and keypad to determine the IP address and then assign it a fixed IP address. If no
DHCP server is found the unit will fallback to a fixed IP address of 192.168.1.250. Follow the instructions below depending on which scenario applies to your network:
My network supports DHCP:
If your network supports DHCP then simply plug your Ethernet cable into the Node’s Ethernet port
and plug-in the power supply. Check the LCD to see if it has acquired an IP address. If it has, type this
IP address into a web browser. The WSG30 Summary Screen will appear. Click Setup, then Network
from the menu. Disable DHCP and set a fixed IP address. Enter the Gateway, Subnet Mask and DNS
settings as well. The Wireless channel will default to 1. If you have more than one WSG30, you must set
a different channel number for each. Click Save when finished.
*Consult with your network administrator if you’re unsure of the proper settings.
My network does not support DHCP:
If your network does not support DHCP then your WSG30 will set its IP address to 192.168.1.250.
This address should only be used temporarily. Leaving this address as the factory default could result in
networking conflicts if another device is added to your non-DHCP supported network.
If your network does not support DHCP then you will have to use one of the following methods to
change the IP address of the unit for the first time.
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you consult with your Network Administrator concerning all
network related settings.
Network Setup using the Keypad and LCD Display
You can configure the Network settings for your WSG30 using the keypad and LCD. Press Menu, then
press the down arrow to Network Config, then press Enter. A listing of each Network parameter will
appear in the display. The first parameter is the IP Address - press Enter to configure the IP address. A
screen similar to the following will appear:
IP Address
192.168. 1.250
^
Back . + . - . Next
The four keypad buttons correspond to the Back, Next, + and - functions in the display. Use the Back
and Next keys to move the cursor to the right and left. Use the + and - keys to increment or decrement
the values to configure the IP Address. When the cursor is in the last position (far right) the Save option
will appear in place of the word Next. Press Save to store your settings. Repeat this process for each
of the Network parameters in the Network Config menu. Make sure you disable DHCP. Note that the
Wireless Channel will default to 1. If you have more than one WSG30 , you must set a different Wireless
channel number for each.
After you have configured the network settings, open a web browser to access the WSG30 web page.

Chapter 3: Network Configuration
Network Setup using your Computer
There are three additional methods listed below to configure the network settings in the WSG30 .
These all assume that you do not have a DHCP server and, as a result, the WSG30 has configured itself
to the default address of 192.168.1.250. Note that all three options below require you to modify the
Network settings on your computer.
Method 1
Using a RJ45 crossover cable connect your PC to the device. Change the IP settings of your network
connection to something in 192.168.1.xxx that is not the same as the default IP of the WSG30 . You
should now be able to access the Network Configuration page of the unit . Enter the following address
into your web browser:
http://192.168.1.250
Method 2
Using a network hub, connect only your PC and the WSG30 to the hub. Temporarily change the
network IP settings of your PC to something in 192.168.1.xxx range that is not the same as the default
IP of the WSG30 . You should now be able to access the following Network Configuration page of the
device. Enter the following address into your web browser:
http://192.168.1.250.
Method 3
Using a network switch that is configured for DHCP server, connect both your WSG30 and your
computer to the switch. When the WSG30 powers up it should have acquired an IP address from the
switch’s DHCP server. Check the LCD to get the IP address. You should now be able to access the
network configuration page of the device by typing the IP address into your browser.
Parameter Descriptions
MAC Address: This is the Media Access Control address, which in general terms, is the hardware
address for the WSG30 Ethernet port. There is a unique address for all network devices.
DHCP: Enabling this option means that the WSG30 will automatically obtain an IP address on the
network using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Disabling this option means that you
will have to configure the network parameters manually.
IP/Address: This is the entry field for manually configuring the IP address of the WSG30 on your
network. This address is provided by you or your network administrator. It is formatted as a standard
dotted decimal number.
Subnet mask: This is the subnet mask which distinguishes the portion of the IP address that is the
network ID from the portion that is the station ID.
Gateway: A TCP/IP network must have a gateway to communicate beyond the LAN identified by the
network ID. A gateway is a computer or router that is connected to two different networks and can
move TCP/IP data from one to the other. If your TCP/IP network has more than one LAN or if you are
connecting to the Internet, you will need to know the IP address of the gateway that will transfer TCP/
IP data in and out of your LAN. A single LAN that is not connected to other LANs does not require a
gateway setting.
Wireless Channel: The Wireless channel is used to isolate one WSG30 and its associated sensors from
another. Each WSG30 must operate on its own unique channel. Note that the Wireless channel has
nothing to do with the frequency of operation.

Chapter 4: Configuring
Wireless Sensors
The WSG30 allows you to configure up to 30 wireless sensors. Sensors are available to monitor a variety
of environmental conditions - see Appendix B for a complete list. A successful installation will require
some planning to make sure everything will work smoothly. The WSG30 and sensors utilize mesh
networking technology to ensure reliable wireless communications, but this requires that you follow a
few rules during the setup process.
#1: Upon initial setup, you must configure one sensor at time. DO NOT power-up all of your sensors
and then configure the system. This will not work.
#2: If you will have more than 7 sensors you must configure one or more as a router. See the description
below regarding Routers and End Points. Determine how many routers you will need and configure them
first.
Routers and End-Points
WSG30 wireless sensors can be configured as either routers or end-points. A sensor configured as a
router can be used to provide redundant wireless paths from your sensors back to the WSG30. This is
useful if the distance from your sensors to your WSG30 is too far for direct communication. Note that
routers must be powered by an external power adapter. In this case, the sensor’s AA batteries will serve
as backup in the event of a power failure. Note that routers are required once you exceed 7 end-points.
You can have as many routers as you like.
A sensor configured as an end-point will simply send its readings back to the WSG30, or a nearby
router, and then go into a very low power mode. End-points can be battery-powered and have the
capability of operating on batteries for several years. If the end-point is too far from the WSG30 for
direct communication, a router must be installed to bridge the gap. See the examples below:
Example 1 - Up to Seven Sensors within 300’ of the WSG30
No routers are required in this case. Each sensor is within range for direct communication with the
WSG30 and the number of end -point sensors did not exceed 7.

Chapter 4: Configuring Wireless Sensors
Example 2 - Eight to Fifteen Sensors
At least one sensor will have to be configured as a router. The router should be located mid-way between
the farthest sensor and the WSG30. The routing sensor should be added to the system first.

Adding Wireless Sensors
To add a wireless sensor click Sensors from the main menu, then click the Add button. Enter a sensor
Name, the sensor Serial Number, choose the operating Mode (either End Point or Router), then select the
Sampling Frequency (1-5 seconds). See sample figure below:
Add Sensor screen
16
Chapter 4: Configuring Wireless Sensors
Click Save when finished. Next, insert batteries into the sensor and connect a power supply (if required).
A power supply is required if the sensor is configured to be a Router. A power supply is optional if
configured as an End Point. Monitor the Summary or Sensors screen to confirm that the sensor has
connected.
Notes about Sensor Programming
In end-point mode the sensor consumes minimal power, which allows it to run on batteries. In router
mode the sensor will form a wireless network with the WSG30 and other sensors to increase communication reliability and extend the range of your sensor network. In router mode you must use an external
power supply, in which case the batteries serve as back-up power in the event of a power failure.
The Sampling Rate can be set to a range between 1 and 5 seconds. This selects how often the sensor
reads the monitored value (temperature, humidity, ...). A longer sampling rate will also affect how
frequently the sensor transmits its data to the WSG30. As a result, higher sampling rates will extend
battery life. The chart below illustrates how the programmed sampling rate affects the update interval
and battery life.

Depending on the Wireless channel selected the sensor may take up to several minutes to connect.
Channel 1 provides the fastest sensor connect time. You can continue to add additional sensors during
this time.
Deleting Wireless Sensors
To delete a sensor you must follow the procedure below while the sensor is still online to ensure that
it has successfully detached itself from your WSG30 sensor network. Click on Sensors from the menu.
Next, click the box next to the sensor you want to delete, then click the Delete button at the bottom of
the screen. Wait at least 2 minutes before removing power from the sensor.
Alternatively, you can use the keypad to delete a sensor. Press the Menu key, select Inputs, then press the
Enter key. Use the Up/Down Arrows to locate the sensor you want to delete, then press the Enter key.
Press the down arrow to select Delete, then press Enter. The unit will confirm that you want to delete the
sensor - press Enter to confirm. Wait at least 2 minutes before removing power from the sensor.

Chapter 5: Programming
Introduction
The WSG30 is completely programmable from the internal webpage. This makes it easy to setup,
program, and utilize the features of the device. The web page can be accessed by opening your internet
browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, …) and entering the IP address of your WSG30 (see the
Network Configuration section in Chapter 1 for assistance). The menu items along the blue bar at the
top of screen will help you locate specific programming parameters and features. The Summary screen
is your main page to view the current status of all monitored conditions.
Fig 1: Summary Screen
Setup Menu
The Setup menu provides access to several programming screens dealing with the configuration of the
device. They are divided into the following areas: System, SMTP, Modbus®, Network, & Administration.
A description of each area and the associated programming parameters are described below.
Fig 2: System setup screen
System
The System settings are used to describe and configure general properties of the system. The information entered into the Unit Name, Description, and Location fields will appear at the top of the webpage
18
Chapter 5: Programming
and on e-mail alarm messages. The Unit Name will appear on SMS text messages. Use these fields to
help identify the facility and/or location so that when alarms happen you’ll know exactly where the
trouble occurred.
This screen also provides an entry for a Time Server using the Time Protocol (TP) format on port 37.
This is used to periodically synchronize the system clock to keep it accurate. It is recommended that you
keep this set to the default setting (i.e. time.sensaphone.com).
The Escalation Delay provides the ability to delay alarm delivery to selected users that may only be
interested in receiving alarms if they persist for a particular length of time. Each user can have a programmable Escalation Priority from 1 to 8. When an alarm occurs the WSG30 will deliver alarm
messages to all users at priority level 1. Then it will wait the duration of the Escalation Delay and send
messages to priority level 2, as long as the alarm still exists, and so on with priority 3, 4, 5,…. Once the
alarm no longer exists, those users who have higher escalation levels will not be contacted.
The System Date and Time can be configured by clicking the Change System Time box. Enter the
current date and time, then click Save.
SMTP
The SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) section is where you must configure your e-mail server
settings. To have the unit send e-mail or SMS Text messages, you need to set the SMTP Server name
and the Return e-mail Address. If your SMTP server requires authentication then check the Security
Enabled box and fill-in the Username and Password (if required). The WSG30 also allows you to change
the SMTP port number in the event that your internet service provider is using a nonstandard port. Port
25 is the standard port number, but 587 is also becoming more common as well. Note that the WSG30
will not work with SMTP servers that require TLS or SSL encryption. As a result, it will not work with
web-based e-mail providers such Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo!Mail, or AOL. If you do not have a compatible
SMTP server available to you, then contact Sensaphone Technical support for other options.
Fig 3: SMTP setup screen.
SNMP
The WSG30 contains an SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) feature that allows the device
to be accessed from third party network management software. The unit supports versions v1 and
v2c of the protocol, over both UDP and TCP transports. Read and write access to most of the WSG30

Sensor Programming
This section explains how to program the Sensor parameters for monitoring, alarming, and data logging
based on your requirements. The WSG30 features numerous settings for customizing the operation
of the device. To begin, click on any sensor listed in the table on the Summary or Sensor screens. The
following screen will appear:
Fig 8: Sensor edit screen
22
Chapter 5: Programming
The Sensor Edit page shows all of the parameters that can be programmed for the selected sensor. The
definitions below explain how each parameter functions.
Sensor Enable/Disable: This setting determines if the Sensor is being used (Enabled) or not (Disabled).
Selecting Disabled will remove it from the summary screen and prevent alarms from occurring. It will,
however, maintain its wireless connection.
Name: Enter a name for the sensor you are monitoring which describes its purpose and/or location. The
name will appear on the Summary screen as well as on alarm messages.
Summary Enable/Disable: This setting determines if the sensor will appear or the Summary screen.
Serial Number: This is the sensor serial number.
Mode: This setting specifies the operating mode of the sensor. An Endpoint will periodically send its
data back to the WSG30 based on the programmed sampling rate and then go to sleep. An Endpoint can
be battery powered for up to two years. A Router will act as a wireless network node which will expand
the range of your sensor network. Routers must be powered by an external power supply.
Type: For Temperature sensors you can select either degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. For Dry Contact
sensors you can select either Normally Open or Normally Closed.
Units: The Units field is used to describe the units of measure for the value being monitored. When
Temperature is selected the Units field will automatically display F (Fahrenheit) or C (Celsius). When a
4-20mA type is selected you can enter the appropriate text for the monitored condition (e.g. %RH, PSI,
GPM, RPM,…). When you select Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed (NC) you can choose from
several preset descriptions for the Open and Closed state of the input. The first word always describes
the Open state of the contact and the second the Closed state. If you choose Custom you can enter your
own text for the Open and Closed states. To do this, simply type the words into the lower Units field and
separate them with a slash (/). For example, “Slow/Fast”, “Safe/Danger”, “Dry/Wet”.
Calibration: This field can be used to offset the sensor value either positive or negative if there is some
error in the reading.
Table Low: The Table Low value is used to define the lower range (4mA) of your 4-20mA sensor. (only
appears when the sensor type is 4-20mA)
Table High: The Table High value is used to define the upper range (20mA) of your 4-20mA sensor.
(only appears when the sensor type is 4-20mA)
Alarm Low: This is used to determine the low level at which a sensor has reached the alarm threshold.
The value must fall below the Alarm Limit to trip an alarm.
Alarm High: This is used to determine the high level at which a sensor has reached the alarm threshold.
The value must exceed the Alarm Limit to trip an alarm.
Recognition Time: This is the length of time that an alarm condition must be present before a valid
alarm exists and message delivery is started.
Alarm Hold Time: When an alarm occurs, the Alarm Hold Time will latch the alarm condition for
the programmed time period, thus preventing redundant alarms from sending additional notification
messages. This is useful for alarms that are likely to trip several times within a short time period, such as
motion detectors.
Alarm Delivery Enable/Disable: When Enabled, alarm messages will be delivered, if set to Disabled
alarm messages will not be delivered.
Alarm Delivery Schedule: This weekly schedule sets the time period(s) when alarm delivery will
be active for the selected sensor. The schedule is divided into half-hour increments over the seven
weekdays. A check mark indicates that alarm delivery is active for that time period.
23
WSG30 Users Manual
Fig 9: Sensor schedule screen
Profile Selection: This setting determines which User(s) get contacted when the sensor goes into alarm.
Alarm Reset Enable/Disable: This setting enables or disables the Alarm Reset Feature. The Alarm Reset
feature is used to re-send alarm messages in the event that a fault condition is not corrected in a timely
fashion. If an alarm continues to exist for the duration of the programmed Reset Time (see below) the
alarm will reset (reactivate) and the alarm message delivery process will begin all over again. This is an
optional feature.
Alarm Reset Time: This is the time allowed for an alarm’s fault condition to be corrected before the
WSG30 resets (reactivates) the alarm and begins the message delivery process all over again. It is recommended that this be set to no lower than 30 minutes to prevent numerous messages from being sent.
Return to Normal Enable/Disable: This feature instructs the WSG30 to send a message when a sensor
has changed from an alarm condition back to a normal condition. Anyone who received the original
alarm message will also be sent the Return-to-Normal message.
Datalogging Mode: The WSG30 has two modes of data logging for each sensor: Continuous or While
In Alarm. In Continuous mode the unit will log the value of the sensor on a fixed time interval all the
time. The Normal Interval sets the logging rate while the value is within the normal range. The Alarm
Interval sets the logging rate while the value is an alarm condition. By choosing the While In Alarm
mode you can choose to have the unit only log values when it exceeds the alarm limits. This option
minimizes the amount of data collected and maximizes the storage capacity inside the WSG30.
Normal Datalog Interval: This is the interval that data will be logged while the sensor is within the
programmed alarm limits. To maximize the available memory for datalogging, set the Datalog Interval
for each sensor to multiples of each other. For example, sensor 1 can be set to 30 seconds, sensor 2 to 1
minute, sensor 3 to 5 minutes, etc…
Alarm Datalog Interval: This is the interval that data will be logged while the sensor is beyond the
programmed alarm limits. (Note: this is regardless of the programmed Alarm Recognition Time).
24
Chapter 5: Programming
Datalogging Capacity
The datalogging capacity of the WSG30 varies depending on how many sensors you’re logging and
what the logging interval is for each. Memory is maximized if the logging interval for each sensor is in
multiples of each other. For example, if sensor 1 is set to 1 minute and sensor 2 is set to 5 minutes, you’ll
get better memory usage than if sensor 1 were set to 1 minute and sensor 2 was set to 2.5 minutes.
Here are some typical results:
• If you only log 1 sensor (at any interval), the WSG30 will store a maximum of 67,000 samples
• If you log 15 sensors at the same interval, the WSG30 will store 238,000 samples of each sensor
• If you log 30 sensors at the same interval, the WSG30 will store 243,000 samples samples of each sensor
Once the datalogger is full it will start overwriting the oldest records.
Profiles
This section explains how to setup User accounts (Profiles) including Username, Password, Access Level,
Escalation Level, Schedules, and Contact methods. To begin, click on Profiles from the menu bar. The
following screen will appear:
Fig 10: Profile summary screen
The WSG30 allows you to have up to 8 User Profiles. Each Profile can have up to 4 contacts (e-mail,
SMS-Text Message, or SNMP trap). You can choose to have a secure system with separate Usernames
and Passwords for each Profile, or you can choose to make the device accessible with no security (e.g. no
login required). Note that to have a secure system using Usernames & Passwords you must first create an
Admin password on the Admin Setup screen.
To add a new Profile click the Add button. To edit an existing Profile, click on the user’s name in the
table. The following screen will appear:
A description of each parameter is described below.
Enable/Disable: An Enabled Profile can login to the system and alarm messages will be delivered. A
Disabled Profile cannot login and no alarm messages will be delivered. This feature is useful to temporarily suspend access or alarm delivery without deleting all of the Profile’s programming.
Name: Enter the User’s name in this field.
Username: Enter a Username for login purposes (optional)
Password: Enter a Password for login purposes (optional)
Access Level: If you are configuring a secure system then you must assign the Profile either Read-Only
access or Read-Write access. Read Only access means that this Profile can only view the Summary
page and query the History logs. Read-Write access gives the Profile full programming privileges to the
system except for the Network and Admin screens.
25
WSG30 Users Manual
Escalation Priority: This can be set to any number between 1 and 8. Profiles set to escalation level 1 will
immediately receive alarm messages. Those set to higher escalation levels will have their alarm messages
delayed by the time entered for the Escalation Delay on the System Setup screen. If the alarm condition
resets or corrects itself before the Escalation delay expires then no message(s) will be sent to those users
with a higher escalation setting. This feature is useful for staggering alarm message delivery based on the
duration of the alarm condition.
Profile Delivery Schedule: This weekly schedule sets the time period(s) when alarm delivery will
be active for the selected Profile. The schedule is divided into half-hour increments over the seven
weekdays. A check mark indicates that alarm delivery is active for that time period.
Contact Programming
The WSG30 allows you to program up to 4 Contacts per Profile. The Contacts can be either: E-mail,
SMS-Text Message, or SNMP Trap. Each contact can have a programmable Schedule so that you only
receive messages when your Contact schedule is enabled. A Test button is also provided to check your
programming. To add a contact click the Add button:

Chapter 7: Wireless Sensors
WSG Wireless Temperature sensor
INTRODUCTION
The WSG Wireless Temperature sensor provides remote temperature monitoring
without running wires. Temperature data is sent from the sensor to the WSG30
via an integrated 2.4GHz Wireless radio. The device can transmit its signal up to
300’ indoors and even greater distances when it has line-of-site. The WSG30
series of Wireless sensors also feature mesh networking technology, which allows
each sensor to be used as either a Wireless sensor/router or as a low-power
battery operated sensor (also referred to as an end point). When used as a router,
greater distances can be realized because each sensor/router adds another 300’ of
range to the system. The sensor comes with 2 AA alkaline batteries which will
power the sensor for up to 2 years (end point mode). An optional plug-in power
supply is also available, in which case the batteries function as backup power if main AC power fails
(power supply required for router mode).
NOTE: Do not install the sensor in a dirty, humid, or corrosive environment. Do not install the
sensor in close proximity to other 2.4GHz devices (WiFi, etc). Do not install the device inside of a
metallic enclosure as this will impede it’s ability to Wirelessly communicate with the WSG30 .

Battery Installation
Carefully separate the top of the enclosure from the bottom. Locate the battery holder on the circuit
board. Take note of the polarity markings identifying the positive and negative ends of the batteries.
Install the batteries. Re-attach the top and cover.
Power supply Wiring (Router Mode)
When using your wireless sensor in Router mode, you must use an external power supply (Sensaphone
Part #XFR-0041). This is required because router mode uses more power than can be supplied by
batteries alone for an extended period of time. You can also use a power supply when the sensor is
configured as an End Point, which will greatly extend the life of the batteries and minimize the need to
change them.
To connect the power supply, remove the sensor cover and locate the screw terminals labeled “5V DC”.
connect the positive wire from the power supply to the “+” terminal. Plug the power supply into an
appropriate outlet.
MOUNTING
The temperature sensor can be mounted directly on a flat surface.
Consideration should be given as to whether or not an electrical outlet will
be required if using the optional power supply. Mount the sensor as high as
possible to provide for optimal Wireless transmission. When installed within
a building where the Wireless signal must travel through several obstructions,
the sensor should be located within 250’ of the WSG30 or within 300’ of a
sensor/router.

WSG Wireless Humidity sensor
INTRODUCTION
The WSG Wireless Humidity sensor provides remote monitoring without
running wires. Data is sent from the sensor to the WSG30 via an integrated
2.4GHz Wireless radio. The device can transmit its signal up to 300’ indoors and
even greater distances when it has line-of-site. The WSG30 series of Wireless
sensors also feature mesh networking technology, which allows each sensor to be
used as either a Wireless sensor/router or as a low-power battery operated sensor
(also referred to as an end point). When used as a router, greater distances can
be realized because each sensor/router adds another 300’ of range to the system.
The sensor comes with 2 AA alkaline batteries which will power the sensor for
up to 2 years (end point mode). An optional plug-in power supply is also
available, in which case the batteries function as backup power if main AC power fails (power supply
required for router mode).
NOTE: Do not install the sensor in a dirty, humid, or corrosive environment. Do not install the
sensor in close proximity to other 2.4GHz devices (WiFi, etc). Do not install the device inside of a
metallic enclosure as this will impede it’s ability to Wirelessly communicate with the WSG30 .

The Wireless 4-20mA Sensor can be used with or without the internal 24VDC supply. When the
internal supply is used to power the transducer the device must be powered by an external power
supply, in which case the batteries are used as a backup in the event of a power failure. In this scenario
the batteries will last approximately 15 hours.
When the 4-20mA sensor is used with the internal 24VDC supply disabled, you can operate it on
battery power only. The approximate battery life is 2 years at a sampling frequency of 3 seconds.

24 VDC Power Supply
The Wireless 4-20mA sensor has a internal 24 VDC power supply that is intended to be used to power
your 4-20mA transducer. It can provide up to 30mA of current. If your transducer does not require an
external power supply then you can disable the 24V supply in the sensor by moving the 24VDC jumper
on the circuit board to the OFF position. This will conserve battery power in the event of a power
failure.

When using your wireless sensor in Router mode, you must use an external power supply (Sensaphone
Part #XFR-0041). This is required because router mode uses more power than can be supplied by
batteries alone for an extended period of time. You can also use a power supply when the sensor is
configured as an End Point, which will greatly extend the life of the batteries and minimize the need to
change them.
To connect the power supply, remove the sensor cover and locate the screw terminals labeled “5V DC”.
connect the positive wire from the power supply to the “+” terminal. Plug the power supply into an
appropriate outlet.
MOUNTING
The sensor can be mounted on a wall close to the area to be monitored or it can sit directly on a flat
surface. Consideration should be given as to whether or not an electrical outlet will be required if using
the optional power supply. When installed within a building where the Wireless signal must travel
through several obstructions, the sensor should be located within 300’ of the WSG30 or within 300’ of a
sensor/repeater.
Use a pencil to mark the hole locations at the top and bottom of the housing. Install the drywall anchors
(if necessary) to the wall. Attach the housing to the wall using #6 tapping screws.
Connect the Water Rope to the connector on the side of the enclosure. Route the Water Rope in the area
to be monitored. Secure it using the self–adhesive cable clamps.

WSG30 Users Manual
Appendix A: Weekly
Testing Procedure
We recommend that you test your WSG30 system weekly to be sure it is functioning properly. This will
ensure that when a problem arises the WSG30 will be ready to alert the appropriate personnel. A test log
template is included at the back of this manual.
There are several tests that can be performed:
1) Check the status of all monitored conditions on the WSG30 by viewing the web page. This will verify
that the WSG30 and sensors are communicating and that all of the inputs are reading properly. In
addition, you can verify that the electricity is on and that the backup battery is OK.
2) Create an alarm on each Wireless sensor.
Temperature sensors: Heat or cool the sensor.
Humidity sensors: Raise the humidity around the sensor by holding a cup of very hot water
beneath the sensor.
Dry Contact sensors: Open or close the circuit to create an alarm condition.
Water sensors: Apply a small amount of water beneath the sensor or use a wet towel and
touch it to the sensor probes and/or sensing rope.
Power Sensor: Disconnect the sensor power supply from the wall outlet.
Allow the unit to send its alarm message to all programmed contacts. This will make
sure that the WSG30 is programmed properly. It will also prepare personnel to respond
appropriately when they receive a message from the unit.
3) Test the batteries in the WSG30 and each Sensor by unplugging the power supply and making sure
that the device and all of its sensors continue to function.
4) If you require assistance, call Sensaphone Technical Support at (610)558-2700.

Modbus® Data Formats
Bit-Representation
The Modbus® interface supports a programmable bit ordering. Both the byte- and
word-orders may be individually programmed to either little- or big-endian formats.
The default is big-endian byte-order and little-endian word-order. This only applies
to numeric values. Array, string and bit types are always given in the same format.
Bit
Bit values are boolean values where 1 is “true” and 0 is “false”.
uint8, sint16, uint32, sint32
These are integer data formats. The “u” stands for “unsigned”, the “s” stands for
“signed”. The number indicates the number of bits used to represent the data:
8, 16, or 32 corresponding to 1, 2, or 4 bytes respectively. 1 and 2 byte integers
are stored in one Modbus® register while 4-byte integers are stored in two
consecutive Modbus® registers. The byte- and word-orders are programmable.
The integer types may be either fixed-point format or the standard straight
integer format. Fixed-point integer formats are offset by “100”, so divide
the straight binary value by “100” to get the real value. This provides
2 decimal places of precision for a maximum range of ±80000.00.
Float
This is a standard IEEE 754 32-bit floating-point number. All floatingpoint numbers will be in this format and span 2 consecutive Modbus®
registers according to the programmed byte- and word-orders.
String and array
Strings and arrays are strings of 0 or more characters/bytes. They are always
returned first-byte first and last-byte last. Strings are null-terminated with
a binary 0 only if they are smaller than their maximum size. For example, a
“name” string may be up to 32-characters long. A value of “John Doe” would
53
WSG30 Users Manual
be terminated by a “0” because it is less than 32-characters long, but not
a name that is 32-characters long. Arrays are never terminated.
Non-generic data
Timestamps
Timestamps can be decoded using the following equations. “div” means integer
division where the remainder is dropped. “mod” means the “modulus” or “remainder”.
All values start at “0”. For example, Day 0 is the first day of the month and Month
0 is January. The year is offset by -2000, so that a value of 9 indicates 2009.
Seconds
= (Value div 1) mod 60
Minutes= (Value div 60) mod 60
Hours
= (Value div 3600) mod 24
Day
= (Value div 86400) mod 31
= (Value div 2678400) mod 12
Month
Year
= (Value div 32140800)
Timestamps are encoded in the reverse:
Timestamp = (Seconds
* 1) +
(Minutes
* 60) +
(Hours
* 3600 +
(Day
* 86400) +
(Month
* 2678400) +
(Year
* 32140800)
42-byte Arrays (Schedules)
The 42-byte arrays are bitmapped boolean schedule data, where the first
bit of the first byte indicates the first 30-minute block on Sunday morning
(12:00:00am to 12:29:59am) and the last bit of the last byte indicates the
last 30-minute block on Saturday evening (11:30:00pm to 11:59:59pm).
