2 - Introduction
Introduction
Ovazone-Core-T-… is an indoor air quality wireless transmitter and part of Nokeval Ovazone product
family. The basic model Ovazone-Core-T-RH-Lux measures temperature, humidity and illumination.
The purpose of the illumination measuring is concluding if a room (the lights) is in use and whether the
sun shines inside; it is not accurate.
When the model name has a –CO2 suffix, the device also measures carbon dioxide concentration up to
2000 ppm. This model needs to see fresh air at least once a week to be able to auto calibrate itself.
This model is not suitable for premises that are continuously occupied; such premises result carbon
dioxide measurement to show smaller values than in reality.
Ovazone-Core-Router is a device without sensors. It can be used to extend the coverage of the wireless
network as it works as a repeater.
The devices work with a battery, but they can be powered with an external 5 V power with a USB cable
or a 2-wire cable.
Ovanet is Nokeval’s second generation radio network, which uses Wirepas Connectivity technology and
Nokeval’s own additions. The network uses 2.4-2.48 GHz band, which is available all over the world. The
product names basically begin with the Ovazone prefix.
Every device in the network, also the battery powered ones, will function as a repeater by assisting
devices located far away from the gateway, effectively forming a mesh network.
The network has node devices producing measurement data, and one or more gateways. The gateway
connects the network to other systems. Examples of the gateway devices are Ovazone-Wave-Link and
Ovazone-Cell-Link. They are used to deliver the data of the radio network to the Ovaport service.
Each device, including nodes and gateways, has to be set to the same Ovanet network. The Ovanet
network number has to be chosen between 1-16777214. It should be generated with a random number
generator, to minimize the probability to accidentally choose the same network number as in another
network located nearby. By default, the devices are set to the network number 6829663, which can be
used if there are no other Ovanet or Wirepas Connectivity networks within a couple of hundred meters.
If two networks have the same number by accident, the node devices may connect to a wrong network
and the data is not delivered to the desired gateway.
Each device has a unique Ovanet address. It is set at the factory and there is no need to change it. The
address is visible in the back label of the device.
The devices automatically change their radio frequency seeking suitable frequencies in the crowded 2.4
GHz band. However, at power-up the devices need to find other devices in the network, for which a
common radio frequency is needed. All the devices of the network need to be set to the same radio
channel between 1-28. Usually the default channel 1 is ok.
There is no need to configure any other radio network settings. The network searches automatically for
the best connections and updates them if needed.
The open space range between the nodes is about 200 meters and indoor range is some tens of meters
depending on the construction materials. Placing the devices near a metal surface will decrease the
range.

Installation
Attachment
Attach the device to the measuring location with one of the following ways:




Set it standing on a shelf, on top of a cabinet or some other suitable surface.
Screw two screws to a wall, one 60 mm higher than the other and leave them projecting a little.
Attach the wall holder to a wall with two countersunk head screws and snap the device to the
wall holder.
You can also order separate Ovazone-Core-Node-case magnetic attachment set (product code
97407), screw it behind the device and snap the device itself to an iron based surface.
Power supply
If you use the device with a battery, open the case cover by pushing the top part of the case and pulling
the cover away from the case. Unless already present, set a D battery to the battery holder according to
the illustration inside. The battery is worth using even when an external power is connected, because
the battery is used during a power outage.
4 - Installation
If you want to supply the device with a USB charger, plug one to the micro USB connector at the left
side of the case. A 500 mA charger is sufficient. When the supply is on, a LED lights green on the PCB.
Alternatively, an external 5 V DC supply can be connected to the round holes of the push-in spring
connector J11 with 0.2-0.5 mm2 conductors, the positive wire to the left. Strip the wires approximately 6
mm. The cables can be detached by pushing a small flat screwdriver or some other spike to the
rectangular holes. Again when the supply is on, a LED lights green on the PCB.
The external supply cable can be pushed to the grooves back side of the case. The blocks located in
both ends of the grooves can be punched or bent away.
Power up
Slide the ON/OFF switch to position 1. The PWR LED should be lit green for a moment.
Configuration
The device works with its default settings, but you can change the settings if needed:






Open the case cover by pushing the top part of the case and pulling the cover away from the
case.
Connect a Nokeval DCS772 programming cable and a POL-3PIN adapter to your computer.
Connect the POL-3PIN adapter to the J6 POL connector of the device. The polarity does not
matter.
Launch the Mekuwin program (available for free at www.nokeval.com).
In Mekuwin, choose Port=DCS772, Protocol=SCL, Baud=9600, Address=0 or 126. Click Direct.
A new window will open. It has branches for different configurations.

Conf menu settings
Temp + Humi -> Period
This setting determines the measuring and transmitting period of temperature and humidity. The
allowed range is 5…7200 seconds. The real transmitting period may vary a bit. The default is 240. This
setting has strong impact on the battery life. Avoid using too short periods, because it will cause faster
battery exhaustion. By setting the period to value 0, the measurement is turned off.
Lux
This setting determines the measuring and transmitting period of illumination in the same way as the
previous setting.
CO2 -> Period
See Temp + Humi -> Period.
CO2 -> Sampling time
This setting determines how many seconds CO2 concentration is measured. The bigger the value, the
less noisy reading, but the battery is exhausted faster. A suitable value is 30 seconds.
CO2 -> Autocal -> Period (h)
This setting determines how many hours passes before the device performs an auto calibration. A good
period setting is 192 hours which is a little more than a week as the device timer is not accurate.
CO2 -> Autocal -> Base level
The device looks for the lowest reading from the period and if that differs from this setting, the device
adjusts the future measurement readings down or up as needed. This is what the auto calibration
means. The base level is typically 400, which is the clean air concentration or a little more.
6 - Installation
CO2 -> Autocal -> Max adjust
This setting limits the maximum adjust that is done at a time. Good value is 50.
CO2 -> Manucal
This allows manually calibrating the CO2 offset. Enter the real CO2 level and press the Now button. Wait
a moment.
VOC -> Period
See Temp + Humi -> Period on page 6.
Ovanet -> Network
This setting determines the Ovanet network address. It has to be the same on all the radio devices
including the gateway device.
Ovanet -> Channel
This setting determines the Ovanet network channel. It has to be the same on all the radio devices
including the gateway device.
Ovanet -> Auth and Cipher
If you want an encrypted radio network, enter two keys. Every device in the network must share the
same keys. The key can be any text string (a Fowler-Noll-Vo hash will be generated of it) or a 128-bit
hexadecimal value beginning with 0x.
Ovanet -> QoS
This setting must not be touched unless Nokeval support tells you to do so.
Ovanet -> Node address
This shows the unique address of the device, same as in the label. The node address cannot be
changed.

8 - Installation
Usage
Power up and shutdown
If the device is not needed for a while, switch it off by sliding the ON/OFF switch to position 0. The
device will not measure nor transmit measurement data anymore. The device is not participating the
radio network which may affect the range of the other devices in the network.
Power up the device by sliding the ON/OFF switch to position 1. The device will immediately measure
all the physical quantities and transmit them as soon as possible.
If the device is not used for months, it is recommended to remove the battery.
LED indicators
Normally all the indicators are dark to avoid attracting tamperers.
At the bottom of the device there is a button that can be pressed with a ballpoint pen or similar object.
By pressing the button once, the device lights up the indicators for five seconds and indicates different
states:
RF1
RF2
SRV
PWR
Not in use (except in radio coverage state).
Ovanet radio network. Green = OK. Red = problem. If red, check that the distance to the
gateway or another Ovanet device is short enough. If that does not help, check that all the
devices have the same network address and channel configured.
Sensors. Green = OK. Red = problem. If red, check with the Mekuwin program Diag function
which sensor has the problem. The device probably needs service.
Power indicator. Green = OK, red = battery is exhausted or missing.
By pressing the button twice, the device goes for 15 minutes to an active state, where it lights the
indicators continuously and sends the measurement readings frequently. Press the button once to exit
this state. Even without pressing the button, the device will return to the normal state in 15 minutes.
By pressing the button three times, the device goes to the radio coverage mapping state. The RF1
indicator is constantly lit. In addition, one indicator is lit for each radio network neighbor. The
indicators are green if the radio network forms a connection all the way to the gateway. If not, the
indicators are red. Press the button once to exit this state. Even without pressing the button, the device
will return to the normal state in 15 minutes.
Maintenance
Now and then, press the button with a ballpoint pen or any other sharp object to light up the indicators.
If the PWR indicator is red, change a new battery of LR20 type a.k.a. D type, unless you use the device
with the external power and do not need the battery backup.
If any of the other indicators are red, see chapter LED indicators on page 9.
If there is visible dust inside the device, blow it away periodically with pressurized air while avoiding too
strong pressure.
The enclosure exterior can be wiped with a damp cloth soaked in soap or isopropanol, but no drop of
liquid must enter the device.
