inSentry Pro

1 Introduction

The inSentry Pro is a connectivity device for remote monitoring of the temperature, humidity, and status of 24 environmental monitoring devices (EMDs) via a standard web browser. Six sets of relay output are equipped to trigger extended devices by events, providing detailed information and flexible monitoring.

1.1 Features

The inSentry Pro supports the following features:

Hot-swapping

You can install the EMDs safely without powering down the inSentry Pro.

Temperature and humidity monitoring

You can monitor the temperature and humidity of any desired environment to protect critical equipment.

Contact closure status monitoring

You can monitor the status of contact devices to protect your critical equipment.

The inSentry Pro functions configuration from any

client (password protected)

You can set the inSentry Pro settings from any SNMP management station or by web browser using HTTP forms and objects.

E-mail notification

Supports e-mail notification through SMTP via e-mail client software, phone, or alphanumeric pager when alarms are triggered or contact status changes.

History logs and events

When the temperature and humidity values exceed the user-defined limits, or the status of the contact closure changes, the logs are recorded in the History Log of the inSentry Pro.

6

1. Introduction

Relay output support

You can attach external alarms to the relay outputs to notify you audibly when an event is triggered. You can also attach other types of sensors to the dry contact port of EMD to enhance the functionality of the system. These sensors can include security detectors, smoke detectors, water leak sensors, vibration sensors, motion detectors, and air flow sensors.

2. Installation

When you have successfully installed and powered on the inSentry Pro, check the power LED and LCD screen to ensure it is operating properly. The power LED should be green and

System Power On should be displayed on the LCD screen.

The power LED is a bi-color LED, whose changes state depending on the alarm level.

LED color Alarm Level

Green None

Green Informational

Red Warning

Red Critical

Note: If the sensor or output device is enabled from the Configuration page but the device is not connected, it is considered as an alarm of communication loss. Therefore, the LED will be flashing.

2.3 LCD Screen Overview

You can view and configure main system settings using the

LCD screen and the Down and Set buttons on the front of the inSentry Pro (see Front View on page 9 for exact location of the switches).

The LCD screen operates in two modes: idle mode and

operation mode.

4.1 Manipulating Network Routing

Table in Windows

Normally, if the workstation and the inSentry Pro are in the same subnet, you can access the inSentry Pro directly by the web browser installed on the workstation. If not, follow the steps below to use the “route add” command to manipulate the network routing table in your workstation.

1. Procure a workstation (with Microsoft Windows 95, 98,

ME, NT4.0, 2000, or XP installed) and set up the TCP/IP protocol, if necessary.

2. Run command shell (i.e. Windows MS-DOS prompt).

3. Enter the following command to add a routing condition:

route add <inSentry Pro IP> <workstation IP>, e.g.,

“route add 172.17.7.18 210.67.192.147”, and press Enter.

4. Managing inSentry Pro via Web Browser

ƒ Set Point: Enter a temperature or humidity value over or under which an alarm will be triggered. You can enter values for warning or critical levels. The valid ranges are as follows:

Temperature: -15°C (5 °F) to 65 °C (149 °F)

Humidity: 5% to 95%

ƒ Hysteresis: A sensors value could be floating around the configured threshold, triggering multiple alarms.

Set the hysteresis will help to prevent the alarm being constantly activated and deactivated in this situation.

For example, if the low warning threshold point is 20 and hysteresis is 3, then the alarm will activate when the value reaches 20 but will not deactivate until the value reaches 23.

For the contact alarm sensors, the hysteresis can be used to adjust the sensitivity of an alarm. The alarm will be active or inactive only after the alarm stays in the same state of the hysteresis value (in seconds).

ƒ Calibration Offset: If the measurement value of a sensor does not comply with the actual environment for whatever reason, a calibration offset value can be set to adjust the final sensor reading.

For example, if a sensor reports 43% humidity in an environment where humidity is at 45%, you can set the humidity offset to 2% so the sensor can adjust its final reading.

ƒ Alarm Type: If an alarm is connected to the inSentry

Pro, select from Normal Open, Normal Close, High

Active, Low Active, or Disabled.

Normal Open & Normal Close are used for a two wire detector that emulates an open/close state. High

27

Active and Low Active are used when a ‘contact closure’ type detector is attached.

ƒ Event Output: Select from D01 or D02 as the event output when a digital output is connected. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to configure output control settings. Check Show advanced parameters and the following will display:

Configure the following settings:

ƒ Device Name: Enter the device name.

ƒ Normal Start-up: Select On(Close) or Off(Open) to configure the normal status of the device.

ƒ Action: Select to Enable or Disable digital output.

ƒ Manual Control: Select Turn On to turn on a device manually or Turn Off to turn it off.

ƒ Password: Enter a password for each digital output.

It must be 4 digits long, within the range of 0000

9999.

ƒ Postpone: Enter a value in seconds by which the alarm trigger time can be postponed if necessary. If set to zero, the digital output will be activated as soon as an alarm is triggered.

ƒ Extend: Enter a value in seconds before which the digital output changes back to start up status after an alarm is triggered.

6 Managing the inSentry Pro via

SNMP

To manage your inSentry Pro or EMD via SNMP NMS

(Network Management Station), you may want to customize some of the SNMP settings (such as system name, system contact and system location).

Note: Before using the inSentry Pro in an SNMP environment, the IP address and the gateway must be configured properly. See Chapter 3.1 Configuring network settings for the inSentry Pro for details.

6.1 Setting SNMP Access Control

The inSentry Pro supports SNMP protocol. You can use

SNMP NMS to manage EMD through the network. The IP address of the workstation must be entered in the inSentry

Pro write access table to prevent unauthorized users from configuring the inSentry Pro via HTTP or SNMP protocols.

Note: If you do not specify the IP address of the workstation in the Access Control Table (via serial port or Telnet) or the SNMP/HTTP Access Control (via web browser) in the inSentry Pro, you can only view the

EMD status from the SNMP, and will not be able to perform any configuration on the inSentry Pro or the

EMD. (See Chapter 3.1 Configuring network settings for the inSentry Pro, and Chapter 3.2Configuring inSentry Pro via Telnet, for details.)

6.2 Setting the SNMP Trap Receiver

To configure the SNMP trap receiver setting, please access the inSentry Pro via web browser and go to the “System/ Trap

Receivers” page (see Chapter 4.5.2).

6.3 Setting up SNMP Manager Software

Follow the steps below to set up SNMP manager software:

1. Add the MIB file in the inSentry Pro CD-ROM to the MIB database of the SNMP manager.

2. Search for the inSentry Pro in the network.

3. To access the inSentry Pro SNMP agent, use ‘public’ for the GET community string, and use the read/ write password (default is admin) for the SET community string.

GET community string: public

SET community string: admin

For more information, please refer to the MIB file on the inSentry Pro CD-ROM.
