1.3 Description
The UWTC-REC3 Wireless Receiver provides Web-based monitoring of Temperature and
Humidity. Each Receiver can directly support up to thirty-two (32) Thermocouples, RTD,
Infrared and Humidity wireless Connectors / Transmitters.
The Receiver allows you to monitor and record Temperature and Relative Humidity over an
Ethernet network or the Internet without any special software-just your Web Browser. The
Receiver includes AC adapters to operate on any voltage worldwide from 100 to 240 Vac
and 50 to 60Hz. The Receiver connects directly to an Ethernet Network or the Internet.
Unlike an RS232 or USB device, it does not require a host computer.
The Receiver also provides error detection mechanism for inactive communication and
diagnostic information including signal strength and data transmission success rate to
help trouble shooting potential wireless system installation issues.
The Receiver is an independent node on the network sending and receiving data in
standard TCP/IP packets. It is easily configured from a Web Browser and can be password
protected. From within an Ethernet LAN or over the Internet, the user simply types the IP
address (such as 192.168.1.200) or an easy to remember name (such as "ServRoom" or
"Chicago5") and the Receiver serves a Web Page with the current readings.
The device can trigger an alarm if variables go above or below a set point that you
determine. Your alarm can be sent by email to a single user or to a group distribution list,
including text messages to Internet enabled cell phones and PDA’s. The "Mail Notifier"
software is free and easy to use program for this application.
2
1.3 Description (continued)
The Receiver is easy to install, simple to operate, and features award-winning iServer
technology with an Embedded Web Server that requires no special software.
The Receiver serves Active Web Pages to display real time readings and charts of
Temperature and Humidity. You can also log data in standard data formats for use in a
spreadsheet or data acquisition program such as Excel or Visual Basic. iLog is a free and
easy to use program for logging data to Excel.
The virtual chart viewed on the web page is a Java™ Applet that records a chart over the
LAN or Internet in real time. With the Receiver there is no need to invest time and money
learning a proprietary software program to log or chart the data.
Chart scales are fully adjustable on the fly. For example, the chart can display one minute,
one hour, one day, one week, one month or one year. Temperature and humidity can be
charted across the full span (-40 to 125°C, and 0 to 100% RH) or within any narrow range
such as (20 to 30°C).
The OPC Server software makes it easy to integrate the Receiver with many popular Data
Acquisition and Automation programs offered by Omega, Wonderware, iConics, Intellution,
Rockwell Automation, and National Instruments, among others.
The following example illustrates how you can hookup wireless system to your network:

Figure 1.1 Wireless System on the Ethernet Network
The wireless system consists of a single Receiver and one or more Connector /
Transmitters. Transmitter will send data periodically to the Receiver where it serves as a
gateway between the users and the Transmitter. The users can access the data through
the Receiver’s web server and provided data acquisition software.
A standard web browser can be used to monitor and chart temperature and humidity. The
browser can also be used to configure the device’s IP address, passwords for access and
overall configuration parameters.

PART 3
NETWORK CONFIGURATION
3.1 Ethernet (MAC) Address
MAC (Media Access Control) address is your computer's unique hardware number.
When you're connected to the LAN from your computer, a correspondence table relates
your IP address to your computer's physical (MAC) address. The MAC address can be
found on the label of your device and contains 6 bytes (12 characters) of hexadecimal
numbers XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX hex
For Example: 0A:0C:3D:0B:0A:0B
Remove the small label with the default IP address and there will be room to put
your IP address. See Figure 2.5.
3.2 Network Protocols
The Receiver can be connected to the network using standard TCP/IP protocols. It also
supports ARP, HTTP (WEB server), DHCP, DNS and Telnet protocols.
3.3 DHCP
DHCP, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol enables computers and devices to extract
their IP configurations from a server (DHCP server).
If DHCP is enabled on your Receiver, as soon as the Receiver is connected to the
network, there is an exchange of information between DHCP server and the Receiver.
During this process the IP address, the Gateway address, and the Subnet Mask will be
assigned to the Receiver by the DHCP server. Note that the DHCP server must be
configured correctly to do such assignment.
The Receiver is shipped with DHCP disabled (factory default).
If fixed or static IP address is desired, the DHCP must be disabled.
The DHCP can be enabled by setting the DIP switch #3 to the "ON" position
ON
OFF

DIP switch #3 shown in "ON" position
Figure 3.1 4 Position DIP Switch on the Bottom Side of Receiver
Setting the Receiver’s IP address to 0.0.0.0 will also enable DHCP.
8
3.4 DNS
DNS, Domain Name System enables computers and devices to be recognized over a
network based on a specific name instead of IP addresses.
For example, instead of having to use http://192.168.1.200 (IP address), you would use
only http://z03ec or any sixteen character name stored as Host Name under Access
Control menu in the Wireless System Home Page.
The default DNS name for the Receiver is "z" followed by the last four digits of the
MAC address of that particular Receiver.
1. It is very important to communicate with the network administrator in order to
understand DHCP and its existing configurations on the host server,
before enabling DHCP on the Receiver.
2. The Receivers are shipped with a default static IP address of 192.168.1.200
and Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0.
3. On Windows servers where DCHP and DNS are separate functions it is very
important to configure the DHCP server to communicate with DNS in order
for the iServer’s Host Name to correctly respond. If you cannot access the
iServer using its Host Name, please contact your network administrator to
make sure the DHCP and DNS servers are linked together.
3.5 IP Address
Every active device connected to the TCP/IP network must have a unique IP address.
This IP address is used to establish a connection to the Receiver. Every computer using
TCP/IP should have a unique 32-bit address which is divided into two portions, the
network ID and the host ID. For instance, every computer on the same network uses the
same network ID. At the same time, all of them have a different host ID. For more details
about the IP address see Appendix B.
3.5.1 Default IP Address
The Receiver is shipped with a default IP address of 192.168.1.200 and Subnet Mask of
255.255.255.0. If you are going to use a Web browser or Telnet program to access the
Receiver using its default IP address, make sure that the PC from which you’re
establishing the connection has an IP address that is in the same range as the
Receiver’s IP address (192.168.1.x, where x can be any number from 1 to 254). See
Section 3.5.2.
Your PC’s IP address cannot be the same as the Receiver’s IP address.
You also need to make sure that your PC’s Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0. This is a
good way to access the Receiver over the network and make any configuration changes
needed. If 192.168.1.200 is already in use on your network, use an Ethernet crossover
cable between your computer and the Receiver to change the IP address or any other
settings within the Receiver.
9
3.5.2 Changing TCP/IP Properties on Your Computer
Go to your computer’s Control Panel then Network Connections.
Pick the network with the proper Ethernet card. Right click and choose
Properties
Look for Internet Protocol Version 4
(TCP/IPv4), click on it and press
Properties
Figure 3.3 Network Connections
Setup the IP address (in this case, 192.168.1.1) as shown below and press OK
You can access the Coordinator’s web
server via any internet browser using IP
address of 192.168.1.200.
Once you log into the Coordinator’s web
server, you will be able to change its IP
configuration according to Section 4.2.
After you configure the
Coordinator’s IP configurations,
you should go back and set your
PC’s previous IP settings.

PART 4
OPERATIONS
This Receiver can be used and configured in several ways, depending on user’s
preference and network setup. It can be configured using a Web browser, like Internet
Explorer. It can also be configured using the iConnect Configuration Software.
If DHCP and DNS servers are configured to exchange information, the connection will be
very simple. All you need to do is to enable DHCP on the Receiver (see Section 3.3) and
use a straight through network cable to connect the Receiver to an Ethernet hub or switch
and power it up. Now, you can use the Receiver’s default Host (Domain) Name, which is
zxxxx (where xxxx are the last four characters of its MAC address) to access the
Receiver’s Web Server.
If DHCP is not the preferred method, you can configure your PC’s network connection with
an IP address of 192.168.1.x that is in the same range as the Receiver’s default IP
address (192.168.1.200) and connect to the Receiver using a cross-over network cable
between your PC’s network port and the Receiver. After you’re done with configuring the
Receiver, you can always set your PC back to its original settings. See Section 3.5.2 for
more details.
On your computer, from the MS-DOS Prompt window type "ping 192.168.1.200" and press
Enter. If DHCP and DNS servers are used type "ping zxxxx", where xxxx are the last four
digits of the Receiver’s MAC address, located on the back of the device. You should get a
reply as shown in Figure 4.1.

4.2 Setting a New IP Address over the Network
Besides using the iConnect software, you may use the Receiver’s default IP address to
access it and assign a new IP address to it.
The Receiver is shipped with a default IP address of 192.168.1.200 and Subnet Mask of
255.255.255.0. You can configure your PC’s Network connection with an IP address that
is in the same range as the Receiver’s IP address (192.168.1.x) and connect to the
Receiver using a crossover network cable between your PC and the Receiver.
With this completed, you can go to the DOS-Prompt and ping 192.168.1.200. If you
receive responses back (Figure 4.1), you can go to the Web browser and type in
http://192.168.1.200 and it will take you to the Wireless System’ Home Page.

4.3.1 Power Up Device
To verify that a Connector/Transmitter is working before deploying remotely, install the
battery and power it on right next to the Receiver. When the Connector/Transmitter is
powered on, the green LED (TX) will blink continuously. This indicates the
Connector/Transmitter is broadcasting its data to the Receiver on selected RF channel.
The LED will blink only when the Connector/Transmitter sends data to the Receiver. If
the Receiver is not powered on, or it’s out of reach, the Connector/Transmitter will not
receive the acknowledgment packet from the Receiver and therfore to save battery
power it will go to sleep.
The sleeping period can be defined by the users via the USB port (PC Configuration
software) on the Connector/Transmitter. The Connector/Transmitter sends new data for a
short period of time after every sleep period is over, until it can establish the connection
back with the Receiver. For a list of battery life versus the transmit time, please refer to
the UWTC Connector/Transmitter manual Section 6.11.
Once the Connector/Transmitter and the Receiver start communicating, make
sure to push DIP switch # 1 located on the back of the Receiver to ON position if
success calculation and lost detection features are enabled. This will lock the
wireless settings (eg. update, transmission power) on the Receiver in case of a
power outage.
When there are two Connector/Transmitters with the same Device ID/address,
both will be transmitting data every sampling period with their LEDs blinking.
The Receiver will receive data from both Connector/Transmitters and will display
their data alternately. To avoid this please turn the Connector/Transmitter one by
one and verify that the Receiver is displaying the correct data.
Make sure the Connector/Transmitter is configured to use the same Network ID
and RF channel as the Receiver. Also, make sure receiver address for the
Connector/Transmitter is set to 0.

4.3.2 Get Readings from the Connector/Transmitter
Once you see the Connector/Transmitter’s LED blinking periodically, it means it is
sending data which will appear on the "Readings" page. To view the data in a chart
format, you can use the "Chart" page.

4.3.3.2 Browser Proxy Selection
Accessing Receiver units within your internal network
• Usually when the computer and Receivers are on an internal network, you will not
use Proxy server access.
• You should un-check the "Use Browser Settings" option on the "Proxy" tab.
Accessing Receiver units using the internet
• Often the web browser will use Proxy server access to the internet. In such cases,
the default Java runtime settings on the "Proxy" tab should suffice. The default
setting is the "Use Browser Settings" option.
• If the default proxy setting doesn't work, then you may have a situation where the
proxy settings of the web browser are incorrect.
Diagnostics:
If the web page of the Wireless System appears, then the HTTP Proxy is working fine.
If the data isn't updated on the Wireless System upon selecting the "Readings" web
page, there may be a problem with access through a winsock proxy server. In such
cases your network administrator will need to provide the winsock proxy server and port
#s. (The TCP ports Receiver uses for Java applets are 1000 and 1001).
These values should be entered into the Socks line on the "Proxy" tab (of the Java
Plugin control panel) or into the "connections" tab on the View,Internet Options dialog
and make sure that the Proxy tab shows that the "Use Browser Settings" option is not
selected (i.e. when you specify proxy connections in the Java Plugin control panel).
Accessing Receiver units over Peer-to-Peer network
A simple peer-to-peer network is setup by disconnecting from the main network (as users
will often do when trying to do initial setup of the Receiver) and then connecting the
Receiver to another computer using an ethernet hub, an ethernet switch, or a Cross-over
cable connection.
Often when using a peer-to-peer network, the Java plugin and the web browser (such as
Internet Explorer) have internet connections configured to connect through proxy
servers. In such case, you will need to simply assign the final IP address on this peer to
peer network and then view the Wireless System’s charts after connecting the Receiver
into the regular network. Otherwise you can disable the Java plug-in's "Use Browser
Settings" temporarily and then reconfigure the Java plug-in settings for regular network
access after testing the Wireless System’s chart access on your peer-to-peer network.
The "Use Browser Settings" should not be selected. And the HTTP and Socks proxy
entries should be blank. Also, setup the internet browser so that proxy servers are disabled.

Sensor Name: Name of this Connector/Transmitter.
Update (Seconds): How often this sensor is sending its data to the Receiver. This
update corresponds to the sampling rate configured by using the Configuration Wizard.
For detailed steps on how to configure the sampling rate, please refer to Section 4.1 of
the UWTC Manual. Non zero update rate will enable success calculation and lost
detection features. Update rate should reflect the actual blinking interval in order to
enhance the accuracy of success calculation and lost detection.
Update on the webpage means how often the Receiver expects a reading
coming from a Connector/Transmitter. The Receiver uses this Update to detect
lost condition and calculate success rate. It is purely used by the Receiver only,
and the Connector/Transmitter does not recognize the Update on the webpage.
Therefore, changing Update will not change the actual sample rate stored on
the Connector/Transmitter.
For a more accurate success rate and lost packet information, it is necessary to
change the default "update second" to the actual sampling rate of the
Connector/Transmitter. If you desire to lock this information in your Receiver,
DIP switch #1 should be turned ON. Otherwise, in the case of a power outage
the default "update second" will go back to default.
Offset: If it is determined that the readings are slightly off, the user can manually assign
numerical values to adjust the readings for temperature (in ºC) , humidity (in percentage),
and dewpoint (in ºC). The offset value can either be a positive or a negative number with
one decimal point

28
4.3.8 Access Control (continued)
MAC Address: This is also called Hardware address or Ethernet address, which is
assigned to the Receiver at production. The MAC (Media Access Control) address is the
Receiver’s unique hardware number and is not changeable.
IP Address: The IP (Internet Protocol) address is a 32-bit number that identifies each
sender or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Ethernet or the
Internet. The Receiver’s default IP address is 192.168.1.200. The Receiver’s IP address
should be changed to fit user’s networking environment. Consult with your IT department
for obtaining an IP address.
The DHCP will be enabled in the Receiver if its IP address is set to 0.0.0.0.
The DHCP can also be enabled by setting the DIP switch #3 to ON position.
Gateway Address: A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another
network. A gateway is often associated with a router, which knows where to direct a
given packet of data that arrives at the gateway. If the Receiver is sending packets to
another network node that is not on the same network on which the Receiver is
connected, a gateway address needs to be given to the Receiver. The gateway address
should be the IP address of the router connected to the same LAN to which the Receiver
is connected. The Receiver default gateway address is 0.0.0.0. Consult with your IT
department for obtaining a gateway address.
Subnet Mask: It’s a 32-bit number that is used to determine which part of the IP
address is the network portion and which part is the host portion. The Receiver default
subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. Consult with your IT department for obtaining a subnet
mask.
Save: Saves any changes for above settings.
Reset: Pressing the Reset button will set all the fields back to their original values.
Network Reset: Reboots the embedded server. Note that all updated network
parameters take effect after reboot.
Changes made in the "Access Control" page can be saved permanently by
pressing the Save button and power recycling the Receiver (press Network
Reset button).
4.4 Telnet Setup
In the Configuration page, set the TCP Connections to 1 - 5 other than 0, and use a
telnet simulation program to connect to the Receiver (using Port 2000). The command
can be sent to query the Receiver and you will get a response back.
For a list of commands refer to ASCII/TELNET commands Table in Appendix F.
4.5 HTTPget Program
The Httpget software is used to send a single HTTP or TCP request to the Receiver. In
contrast, the telnet or Hyperterminal programs allow a continuous connection with
multiple requests to be sent to the Receiver.
Generally HTTPget is used for simply programming an IP address to the Receiver or for
quickly obtaining a reading from a Connector/Transmitter.
The Receiver must be configured from the configuration web page so that the "TCP
Connections" indicates any number between 1 and 5. Make sure that the Port Field
number indicates 2000.
29
4.5 HTTPget Program (continued)
Whenever Terminal Server service (using Port 2000 by default) is required, the # of
connections must be set to a value from 1 to 5. The Terminal Server mode is the
recommended mode for the most reliable connection when operating with NEWPORT
software or with other programs supporting TCP/IP communications. The Port 2000
access can be used with NEWPORT software and may be needed with some Receivers
when you need to view readings from the web page while simultaneously collecting data
through TCP/IP communications.
4.5.1 HTTPget using Port 2000
You can setup and read the information from the Receiver by using the HTTPget
program. The following program can be used to read data from the embedded server
firmware by using TCP port 2000. The command string is sent to this TCP port, then the
response can be read back from the same socket.
The HTTPget.exe file is used to setup and read information from the Receiver. This file
will be automatically installed when you install the MailNotifier software available on our
website and CD.
Notes on using HTTPget :
The Httpget.exe program is installed to the windows directory (usually c:\winnt or
c:\windows) when installing the Mail Notifier software.
1. Open up a command window (or have a DOS window)
a) Click on start menu
b) Click on "Run"
c) In the dialog box that appears, type "cmd" or "command" and click on "OK" button.
d) A command window should now appear.
2. If you now type "httpget" and press the "enter", the program options should be displayed.
3. Next run HTTPget with the options displayed below
httpget -r -S ERDGALL 192.168.1.135:2000 -C1 -q
where:
-r –S are parameters needed for the the command string
ERDGALL is the Telnet command (refer to Appendix F)
192.168.1.135 is an IP address
2000 is a socket port number
-C1 closes the TCP connection after 1 second
-q displays no error messages once the connection is closed
Figure 4.19 HTTPget Example of Polling Connector/Transmitter #6,7,8,9,10
30
4.5.2 HTTPget and ARP to Setup Device IP Address
Use the iConnect software, which may be downloaded from our website, to do
these IP changes whenever possible.
Use ARP first to assign the mac address to a static IP address in computer arp table by
this command:
arp –s 192.168.1.200 00-03-34-00-06-b6
Then use the following command to assign new IP to the device:
Httpget –r –S "00000000" 192.168.1.200:1
where:
"0000000" is admin. password. If the password is wrong, the unit will ignore the new IP.
If the new IP is taken, you will get the message "New IP is Assigned" after the HTTPget
command. The device will reset automatically.
"192.168.1.200" is an example of an IP address. It is replaced with IP address suitable
for your network.
"00-03-34-00-06-b6" is replaced with your Receiver’s MAC address.
4.6 ARP Protocol
ARP is the Internet layer protocol responsible for matching or obtaining the MAC
(hardware) address that corresponds to a particular IP address. The ARP command
allows the user to view the current contents of the ARP cache of the local computer
(residing on the same network). Microsoft includes the ARP.EXE utility for viewing and
modifying the ARP cache with its Windows products. The following ARP commands can
be used to view cache entries:
• arp –a fi Use this command to view all ARP cache entries.
• arp –a plus IP address fi Use this command to view ARP cache entries associated
with one particular interface on a network with multiple adapters.
• arp –g fi Same as arp –a.
• arp –N fi Use this command to display ARP entries for specific network interface.
• arp – s plus IP address plus Physical address fi Use this command to manually
add a permanent static entry to the ARP cache.
• arp –d plus IP address fi Use this command to manually delete a static entry.
31
4.6 ARP Protocol (continued)

4.8 Mail Notifier Software
For complete information of how to use the Mail Notifier software, click on the Help menu
of the main window.
The Mail Notifier software generates email notifications for alarm conditions. Users can
be notified automatically of alarm conditions monitored via internet connections
throughout the world. By use of the email forwarding of alarm conditions, alarm
conditions can be monitored on a network isolated from the internet and forwarded to
connections on the Internet.
The Mail Notifier utility operates under Windows 98, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP in conjunction
with existing email that supports the MAPI messaging interface. If MS OutlookTM has
been loaded, the MAPI support should be available.
4.8.1 Installation
The Mail Notifier must be loaded on a computer running MicrosoftTM Windows (versions
specified earlier) using an email program that provides MAPI access. Network access
must be available between this computer and the Receiver. Network access must also
be available from this computer to the appropriate email server and from the email server
to the recipient’s email server.

This will be the list of email addresses to which alarm notifications will be sent.
Email Setup
The Mail Notifier is compatible with original MS OutlookTM and OutlookTM 2002 to 2005.
The Mail Notifier will attempt to automatically identify whether the Outlook is a newer
version. A red bar appears under the Mail Notifier splash window to confirm that the
detection of the 2002 or newer version is acceptable. With the newer versions, no
additional steps should be taken to enable the connection between the Mail Notifier and
the Email server.
MS Outlook tends to require that the users respond to a "login box" in order for
email access to be activated for Mail Notifier. Some other email clients may
allow for Mail Notifier to gain access without user login, as may be desired for a
system recovering from a power outage. See the Help files for more
information.

4.8.3 Device Setting and Configuration
Make sure that the Receiver is configured (using web access, see Figure 4.17) to the
settings below.
TCP Connection = any value from 1 to 5
Port number = 2000 (other values may be acceptable as long as Mail Notifier is setup
with the same Port number).
Then on the Mail Notifier Alarm Editor:
1) Set the "IP address" (for example 192.168.1.200).
2) Specify "Socket Number" 2000.
3) Set the "Address/RS485 Unit" to the Device ID number for a Connector/Transmitter.
4) Set the "Reading Cmd" using general commands in the Table below.
5) Define the Alarm Configuration (High/Low, High value, or Low value).
Specify Email Interval. This determines how many seconds each subsequential
alarm notification will be sent.
Determine Monitor interval. This establishes the interval or time resolution in
seconds for which readings will be obtained from the device.

PART 5
ENVIRONMENT / OPERATING CONDITIONS
The Connector/Transmitter/Receiver are designed to be fixed mounted and operated in
a clean and dry environment. Care should be taken to prevent the components of your
wireless system from being exposed to moisture, toxic chemicals, extreme cold or hot
temperature that are outside the specification listed in this manual.
The following is a list of basic good practice you should apply when operating this
Wireless System.
1. Do not operate the wireless device in flammable or explosive environments.
2. Do not use the wireless device in medical, nuclear or other critical application
where failure can cause damage or harm.
3. Always operate the wireless device within the recommended environmental limits
specified in the manual.
4. Do not operate the wireless device with a battery or AC adapter other than what’s
supplied or specified in this manual or on the battery compartment label.
5. Keep each wireless device at least 8 inches (20 cm) from other radio
transmitters, antennas, and people.
6. The FCC approval for this device specifies the specific antenna supplied with this
device.
5.1 General Deployment Guidelines
1. Position Receiver in a central location. When multiple Connector/Transmitters
are in operation, position your Receiver in a central space if possible in equal
distance to each Connector/Transmitter.
2. Test your system before permanent mounting. Try to move the devices to
different location around and mounting angles to determine what installation
achieves the best signal strength before permanently mounting the
Connector/Transmitter.
3. Move your system components higher off the floor and away from exterior walls.
The closer the Connector/Transmitter/Receiver are, the greater the interference
and lose of signal strength will be.
4. Maintain a line-of-sight between antennas and keep Fresnel zone free of
obstruction. See Figure 5.2.
5. Maintain a constant ambient temperature environment. Exposing your system
components to extreme cold or hot temperatures, or sudden changes in ambient
conditions will have an effect on the performance of your system.
6. As a general rule in buildings, head height or above is preferred. On the other
hand, Connector/Transmitter which stays close to the floor may have their range
reduced by 50% to 90%.
39
5.1 General Deployment Guidelines (continued)
7. Where possible, try to ensure an uninterrupted line-of-sight between nodes.
Avoid obscuring objects (e.g. metal pillars, posts, sign) near the antenna. A close
object obscures a wider range of solid angle.
8. It is important to understand that the environment may change over time due to
new equipment or machinery being installed, building construction, etc. If new
obstacles exist between the Connector/Transmitter and Receiver, antenna angle
may need to be re-adjusted and/or the unit has to be relocated.
9. An IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network will not work under water. Wet condition (e.g.
in heavy rainfall) may exhibit some degradation. In most cases, water droplets on
or close to the antenna are more serious than the rain itself. Humidity can affect
radio performance as well.
10. Reduced performance scenario:
a. A large building may have few obstructions between nodes but large amount
of metallic paneling that cause reflections.
b. A small domestic installation may have numerous brick walls between nodes
in individual rooms.
c. An office building may have metalized dry-wall partitions together with
mezzanine ceilings.

Figure 5.1 Operation in Buildings
Data is sent through radio signal at 2.4 GHz. Radio signals are electromagnetic
waves, hence the signal becomes weaker the further it travels.
While radio waves can penetrate some solid materials like a wall, they can
diminish more than when a direct line-of-sight between the transmitting and
receiving antenna exist.
Therefore, it is generally a good idea to place Receiver at the center while
Connector/Transmitters are located about the same distance away from it. If
possible, keeping clearance around the line of site will improve performance as
well.
40
5.2 With Line-of-Sight
When installing the Receiver it is important to position your device in such a way to
optimize the antenna location within what’s known as the "Fresnel Zone".
The Fresnel Zone can be thought of as a football-shaped invisible tunnel between two
locations that provides a path for RF signals between the Connector/Transmitter and the
Receiver.

TRANSMITTER
ANTENNA
RECEIVER
ANTENNA
or
FRESNEL ZONE
Figure 5.2 Fresnel Zone
In order to achieve maximum range, the football-shaped path in which radio waves travel
must be free of obstructions.
Obstacles in the path (especially metal) will decrease the communication range between
the Connector/Transmitter and Receiver.
Also, if the antennas are mounted just barely off the ground or below the ceiling, over
half of the Fresnel zone ends up being obstructed resulting in significant reduction in
range.
Below is the calculated radius of the football-shaped tunnel for different distance range:
Distance (feet)
Radius (feet)
100
3.2
200
4.5
300
5.5
It is recommended that within the tunnel of the above radius, at least 60% of space is
free of obstruction.
Since signal reaches destination directly in a line-of-sight situation, it is important to
adjust antenna properly to achieve maximum performance.
Antenna for the Receiver and Connector/Transmitter should be perpendicular to the
plane where Receiver and Connector/Transmitter is located.
41
5.3 Without Line-of-Sight
When line-of-sight is not possible, signal penetrates and is reflected by different objects
to reach the destination. Therefore, it is important to learn about how these materials
would affect signal propagation.
Depending on the thickness, moisture content and angle of incidence, a wall may allow
between 1% and 25% of the radio power to pass through.
Metal panel or metalized glass window will not allow much radio power to pass through.
Signal will be reflected if the panel is a mirror.
Some radio power may propagate through small holes in the panel or around metal
edges through the process of diffraction.

Figure 5.3 Materials in Buildings
In a non-line-of-sight situation at 2.45 GHz, it is possible to move the receive antenna
only 1 to 1 1/2" (3 to 4 cm) and see signal strength varies from 6 dB to -20 dB due to
multiple signal reflection path. Therefore, there should be about 20 dB path loss margin
to take signal fading into account.
5.4 Casing and Closure Around the Antenna
1. Metallic structure should be kept at least 0.8" (2 cm), although 2.4" (6 cm) is
recommended away from the antenna.
2. Any casing that encloses the antenna should be plastic. In addition, it is also wise
to avoid plastic case with dark fillers or colorants.

GLOSSARY
User of this manual should be familiar with following definitions:
ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) is a protocol for mapping an Internet Protocol address (IP
address) to a physical machine address that is recognized in the local network. For example,
the IP address in use today is an address that is 32-bits long. In an Ethernet local area network,
however, addresses for attached devices are 48-bits long. (The physical machine address is
also known as a Media Access Control or MAC address.) A table, usually called the ARP cache,
is used to maintain a correlation between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address.
ARP provides the protocol rules for making this correlation and providing address conversion in
both directions.
Ethernet is a network protocol defined by the IEEE 802.3 standard. Ethernet-based
networks use MAC Address rather then IP Address to exchange data between computers.
By using ARP and adding TCP/IP support, Ethernet devices may be connected as part of the
Internet. An Ethernet LAN typically uses coaxial cable or special grades of twisted pair wires.
The most commonly installed Ethernet systems are called 10BASE-T and provide transmission
speeds up to 10 Mbps. Devices are connected to the cable and compete for access using a
Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) protocol.
IP (Internet Protocol) is the method or protocol by which data is sent from one computer to
another on the Internet.
IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a 32-bit number that identifies each sender or
receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Internet.
IP Netmask is a 32-bit pattern of bits used to determine which part of the IP address is the
network portion and which part is the host portion.
MAC (Media Access Control) Address is your computer's unique hardware number. When
you're connected to the Internet from your computer, a correspondence table relates your IP
address to your computer's physical (MAC) address on the LAN.
Ping is a utility that tests the network connectivity. It is used to determine if the host is capable
of exchanging information with another host.
Port number/Socket number is a way to identify a specific process to which an Internet or
other network message is to be forwarded when it arrives at a server. It is a predefined address
that serves as a route from the application to the Transport layer or from the Transport layer to
the application of the TCP/IP system.
Sockets are a method for communication between a client program and a server program in a
network and defined as "the endpoint in a connection." Information transferred across the
Internet primarily occurs between sockets.
SMTP Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is an Internet standard for electronic mail (email) transfer
across the Internet. SMTP clients usually use SMTP to send email messages by specifying the
SMTP server. The email server uses SMTP to both send and receive email messages.
SNMP Simple Network Management Protocol is a network monitoring protocol to monitor
devices connected to an Ethernet Network.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication
language or protocol of the Internet. When you are set up with direct access to the Internet, your
computer is provided with a copy of the TCP/IP program just as every other computer that you
may send messages to or get information from also has a copy of TCP/IP. TCP/IP often is used
as a general term to indicate generic access to the Internet.
UDP/IP (User Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the TCP/IP standard protocol that
allows an application program on one machine to send a datagram to an application program on
another. The UDP can be either in Broadcast or Directed form. The Broadcast UDP transmits
data to every node on the same network. The Directed UDP transmits data to one node only.
47
Appendix B
IP Address
An IP address is a unique 32-bit address assigned to a computer and includes:
• A network ID number identifying a network.
• A host ID number identifying a computer on the network.
All IP addresses have been divided into three smaller groups (classes) A, B and C
• Class A addresses have 8-bits of network ID and 24-bits of host ID. They can support
a large number of hosts, approximately 2 = 16,777,216 computers per network.
The IP addresses range in binary from 00000001.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
to 01111111.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
The IP addresses range in decimal from 1.x.x.x to 127.x.x.x
Class A network ID’s support a very large number of hosts.
• Class B addresses have 16-bits of network ID and 16-bits of host ID. They can
support approximately 216 = 65,536 computers per network.
The IP addresses range in binary from 10000000 00000000.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
to 10111111 11111111.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
The IP addresses range in decimal from 128.0.x.x to 191.255.xxx.xxx
Class B network ID’s support a medium number of hosts.
• Class C addresses have 24-bits of network ID and 8-bits of host ID. They can support
approximately 28 = 256 computers per network.
The IP addresses range in binary from 11000000.00000000.00000000.xxxxxxxx
to 11011111.11111111.11111111.xxxxxxxx
The IP addresses range in decimal from 192.0.0.xxx to 223.255.255.xxx
Class C network ID’s support a small number of hosts.
The rest of the addresses are divided into two classes, D and E.
Class D networks are not assigned to the host. They are used for multicasting.
The address range from 224.x.x.x to 239.x.x.x
Class E networks are experimental or reserved addresses.
The address range from 240.x.x.x to 247.x.x.x
48
Appendix C
IP Netmask
IP Netmask or Subnet Mask is a 32-bit pattern of ones and zeros used to determine
network portion of an IP address from the host portion of the IP address. Subnet mask is
a network ID that is created by borrowing bits from host portion of IP address and using
them as part of a network ID. The table below shows a default subnet mask for address
Classes A, B, and C. Each bit that is set to "1" in the subnet mask corresponds to the bit
in the IP address that is to be used as the network ID. Each bit that is set to "0" in the
subnet mask corresponds to a bit in the IP address that is to be used as the host ID.

If your network requires more network ID’s, you can extend the default subnet mask to
include additional bits from the host ID. This allows for additional network ID’s within the
network. The table below shows some examples of subnet masks and bits moved from
the hosts ID to create a new subnet.

Command:
EQNG00A
Response:
7
EngrLAB 01000000 2.0
7 is the Device ID (DID) of the Connector/Transmitter.
EngrLAB is the name for the Connector/Transmitter.
“01000010” is the bitmap representation of the internal state. The meaning for each bit
is described below (bit 7 starts from the left).
Bit 7 shows if the sensor is plugged into the Connector/Transmitter. ‘1’ means there is
no sensing device detected.
Bit 6 shows if the communication to the Connector/Transmitter is lost. ‘1’ means there
has not been any data received from that particular Connector/Transmitter for 1 minute
or 4 times the update rate, whichever is a longer time interval.
Based on the above information, Connector/Transmitter # 7 has not been communicating
with the Receiver.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Java applet is not loaded?
A: Check Java Setting (icon in Control Panel). Make sure cache is disabled and your
web browser is enabled for Java.
Q: I do not see any readings even if the applet is loaded, what could be wrong?
A:
1) Check if the battery is still good. You should be able to see the LED when you power
the Connector/Transmitter on.
2) Make sure that there is no Connector/Transmitter with the same Device ID.
Q: What are the error messages that appear on the “Reading”, “Chart”, and “Diagnostic”
pages?
Open
A: It means that the Connector/Transmitter cannot detect any process sensors.
Check the connections for the process sensor.
Lost
A: It means that the Connector/Transmitter found the Receiver when it was powered on,
but it cannot communicate with it currently.
Make sure the Receiver is powered on, DIP switch #1 (of the 8-DIP switch) on the
Receiver is ON, and there is no obstructive objects blocking the communications path
(see Section 5 for more details). If the obstructive object is only temporary, you will get
the sensor readings once the path is open.
Q: Nothing happens when I click on the Data Logging button, what could be wrong?
A: The Java policy file is not setup properly. Make sure you get a Java policy file and
copy it to a folder in the host computer. Then input the java runtime argument in Java
Setup (Control Panel) with the appropriate path to the policy file. Close all web browser
and re-open the applet again. See Java Setup Section.
Q: The Chart trend line for all the variables are broken, what could be wrong?
A: It indicates that a TCP connection to the Receiver was timed-out and no data was
obtained. Make sure the Receiver is still on in the network and powered up. If there are
too many broken lines, it may indicate that the network load is too heavy.
Q: The trend line for one of my sensors inside one Connector/Transmitter is broken,
what could be wrong?
A: It indicates that TCP connection to the Receiver is good but the Receiver did not
have any readings from the corresponding Connector/Transmitter. Make sure
Connector/Transmitter is still blinking according to the update rate. It could be caused by
a reset/power cycling of the Receiver as well.
55
Appendix G Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
(continued)
Q: Nothing happens when I click on the Save Current Graph button, what could be
wrong?
A: The Java policy file is not setup properly. Make sure you get a Java policy file and
copy it to a folder in the host computer. Then input the java runtime argument in Java
Setup (Control Panel) with the appropriate path to the policy file. Close all web browser
and re-open the applet again. See Java Setup Section.
Q: Nothing is shown inside the Diagnostic page/applet, what could be wrong?
A: The first thing you want to try is to click your mouse right inside the box. Then
minimize and restore the web browser. Try to move the scrollbar as well. If nothing works
after about a minute, check the TCP connection to the Receiver.

Warnings and Regulatory Information
In order to comply with FCC radio frequencies (RF) exposure limits, dipole antennas
should be located at a minimum 7.9" (200mm) or more from the body of all persons.
This device complies with part 15 rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and
2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a
residential environment. This equipment generates, uses, and radiates radio frequency
energy, and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur. If this equipment
does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to correct the interference by one of the
following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from which the receiver is
connected.
• Consult dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician.
The following alert sign indicates that there are restrictions on usage of the
equipment in regards to power limitations on Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power
(EIRP) levels in the European Community.
The following are user restrictions:
• Wideband Data Transmission Systems on the band 2400 to 2483.5 MHz in Europe is
limited to a Maximum of 10 mW (10 dBm) for Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS).
See Annex 3 of ERC/REC 70-03, decision ERC/DEC/ (01)07.
• Combinations of power levels and antennas resulting in a radiated power level above
10 mW - EIRP for Direct Sequence Spectrum (DSSS) devices are considered as not
compliant, and are not allowed for use within the European Community and other
countries that have adopted the European R&TTE directive 1995/5/EC or the CEPT
recommendation ERC/REC 70-03 or both.
• The users in Europe are instructed to change the default 20 dBm level to 10 dBm via the
Web Interface of the Meter/Receiver.
