• Install Ferrite Bead(s) on signal wires close to the instrument if EMC problems persist.
Failure to follow all instructions and warnings may result in injury!
1.2 Before You Begin
Inspecting Your Shipment: Remove the packing slip and verify that you have received
everything listed. Inspect the container and equipment for signs of damage as soon as
you receive the shipment. Note any evidence of rough handling in transit. Immediately
report any damage to the shipping agent. The carrier will not honor damage claims
unless all shipping material is saved for inspection. After examining and removing the
contents, save the packing material and carton in the event reshipment is necessary.
Customer Service: If you need assistance, please contact the Customer Service
Department nearest you.
Manuals, Software: The latest Operation Manual as well as free configuration software
(iConnect), data-logging software (iLog) and Mail Notifier are available at the website
listed on the cover page of this manual or on the CD-ROM enclosed with your shipment.
1.3 Description
The rugged, high-performance, long range zSeries wireless sensor/transmitter
system provides Web-based monitoring of Temperature, Humidity, and Barometric
Pressure measurements.
The compact wireless "End Devices" mount discretely on the wall in clean rooms,
laboratories, museums, computer server rooms, warehouses, and any remote facility.
Compact End Devices (zED) are powered by two AA 1.5V alkaline batteries.
The long range End Devices run on either AC power, low voltage power, or batteries. The
AC version (zED-P, zED-LCD) is powered by a 5 Vdc universal AC power adapter that
operates on any voltage worldwide (110 to 240 Vac). Should AC power fail, the unit can
operate on a 3.6V ultra-long-life lithium back-up battery (included).
A low power option (zED-DC) operates at 10 to 30 Vdc, or 24 Vac.
A completely wireless End Devices are powered by two AA (zED-LCD-AA) or two C-cell
(zED-CCELL) alkaline batteries. These End Devices can operate for weeks, months, or
years before changing the batteries. Battery life depends on the type of sensor and other
user settings such as the frequency of transmission.
2
1.3 Description (continued)
The End Devices transmit up to 300 feet/91m (zED) or 3280 feet/1000m (zED-P/-LCD/
-AA/-CCELL/-DC-H2), without obstructions or interference, to a "Coordinator" connected
directly to an Ethernet network and the Internet. The wireless system complies with IEEE
802.15.4 operating at 2.4 GHz and the user can switch to different communication
channels to avoid interference with other wireless technologies (e.g. Wi-Fi).
To achieve robust and reliable wireless communication, End Devices retransmit data
adaptively to the environment so that power consumption is optimized in harsh conditions.
The Coordinator 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 zSeries system allows you to monitor and record Temperature, Relative Humidity,
and Barometric Pressure over an Ethernet network or the Internet without any special
software-just your Web Browser.
We offer a selection of End Devices for a variety of applications. End Devices can take
thermocouple types J, K, T, E, R, S, B, C, N and L (DIN J) measuring temperatures up to
2320ºC from two different locations. Also, End Devices are available with built-in
sensors, with external sensor probes, and with both built-in and external sensors. The
external sensors are designed for harsh environments such as outdoor weather, in HVAC
ducts, freezers and refrigerators.
For example, you can select one End Device that has one internal and one external sensor
to monitor temperature and humidity both inside and outside a climate-controlled facility.
Each zSeries Coordinator can directly support up to thirty-two (32) End Devices and a
maximum of 8 Coordinators can be setup in the vicinity. The Coordinators include AC
adapters to operate on any voltage worldwide from 100 to 240 Vac and 50 to 60Hz. The
Coordinator connects directly to an Ethernet Network or the Internet. Unlike an RS232 or
USB device, it does not require a host computer.
The zSeries Coordinator 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 Coordinator 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.
The zSeries wireless sensor system is easy to install, simple to operate, and features
award-winning iServer technology with an Embedded Web Server that requires no
special software.
The zSeries system serves Active Web Pages to display real time readings and charts of
temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. 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 zSeries system there is no need to invest time and
3
money learning a proprietary software program to log or chart the data.
1.3 Description (continued)
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 zSeries wireless sensor system
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 zSeries wireless system to your
network:
The zSeries wireless system consists of a single Coordinator and one or more End
Devices. End devices will send data periodically to the Coordinator where it serves as a
gateway between the users and the End Devices. The users can access the data
through the Coordinator’s web server and provided data acquisition software.
A standard web browser can be used to monitor and chart temperature, humidity, and
barometric pressure. The browser can also be used to configure the device’s IP address,
passwords for access and overall configuration parameters.

Definitions:
DID (Device ID): The first 5 DIP switches used to assign a device number to an End
Device.
NID (Network ID): The last 3 DIP switches used to assign a unique network number to a
network of a Coordinator and End Device(s).
PID (Personal Network ID): The sum of the Network ID (NID) and 13106 (0x3332). The
PID as defined by IEEE for 802.15.4 standard is an identifying factor for separating
802.15.4 wireless networks to avoid overlapping and allow interoperability.
Once the End Devices and the Coordinator start communicating, make sure to push
DIP switch #1, located on the back of the Coordinator to the ON position. This will
lock the Coordinator on the same channel it initially established the connection.
It’s a good practice to record NID and DID numbers on designated labels placed
on the Coordinator and End Devices, see Figure 2.1 and 2.5.

2.8 Network Communication Interfaces
2.8.1 10BASE-T RJ-45 Pinout
The 10BASE-T Ethernet network (RJ-45) system is used in the Coordinator for network
connectivity. The 10 Mbps twisted-pair Ethernet system operates over two pairs of wires.
One pair is used for receiving data signals and the other pair is used for transmitting data
signals. This means that four pins of the eight-pin connector are used.

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 Coordinator 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 Coordinator, as soon as the Coordinator is connected to the
network, there is an exchange of information between DHCP server and the Coordinator.
During this process the IP address, the Gateway address, and the Subnet Mask will be
assigned to the Coordinator by the DHCP server. Note that the DHCP server must be
configured correctly to do such assignment.
The Coordinator 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

2
1
DIP switch # 3 shown in "ON" position
Figure 3.1 4 Position DIP Switch on the Bottom Side of Coordinator
Setting the Coordinator’s IP address to 0.0.0.0 will also enable DHCP.
26
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 zSeries Home Page.
The default DNS name for the Coordinator is "z" followed by the last four digits of the
MAC address of that particular Coordinator.
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 Coordinator.
2. The Coordinators 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 the 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 Coordinator. 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 Coordinator 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 Coordinator 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
Coordinator’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 Coordinator’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 Coordinator 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 Coordinator to change the IP address or
any other settings within the Coordinator.
27
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 3.2 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.
Figure 3.3 Network Connections
28
PART 4
OPERATIONS
This Coordinator 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 Coordinator (see Section 3.3)
and use a straight through network cable to connect the Coordinator to an Ethernet hub
or switch and power it up. Now, you can use the Coordinator’s default Host (Domain)
Name, which is zxxxx (where xxxx are the last four characters of its MAC address) to
access the Coordinator’s Web Server.
If DHCP is not the preferred method, you can configure your PC’s network connection
(see Section 3.5.2 for more details) with an IP address of 192.168.1.x that is in the same
range as the Coordinator’s default IP address (192.168.1.200) and connect to the
Coordinator using a cross-over network cable between your PC’s network port and the
Coordinator.
After you’re done with configuring the Coordinator, you can set your PC’s network
connection back to its original settings.
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 Coordinator’s MAC address, located on the back of the device. You
should get a reply as shown in Figure 4.1.
4.0 Testing the Connection
Figure 4.1 Pinging the Coordinator from MS-DOS Prompt
This proves that the connection is proper and you can get into configuration or run mode
using the Telnet or Web browser.
29
4.1 iConnect Software
The Coordinator may also be assigned an IP Address by using the iConnect software.
a) Download the iConnect software from the website listed in this manual.
b) Install iConnect software on a networked PC. This software is compatible with
Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, and XP.
c) Use iConnect to assign an IP address to the Coordinator and access its web pages
for configuration. You can also use any standard web browser to access the zSeries
system’s web pages. Consult with your IT department for obtaining an IP address.

4.2 Setting a New IP Address over the Network
Besides using the iConnect software, you may use the Coordinator’s default IP address to
access it and assign a new IP address to it.
The Coordinator 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 (See Section 3.5.2 for more details) with
an IP address that is in the same range as the Coordinator’s IP address (192.168.1.x) and
connect to the Coordinator using a crossover network cable between your PC and the
Coordinator.
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 zSeries Home Page.
Select Access Control , button, you’ll be asked for the password. You should be on the
Access Control page were you can simply type in the desired Static IP address, and click Save.

4.3 Coordinator’s Configurations and Operations
The Blue LED should blink for about 8 seconds and then stay on. It indicates that the
Coordinator is searching for the least noisy channel and starts listening there. That’s
when the blue LED changes from blinking to solid. Using a web browser, you should be
able to view the homepage.

4.3.1 Power Up Device
To verify that an End Device is working before deploying remotely, install batteries and
power it on right next to the Coordinator. When the End Device is powered on, it will
search for the Coordinator in all 16 channels reserved for IEEE 802.15.4 (channel 11
through 26) by sending request packets. While it’s searching, the blue LED on the End
Device blinks every second. Once the Coordinator responds to the End Device request,
the LED will blink only when the End Device sends data to the Coordinator (default is
every 10 seconds). If the Coordinator is not powered on or it’s out of reach, the End
Device will keep searching until the batteries discharge (e.g. roughly 36 hours for zED).
Once the Coordinator responds back to the End Device it will include its network number
in the response packet called Beacon. At this time the End Device would know what the
correct Coordinator is (there could be more than one Coordinator responding to the End
Device’s request packet). The channel on which the Coordinator responds back is
automatically picked to be the clearest among all 16 channels and therefore the End
Device starts sending data to the Coordinator on that particular channel.
Once the End Devices and the Coordinator start communicating, make sure to
push DIP switch #1 located on the back of the Coordinator to ON position. This
will lock the Coordinator on the same channel it initially established the
connection.
After the End Device transmits data to the Coordinator, it expects an acknowledgment
packet back from the Coordinator. If the End Device does not receive an
acknowledgment packet back within 50ms, it will go to sleep mode for 2 seconds and
then will transmit the data. This cycle will be repeated for 10 times and if it still does not
receive the acknowledgment packet back, the End Device takes a longer sleep time of 3
minutes. After 3 minutes, the End Device retransmits the data every 2 seconds for 4
times and each time it waits for 50ms for an acknowledgment. If it still does not receive a
response back from the Coordinator it will take another 3 minutes of sleep. This last
sequence will continue until the batteries are drained. Through the whole retransmission
cycle explained above the blue LED on the End Device will blink anytime retransmission
takes place.
The data being retransmitted will automatically gets updated as new readings
take place.
If the communication channel is manually selected in the Coordinator, the End
Devices must be power-cycled in order to establish connection over the new
channel. If it’s not possible to power-cycle the End Devices locally, a remote
option is available through the Coordinator’s Web server or Telnet console.
When there are two End Devices with the same Device ID, both will be
transmitting data every second with their LEDs blinking once a second. The
Coordinator will receive data from both End Devices and will display their data
alternately. On the "Readings", "Chart", and "Diagnostic" pages of the
Coordinator’s Web server, the phrase "ID" error code will be placed indicating
the conflict. Once the problem is resolved, click on the "Reset Sensor" button
located on the Sensors Parameters page to remove the "ID" error code.
In case of power failure/outage during normal operation, the zED-P/-LCD will
automatically switch its power supply from AC adapter to back-up battery.
However, power switching may fail if the End Device is on and consumes lots of
energy. Therefore, "LOST" will be detected, the LED stops blinking periodically
and the unit must be power cycled manually.

4.3.2 Get Readings from the End Device
Once you see the End Device’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

4.3.3.2 Browser Proxy Selection
Accessing Coordinators within your internal network
• Usually when the computer and Coordinators 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 Coordinators 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 zSeries system appears, then the HTTP Proxy is working fine.
If the data isn't updated on the zSeries 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 the Coordinator 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 Coordinators 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 zSeries system) and then connecting
the Coordinator 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
Coordinator 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.

Update rate is closely
related to the lifetime of
the battery.
Since the End Device is in low
power consumption (sleep mode)
when idle, a longer update rate will
cause less energy usage and
prolong the life of the battery.
On the other hand, a faster update
rate shortens the battery life and
results in a busy network, which will
increase the chance of signal
interference.
As a general rule of thumb,
minimum update rate should be
proportional to the number of
sensors in the network.

the Coordinator’s unique hardware number and is not changeable.
47
4.3.8 Access Control (continued)
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 Coordinator’s default IP address is 192.168.1.200. The Coordinator’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 Coordinator 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 Coordinator is sending packets to
another network node that is not on the same network on which the Coordinator is
connected, a gateway address needs to be given to the Coordinator. The gateway
address should be the IP address of the router connected to the same LAN to which the
Coordinator is connected. The Coordinator 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 Coordinator 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 Coordinator (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 Coordinator (using Port 2000). The
command can be sent to query the Coordinator 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 a Coordinator.
In contrast, the telnet or Hyperterminal programs allow a continuous connection with
multiple requests to be sent to the Coordinator.
Generally HTTPget is used for simply programming an IP address to the Coordinator or
for quickly obtaining a reading from a device.
The Coordinator 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.
48
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 zSeries
wireless system products 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 zSeries wireless system 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 zSeries system.
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 192.168.1.200:2000 -C1 -q
where:
-r –S are parameters needed for the the command string
ERDGALL is the Telnet command (refer to Appendix F)
192.168.1.200 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

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 Coordinator 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.
50
4.6 ARP Protocol (continued)
The following window shows examples of arp commands and responses.
• Your computer has an IP address of 192.168.1.118
• The destination computer has an IP address of 192.168.1.96

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 Outlook has been
loaded, the MAPI support should be available.
The Mail Notifier is not compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.
4.8.1 Installation
The Mail Notifier must be loaded on a computer running Microsoft Windows (versions
specified earlier) using an email program that provides MAPI access. Network access
must be available between this computer and the zSeries wireless system. 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.
55
4.8.3 Device Setting and Configuration
Make sure that the Coordinator 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 an End Device.
4) Set the "Reading Cmd" using general commands in the following 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
End Device/Coordinator 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 any other critical
application where failure can cause damage or harm.
3. Always operate the wireless device within the recommended environmental limits
specified in this manual.
4. Do not operate your 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 Coordinator in a central location. When multiple End Devices are in
operation, position your Coordinator in a central space if possible in equal
distance to each End Device.
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 End Device.
3. Move your system components higher off the floor and away from exterior walls.
The closer the End Device/Coordinator 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, End Device stays close to the floor may have their range reduced by 50%
to 90%.
58
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 your End Device and Coordinator, 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 Coordinator at the center while
End Devices are located about the same distance away from it. If possible,
keeping clearance around the line of site will improve performance as well.
59
5.2 With Line-of-Sight
When installing your Coordinator 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 your End Device and your Coordinator.
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 your End Device and Coordinator. 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 Coordinator
and End Device should be perpendicular to the plane where Coordinator and End
Device is located.
60
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.
61
5.5 Fine Adjustment in Performance
1. To avoid interference from WiFi / IEEE 802.11, one could consult the figure below to
choose the best channel through the Configuration webpage. In all, channels 15, 20,
25 and 26 are not overlapping with any WiFi / IEEE 802.11 bands in the United States
while channels 15, 16, 21 and 22 can be used in Europe.

Figure 5.4 Channels
It is possible that IEEE 802.15.4 devices experience interference from Wi-Fi / IEEE
802.11 and Bluetooth devices and certain microwave ovens. Therefore, it is worth
locating nodes as far as possible to minimize effect. Note that international radio
regulations which govern radio equipment ensure that cell phones use their allocated
band only. It is highly unlikely that cell phones will interfere with IEEE 802.15.4
equipment.
In some cases, a short RF cable may be used to connect an antenna to your device.
Please note that RF extension cables will always add some loss to the transmitting
signal strength. The longer the cable the more signal will be lost over that cable.
Therefore, the length of the cable should be kept as short as possible. Also, note that
use of any other antenna other then what’s shipped with your device will void FCC
and regulatory compliance.
To achieve satisfactory IEEE 802.15.4 performance in the presence of WLAN
interference, a channel center-frequency offset of 7 MHz is recommended.
For co-channel operation, a physical separation from the WLAN Access Point (AP) of
26.2’ (8 m) is recommended to achieve a Packet Error Rate (PER) of 1%. For a
particularly saturated WLAN link, 29.5’ to 32.8’ (9 to 10 m) may be necessary.
To achieve satisfactory IEEE 802.15.4 performance in the presence of Bluetooth
interference, a separation distance of 6.5 ‘ (2 m) is recommended.

APPENDIX A
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.
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.

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
70
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.

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) Make sure the Coordinator and the End Device have the same Network ID (NID).
2) Check if the battery is still good. You should be able to see the blue LED when you
power the End Device on.
3) If the End Device keeps blinking every second after it is powered on, that means it
cannot find the Coordinator. Try to adjust the antenna and relocate the End Device
according to Section 5.1.
Q: What are the error messages that appear on the "Reading", "Chart", and "Diagnostic"
pages?
Open
A: It means that the End Device cannot detect any of its sensors.
Check the connections for the internal sensor and the external probe if any.
ID
A: It means that there are more than one End Device sharing the same Device ID (DIP
switches #1-5).
Remember, each sensor should have a unique Device ID in the same wireless network.
Turning the device into Identify Mode may help searching for the physical location of
such End Devices. Once the problem is resolved, click on the "Reset Sensor" button
located on the Sensors Parameters page to remove the "ID" error code.
Lost
A: It means that the End Device found the Coordinator when it was powered on, but it
cannot communicate with it currently.
Make sure the Coordinator and the End Device have the same Network ID (NID). Also,
make sure the Coordinator is powered on, the IEEE802.15.4 communication channel is
unchanged, DIP switch #1 (of the 8-DIP switch row) on the Coordinator was ON during
the last Coordinator’s power reset, 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.
77
Appendix G Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) (continued)
Q: The Chart trend line for all the variables are broken, what could be wrong?
A: It indicates that a TCP connection to the Coordinator was timed-out and no data was
obtained. Make sure the Coordinator 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 End Device is broken, what could be
wrong?
A: It indicates that TCP connection to the Coordinator is good but the Coordinator did
not have any readings from the corresponding End Device. Make sure End Device is still
blinking according to the update rate. It could be caused by a reset/power cycling of the
Coordinator as well.
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 Coordinator.
Q: The End Device repeatedly makes 4 blinks every 2 seconds and then goes off for 3
minutes, what does this mean?
A: It is equivalent to getting a "Lost" message in the Java applets. It means that the End
Device found the Coordinator when it was powered on, but it cannot communicate with it
currently. Make sure the Coordinator and the End Device have the same Network ID
(NID). Also, make sure the Coordinator is powered on, the IEEE802.15.4 communication
channel is unchanged, the first DIP switch (of the 8-DIP switch row) on the Coordinator
was on during the last Coordinator’s power reset, 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: While the End Device is up and running I notice a sequence of blinking patterns that
seem to repeat themselves, what could be wrong?
A: It means that the End Device needs several retransmissions before getting an
acknowledgement packet back from the Coordinator. This indicates a reduced
performance since more retransmissions required. Retransmissions consume power and
cause shorter battery lifetime. Adjust the antenna and relocate the End Device for better
communications. See Section 5 for more details.

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 – 2483.5 MHz in Europe is
limited to a Maximum of 10 mW (10dBm) 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 Coordinator. The End Devices will follow the power level set on the
Coordinator upon power-up; failure to change the default U.S.A. power level setting will
violate the regulations requirements for Europe

Temperature Accuracy Chart
Accuracies are tested at Manufacture’s Outgoing Quality Control at 25°C (77°F) and 3.3V.
Values exclude hysteresis and non-linearity, and is only applicable to noncondensing
environments.
I.2 Operating Conditions
Sensor works stable within
recommended normal range – see
Figure. Long term exposures to
conditions outside normal range,
especially at humidity >80%RH, may
temporarily offset the RH signal (+3
%RH after 60h). After return to normal
range it will slowly return towards
calibration state by itself. See
Section I.4 “Reconditioning
Procedure” to accelerate eliminating
the offset. Prolonged exposure to
extreme conditions may accelerate
ageing.

Appendix I
Sensor Information (continued)
I.3 Storage Conditions and Handling Instructions
It is of great importance to understand that a humidity sensor is not a normal electronic
component and needs to be handled with care.
Chemical vapors at high concentration in combination with long exposure times may offset
the sensor reading. For these reasons it is recommended to store the sensors in original
packaging including the sealed ESD bag at following conditions: Temperature shall be in the
range of 10°C – 50°C (0 – 80°C for limited time) and humidity at 20 – 60%RH (sensors that
are not stored in ESD bags). For sensors that have been removed from the original
packaging we recommend to store them in ESD bags made of PE-HD8.
In manufacturing and transport the sensors shall be prevented of high concentration of
chemical solvents and long exposure times. Out-gassing of glues, adhesive tapes and
stickers or out-gassing packaging material such as bubble foils, foams, etc. shall be avoided.
Manufacturing area shall be well ventilated.
I.4 Reconditioning Procedure
As stated above extreme conditions or exposure to solvent vapors may offset the sensor. The
following reconditioning procedure may bring the sensor back to calibration state:
Baking: 100 – 105°C at < 5%RH for 10h
Re-Hydration: 20 – 30°C at ~ 75%RH for 12h.
(75%RH can conveniently be generated with saturated NaCl solution. 100 – 105°C
correspond to 212 – 221°F, 20 – 30°C correspond to 68 – 86°F)
I.5 Temperature Effects
Relative humidity reading strongly depends on temperature. Therefore, it is essential to keep
humidity sensors at the same temperature as the air of which the relative humidity is to be
measured. In case of testing or qualification the reference sensor and test sensor must show
equal temperature to allow for comparing humidity readings.
The packaging of sensor is designed for minimal heat transfer from the pins to the sensor.
Still, if the sensor shares a PCB with electronic components that produce heat it should be
mounted in a way that prevents heat transfer or keeps it as low as possible. Furthermore,
there are self-heating effects in case the measurement frequency is too high.
I.6 Light
The sensor is not light sensitive. Prolonged direct exposure to sunshine or strong UV
radiation may age the housing.
I.7 Materials Used for Sealing / Mounting
Many materials absorb humidity and will act as a buffer increasing response times and
hysteresis. Materials in the vicinity of the sensor must therefore be carefully chosen.
Recommended materials are: Any metals, LCP, POM (Delrin), PTFE (Teflon), PE, PEEK, PP,
PB, PPS, PSU, PVDF, PVF. For sealing and gluing (use sparingly): Use high filled epoxy for
electronic packaging (e.g. glob top, underfill), and Silicone.
Out-gassing of these materials may also contaminate the sensor (see Section I.3). Therefore
try to add the sensor as a last manufacturing step to the assembly, store the assembly well
ventilated after manufacturing or bake at 50°C for 24h to outgas contaminants before
packing.
