INTRODUCTION TO PROCESSSENSOR PRODUCT LINES
BeanDevice® ProcessSensor sensor product lines were designed by our research and development team in
order to be adapted for analog measurement (4-20 mA, ±5V, ±10V, ±20mV, ±40mV) in harsh industrial
environment.
These products offer the following advanced features:
System data acquisition for external analog sensors
Providing power supply to external industrial sensors
Back Up data acquisition on an internal flash memory (embedded dataLogger)
Transmitting data by wireless
Manage sleep or activation mode

volts or ±10 volts.
BeanDevice® AN-mV
Wireless system acquisition for analog differential measurement ±20
mV
This product is dedicated to sensors integrating a Wheatstone bridge
(strain gauge sensors, load cell sensors, pressure…).
Industrial sensors commonly use a 4-20 mA DC signal. With this method, the sensor signal is
conveyed as a current. Raw output of the sensor will either be 4 mA at the lowest or 20 mA at the
highest. By examining the current between 4 and 20 mA an actual reading can be determined. For
example, assume an air temperature sensor has a range of 0°C to 100°C. If the output from the
temperature sensor is 4 mA, then the temperature is 0°C. If the output from the sensor is 20 mA, then the
temperature is 100°C. Readings between 4 and 20 mA are linear and simple to determine.

One of the major advantages of using 4-20 mA sensors is the limited signal loss of these devices. By
outputting a sensor signal in the form of current, electrically noisy areas do not have an effect on the
sensor’s readings. Furthermore, accuracy is not affected by changes in line and connection resistance, or
by the addition of other loads in the circuit.

6.8.1 Antenna diversity
Antenna diversity is a technique that maximizes the performance of an antenna system. It allows the radio
to switch between two antennas that have very low correlation between their received signals. Typically,
this is achieved by spacing two antennas around 0.25 wavelengths apart or by using two orthogonal
polarizations. So, if a packet is transmitted and no acknowledgement is received, the radio system can
switch to the other antenna for the retry, with a different probability of success.

SENSOR INTERFACE
6.9.1 How to connect a sensor on your BeanDevice® ?
Several types of sensor can be plugged on your BeanDevice®:
 Current loop 4-20 mA
 Analog low voltage measurement ±20 mV
 Analog differential measurement ±10 V
Connecting a sensor is very easy but it requests to follow up several steps:
Step 1: Access the
configuration tab for the
selected sensor channel.
Step 2: Configure the
sensor power supply
Step 3: Connect your sensor
on the BeanDevice
•Mount the M12 Plug on your sensor . Follow the wiring
code available on this document;
• Don't plug your sensor on your BeanDevice® AN-XX;
•From your BeanScape® software, click on the sensor profile
associated to your BeanDevice®
• Enter the value of your sensor power supply;
• A message appears on the screen, left click on "OK" to
confirm.
•Plug your sensor on your BeanDevice® AN-XX, an otch on
the M12 connector allows a single way connection;
•Rotate the dial clockwise until fully tightened (do not
overdo the rotating ring)
•You can start the calibration of your sensor from the
BeanScape®;
Sensors are not provided with the BeanDevice® AN-XX series

Table 2: External sensor power supply specifications
In order to optimize the low consumption on the BeanDevice®, the power supply provided to the sensor
operates in switching mode:
 Before performing a measurement, the sensor is powered by the BeanDevice®. The
pretreatment time is fixed by the end-user, it will reflect the time needed to stabilize the
measurement signal after the sensor power-up;
 When all the measurement are done, the sensor is immediately power down ;
 This cycle is repeated each time a data acquisition or a stream of data acquisition must be
made;

 Choose a sensor that requires a power supply having a pre-process duration as low as possible,
otherwise you will decrease the BeanDevice® battery autonomy.
 Some sensors require a very long pre-process duration (1-2 minutes) and some others sensors will
work with a lot of current consumption. In this case we advise you to power up the sensor with an
external power source.
 If your pre-process period is higher than your data acquisition cycle, it will be automatically
adjusted by the BeanDevice®.
Don’t forget to pre-configure the supply voltage and the pre-process duration of your sensor
before connecting it. By configuring wrongly you risk to damage your sensor.

Description
Low duty cycle data acquisition is adapted for static measurement
(tilt, pressure, temperature) requiring a low power consumption
on your BeanDevice®. The duty cycle can be configured between 1
data acquisition & transmission per second to 1 data acquisition &
transmission per day.
Data acquisitions are transmitted by radio whenever an alarm
threshold (fixed by the user) is reached (4 alarms threshold levels
High/Low).
Survey mode is a mix between the LDCDA mode and Alarm mode.
A data acquisition is transmitted

Whenever an alarm threshold (fixed by the user) is reached (4
alarm threshold levels High/Low).

A transmission cycle is reached, the transmission cycle is
configurable through the BeanScape® 1s to 24h ;
Streaming Packet Streaming packet is more suitable for users requiring a high data
sampling rate (maximum 5 KHz). In order to achieve these
performances, data sampling are transmitted by packet;
Streaming
Streaming mode is more suitable for users requiring a real-time
data transmission (with time latency under 10ms).

Parameter
Description
Diagnostic cycle
You can set the BeanDevice® diagnostic cycle (Battery status, LQI, PER
...). The Diagnostic cycle is modulo the data acquisition cycle.
Ex: If you try to set the diagnostic cycle at 10s while the data acquisition
cycle is set at 20s, the diagnostic cycle will be adjusted to 10s ;
TX Power
BeanDevice® TX Power unit is in dBm, it represents the power ratio in
decibels (dB) of the measured power referenced to one milliwatt (mW).
The antenna radio power is not included. If the BeanDevice® PER is high
or the LQI is too low, try to increase the transmission power.
The following flow chart shows the effect of a higher TX power:
• Tx Power Increases

• Power consumption will increase
If you fix the TX power at its minimum value (-7dBm), and the wireless range is more than 5m,
you will lose the radio signal. To find a configuration with a maximum RF: by pressing the Network
Context button, you can reset to factory settings (default RF power is fixed at its maximum: 18 dBm)
Please consider the environment before printing this document.

Some recommendations:
If you fix the TX power at its minimum value (-7dBm): you will lose the radio link between your
BeanGateway® and the BeanDevice®, if the wireless range is more than 5m,
By pressing the Network push button for more than 2s, you can reset to factory settings (default
RF power is fixed at its maximum: 18 dBm).
How to convert dBm to mW
Zero dBm equals one milliwatt. A 3dB increase represents roughly doubling the power, which means that
3 dBm equals roughly 2 mW. For a 3 dB decrease, the power is reduced by about one half, making −3
dBm equal to about 0.5 milliwatt. To express an arbitrary power P as x dBm, or go in the other direction,
the following equations may be used:
or,
and
or,
where P is the power in W and x is the power ratio in dBm.
Inside a building, the maximum authorized power is +12 dBm (antenna power included). It is
highly recommended to follow the R&TTE guidelines. For more information please visit
http://www.etsi.org. It is your responsibility to carefully observe the R&TTE guidelines.

BeanDevice® version
BeanDevice® AN-mV
Current consumption during
radio TX at 25°C, powered by a
battery of 3,6V
60-61 mA (external sensor
power supply not included)
Current consumption in sleep
mode at 25°C, powered by a
battery of 3,6V
< 40 uA

BeanDevice®:
Influence factors on battery
autonomy
Sleep power mode on the
BeanDevice®
Observations
The BeanDevice® can be
configured with sleep mode
from the BeanScape®
interface
Recommendations
By activating sleep power mode on
your BeanDevice®, you will
dramatically decrease battery
autonomy of your BeanDevice®.
By activating sleep mode, the
BeanDevice® current consumption
can decrease from 30 mA to 10-45
micro-amperes.
For further information, please read
the technical note TN_RF_010 –
« BeanDevice® Power Management »
Sampling rate in streaming
mode
The higher your sample rate,
the higher the RF
transmissions are more
consistent and your
consumption will grow.
Choose the right sampling rate on
your BeanScape® interface.
TX Power
More your TX power is
important more the current
consumption of the
BeanDevice® is important
If your wireless range is low, try to
use a lower TX Power.
Packet Error Rate (PER)
A high packet error rate can
cause a higher retransmission
data and this increase the
current consumption.
Try to replace your BeanDevice® in
an area where the radio link is
much better (see Link Quality
Indicator value).

10.3.1.1 Packet Error Rate
Packet error rate (PER) is the number packet errors divided by the total number of transferred packet
during a studied time interval. PER is a unit less performance measure, often expressed as a percentage
number.
PER is only available with IEEE 802.15.4 Network, it represents the ratio of “lost data/data send” between
the BeanDevice® and the BeanGateway®.
10.3.1.2 LQI (Link Quality Indicator )
LQI (Link Quality Indicator) represents the radio signal quality in your Environment. It is possible that LQI is
low due to EMC interference or metal presence in the environment.
If you encounter such problems, several solutions are proposed to increase your LQI:
 Use the Maximum TX Power on your BeanDevice. The maximum TX Power authorized in Europe for
indoor application is 12 dBm. For Outdoor application, you are authorized to extend the TX Power

to 18 dBm. You can easily configure the TX Power on your BeanDevice from your BeanScape WSN
software supervision.
 Try to configure your receiver antenna and your transmitter antenna on the same antenna pattern
(cf. the Beam with of your antenna)
 Use a high gain antenna ( in outdoor use only) for a better RF Link Budget
 Fix your BeanDevice & BeanGateway on a top of a mast or a building.
For further information, read the application note on “How to extend your wireless range?”
10.3.1.3 Internal temperature monitoring
An internal temperature sensor is used for onboard & battery temperature monitoring
10.3.1.4 Battery charge monitoring
Battery charge is based on current accumulation. The BeanDevice® integrates a current accumulator
circuit which facilitates remaining capacity estimation by tracking the net current flow into and out of
the battery. Current flow into the battery increments the current accumulator while current flow out of
the battery decrements it.
Voltage measurement corresponds to battery voltage.

11. TROUBLESHOOTING
Why the Red LED is flashing?
Each time a packet is lost by the BeanDevice®, Nwk/Activity led will blink in red. Try to decrease the
wireless range between the BeanGateway® and the BeanDevice®.
Why the BeanDevice® LEDS are not activated?
If there is no wireless network activity, the led will be inactive. Make sure you have powered your
BeanDevice® with a charged battery.
What should I do if the radio channel is perturbated?
Please turn off your BeanDevice ®, and then choose an appropriate channel. The channel selection is done
from the BeanGateway ®.
For further information, please Read BeanGateway User's Manual BeanGateway ®.
Why the BeanDevice® does not provide the right measurement value?
-
Check if your sensor channel is activated on your BeanScape® interface (ON Position)?;
-
Check if your BeanDevice® is powered up;
-
Check your LQI quality, if your LQI is under 50-60. You must change your antenna position, or your product
position;
-
Check your data acquisition mode, maybe you have specified a data acquisition which is too long ;
-
If you use a BeanDevice® AN-XX :

Check your sensor power supply, maybe you need to increase/decrease your power supply;

Check your sensor preprocess time. Maybe your sensor preprocess time is too short ?

Check the wiring code of your sensor plug ;
Why the BeanDevice® doesn’t respond when I try to configure it (Over-the-air-configuration)?

If your BeanDevice® operates in sleep mode, the RF Hardware is also in sleep mode. Therefore an Overthe-air-configuration will not be possible.

Check the LQI (Link Quality Indicator) value, if this value is under 80, the over-the-air configuration will not
be easy. Try to decrease the wireless range between the BeanDevice® and the BeanGateway®.
Please consider the environment before printing this document.

If your BeanDevice® works in streaming mode, in order to keep a full synchronization of the data
acquisition, any over-the-air-configuration is authorized.
Why do I have too much noise on my sensor signal ?

If you use a BeanDevice® AX3D/HI-INC/AX-HD : don’t forget to configure the cutoff frequency of your antialiasing filter

If you use a BeanDevice® AN-mV: use a shielded cable.
