Setting up Digital Node (BEAM-DG) This page provides information on setting up a Digital Node to work with the offline Ackcio Beam gateway. Installation The Nodes can be directly affixed to a flat surface using M6 screws. However, for more sophisticated mounting scenarios, we recommend using the node bracket.
Use four screws and nuts to attach the node to the bracket Connect the SMA antenna to the bulkhead. Once the mounting is complete, the node should look as follows.
Node Setup 1.Connect the node antenna to the antenna bulkhead. 2. Connect the sensor wires to the node while ensuring that the wires are plugged in correctly. RS232 Port PWR : Positive power input (e.g.+12V) GND : Negative power input of sensor TX : Transmit out (TX) output of sensor RX : Receive input (RX) of sensor SHLD : Shield wire of sensor...
Configuring via the Ackcio Beam App 1.Download Ackcio Beam app at Google Playstore and connect to Gateway WiFi.
2. Plug in the USB end of the cable via an OTG adapter to your Android phone.
3. Important! Please make sure the Node is switch off before connecting to your Android phone. 4. Plugin micro USB end to the Node. 5. Switch on the Node.
6. Open the Ackcio Beam app on the phone. On toggle button, "Cloud" option is for Ackcio Online Live version. "Gateway" option is for Offline version. Please choose "Gateway" to proceed with offline version. (Please note that you need to add the Node and create the project first before you commission the node.
(ii) Press "Reset" button on the Node itself. Then click on “Setup Device” on the lower left menu on Ackcio app, the app will show connected node information. If the connection is unsuccessful, press "Reset" button on Node and connect again.
(iii) <Optional Step> If Wireless Mesh (Relay) function is to be deployed, click on "Wireless Mesh" toggle button to enable. Once done, click on “Setup Sensor”, you can now configure the sensor settings.
(iv) You will see this page with the + sign button at the lower right area. Click that to configure the sensor.
(v) You can input your sensor information. Sensor Code: Your desired sensor name. Sensor Address: Serial number of the sensor. Sensor Type: Select respective sensor type. Parameters: Turn on the parameters as connected to the Node.
(vi) Click Save Sensor. The Node will now read the sensor that was just configured. (vii) On next page, you will see the first reading.
(viii) To get another reading, click on the arrow icon. Click on + icon to add more sensors.
(ix) Once all sensors are configured, click on “Enable Sensor” button.
(x) It will then take you to next page “Scanning Network” which will scan the wireless signal strength (RSSI) between the Node and Gateway.
(xi) After you get the Network Test information, if you need to, you can perform another network test by pressing the button located at the lower right corner.
(xii) After that, click “Start Monitoring” button then the app will prompt “Device commissioned”. Click OK.
(xiii) Important! Next step, please press the Cloud Sync button at lower right area to send all the configuration information back to the gateway. (xiv) If you would like to get the Node to immediately send a reading to the Gateway, please press the “SYS TEST”...
