Configuring Blue Puck/Coin sensor

ELA sensor app.PNG

Bluetooth LE Blue Puck and Blue Coin sensors are disabled by default. Configurations to these sensors are written through NFC.
To do this download Device Manager Mobile by Ela from Google Play Store to your Android-powered device.
Note! Android-powered device that is used for configuring Blue Puck/Coin sensors must support NFC read/write functionality.

Follow these instructions to easily configure Blue Puck/Coin Bluetooth LE sensor:

  • Enable Bluetooth and NFC on your Android-powered device.
  • Launch Device Manager Mobile on your Android-powered device.
  • Select Configuration.
  • Place your Android-powered device on top of Blue Puck/Coin sensor to scan it.
  • Click Enable to allow Blue Puck/Coin sensor transmit advertising data. If it shows a tick, it is already connected to your phone.
  • We recommend to set Power to 4 to get the best possible distance.
  • Set BLE Emit Period to 1 seconds to get best possible sensor detection.
  • Click Write button.
  • Place your Android-powered device on top of Blue Puck/Coin sensor to write configuration to it.

Once the configuration is written successfully, the Blue Puck/Coin sensor will be enabled and use the settings configured in the APP.

NOTE! Make sure that Manufacturer data mode is Disabled, otherwise BLE sensor will not be detected without additional changes in the device configuration.

  • MAC nRF Connect.jpg
    Type your Blue Puck/Coin MAC address in MAC field. You can check what is your MAC address by using nRF connect for Mobile app from Google Play.
  • Configure the sensor fields according to the type of sensor used. More information about these settings can be found on Blue Puck/Coin presets section.
  • After all these steps press Save to device to save configuration.












To check if the device has already received data from Blue Puck/Coin Bluetooth LE sensor, follow these steps:
  • Navigate toStatus section.
  • Press I/O Info and look if BLE Temp has any values (depends on the type of sensor being used).

To check if the device has already received data from Blue Puck/Coin Bluetooth LE sensor, follow these steps:

  • Navigate toI/O section.
  • configure BLE Temp section #1 if you only have one sensor configured.
  • Set sensor priority High to immediately send a record.
  • Select Temperature range (LowHigh)
  • Select Operand:
    • On Entrance – when temperature enters specified range, the device sends a record to the server.
    • On Exit – when temperature exits specified range, the device sends record to the server.
    • On Both – Sends a record when device enters or exits specified range.

Record received to the Server

  • Device sent a record when it entered the range between 24 – 24.5 C

Backup Tracker

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Sometimes periodical/scheduler record overwrites backup alarm record if both records are created at a same time.
  • Possible workaround would be to disable periodical records:
    • TrackingTracking Mode: None

Introduction to Backup Tracker functionality

TAT100 supports a feature which allows to work as backup tracker.

1. Even if Backup tracker is in alarm mode, device will continue to track its position as configured.
2. If FMBXXX device is turned off, Alarm event from the TAT100 will be received and AVL 236 in the data packet will be sent.

How does it work on TAT100?

NOTE: If TAT100 does not pick up advertised data packets from main tracker, TAT100 enters alarm state, generates and starts sending records with AVL ID 236 (Value 0).

Instructions

To ENABLE backup feature on TAT100 device:

  1. Bluetooth → select Backup Tracker
  2. Enter main device (FMBxxx/TFT100/TST100/GH5200/TMT250) IMEI
  3. Set Update frequency to 3600 (s) – We do not recommend to set values below 1800 sec. in this field, as it will shorten the battery life.
  4. Configure your APN and Server settings in GPRS section.
