If you should close your web browser or log out during this procedure, all information provided is saved and you can return to the procedure from your To Do list.
Go to the Dashboard. Your Dashboard To Do list identifies any order that is required to be configured.
From the To Do list, select the order to be configured.
From the Begin Device Preconfiguration page, you can either select to complete the device preconfiguration on your own or have a Primex Project Manager contact you to assist you.
If you selected have a Primex Project Manager contact me: Provide the information to schedule a Preconfiguration Consult and select Submit.
If you selected I'll try it on my own: You are guided through the configuration process for each device as defined in the following steps.
From the Existing Networks, review the networks listed.
If the devices can be assigned to a network listed:Select I'll use one of these.
If you will not be assigning a network to the order's devices: Select I'll use one of these and when assigning a network to the device select No Network.
If there are no networks listed or if the devices cannot use a network listed: Select I want to create a new network. Enter the network settings from the Create A New Network screen. Select Show Advanced Options to view all options and settings.
From the Configuring Devices screen, assign a network and enter the settings for each device. Each setting is optional and can be skipped if you are not ready to assign a network or provide the settings.
The settings for each device include:
Network Profile: Assign a network to the device. Assigning a network allows the device to connect to your network as soon as power is applied to the device at your facility. If a network is not assigned, your staff is required to manually configure the device for the network onsite.
You can either select an existing Network Profile, create a new Network Profile, or select No Network if a network cannot be assigned or created at this time. If you are creating a new network, select Show Advanced Options to view all of the network profile settings.
What Will this Monitor? (Monitored Asset): The Monitored Asset is what the sensor device is monitoring and the readings logged by the sensor are linked to the Monitored Asset. The sensor is assigned to the Monitored Asset and its readings and operating conditions are linked to the Monitored Asset. You can create a new Monitored Asset or select an existing Monitored Asset. To create a new asset, start typing into the field.
Label: Information printed on the label affixed to the sensor device by Primex. By default, set to the first 20 characters of the Monitored Asset name. Allows up to a maximum of 20 characters. If an existing Monitored Asset (What Will This Monitor) is selected, the label value cannot be changed.
Range: The lowest acceptable reading to the highest acceptable reading. This setting is to be set to the expected, normal operating range of the sensor's assigned Monitored Asset.
Advanced device settings (optional)
You may choose to provide the advanced device settings. To view the advanced settings, select Show Advanced Options.
The period of time a sensor reading is allowed out of range before the sensor and its Monitored Asset is set to an Alarm state with a status of Out of Range, Past Alarm Delay.
Network IPv4 address: The primary network IPv4 address assigned to the Primex device gateway to allow its connection to your facility’s network. The network assigned, is required to be a non-DHCP network.
Alternate network: Serves as a backup network if the connection to the primary network is not available.
Alternate IPv4 address: Serves as a backup IPv4 address if the connection to the primary IPv4 address is not available or fails.
Location: Create new Location or assign the device to an existing Location.
If any settings are skipped and Confirm Shipment is selected the device(s) are shipped from Primex. Failure to assign a network profile will require the network to be assigned onsite using the OWDC app.
Once you have completed (or optionally skipped) the preconfiguration steps for all devices, the preconfiguration summary page is displayed. From the list, you can also change a setting by selecting Change.
Once you are ready to process the order with the preconfiguration settings provided, select Confirm Shipment.
The devices are preconfigured by Primex.
Your OneVue account ID and the provided settings are configured into each device.
Devices and their packaging are labeled with the settings provided during preconfiguration.
The devices are added to your OneVue account. The devices are only listed in your account and are not active. A device does not become active until it establishes a connection to your network and connects to your OneVue account.
If a device was assigned to a new Monitored Asset, the Monitored Asset is assigned to the account Business Unit.
If a network profile was assigned during preconfiguration, once power is applied to the device it attempts to connect to the network.
If a network profile was not assigned to a device or if the network settings were entered incorrectly, the device will require its network to be assigned to using the OWDC app.
