When a sensor order is placed with Primex, each sensor must be configured to add them to your OneVue account.
If Device Preconfiguration was not selected when an order was placed, when the sensors arrive at your facility they're required to be configured onsite with the OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) app. During their OWDC configuration, each sensor is added to your OneVue account.
The following details what's required to configure a sensor with the OWDC app.
OWDC app installed on your Android mobile device: download the OWDC app from the Google Play Store. Search for the OneVue Wired Device Configurator.
Android mobile device requirements: Android OS version 4.4 or later. Minimum 25% battery life remaining. Device must support USB Host or USB OTG mode. To verify USB support, check with the Android device manufacturer.
App login: your OneVue user profile must be assigned to the Account Admin role. You will log in to the app with your OneVue user name (email address) and password.
Connection cable (not supplied): the cable connects the Primex device to your Android device and also provides the power source to the Primex device during configuration.
Cables can be purchased from Primex. Contact Primex Technical Support to verify the cable required for your application use. Part No. NTUSBADAPTER Mini-Din, USB-C, USB T-adapter. Part No. Q13797 USB to Mini cable.
OneVue Network Profile: during configuration, the Sensor is assigned to an existing Network Profile.
From the OWDC app, you cannot create a new Network Profile. Before you begin, from OneVue verify a Network Profile exists or create a new Network Profile. From OneVue, go to Devices > Networks. To create a new network, from the bottom section select +New.
For a Non-DHCP network, during configuration you are required to provide the device's static IP address.
OWDC cannot be used with devices that require EAP-TLS certificates for network authentication or any type of network certificate. Devices requiring this type of authentication must be configured through Device Preconfiguration, and when the devices arrive onsite the certificates are required to be uploaded to the devices using the Primex Device Configuration software. The devices will then be able to successfully authenticate to the facility's network and check-in to OneVue.
What is the sensor monitoring?: its assigned Monitored Asset. You can create a new Monitored Asset or if assigning to an existing Monitored asset, you can enter the exact name as it appears in OneVue.
Business Unit: an existing OneVue Business Unit. From the app, you cannot create a new Business Unit.
Normal Condition (Range): the expected, normal operating condition of the sensor's assigned Monitored Asset, which is dependent on the type of sensor.
Temperature: low to high range in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Humidity: low to high range in Relative Humidity (RH).
Differential Pressure: positive or negative pressure and either the minimum or maximum in INH20 or PASCAL.
Water Leak: set to Dry and cannot be changed.
Contact Closure: set to Closed and cannot be changed.
From your Android device, open the OWDC app.
Select OneVue Monitor.
Enter your OneVue username > select Next > enter your password > select Log In.
Remove AC power from the sensor. During the next step, it receives power from its connection to your Android device. If battery power is enabled, leave this on.
Set the sensor into configuration mode. Connect the sensor to your Android device using a USB OTG or a USB C cable (dependent on your device).
App displays "Add Device" and its LCD displays "Con", which indicates it's in configuration mode.
To assign or update its network > select a Network Type > select an available Network > and select Next.
Configure its primary settings. For a dual type sensor, this step appears twice.
What are you monitoring?: either enter a new Monitored Asset or if assigning an existing Monitored Asset enter its exact name as it appears in OneVue.
Business Unit: select an existing Business Unit. If you edit the current assigned Business Unit, the Business Unit assigned to the sensor and Monitored Asset are both updated.
Range (Normal Condition): enter the expected normal condition for what the sensor is monitoring (Monitored Asset).
The app configures the Sensor and displays its configuration status.
Do not remove the connection between the Sensor and your Android device until prompted.
When the Disconnect Device message appears, remove the wired connection between the Sensor and your Android device and reapply AC power to the sensor.
Once disconnected, the app verifies the device successfully checked-in to OneVue. If after 15 minutes it does not check-in, the app displays a status message.
Temp Sensor only: its LCD may display "Err" due to a no probe connection. To clear the error state and reset the Lo/Hi Collection Period, insert a probe into the sensor jack and press and release the sensor Alarm Silence button (bell icon).
All sensor models: if a firmware update is available, it may also take time to download firmware (Sensor LCD displays UP).
You can now configure additional devices or close the app when you’re done.
