These instructions provide the steps to configure a Transmitter for standalone use. Standalone use indicates a Transmitter will be not monitored from OneVue. Be sure to complete the steps in the order as they appear below.
For a system with more than one Transmitter, first configure and install the main Transmitter and verify it received a valid time signal and then configure Repeater Transmitters. When all Transmitters are configured and installed, you can then configure and install the system clocks or InfoBoards.
Before you begin, verify the requirements below are met.
All external components are installed, including an external antenna and GPS Receiver.
All Transmitter connections are established and it's powered on.
NTP time source
The main Transmitter requires connection to wired Ethernet network and NTP Servers IP address (up to three allowed). If wired Ethernet network is a Non-DCHP network, the IPv4 network settings are required during configuration.
Port UDP 123 is required to be open for use with an external Network Time Protocol (NTP) Server. The use of internal a NTP Server is also supported.
Open the ODC app.
Select Standalone Configuration.
Set the Transmitter into Bluetooth discoverable mode.
From the Transmitter front panel, press and release the Bluetooth pairing button. The Transmitter is discoverable for the next two minutes (Power LED is illuminated and Transmit LED flashes).
From available devices, select the Transmitter. If multiple devices are listed, the device can be identified by its 12-character MAC address located on its back panel.
If the Transmitter is not listed, select the app Refresh icon.
Verify its factory specifications.
MAC Address: Unique 12-character MAC Address discoverable on the facility's network. The MAC address is printed on a label located on the Transmitter's back panel.
Model: Identifies the Primex device model. All OneVue Sync Transmitters are identified by Transmitter (TX400).
Tx Mode: Identifies the Transmitter hardware configuration. Indicates if 1, 5, or 30 Watt and internal or external antenna.
Enter a Name for the Transmitter.
Verify Call Sign (preset by Primex).
Set its Time Zone to the install location.
Set its Time Source.
The app detects the Transmitter time source.
If a GPS Receiver is detected, displays GPS Time Received. If GPS Receiver is not detected, displays the NTP Server settings.
If the Transmitter will use NTP, which requires an Ethernet connection, enter the NTP Server settings.
Set its RF Channel/Receive Channel.
Repeater Transmitter only. Select Advanced Options to configure its Repeater Transmit Channel.
Optional settings, select Advanced Options.
The settings below (Transmit Continuously and Normal Transmit) should only be changed when requested or approved by an authorized Primex support technician.
