Gateway Update

With the Gateway Update option, it is possible to carry out updates for the network and bluetooth drivers of your Gateway device. To achieve this, it is necessary to connect the Gateway to a network, if you don’t know how to do this please visit our Gateway Configuration section. Once you configure the wifi network on the gateway, connect your cellphone to the same network and go to the phantom manager app. Select Gateway Update

Here you can view the following information:

  • Latest version available for Wi-Fi
  • Latest version available for Bluetooth
  • Gateway ID
  • Gateway IP
  • Current Wi-Fi version
  • Current Bluetooth version

Find your gateway on the list and click Update which will start the update.

At the end we will get the following message:

* In case of not obtaining an automatic connection it is possible to carry out a manual update described in the next section.

Manual Mode

If the Gateway is not found automatically, it is possible to perform a manual search knowing the IP address. To do this, we select the Manual Mode option on the information screen:

which will take us to the following screen where we type the address shown on the Gateway display and click Update:

We wait for the installation to finish, which will show us the following message:

Node Configuration

The Node configuration option allows the user to modify the data collection behavior of Phantom sensors directly from the sensor. To access this configuration it is necessary to click on the Node Configuration Option and scan your phantom QR code or select the phantom from the list just like you did on Node Update section.

Once connected you will access the following Menu:

Next, we will describe in detail the use and operation of each subsection of this configuration.

Max Transfer Power

Power of the transmisión signal of the phantom. (Recommended to set at 8dBM)

Recording Mode

With this option, you can configure the sensor data collection process with two possible alternatives:                              

  • Interval: Stablish the Interval for data recording using time in minutes. f.e. Take data every 360 minutes (6 hours). Min 10 minutes and max 2880 minutes.
  • Time of the day: It establishes an hour (or hours) for the sensor measurement, allowing to control the machine’s operating and rest times. Select Add to create a new schedule or Remove to delete it.

Measurement settings

  • Range: Sets the sensitivity of the sensor with options of ± 8g, ± 16g and ± 32g for the High-Frequency Sensor; and ± 2g, ± 4g, and ± 8g for the Low-Frequency Sensor.
  • Recording settings: This option will allow you to change the sensor measurement time and to select single axis or all axis recording data. Select between 1s, 2s, 4s, 8s, or 16s  * The frequency range is altered
  • How Many Samples to record: This allows you to choose between using the hole resolution of the phantom or the complete memory of the device for the recording.
  • Single Axis Selection: If you choose a single axis on the recording settings, this option will let you choose which axis to send, X, Y, and Z, or to send the all axis sequentially. 

  • RMS send interval: The number of seconds that will take the phantom to send his RMS values. 
  • RMS Min Frequency: The minimum value of frequency on Hz that will be taking into count on the RMS values calculation.
  • RMS Max Frequency: The maximum value of frequency on Hz that will be taking into count on the RMS values calculation.

  • Enable permanent incoming connections, will allow you to connect to the phantom without restarting it with a magnetic key.
  • Disable connection to phantom gateway will turn off the phantom for any gateway around, we will only be able to connect with WiSER Vibe app. 

EI Monitor Module Update

To update your Monitor Module it is necessary to connect your cell phone to the same network where the Module is located. Once done, we select the option Monitor Module Update in the application, which will show us the following screen:

On this screen, we place the IP of our Module which we can find on the Gateway screen with the legend IP Monitor. We click Update and wait for the update to finish.

Gateway Config 

Connect the Gateway to a network, if you don’t know how to do this please visit our Gateway Configuration section. Once you configure the wifi network on the gateway, connect your cellphone to the same network and go to the phantom manager app. Select Gateway config.

Find your gateway serial number and IP on the list and select Config. We see the following screen:

  • Wireless connection: To select a WiFi connection you need to do the following:
    1. Choose between the options in SSID
    2. Type the password of the selected WiFi Network
    3. Click on Save Settings
  • IP Settings: Some companies require Wi-Fi device connection via static IP. Consult a local network administrator for the required addresses to Static IP configuration. To configure the Gateway this way you need to fill these fields. Example:
    1. IP address: 192.168.100.34
    2. Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    3. Default gateway: 192.168.100.1
  • Monitor configuration: In most cases, the EI Monitor IP address will be detected automatically as long as both the Phantom Gateway and EI Monitor are in the same subnet. If the EI Monitor IP address is not detected automatically (because it’s in a different subnet) you can mark the “Static Monitor configuration” checkbox and enter the EI Monitor IP address in the “Monitor IP Address” field.

  • Work as a repeater: Connect to another Phantom Gateway that is already connected to either WiFi or Ethernet. 
  • Disable Wifi: Avoids the Wifi connection.
  • Send data to cloud: Send data directly to cloud services like EI-Analytic. 
  • Time Zone: Select your time zone on the list.
  • Alternate cloud services: Send data to different cloud services. If nothing is changed here the endpoint is EI-Analytic cloud services.
