The EchoView contains no sensors. Its built-in radio board operates on a frequency of 2.4GHz and complies with IEEE standard. It works with the FMC2000 wireless controller on a flexible, robust wireless network to provide reliable, lowcost operation. Up to four EchoViews can operate on a single network. It also works in a ProRAE Guardian network with a PC. 9 3.1 Key Features Up to 45 days continuous operation using external battery box IEEE Mesh network functionality with 64-bit encryption Mesh network with auto network forming and configuration Operating distance: up to 300 m, line of sight Very low-cost installation no hardwiring involved Large area coverage with multi-hop mesh network Field-replaceable battery Loud audio alarm, 30cm (12 ) Easy-to-read continuous display of signal strength Bright red flashing alarm Highly resistant to RFI interference IP-65 rated for outdoor use in harsh environments 10 4 Physical Description LED alarm 2 LCD (with backlighting) 3 Buzzer alarm 4 Battery cover (on bottom) 5 Y/+, MODE, and N/- keys 6 Antenna 11 4.1 LCD Display (Monitoring) Selected monitor (solid circle or star)* 2 Unselected monitor (open circle or star) 3 Offline monitor (open circle with X ) 4 Radio transmission indicator 5 Audible alarm on/off indicator ( on shown) 6 Battery indicator 7 Arrow indicating more than 8 instruments Note: The Unit ID can be a device ID as well as a radio ID, depending on the portable monitor s setting. 4.2 LCD Display (In Alarm) Monitor in alarm and selected (solid star) 2 Unselected monitor in alarm (open star) 3 Unselected monitor not in alarm (open circle) 4 Radio transmission indicator 5 Audible alarm on/off indicator ( on shown) 6 Battery indicator 7 Arrow to go to the next page when more than 8 instruments are shown 12 4.3 Specifications RF Certifications Display Audible alarm Visual alarm Calibration RF EM Immunity Operating Range Transmission Power Receiver Sensitivity User Interface Power Supply Max Current Consumption Operation Time Operating Temperature Humidity Dimensions Weight Package Mounting FCC Part15 CE EN SRRC(Pending) Customized LCD (1 x 1.5 ) with backlight 30cm 2 super-bright red LEDs None necessary IEEE /Zigbee with mesh stack No effect when exposed to 0.43mW/cm 2 RF interference (5-watt transmitter at 12 ) Up to 300 meters, line of sight Up to 18dBm (63mw EIRP) Minimum -95dBm at 2.4GHz Three keys (Y/+, MODE, N/-) D-size Lithium primary battery, +3.6V during transmission during standby Internal Battery: Up to 10 days External Battery: Up to 45 days -40 to +50 C (-40 to 122 F) 0% to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing 26.5cm x 9.5cm x 5.5cm (10.5 L x 3.7 W x 2.1 H) 0.6 kg (1.3 lbs) IP-65 Optional stainless-steel bracket mount or magnetic mount; wall mount for external battery FCC Part 15 Statement This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. 13 5 Operation The EchoView only operates in RTR (Router) mode. Therefore, when it is turned on, it is always operational. Whenever you start EchoView, it tries to rejoin the last network it was part of. Therefore, if the network is within range and if the channel and Pan ID have not changed, the EchoView should be able to rejoin the network without action on your part. Make sure the battery is installed before operating the EchoView. Refer to page 41 for information on battery installation and replacement. 5.1 Enable The FMC2000 Controller s EchoView Function The EchoView can only receive data from an FMC2000 Controller if the controller is configured to broadcast data to it by enabling its EchoView Function. Therefore, you should perform this simple configuration before adding one or more EchoViews to a network. To enable the Pager function on the FMC2000 Controller: 1. Press the MENU key from Normal Operation Mode to enter the Configuration menu. 2. Provide a 4-digit password (the default value is 1234). 3. Press Enter. 4. The General Settings icon is highlighted. Press Enter. 5. Scroll to Advanced Settings. 6. Press Enter. 7. Input the advanced (6-digit) password. 8. Press Enter. 9. Input the 6-digit advanced password (the default is ). 10. Press Enter. 11. Scroll through the options until EchoView is highlighted. 12. Press Enter. 13. Select All Alm (all alarms) or SNS Alarm (sensor alarms, including High, Low, etc.) by using the up and down arrows. (There is also a Disable option that shuts off EchoView functionality.) 14 14. Press Enter to lock in your selection and exit the EchoView Function menu. The FMC2000 Controller is now broadcasting its data for EchoViews. 5.2 Turning The EchoView On Hold down the [MODE] key and release it when the EchoView beeps. The display indicates that it is now on: The EchoView performs a self-test. The display briefly shows the firmware version: Next, it shows the firmware s build date and time: This is followed by the Modem Type: 15 Then the EchoView initializes the wireless network. When the network is found and communication is established, the main reading screen is shown. It includes signal strength, battery charge, and the identification numbers of all monitors on the network: The monitor name shown on the EchoView screen is the ID of the monitor s radio or the first four characters of the monitor s radio. Note: If no monitors are within the EchoView s range, its display will only show the radio-on indicator, battery charge, and buzzer on/off icon. If you see this screen, check the following: Is the antenna attached? Does the Pan ID match the network you want to join? Does the Channel match the channel on which the other instruments are operating? Are the other instruments turned on and within range? Did you change the Pan ID or Channel? If so, restart the instrument. Is the FMC2000 Controller s Pager Function enabled? If not, enable it. 16 5.3 Turning The EchoView Off Hold down the [MODE] key through the Power Off sequence. When you see Power off! release the [MODE] key. The EchoView is off when the display is blank. The EchoView is now off. 5.4 Battery Charge Indicator The EchoView s internal battery is designed to provide power for up to 10 days. When the battery gets low, the EchoView beeps once per minute and the battery icon is empty. See page 41 for the replacement procedure. It is recommended that the battery be changed immediately, to minimize potential downtime. When the battery is almost completely depleted, the LCD displays Power off, and the LED and buzzer alarms activate once per second. The battery icon also blinks on and off. The low battery alarm continues until the battery runs out. Then the unit shuts down automatically. Battery power is indicated with an icon in the lower right corner of the screen, below the wireless communication indicator and buzzer icon: Battery charge is shown from empty to full: Battery Charge Indicator Empty Full 17 Note: For a fixed-system application, an external power source, the RAE PowerPak, can be used as a substitute for the internal battery. Only remove the external battery adapter in non-hazardous locations. 5.5 Buzzer (Audible Alarm) Off Indicator The EchoView s buzzer (audible alarm) can be turned off, so the LED visible alarms flash but there is no sound when in alarm. The icon on the main screen indicates its state. Buzzer on Buzzer off 5.6 Wireless Communication Indicator The display employs an antenna icon to show wireless status. It is located in the upper right corner of the display: Signal Strength Indicator Signal strength is represented by vertical bars to the right of the antenna icon. The greater the number of bars to the right of the antenna icon, the better the connection quality. No signal Full strength Note: An X indicates no signal is detected. 18 6 Deploying The EchoView When deploying a MeshGuard network that utilizes EchoViews, make sure the rest of the network has been set up before using an EchoView. The EchoView gets its information about the monitors on a network from the FMC2000 controller. It does not aggregate network data from all its nodes. Therefore, make sure the FMC2000 is operational and in communication with all monitors on the network, as well as with the EchoView. Before deploying an EchoView, it is important to have the Pan ID and Channel number on which the rest of the network is operating. Without these numbers to program into your EchoView, you cannot make it communicate with the network. 7 Programming The EchoView Programming Mode is accessed by first providing the correct password.
