The first part to get the FX30 to work is to get all the physical wires and Sim card attached correctly. 

 

  • The antenna’s need to be connected with the orange wire in the lowest plug, it’s the one called CELL on the housing. And the blue goes to the plug called GNSS on the housing.

The blue wire is used for the GPS tracking and the orange is your cellular connection. 

  • The SIM card slot are just beside the blue wire, behind a protective cover. Remove this cover to insert the SIM card into the FX30. The sim are inserted as shown on the picture, with the notch in the right corner, and connection pad facing up. insert the Sim until you hear a click, and the sim stays in place.

The Simcard need so be a standard size, called miniSIM. 

  • The power connecter for the FX30, needs to be connected as the picture above. The black wire going to negative, the yellow and red wire going the positive.

  • Plug in the powerwire to 24V DC and the other end in the FX30, and you should see the unit turn on. 
  • Before going to the insight page, find a USB cable with microUSB in one end, and whatever your PC can use in the other. Plug in the USB wire into the USB plug in the DAU unit. 
  • Open your favorite browser on your PC, and go to 192.168.2.2 (The IP on your PC should not matter as we are connecting over USB)   
  • Here you should see a page like this: 


  From here you need to write down IMEI and Serial No. (you can also see these printed on the back of the FX30)

  • While we are connected to the fx30, press the “ethernet configuration” page, and write in what IP you want your FX30 unit to have. (if you have a controller called 192.168.10.25 the FX30 needs to be called something in the range 192.168.10.XXX but not 192.168.10.2, as you cannot have 2 units with the same IP in a network).

OBS: the IP in Ethernet Settings, can not be in the range of 192.168.2.XXX, as this has been reserved by the UBS connection. If your controllers are in that range, they will have to be changed. 

After you wrote the IP press save, and power cycle the unit.  

  • After the power cycle go to the tab called SIM configuration, inhere we need to set the APN for the SIM card. If you are in doubt, contact your SIM card provider, this is information they will know. 

Most times it’s possible to google what APN a specific carrier uses, so if needed google “company APN Setting country” and ofc change company for what company’s SIM you are using, and country with the country the unit are in. 

After changing the APN, Power cycle the unit again.  

  • If your setting are correct, your FX30 should have a green or yellow lamp2, and a red lamp1. Like this: 

 

  • Open your favorite browser and go the insight page ( www.insight.deif.com )  and log on to your page. 

 

  • From here go to Settings > equipment then press the 3 dots in the top right corner > add equipment.  Select whatever is closes to your unit type.
     you should now see a page called Select Equipment Type: 

From here you can set different searchable data.
 Equipment: Is the main name of the unit/site, is also the name the unit will have on the equipment page

Meta Data: Here you can write extra data, its not something you can directly see. But its data you can use when searching. 

 

  • Now we can choose if you want to add a new device/ or link a existing device to this equipment. Here we will add a new equipment, so press that button.
    from here we can choose if we want to add a controller, or a FX30 / Ex703
    Start with the FX30, so go to “New devices” choose FX30 fill out all the text boxes, choose what version of FX30 you have, and paste in the IMEI and Serial NO. from line 7.
    In here is also where can choose if you want geo location on/off and how often you want the GPS to update.
     when all data is as you like it. Scroll to the button and press save 

Remember to press save every time you change something. If you don’t press save you can loose all new changes.     
 

  • No press “add new equipment” again, here you can choose a predefined controller, or start with a blank slate, in this case I will choose a premade AGC-4 controller, as that already have 30 of the most used Modbus address added. Choose how many you want, and press save.

     
  • Now press on the pencil to the right of the controller you just added. From here you can change name, IP, Modbus addresses and write a small description. This IP is the IP of the controller you want data from. So change that so it fits.
    Unless you know port 502 will not work just leave it. Leave Device ID as is, only change this if you are using Serial connection. Read timeout is fine as long its under 10.
      
  • If you want other Modbus addresses you can add NEW from under the address list. You can find all our Modbus addresses on our website, (www.deif.com ) just search for the unit you have, go to documentation, and Communication. Here you can find the Modbus table for most controllers. Press save until you get back to the page called “select Equipment”


Remember to press save every time you change something. If you don’t press save you can loose all new changes.    
  

  • When you are happy with the controllers added press the “Save and Send Configuration” button. This will send the setting to the FX30, you will see the light turn off and on again. You can see the new setup by going into Unit Status on the FX30, here you should be able to see the controller you added on insight, like this : 

   

  • Connect a Ethernet cable from the FX30 to the controller, use a switch if necessary.  


Setting up a dashboard

  • Open your favorite browser and go the insight page ( www.insight.deif.com )  and log on to your page. 

 

  • Go to Equipment, if your dashboard is blank you will get a popup, just press Start designing. If you already have something on the dashboard press the 3 dots in top right corner, “edit dashboard”.

Start filling out the text boxes, Device is the controller you want to read from, choose Time Period, if you want to see the newest value, choose “Current Total” the TAG is the value you want to read. Choose what TAG you want to see, and press save. 

Remember to press save every time you change something. If you don’t press save you can loose all new changes.
