Further information on the operating mode

Overview

The MultiSensor-LAN integrates a large number of individual sensors in a compact device and monitors their measured values. The MultiSensor-LAN is optimized for monitoring enclosed spaces and is typically mounted on or in the area of the room ceiling. The MultiSensor-LAN is network-compatible and is supplied with power via Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The MultiSensor-LAN can be operated as a single device (operating mode: Stand-Alone Device) or in a network (operating mode: Satellite Device) with other MultiSensor-LAN and other Kentix devices. The KentixONE software is already integrated via the integrated web server (HTTPS). Configuration is performed via web browser and, depending on the operating mode, locally on the MultiSensor LAN itself (operating mode: Stand-Alone Device) or on a central instance such as the SiteManager or AlarmManager (operating mode: Satellite Device).

In addition to the Ethernet network interface, the MultiSensor LAN has a BLE radio interface (2.4GHz). Additional Kentix wireless sensors can be connected via these in the Satellite Device operating mode. The MultiSensor-LAN then additionally works as an Ethernet radio gateway, making it very easy to set up stable sensor networks. The wireless sensors can be distributed within a radius of up to 20m, depending on the structure of the building.

Connecting extensions to the SystemPort

Additional system components such as leakage sensors, door contacts or external alarms from UPS or air conditioning units can be connected via the Kentix SystemPort. The SystemPort has 2 digital inputs and 2 digital outputs which are available via a RJ45 socket.

To connect external alarms, an expansion module (SystemPort) with the ORDER-CODE: KIO3 is required. Above this, 2 potential-free contacts and 2 changeover relays can be wired.

A commercially available network patch cable (unshielded/shielded) with a length of up to 20 m can be used as the cable connection between the Kentix SystemPort and the system component.

The Kentix SystemPort is not a network port. Avoid connecting to network ports, especially PoE devices. The port is a Kentix specific expansion port and is only expandable with components designed for it.

Factory settings

For initial configuration, use the IP address printed on the device or the address assigned via DHCP in a web browser (HTTPS). Please note the network settings of your connected PC.

The factory IP addresses at a glance:

SiteManager and AlarmManager192.168.100.222
MultiSensor192.168.100.223
AccessManager192.168.100.224
PowerManager192.168.100.225

Factory IP addresses, subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

For devices with a firmware version lower than 8.x.x, the login data for the preset administrator account are: admin / password

Reset to factory settings

  1. Restart the device (disconnect and reconnect the power supply).
  2. As soon as the status LED lights up green continuously, press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds until the device emits an acoustic feedback.
  3. The device loads the factory settings and performs a restart.
  4. After approx. 2 minutes, the device can be reached with the factory settings.

All existing settings and data will be irrevocably deleted !
We recommend regular backup of the system.

Assembly instructions

Kentix MultiSensors are equipped with various individual sensors. To ensure optimum evaluation and functional cooperation of the sensors, please observe the following basic installation instructions:

-Do not mount over radiators or air outlets or direct sources of heat/cold.
-Avoid moving objects such as fans, plants, trees, flags or similar in the detection field.
-Do not cover the sensor. The PIR sensor always requires direct visual contact for detection
-Do not mount in the direct air flow of air conditioning outlets

Calibration of the room temperature measurement

Kentix MultiSensors record all important environmental values of a room, including the room temperature. In order to achieve the most accurate temperature and alarm triggering when the room temperature exceeds the limit, it is recommended to calibrate the temperature measurement. This is especially necessary for sensors with Ethernet (PoE) connection, since a certain intrinsic heat falsifies the measurement. For MultiSensors with radio and battery supply, the influence of the intrinsic heat is not present.

Kentix MultiSensors are not calibrated devices.

In order to nevertheless obtain a good measurement result with comprehensible values in the event of an alarm, the MultiSensor should be calibrated to the respective installation location after installation.
For this purpose, the temperature in the immediate vicinity (approx. 5-10 cm distance) of the MultiSensor must be measured comparatively with an accurate room thermometer. If there is a deviation in temperature between the MultiSensor and the thermometer, the temperature value can be corrected. This is done by entering the determined temperature difference between MultiSensor and room air thermometer as correction offset into the KentixONE software. The correction has a direct influence on the measurement of the relative humidity as well as the calculation of the dew point of the MultiSensor.

Perform calibration as follows:

StepNote
Install MultiSensor at the destination.The position and orientation of the sensor should not be changed afterwards.
Keep the following in mind:
– Mounting with X air opening downwards
– Do not mount in air stream
– Ventilation vent openings of the sensor must be free
Perform configuration of the MultiSensor with Kentix ONE.
Earliest 30 minutes after startup
match the temperature of the MultiSensor with the room temperature.
To do this, measure the temperature with an external reference thermometer in the immediate vicinity, approx. 5-10 cm from the MultiSensor. It should be noted that this thermometer also acclimatizes to the room and displays the correct room temperature only after a few minutes.
If a difference between the MultiSensor and the thermometer is detected, this can be entered in the “Offset” field in the KentixONE configuration of the MultiSensor. After saving, the sensor then provides the corrected measured value.The offset can only be specified by whole degrees, i.e. without decimal places.
This results in an accuracy for the temperature of +/- 0.5 degrees.

Configuration with KentixONE

The configuration is done via web browser (HTTPS) using the already integrated KentixONE software. Depending on the operating mode (Main or Satellite) of the device, the configuration takes place on the device itself (operating mode: Main), or on a central instance such as the SiteManager or AlarmManager (operating mode: Satellite).

All information about the software is available in the KentixONE section and the related documentation.

Before you start the configuration, make sure that the software is up to date on all network-enabled Kentix devices. The version status must be the same on all devices.
You can download the latest software here: KentixONE
