The AcoustAlert Stand Alone Set Up Tool
This is a simple but amazing tool designed to quickly setup the AcoustAlert field processor in situ. This utility or software tool can be simply installed onto your windows 10 laptop. It is not resource hungry so any entry level laptop will suffice. This tool enables you to connect directly to the field processor with your laptop and do the necessary setup and sensitivity level settings according to your physical fence detection requirements.
The laptop is connected to the AcoustAlert field processor with a straight LAN jumper cable (RJ45 to RJ45). Please refer to the manual on how to set up the field processor.
This setup process can be done for applications of AcoustAlert in “stand-alone” and “networked” installations
Each AcoustAlert field processor has a unique MAC Address and can be discovered with this tool by its MAC address. When you get your AcoustAlert field processor you will find this MAC address on a label on the bottom side of the device. In your packaging box you may also find one or two similar stickers with the MAC details, this is for you to stick near to the field processor mounting or into your site documentation for ease of reference.
Once it has been discovered it can be assigned an IP address (192.168.10.178 for example) and then communications with the field processor is established. You can use any IP address and give the device a name like “North Boundary”.
You can now adjust the detection sensitivity on the fence and the “general” relay output function.
This is what is so unique about the AcoustAlert design, there are no knobs to turn or variable resistors to adjust, it is a simple process to set up your sensitivity….
- With your laptop connected as above, cause an interference on the fence to simulate the detection you want to trigger an alarm.
- The detection meter (green bar) on the config tool will show you the response level created when you do this simulation.
- Then simply select a % detection just below this figure on the “input detection %” drop down box.
Now give it a test and when you get an alarm, the red status bar will indicate this and your relay out for the zone selected will also trigger. The LED indicator next to the respective relay will illuminate when this happens so you can physically see the relay has triggered.
Please refer to the manual. All parameters can then be saved to the field processor.
