Connecting to OR10
To PC through Ethernet
The OR10 Wi-Fi is automatically disabled when the OR10 is connected to NVGate with the Ethernet cable. Connect the delivered Ethernet cable between the OR10 and the PC. The Ethernet protocol used by OR10 is IP V6. Check that your PC's Ethernet adaptor is properly configured for IPV6 connection. IP addresses are automatically managed.
To PC or Tablet through Wi-Fi
Attention, NVGate is a real-time software which need to process gap free signal (no missing samples). OR10 being a DAQ, it sends continuously raw data to the PC. Using Wi-Fi connection is not recommended in buried environments or with high channel * sampling frequency configuration. Using a wired Ethernet ensures gap free acquisition and stable operations
Enable and setup OR10's access point
Verify the OR10 Wi-Fi is activated from the following menu on the instrument.
Press the instrument menu on top left of main screen. Then press the Wi-Fi button, the Wi-Fi menu is displayed.
Enable the Wi-Fi and install the Wi-Fi antenna (black) on the top of OR10.
Caution, do not invert the Wi-Fi (Black) and GPS (Orange) antenna. This may break the connector pins.
Bandwidths and locations must be adapted to the country where you operate the OR10 if you plan to use Wi-Fi.
Bandwidths: Pressing the top right button toggle the bandwidths between n / 2.4 GHz and ac / 5 GHz.
Locations: the location is adjusted from the NVGate Connection dialog. This usage does not require licenses.
Caution: the 5 GHz bandwidth is not compatible with World location. Selecting this combination from OR10 screen will block the OR10 Wi-Fi.
