    About Touchscreen Devices

    • There are three different model types of touchscreen devices. The TWE/TWP are touchscreen devices that are meant to be connected to the DicksonOne software application, and the TSB model is meant to be used as a standalone data logger.
    • For the TSB model, all settings will be configured on the device itself and for the TWE/TWP models some settings will be configured through DicksonOne.

    Quick Setup

    What’s in the Box

    Additional items included

    • Kickstand – used to stand the device on a flat surface when not mounted to a wall
    • Certificate of Calibration – Document stating the device was calibrated (additional fees may apply for NIST/A2LA traceable certificates)
    Start Logging Data
    1. Plug sensor(s) into the device
    2. Plug the device into power
    3. Press the power button on the side of the device to turn it on
    4. Proceed to ‘Configure Your Device’ below to change display settings, sample interval, and more

    Note
    Note:
    The ambient temperature and the ambient temperature/humidity sensors come with an extension attachment piece that should be used at all times and plugged directly into the device (as pictured above). Other sensors do not require the attachment.
    When replacing your sensors and swapping them out for new ones, consider stabilizing the sensor replacement in the environment that it will live in before swapping it out.

    Device Configuration

    Touch the ‘Settings’ icon on the bottom right of the device screen to access the device settings screens for device configuration and device information

    1. ‘Information’ provides details about the Model, Serial Number, Firmware Version, Mac Address, Attached Sensors and Channels
    2. ‘General Settings’ allows you to configure the device’s name, time settings (format, timezone, date), sample interval for logging, units of measurement, screen saving, and brightness adjustment
    3. ‘Graph’ area allows you to choose between a graph display or text view of readings, statistics, scaling, determine what channels to display on the main screen (two max), and set min/max on/off
    4. The ‘Network’ screen will be used if your device will be registered to your DicksonOne account. After connecting your device to the internet (WiFi or Ethernet), the device will display a 6-digit registration code that is used to register the device to your account. This screen will not be used for standalone TSB loggers.
    5. ‘Alarms’ allows you to enable the alarm (up to two per channel or one high and one low per channel)
    6. ‘Calibration’ will provide details of when the sensors were calibrated, and allows you to create calibration alarms as well
    7. ‘Stored Data’ allows you to download the data from the device using USB and/or also delete the tablet data.
    8. ‘Admin Settings’ allows you to set a passcode to secure the device


    Note
    TSB devices are configured via the touchscreen interface ONLY. The TWE/TWP device are connected to the internet via the touchscreen interface but logger settings will be configured on DicksonOne.

    Connect Device to the Internet via Ethernet (TWE/TWP Only)
    1. If you followed steps 1-3 above under “Getting Started” and the device is powered on, plug ethernet cable into the device and an active ethernet jack.
