Detailed Studio Software Setup Guide
Below is a handy step-by-step guide to how to Download the Software Studio and connect your device to the software, as well as how to start the configuration of the instrument.
First, install the software on your PC. You can do this by clicking on the link below. Once downloaded, open the software.
Ask for the software download link via our live chat!
Next, you will need to connect your device to Internet, you can do it from two ways :
- Connect it directly to a PC or laptop via USB
- You can also hotspot from your phone or tablet.
To connect via the Internet, simply plug your device into your computer using cable USB provided. Open the Studio software and select the tab «ThermaData®» in the top bar, from there we can locate the button "Connect the instrument to WiFi".
Once you click on it, you can select the network WiFi appropriate from the drop-down menu and enter the necessary details. You will see a green bar load onto the screen as it scans for available networks. If the network you are looking for does not appear, you can also type manually the name of the network, select WPA2 as encryption, then enter the network password. Now that it has found the correct network, the device has connected and displays an indicator of signal WiFi and a cloud in the upper left corner of the LCD screen.
Alternatively, we can also connect the device using an access point from a Tablet or a telephone. First we have to hold the buttons «Start» and «Max / Min» pressed until the LCD screen of the recorder displays «SEt UP». From there, we need to locate the wifi settings on the mobile phone/tablet and search for the networks available. You will see an item that matches your device (it will have a number in the name that matches the serial number printed on the back label of your device. For example: D17061188). Now that we are connected to the device, we can use the browser of the mobile / tablet and either enter http://my.thermadatawifi or http://192.168.1.1
*An important note at this point is that this page will only load correctly if the logger still says 'Configure' and the mobile/tablet is connected to the 'hotspot' of the WiFi thermometer.
Now that this page has loaded, it has directed us to a page of configuration, here are the steps to follow:
- Select network WiFi appropriate to which we want to connect, for example Production.
- Enter the password of the network.
- Once all the information has been entered, click on "Save configuration"
- The device is now connected to the WiFi network
As with the previous method, the device will then display a WiFi signal indicator and a cloud in the upper left corner of the LCD screen.
Next, we will pair the unit with the Studio software. To do this we must select the tab «Mes instruments», then type the serial number of the unit from the back of our unit to the bar “Add Instrument” at the bottom of the window. Next to that you have the option to allow the user by read only or in full access.
If you choose to select "Read only", the user will have limited access to the device and will not be able to to display only the information - not the adjust. This is particularly convenient when coupling of a recorder with multiple computers, you can choose to have a computer with a full access and others access in read only. For this you need to select "Read only" and enter the login key 8 digits on the back of the device.
However, if you choose to select "Full Access", the user will have access unlimited to the device and can adjust settings. To do this, simply select "Full Access". You can now see that you will be prompted to press the button "To start up" on the front panel of the instruments 5 times in a row. This will give us a unique pairing code which must be entered in the text bar of the window.
Now that it's over with hit, the thermometer WIFI appeared in the list under the name, followed by his number single series. At this point, provided you have chosen full access, we can now: rename the instrument, the to delete software and "dissociate" all other users of this instrument.
Then we have to enter the instrument settings. To do this, we simply need to locate the Settings tab of the instrument in the top bar of your Studio software. Once clicked, choose the drop-down list and locate the instrument
From here we can modify the settings of the device such as; Rate sampling, Rate transmission, Verification d'audit, Autostart, Enable or disable both sensor 1 and/or sensor 2, Name each sensor and program the authorized limits. These settings save you from having to run manually several of these instructions, which is a very fast aspect of the software, especially for your HACCP compliance.
Below, we explain what each of these settings done and the benefits for them.
Sampling frequency :
This is the frequency at which the device levies sample data from the item you are measuring and stores the temperature reading in its internal memory. You can set this at intervals of 6 seconds, up to 5 hours and 30 minutes.
The transmission speed corresponds to the frequency to which the device returns the data recorded in his memory internal towards logiciel Studio on your PC.
This NEW feature allows you to perform a "data dump" urgent when you press the start button. The device will immediately transmit all data currently recorded from the device to the software. It's very practice if you have one audit control and the listener asks to see the data of the day, you do not have to wait for the next scheduled transmission. The software will also clearly mark the transmission as an audit for you.
This function allows you to tell the instrument if you are starting to take sample data as soon as you complete the configuration parameters. If you want him to wait you can just click the button and he will tell you to press the button "To start up" unit to start data logging.
Authorized limits of the program:
This function allows you to define of the Limits at or outside of which a alarm occurs. It will give you the option for an alarm high and low.
Advice: every time of new settings are programmed in a WiFi instrument, all previous settings or recorded readings will be erased, so make sure you are already using the device to to transmit the current data you have to the software before you modifier them settings of the instrument.
