Step 2: Setup the Converge Hardware
Now you have setup your login to the Converge platform it’s time to set up your sensors, repeaters, and nodes on-site, to start collecting data on your upcoming pour.
- Hub setup:
Position: Cental, high and in an open place Power: 110V Range: 30 to 50 m (Depending on the site layout) Technology: 3G/4G Led colors: Flashing green: Looking for network Stable green: Connected to network
We have found on the tower crane can be a good location, but not too high, mobile phone reception gets worse above the 40th floor.
- Repeater setup:
Position: In between the hub and nodes How to activate: Press the red button 3 times in quick succession Battery life: 2 to 3 months while on Range: 20 to 40 m (Depending on the site layout) Led colors: Blue: Stand by Red: Not connected to the hub Green: Connected to the hub RGB: Low battery
Install repeaters to boost the signal of nodes, each repeater should have line of sight back to the node(s) it is getting data from.Where multiple repeaters are needed, each one needs to be within 30m of the previous one. Because repeaters are always on, their battery life is around 6-8wks so keep an eye on their battery level and swap them out where necessary.
- Node Setup:
Position: Close to the pour, where the sensor is installed How to activate: Plugin the sensor in the Weipu connector in the node Battery life: ~1 year Range: 20 to 40 m (Depending on the site layout) Led colors: Blue: Stand by Red: Not connected to the hub or repeaters Green: Connected
We recommend placing nodes up out of the way, off the floor, to avoid damage during the pour.
