Connect Aeros with EZMQC

Follow

EZMQC 4.93 and above have the ability to connect with Aeros sensors. Following are the couple methods to connect Aeros with EZMQC. 

* Connect Aeros with EZMQC to the same network

     Option A:  Connect to a network hub using an Ethernet cable

    Option B: Connect to a hotspot through the WiFi connection

* Direct Connection between Aeros and a Computer using a Ethernet cable

1. Connect Aeros with EZMQC to the same network

You can connect Aeros to a network hub using the Ethernet cable or connect Aeros to a network hotspot through a WiFi connection. The computer must be connected to the same network as the Aeros.

Option A:  Connect to a network hub using an Ethernet cable

  • Hardware needed: Ethernet cable plugged into the back of the Aeros and the other end to a network hub.

  • Aeros is now ready to connect to EZMQC. Open EZMQC in the PC. In Sensor, click "Add Sensor" and select "Aeros". Select “Ethernet” and check the box "Discover and Select a Sensor in the Network" and then click "Search" to do an automatically searching. There will be a drop-down list of all available Aeros sensors. If the sensor in the list including IP address as well as sensor name, then it is connectable. If the sensor in the list with “??????” instead of sensor name, it means that EZMQC can find the AEROS, while AEROS is not free to connect to EZMQC. If you meet this problem, you can restart AEROS and click search again. Also, you can go to Aeros Essentials/Workspace menu/Diagnostics/Advanced, click "Restart Comm" to have Aeros communication available, and then go back to EZMQC and click search again.

 2. Direct Connection between Aeros and a Computer using a Ethernet cable

Ethernet cable is plugged into the back of the Aeros and the other end is connected to the computer. Ethernet adapter USB can be applied here if the computer does not have available Ethernet port.

  • Hardware needed:  Ethernet cable and Ethernet adapter to USB can be applied here if the computer does not have available Ethernet port.

  • Configure the Aeros: Open Aeros Essentials, go to Workspaces > Preferences > Configure Network Settings. First, select the Ethernet configuration. Uncheck Use DHCP for Ethernet Config. Type in IP address and Subnet Mask manually. The IP address here should be same as the autoconfiguration IPv4 Address in the PC, except changing the last number. The Subnet Mask is the exact same.
